    Melrose Hostel is a gem tucked away in the heart of Hollywood. Berdo, the staff member who was there for the length of my stay was kind, and greeted me at the door upon arrival. The build is very secure and they have strict policy about who is allowed in the building. There were only a couple of women who shared the 10-bed dorm room while I was there. So that was nice. Secure, uber clean and very spacious. I recommend this Melrose Hostel to anyone seeking a less expensive option. Worth it!

    They actually take Cov 19 seriously and clean 2 times per day. The location is excellent and the staff is polite. Only thing missing is a pool. Wait they have a pool table , does that count? Lol

    Staff very friendly/professional. Good area, in the heart of Hollywood and Major Studios. ... The area could really use parking garage... that is not the fault of the Hostel... just that parking in Hollywood sucks.

    My, oh my! Like my books from the library, this review is LONG overdue!😄 All I can say is that I loved every part of my trip in LA, including my stay at the hostel. The other guests were we're very nice, as well as the staff and I loved the location of the hostel, which conveniently met all of my needs (there was even a Bank of America branch not too far from the hostel where I was able to do my important transactions and there was even security! I've never felt so safe before!). I had a blast!

    Ostentatious in friendliness; however,-in addition to other guests-staff kept entering the room, opening the windows and readjusting the temperature in the room. One maid said it was their routine to open all the windows at 11:00 right before they come to clean. BUT. she never came back to clean. In fact. My bunkmate checked out and they never cleaned behind him nor changed the dirty unkempt linen on the bed. I stayed 2 days and the room was NEVER cleaned. Bathrooms and showers are in the lobby!
