    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!

    Melrose Hostel is and will always be my first LA home, the roof terrace is a magic space, if you’re an artist of any form, looking to see what Los Angeles is all about, the Melrose is a great starting point. The location is great for buses and navigating yourself by being just off of such a prominent hollywood street. The guys working there are a great little family. I respect and love this hostel a lot. I’ll be back to sing and write on the terrace! Big love Melrose ❤️

    The best part about it was the friendly front desk girl and the ample space. It didn’t feel cramped. Other than the showers maybe. The open areas were spacious and the bedrooms as well. They had free earplugs and it was very clean. Other guests seemed to be tired or not social most of the time though. Not sure why that was. The front desk girl was super friendly though and she even took a photo of us when we checked out and added it to the wall of guests!

    Good place. The staff were very lovely and helpful, they did all they could to help people. Towels and soap provided which was nice. Breakfast was okay, very sugary. Would love some healthier options I.e oats, eggs maybe. Also far too much plastic used at brekky, would love to see reusable bows and spoons and mugs.

    Good value for money. Free breakfast is decent. There is wifi throughout the hostel. Not much of a social atmosphere when I stayed. Only two showers shared by everyone but they were kept pretty clean. It is about 30 minutes walk to the metro station or you can catch a bus just outside. Keypad access tot he front door and dorm with lockers inside.

    I purchased this for three nights and only stayed one night. I was in a mixed dorm and there were no curtains hanging from beds for privacy. It was pretty uncomfortable to be honest. The guest that stayed didn’t clean after themselves, my sheets smelled like cheese, bathrooms were always dirty, s***y parking (I’ll let that slide though), overall... weird vibe.

    I stayed two nights at this hostel. I missed some more information upon arrival, maps, general tips or even some tours organised by the hostel. The staff at the reception was not very friendly and seemed a bit lazy to provide with any sort of information. The rooms are okay but a bit noisy with the traffic. The distances in LA are quite big and there is not much so see in this area so you will probably have to take a bus or an uber to go to Hollywood or downtown. Breakfast was good.
