Liked: Great atmosphere. That's by far the best part. Open social area to meet people and hang out. Love the free muffins in the morning, free cookies in the afternoon, and free fries, tater tots, rice, and jalapeno nachos in the evening. The free champagne (two glasses) is great as is the 24/7 supply of coffee, tea, and popcorn. Free internet available in the lobby and social area around the pool. The lockers and secure parking area in the back is nice. It's very close to the airport and they offer free shuttle services all day and night. Warm and clean pool available and plenty of area to go sunbathing.

Disliked: Staff all seem pretty unhappy. Unpaid and overstressed by the employers. It was quite common to find staff yelling at the customers, even flicking them off and cussing them out. They can at times be short and rude, walking up to the jukebox and turning it off without explanation after hours when someone's trying to flip through the music, etc. It can also be a bit messy, there's ants and spiders around, and I even found a bed bug (a mite of some sort) in my bed one evening. A number of people have complained of bugs. I do find myself itching in the dorm beds. Not sure how clean they keep them. The area is in a sketchy and unsafe area. (The Taco Bell down the street has bullet proof glass at the ordering counter.. something I've never seen anywhere else.) I wouldn't suggest going out alone here at night, but inside the complex it's safe and I never felt in danger. The pool tables aren't supposed to be used at night, but there's no signs. If you use them after a certain hour, the staff will come out and yell at you. Usually they'll give you your money back if you ask them though.

Liked: they really provide free transfer from the airport and back, to the beach. you just need to prepare, that it may take 1 hour longer than promised... the price is the best we found in LA. also has secured parking inside the property.

Disliked: ants everywhere, even in beds. very poor breakfast. staff is not too friendly, at least not all of them. but ok for the price.

Liked: GREAT IF YOU'RE BUDGETING. This is one of the few accommodation that actually provide the services advertised.Facilities are great and spacious.

Disliked: Location is not great especially if you want to party late in the evening in Downtown or Hollywood and you don't drive, have a car or can't afford the taxi fare. During the day, when public transport is working, the free shuttle makes up for it.

Backpacking / gap year

07 July 2010

Liked: the 24 hr shuttle is a life saver and the shuttle drivers are especially milissa is very very nice! there are also lots of food places around the hostel (if you dare to step outside after dark). and the heated pool although tiny, is nice.

Disliked: where do i start?!?! 1. the toilets were blocked EVERYDAY and one point the showers didnt work either. 2. the WiFi connection is next to nonexistant many of the guests i spoke to complained about it. 3. it is a pig sty at any time of day or night, im not sure they even have maids to clean the place. 4. the staff (esp the manager and reception staff) are very rude, unhelpful, uninformed, english is clearly not their first language and slow. 5. location is hellish - its at least an hr away from anywhere you may want to go and is in inglewood - which IS like the hollywood movies and descriptions rapped by Dr Dre etc. 6. the dorms are big and disgusting with creeky old bunkbeds which are too small.

Liked: The hostel itself is pretty awesome. The location is in a sketchy place but close to the airport. The staff is unhappy and stressed out and it shows in how they treat their customers. That said, I keep going back because the people that stay there are awesome. Lots of backpackers from around the world and great energy.

20 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: for a hostel of such cheap price, it's good. free buffet, muffin, cake, popcorn, tea and coffee, but don't expect them to be high quality. the 20-bed dorm is ok for about 10 people. it won't be too comfortable for 20 people. (imagine 20 people share one bathroom!) besides, if you're very sensitive to noise, you'd better reconsider it. the sound of airplanes and loud music near the pool could be annoying.

Liked: Funny hostel with free champagne, breakfast, cake, muffins...Very friendly and professional staff and very clean (they change the bed every day and you'll get a clean towel every day). They also offer a pick up services to the metro, beach, airport 24H a day and we only need to wait for less than 15 minutes. Perfect hostel!

Liked: The hostel is not in a safe area but it doesn't really matter as long as you don't walk around at night. They pick you up and drop you off at the airport and bus stop which makes things easy. All the free stuff is fantastic.

Daniel Roberts

19 April 2010

Liked: Room was freezing at night due to lack of heating. Inglewood is a rough area and not really much happening. Wasn't a big fan of LA in general to be honest. I would definately pay a little more and get a place around Holywood. Way better there. Some of the staff were also far from helpful (rude almost). Cheap, but its obvious why!

Liked: clean, cheap and close to the main places in LA. However those are the only qualities. You do not have any comfort, beds are narrow and mattress not good quality besides you sleep with 20 people on the room so you gotta be very concentrated to sleep. If you want to save money, it is a good option.
