This place was SHADY!!! The location is in the middle of nowhere with a lot of graffiti. The staff were smoking weed and it was a dingy place. The dorms had no lockers to put valuables which made me uneasy. It's a place for vagrants. The staff were nice but it felt dirty and I didn't like one minute there. STAY AWAY!!!

The hostel staff here were fantastic! I took a trip to Blenheim Palace the day I checked out and they let me keep my bags there. 10/10 service for that! They are really friendly and helpful. The hostel is cozy with snug hallways, but has a great chill-out area with nice couches. The beds can get a little hot but they have windows in the room to open. The one complaint I had about the hostel is that it's right next to a EDM club that plays loud music until about 2am in the morning.

One of the best hostels I’ve been in, period. Nice common area to rest in, great breakfast and excellent location. Train station was 3 minute walk and tons of restaurants and convenience stores near too. NOTE: If you’re looking for a party hostel, this may not be for you. They do have a bar which was great but it is a chill hostel. Very relaxed and quiet. Not to say it couldn’t get rowdy, but that’s not the vibe.

Great place to stay. Middle of Hollywood and LA. The thing that would make this hostel better would be a better breakfast option (they only had self-made pancakes, fruit slices, and bread slices w/toppings). While this is fairly normal for a hostel, I think having cereal as an option would make it a much better breakfast. I loved how they sold locks for the lockers. I've stayed here multiple times and it's always a good time. Fun staff, great activities and the rooms are good for the money.

One of my favorite hostels I've ever been to. Safe, friendly staff, amazing activities and in the heart of BEAUTIFUL Santa Monica. My only gripe was that the beds are a little creeky and make noise when people shift around. Great facilities, great culture, you'll love this hostel!

Excellent location! In the heart of SF. Staff were amazing, the breakfast was decent and the overall hostel was world-class. Fast wifi (I hope in SF!) and a great culture of coming together. One of the best hostels I've ever been to!

The premier hostel in Hollywood. Private room is the way to go, $100/night in LA w/free parking and breakfast. Great activities throughout the week! We live in Central California and can have an amazing time in LA by coming here. Best kept secret in LA!

The staff asked for a $20 security deposit for the room key, which wasn't mentioned in the description. That was a bit of a hassle but otherwise a very relaxing Hostel in a great location!

Nice and friendly hostel. Staff was great, excellent customer service. It was a little hard to find parking, but welcome to LA. Location was good. Very comfortable place to hang out and chill.

Excellent location and free parking! I have stayed at various hostels in LA and for around 30 dollars a night, you are not going to find a better deal. Some of the hallway lights had dead bugs that needed cleaning out and sometimes the hot water in the shower would not work but I have stayed here multiple times and have had a great experience. If you are looking for fun group activities, this place is great too!

Great location! Room was hot and noisy due to being so close to the Kodiac Theatre but that was expected. Hostel breakfast was average, staff were awesome and bathrooms were very nice. If you want to be in the middle of the action, this is the place to be!

The best hostel location in LA! It's five minutes from the beach in beautiful downtown Santa Monica. They have an amazing Friday night club crawl and the facility was top notch. Far from Hollywood, so be prepared for a long car ride if you're trying to go party. My friend and I had to agree, this was the best hostel we've ever been to.

The hostel was very clean. I love the fact that the parking was free. For the location and the price, you can't beat it.
