    Best hostel in Los Angeles, hands down. Originally booked 1 night here, and ended up staying 2 weeks. This place instantly feels like home, and provides the perfect environment to meet some of the greatest people and have a good time doing it. 100/10 would recommend you stay here.

    The room was nicer than I expected, but the mattress was too hard and uncomfortable to sleep on. I woke up with numbness in my legs and lower back because of the bad mattress.

    I was here for a longer period of time, 8 years ago. Back then it was a wonderful place. Having returned now, I can say it hasnt changed. It still is a magic hostel. It could however have been modernised and updated a bit. The paint on the walls is still the same as 10 years ago, the furniture is still the same and the kitchen with it's old and burned pots and pans, is still the same as well. That said, dont let this discourage you, in therms of vibe, it still is the best hostels in LA

    Overall a very nice hostel. My one complaint is that all the rooms circle around a courtyard. It’s very loud and drunk people stay out all night till 4am talking. One can literally hear every word they are saying. Please keep normal hours so people can go to sleep.

    Good hostel with strong social atmosphere and activities to join in. Good free breakfast and staff were always willing to help. It’s an older building and it shows but I think it adds to the experience. Beds were comfortable and patio is really nice for hanging out in. Feet from the Saturday market!

    I checked in and the other girls in my Room had stuff everywhere I physically had nowhere to put my bags. I asked at reception to move rooms and was advised the 3 girls would be checking out tomorrow so there was no need. This did not happen and for 3 days I had no room, no shelves, the bathroom I couldn’t even hang a towel anywhere. Absolutely disgusting which is a shame because I’ve stayed here before and was great. Wouldn’t stay again after this experience

    I wouldn't stay here again. It's inexpensive sure, but it shows. It was dirty/grimy. Very odd clientele, made me feel uncomfortable at times. Hard to find parking (doesn't apply for most people but the site lists free parking which is misleading) Top bunks had no outlets nearby. I checked out a night early to stay somewhere else. Just wasn't worth it.
