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.
