Liked: Loved this place! Staff are so friendly, great communal areas and the location is second-to-none. Make sure you get on the bar crawl that the guys outside the hostel are promoting. The free towel (there's no charge as stated on here) is a really nice gesture. Lots of plug sockets in the rooms too. Would highly recommend!

Disliked: The lack of kitchen facilities.

Liked: The Hollywood Hostel is Awesome...!!! Including a friendly and informative staff that are always willing to help you with whatever your needs are, smiling faces are the best way to start your morning... On Friday evening, mix and mingle with other travelers and staff while drinking vodka mixes, listening to the latest tunes and crunching on an assortment of good treats - maybe during a pool game or when watching a movie. Or, if you prefer, you can walk outside to a mirage of people from all over the world and people watch or enjoy the theatre, lots of good food, and shopping. Ideally located in the heart of Hollywood, CA. this week I watched while the Oscars are being set up - right in front of the hostel. I took lots of photographs to show to my family and friends back home -. Having decided to stay another week, I await the presence of the stars as they walk the red carpet underneath me, on March 2nd, 2014 – As all hostlers have a birds-eye view of them from the third floor window of the Hollywood Hostel. Thanks all...Great Stay!!! LR

Liked: Great location, really close to loads of touristy sites. Bathrooms were always really clean and the showers were good. Staff were freindly.

Disliked: Entrance was a little dodgy and common areas felt a little dirty/dated. Our room was ok, the beds were old. The plug in our room only worked if you held it in place. Staff were friendly if a little disorganised and distracted.
