Cancellations and/or changes must be made before 6:00 pm California time the day prior to arrival or the first night will be charged to the credit card. We do the best we can to keep you and your traveling companions together, but due to season and availability, there’s a small change of being put in separate rooms.

Liked: It was close to Hollywood Blvd. Friendly staff.

Disliked: In a dodgy area, in the first 5 minutes of arriving there was an LAPD chopper and 4 police cars outside. Dodgy hobos kept coming into the front yard of the hostel. They do a walking tour to the Hollywood sign and charge you $6 for the privelige when you can just do it yourself for free! You can order a shuttle to get to the airport but you have to pay them $2 at reception and $14 to the shuttle people when normally it's $14 online !! Shouldn't be trying to make money off backpackers.

Liked: Good security, location was okay.

Disliked: No chairs in dorm room which is annoying if you have top bunk. Very limited common bathrooms. Very high guy to girl ratio. Don't come here if you want to get laid. The smell from the kitchen seeps into the rooms. Dirty sheets. Eewwww. Very small kitchen and very ordinary breakfast.

Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful, and there was a really good atmosphere. It was clean and felt safe and secure, location was close to Hollywood and Sunset Blvds.

Disliked: It would have been better if there was free internet access on the computers, and if the vending machine worked properly.

Beach / sunbathing, Sightseeing & culture

Liked: Everyday, they propose a different activity to discover L.A (more about Hollywood though). They also propose a meal every night, for 6$, so those who don't want to pay too much for supper can have it there for cheaper. The access to the hostel is very secure. We have to show our card everytime we want to get in the hostel so that way, they make sure the only people in there are those who have a room. The rooms and the kitchen were very clean. Every night, there is a little something organised at the lounge, where you can buy a drink a lot cheaper than in a bar (3$!!) and they put enough alcohol in it. ;) The 3$ totally worth it! You must do the hollywood sign tour, they really bring you in a good spot (the best any tour has brought us). But don't forget to put on some good shoes because you will walk a quit long distance in the mountain (but it's still streets...). Just make sure you're comfortable ;)I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Disliked: Even if I liked the fact that they propose a meal for every diner, the 6$ doesn't always worth it. Maybe they should charge a little less. But anyway, it was still cheaper than the restaurant (but also less tastefull...but not bad!) The location is very good, you're close to a lot of things (5 steps to the Hollywood boulevard) and buses to bring you wherever you want (Beverly Hills, Santa Monica beach (it takes around 1h20 to get there) etc...)If you really want to feel in the typical California, you must book in Santa Monica too. If I had to go back, I would book 2 nights here, and the rest of the time at Santa Monica for the Californian atmosphere. Around the hostel in Hollywood, it's a lot more touristic. But still have nothing to do specifically with the hostel.
