Liked: Lively, location was amazing, rooms large and showers clean. If over 21 lots of activities to take part in, and free coffee and tea all day in the kitchen.

Disliked: At night very noisy outside, hard to sleep till after 2am. Only due to proximity to Hollywood Blvd though, and if you plan to go out to the bars not a problem.

Liked: By far best value. Much cheaper than other hostels and still had everything that was necessary for my stay.

Disliked: Bathrooms were a slight bit dirty and there weren't enough showers for how many people stay there. They still do their room assignments on paper and the receptionist had difficulty placing people in rooms/staying organized.

14 May 2014

Liked: Nothing much It was very close to the Chinese theatre but that's about it

Disliked: The rooms were extremley hot making it difficult to sleep There is a big noise factor. If we had the window shut it was ok but because it was so hot we had to keep it open The doors need to be locked with a key and our roommates didn't lock the room You have to pay to use thr lockers and even then neither of our bags even fit so our luggage was in an unlocked room all day The one staff member we dealt with was very unfriendly and not helpful Didnt even tell us where our rooms were just expected us to guess The area made me feel very unsafe but thats just LA Beds weren't very comfortable and powerpoint was insanely hard to share with 5 other people most of whom had adapters Our roommates were also incredibly inconsiderate staying up with the light on till nearly 1 and had all their luggage all over the room No assigned beds despite tnere being a sign in the room saying to stay in your assigned bed
