    Great location, friendly staff, excellent value for the money. This isn't a particularly loud, hip, or young hostel but you will get a nice place to stay and everything you need as a base to explore the surrounding area. Located in Hollywood just a half a block from the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd, close to public transportation and nearby canyon hiking.

    Had a great time here! I was nervous cause it was downtown and you just never know with hostels, but it was really clean, reception lady was a lovely woman with a cute dog and was super nice and friendly. The room was super cute and comfortable, wifi was great. Walking distance to Jimmy Kimmel, Dolby Theatre on a chill street. The room is pretty compact, but for the price it's good! Easy breezy stay for one night. Was able to walk to the Hollywood bowl for a concert and walk back no problems :D

    I was out in a room right under the stairs, with two outlets in the entire room that are literally as far from the beds as possible. And I had to kill several large spiders and some other bugs throughout my stay

    Wouldn't recommend the private rooms. Central location, historic home. Staff not enforcing mask usage in common areas or informing guests of requirement (mandated within LA county), and single rooms didn't feel like a great value (very dated, especially bathrooms). I left 2 days early due to not feeling safe in communal areas (I saw one guest wearing a mask the whole time I was there), but appreciate that they refunded me for the days I didn't stay.

    The neighborhood is full of not only homeless but drug addicts and drunks. We made sure to be at the hotel by sunset cause the atmosphere in hollywood became heavy during the nights. We booked the hostel instead of an AirBnB because it offered self service breakfast, but by the time we checked in they told us they didn’t offer any kind of food, not even water bottles. You could smell the humidity in the place. One time we arrived at the hotel and a dog had just peed over the carpet. Big room.

    Bedbugs found in room on first night. Severely itchy bumps all over skin. Accused of infesting room after first night by old rude Russian woman. Witnessed violence toward a girl by unknown male. Broken washer and dryer. Asked for crack cocaine twice by another guest. Unnecessary nightly parking fee.
