Liked: Great facilities - free breakfast, $5 pasta night, reading rooms etc. were great. Excellent location very close to Santa Monica Pier and convenient for catching public transport.

Disliked: The Hostel is so big that some atmosphere is lost. I didn't like that the showers only have one tap and that you can't control the temperature of your shower.

Liked: Great location if you want to stay in Hollywood, though it's not the best neighbourhood. Free make-your-own pancakes in the morning - who can object. All you can eat dinners & good offerings of tours.

Disliked: Room was located at rear of building next to parking lot where there was a lot of noise going on at 4 am. Some of the staff were really friendly & helpful, but some others had clearly been there for way too long. Lockers are not big enough to put your suitcase in (everyone in the room had them under the beds). Next time I would stay in Santa Monica & not Hollywood.

Liked: location is right in hollywood which is good. all in all LA is hard to get around so mist locations wont be very central but this one is very good. Best thing is the powerpoints inside each locker and the power point with light in each bed. They even let you print your own stuff up Huge thumbs up!

Liked: Very close to Hollywood Blvd, free breakfast, great daily events & activities.

Disliked: Location is good and close to public transport, but it's a very shady area. Hollywood is generally very dodgy area. Would not recommend walking around alone late at night. Hostel needs to have more toilets and bathrooms

Liked: The rooms are perfectly designed for sleeping. stuff is quite friendly. There are services like shuttle to the beach and hiking tour for up hills etc.

Disliked: the floor is making too much noise while walking. makes it hard not to disturb each other once somebody wakes up... The location is in the heart of the Hollywood district but that makes it not very safe for late.

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

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.
