    Had a perfect stay. Can’t fault it at all. There were great resources on what to do and how to (cheaply) get around the city. Thank you for making my stay so pleasant.

    A perfect place to sleep quietly when you still want to be near the busiest attractions (walk of fame). I’m really satisfied with the hostel. Will recommend and def stay here again if I ever come back to Los Angeles.

    Everything about this hostel is fantastic. It’s a nice quiet break from the hustle of Los Angeles within walking distance to tourist destinations and Starbucks. The staff does an amazing job of making you feel welcome. As a female who travels alone, I value safety immensely and the staff takes safety very seriously. Plus, they have parking for a small fee. I love this hostel.

    Great place to relax. It's very closed to Hollywood Walk of Fame and right by Mann's Chinese Theater and Dolby Theater. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean. If you prefer a quiet stay, this is the right place for you. If you prefer party or engaging other hostel mates then this is not the right place for you.

    One block from the walk of fame/Dolby Theatre/etc. Very clean and quiet hostel. My only negative would be that they do not have lockers big enough to put a backpack in (lockers are quite small and I don't think there are enough). Also, when leaving your bags before and after check in/out, they are left in the front reception and not behind a more secure area. Other than that, I was very happy with my stay. There is also a nice area outside to sit and relax. I would definitely recommend it.

    Stayed here for 3 nights, 1 in a dorm and 2 in a twin room with a friend. The twin room is very private and one of the beds (in room #3) was more like a full. Only downside in that room is you’re quite close to the front door and you can hear people coming in if they’re being loud. Free WiFi and location close to Hollywood BLVD were fantastic. Parking is limited but if you are unable to get a spot there’s a garage down the street for $17. Breakfast could do with an update.

    Very Good

    Very nice staff, and a central location if you're doing the Hollywood tourist hellscape. But the dorm rooms facilities are limited: top bunks have nowhere to stash glasses / a phone / etc, let alone an outlet or any niceties like that. (My 6-bed room had 4 total outlets.) Lockers are all the way in the basement and small (not big enough for a suitcase, maybe a backpack). Was pretty hot inside during the day too, not super-well cooled.

    The lack of lockers big enough to fit my belonging (in the room) made me nervous, especially because there was a girl who slept on the couch who I think was registered to a different room. Having the air turn off in the night was really awful & turned the room into a sauna by morning. The quiet hours were not followed very well by some of the ladies in my room, they would come in late & be very loud--and one girl's phone went off numerous times every morning & she wouldn't turn it off.
