Liked: The bar, location, character, cleanliness, staff.

Disliked: It was a bit awkward just having the one shower between eight people with everyone trying to get in it at the same time in the morning. The other shower was always busy as well.

Liked: The location was cool. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby and of course all the cheesy hollywood sights. Also near metro/bus stops which I imagine would be useful.

Disliked: I found some of the staff i interacted with to be a bit cold.

Liked: Well run, clean, decent bar with cheap drinks, dorm rooms are pretty above average.

Disliked: $5 for the internet. After travelling in South America for 9 months where every hostel offers free internet for its guest this seemed a rip off.

Liked: The hostel set up was fantastic. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The rooms were spacious for hostels, the lockers had power outlets which was great for leaving things charging when you weren't in the room. The bunks themselves were sturdy and offered some privacy with the head section being enclosed. It also had a shelf and a light with power points which was very convenient. The bathrooms were kept very clean. The breakfast included cereals and bread rather than just pancakes.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: It is not a cheap hostel but it is worth its price. The staff is great. All rooms are cleaned ever day. You get a lot of extras - unfortunately you have to pay for them extra. They organize trips, parties evrything you may find exiting during the travel.

Disliked: Majority of backpackers would not afford it.

Liked: everything is as decribed on the website. taxes are included in the price which is a pleasant surprise. great location. super friendly staff. free breakfast, secure lockers(bring your own pad lock).loved the activities they organised--pub crawl, limo ride, beverly hill tour..... great atmosphere in the lounge. 2 dollar beer at the hostel bar. their beds feature screening, so you can have some privacy.

Disliked: unless your room is near the reception, the wifi doesn't work in your room. might have to go to the kitchen to be able to get it. the beds are nice, but not the steadiest. sometimes the reception plays music a bit too loud during the day. if your room is by the reception and would like to get some sleep during the day, you might find it a bit anoying.

Liked: The beds have lights and plug sockets. The design of the beds give you extra privacy. There were lots of activities you could get involved with.

Disliked: Check out was at 10am which I thought was quite early and the bar crawl was not great for the money you paid.

08 August 2012 Jonathan would recommend this property

Liked: The Hostel is very clean and secure. It offers large lockers with powerpoints inside, and a security door controlled by staff 24/7. The staff were friendly and helpful. All areas are kept clean. The events run by the hostel were great, and made it easier to meet people. This is a "party hostel", not somewhere to relax. WiFi worked well everywhere, even outside.

Disliked: As above, this is a party hostel. could be a good or bad thing depending on what you want, but probably go somewhere else if you want to relax or de-jetlag. Hollywood is a pretty seedy area, which is not a reflection on the hostel, but be prepared for a lot of homeless people and junkies nearby. Slightly expensive for a dorm room, but it is one of the better run hostels I've been to.
