    We had an amazing time staying at the Dormshare in Westwood! Very clean and comfy beds! The only thing that they can improve is the entrance sign and maybe put a light 💡 on that small alley.

    Stayed here overnight waiting for a flight after the summer quarter ended. The rooms and bathroom/shower were very modern, and the common area was great. I really appreciated being able to use the common area until 10pm after I checked out at 11am.

    All around a nice hostel! But be aware, you need to pay extra for parking. I know it says it in the description, but we missed it when booking.

    Great spot and close to the event I was attending! Loved the private bunk room with my friend but it was right next to the showers so was a little noisy. Other than that was a great stay!

    Overall, this space was really good. The location in Westwood was excellent-- walking distance to UCLA and Westwood Village. The parking lot was oddly laid out. There was much more space for vehicles, but they had it blocked off for some reason-- seems like a missed opportunity as parking around the location is VERY challenging because it requires permits, etc. The facilities were very good, but bc of the cement or tile floors throughout, noise did carry. I slept well, though, without earplugs.

    I traveled a lot last year in different hostel in Europe and US. This one was my worst experienced. If you're looking for a luxury homeless shleter this is the place. Approximately 40% of the people are full time resident and its breaking the spirit of a dynamic hostel. A guy in my room had his stuff over 3/4 of the space, personal fridge,smellin urine, eating schrimps with hand then touching the handle et light button. Even after talking with staff about this problem nothing change. Dont go !

    Caught a member of staff using bolt cutters to break into my padlocked cupboard. When questioned they said due to late check out. I was not due to check out until the following day but even if I was checking out to break into my personal belongings 20 mins after check out time it totally unacceptable. People are living and working here. Illegal. Residents take over dorms so it’s like staying in their bedroom. Whole place stinks of urine and weed. This place is a dump. Worst hostel ever.
