    Located strategically between downtown and Hollywood. Easily accessible by bus if you’re commuting unsure if they have parking for guests bringing car. Staff are friendly. Facilities are well maitained. Bed and linen are clean. Free breakfast is good as well. Will definitely stay here again when I’m in LA!

    Staff were really great and really sweet. Not a super social hostel, which is exactly what I was looking for. General location is central, but the direct surroundings felt a tiny bit rundown. Once I settled in I felt safe walking around, but the first night I arrived at 11pm and felt sketched out. Beds were fine, blankets really thin, and frames of course were flimsy so top and bottom bunk both move when either person moves. The breakfast offerings were really nice. Overall great value.

    Very central location, but not the best neighborhood. Good value for money, as you have free breakfast, TV etc. However, my impression was that this is not the best hostel if you are traveling alone and want to meet people. There are no events like free walking tour (but on my last day I saw that they offered an instragam walking tour) etc. , the reception is not open 24/7 etc.

    The location was nice but they don’t have parking nor washer & dryer which was annoying. The rooms are clean but they have a very bad smell. The facilities over all ok. Breakfast was good enough. Another issue is that they only have 3 shower rooms in the whole hostel and 5 toilets which I don’t think is enough if the hostel was full at the time I stayed.

    Most of the staff was friendly, the kitchen is VERY limited. There isnt a very comfortable place to hang out, and there is no light inside the building. The rooftop patio is great but it's too hot during the day. The dorm smelt like puke the whole time.

    There’s no kitchen, staff ok but a bit cold, they don’t offer you enough information regarding transportation means. Good breakfast but it starts late, so we lose it the last day because we had to arrive early at the airport

    staff is correct but not super nice they actually threw some of my pesonal stuff away and paid back for half of it they almost threw also a bag of clothes ; they are just not professional also, its a boring place, so difficult to play pool (needs an ID and a credit card like for renting a car) that nobody does rooftop is always empty, no music, no alcohol, no people, nothing to see from there the only good point : it is clean, and quite good location ==> boring place + you loose your stuf
