Liked: Great location, just right on the Walk of Fame

Disliked: You can have a free breakfast from 7-9, yes, but there's only jam, toast, orange juice. While it's free, you can barely call it breakfast.

Liked: There was one member of the staff, Ryan, who was really proactive, helpful and friendly, even without asking. Big compliments to this staff member!

Disliked: The prices were very high, they were already raised because the hostel would be renovated, only the hostel was in the middle of this renovation causing a lot of noise and nuisance, it was hard to sleep past 9 o'clock. Instead of raising the prices they thus should have lowered them because of the inconvenience.

Liked: The location is really good - right in the center of Hollywood Blvd. You can see street artists performing on the street on which the hostel is. The room size(for private room) was pretty large.

Disliked: The parking is not included and costs 15$ extra per night and is on the opposite side of the road so if you have luggage etc. you will need to drag it along (not a long distance or anything but not right at the footsteps). We stayed in a private room which was pretty large but did not have a table (which was disappointing since it had a lot of space to put a table). Also, the women's bathroom was undergoing construction so was a bit of a hassle for my wife.

Liked: Absolutely great location and transportation (Subway across the street), currently under reconstruction, going to be excellent in the neatest future, also now is very good, expect it to be a very cosy and stylish place, right now it is almost like that. A very friendly staff.

Disliked: Actually nothing to dislike, kitchen is a wee to small, free coffee was not available

Liked: Samesun has such a lovely and welcoming atmosphere - from the moment we got there we felt comfortable and relaxed. The staff were approachable and happy help with absolutely anything we needed.

Disliked: The only thing that could have made our experience better would be better fans in the bedrooms, common rooms and bathrooms. LA IS HOT!!!

Liked: Fantastic location. Friendly and helpful staff. Very comfortable beds.

Disliked: Being on the Boulevard its very noisy but that's expected. Ear plugs and eye mask does the trick for me. Room wase pretty stuffy with just fans in room.

Liked: Loved the easy going vibe, the location right next to the Metro, Citysightseeing starting point and Hollywood Blvd

Disliked: Breakfast (DIY pancakes, toast and oranges) was a pretty unorganised, and the showers weren't great, but hey it was still good value compared to other LA options..

Liked: Location

Disliked: The hostel team served oranges in the morning, but unfortunately it was more on a first-come-first-serve basis. Would have been great, if guests that prefer to have there breakfast at 8:30 AM would still get some of these juicy fruits as officially the breakfast runs from 7 to 9 AM.

Liked: It is in the perfect location on Hollywood Boulervard. Opposite the Metro so can get anywhere pretty quickly. They have a pool table which is free and so much fun when trying to interact with other travellers. The rooms are really big and comfy.

Disliked: It was really hard to find when I arrived on the Boulervard at 7 at night; no locals on the street really knew where it was I just had to try and find the number. They are currently renovating parts so it is a little messy but I am sure it will look awesome once it is finished.

Liked: At first, I saw many bad reviews among bloggers but it was totally opposite from what they are saying. The location is perfect as metro station is just across the street. Every morning at 10 o'clock, friendly staff came into the room and clean it with grooms and sanitizers. The staffs were really friendly and they are always smiling. To be honest, this hostel is the best ever I stayed thru 6 consecutive months of traveling.

Disliked: Wifi does not connect well in the room and you should go outside (common area) to use Internet. Moreover, the hot plate did not work well, had to wait more than 10mins to boil small amount of water for instant noodle. (I even used hot pot in advance but it did not boil at all)

Liked: the location

Disliked: I thought there was a bad smell as soon as I opened the front door. The decor is horrible. My mobile phone and iPod were stolen on my second day. Another guest staying there had his mobile phone stolen, and the staff were just like "we're really sorry." Personally I suspect the cleaning staff more than the two girls who stayed in the room the night before. The rooms are really warm and stuffy, even at night when it cools down a bit. If you're room is at the front of the hostel you will hear lots of noise from the street, making it difficult to sleep. The common are is really dark, so it's only good at night time. The kitchen is terrible, it's split into tow parts, which is really annoying. Also, there is no oven, just one hotplate. So if you wanna cook pasta or rice etc. just hope nobody else wants to! The location and the friendly guests are the only good things about this place. So if you can put up with all those bad points, go for it! Otherwise, just look for a different place. All in all, terrible.

Liked: The location is awesome! Other than that a good hostel, clean and Definately value for your money as they are cheap considering the location. Overal great hostel, good vibe, location is spot on and close to everything (Hollywood standards that is).

Disliked: Only letdown I had was the staff sometimes. Not knowledgable, slow, not always willing to help (few exceptions there) and the weirdest thing was I was trying to extend my stay and had to pay 12 dollars a night more as of a "walking rate". Weird way to gratitude guests who want to stay so I ended up booking that night trough hostelbookers.
