    Always living here. It has only 1 female dorm that for 10 people size. So you have great uncertainty of who you live with. It's all about luck. I've experience 2am checked out,3am with the room's door open, hot to wake-up midnights and so on. I'm sharing my understanding since it may be someone's first experience in a shared hostel. And I'm glad that the manager took his responsibility to resolve some of them. I'll be still returning but choosing the night with less people. 👀

    This place is great. Nice and spacious kitchen and dining room. The rooms are huge, and cleaned daily. Nothing was ever a bother for staff. It was a great experience

    Great place with friendly and accommodating staff! The facade is beautiful and the rooftop is a great place to hang out and meet other travelers. Parking is a little tough, but manageable as long as you’re aware of street parking restrictions.

    Not my favourite place, but the terrace on the roof is cool. Barely any cooking facilities, so expect to eat out, Melrose Hill is an okay neighbourhood, people say it's not great, but it's actually not that bad. Staff was serious, did their jobs well, but I think are on occasion stiffling life in the hostel with stringent rule abiding. This isn’t going to feel like a home to chill out in. But it's a bed, and not too expensive. The staff aren't bad people however. Owner lady is nice to chat to.

    Nice point of departure for all things downtown and Hollywood. About 15 min walk from Paramount Studios and 15 taxi drive from Warner Brothers studio, 30 min to Hollywood boulevard by buss. Great and clean facilities, rooftop with a view over the Hollywood sign! The atmosphere was quiet and there was lack of activities due to Covid but staff was attentive and friendly.

    Staff are just rude and welcoming. Did someone buy this hostel from somebody else. Because all the facilities are good, the systems in place are well setup and it sets itself up to be a good hostel. But you will find the staff unfriendly, unhelpful and uncompromising.

    Good hostel but weird vibe, staff did not let me or any of the guests extend our stay when we requested, made up some lie about being full with new reservations when there was open availability on Hostel world and other sites. Also saw a roach late at night but it's LA so maybe that's not on them. Overall decent food WiFi nice common area.

    The staff was perfunctory and not particularly warm or friendly. The location isn't great and the hostel very no frills. There was no free breakfast available. The lockers are small so people had their things cluttering the dorms. I kept my backpack on my bed as it wouldn't fit inside the locker. They had drinks available for sell in a small fridge that was locked, which looked trashy. Staff was seldom around if you needed anything so for the most part you're left on your own.
