Liked: Staff very helpful. Friendly. Louie particularly made an effort to get to know the guestsThe place was always kept cleanBreakfast was always goodPlenty of charging points for electronics.Reception was manned 24 hoursBbq's were also very goodTours were also very goodIt had a great patio for socialising.Good location to get around to see the many attractions la has to offer,

Disliked: The stand up entertainment was terrible. The jokes were just not funny. The first time I went, I stayed the entire slit. This was because there was now only 4 people left, and I would have been to obvious to walk out.The 2nd and last time, I stayed for 5 mi suites. The jokes one guy was making were really in appropete. The only one in the audience who laughed was a staff member from the hotel. Even the, I don't think it was genuine. This time I did not hesitate to leave. Some people followed after me as well.FYi: the host was ok, it was the other acts that were rubbish. Policeing smoking in the non smoking side of the patio would have been nice, becoz most nights the smokers crept on to the non smoking side, which annoyed me allot. Maybe have bigger signs.... Or maybe someone just needs to check every now and then.

Liked: Location, the wonderful company of fellow travelers who stay there and the patio where everyone hangs.

Disliked: The outside guest policy. They should go a little easy on outside guests coming in with hostel guests.

Liked: The location was excellent - just off hollywood boulevard. The place felt safe, and the facilites were great - we had a bathroom in our dorm, and the privacy screens are great too.

Disliked: I would have preferred if the bunks were a bit more spaced out so I could sit on my bed without hitting my head on the top bunk (I'm only 5'6").The staff weren't the friendliest, with the tour guides seemingly ignoring everyone they were leading (and the tour wasn't even free!). Come on guys, at least try to be nice.

Liked: Great breakfast, helpful staff (especially the girl at reception), good security and fairly good area.

Disliked: Noisy at night (there were people at the back / outside the hostel until all hours), sheets were 0% cotton - they became very hot and sweaty. Needed more free shuttles to the beaches - they are far away.

Liked: Free coffee, personal plugs and light by bed, clean and generally nice hostel!

Disliked: Could offer more tours... Their suggested hollywood bus tour was way too expensive for what it actually was! And that was without the ridiculous tip the tour suggested!

Liked: Cool place to stay right in the heart of Hollywood. Daily tours make it easy to get to some of the interesting places and meet people from the hostel and the shuttle to the beach saves you a lot of time on a bus. Brilliant beds which are closed off where your head is so you don't even mind too much when someone turns the light on, plus shelf, light and outlet at each bed. Staff is very friendly and some of them also don't mind getting in to a game of beer pong at night!

Disliked: The breakfast is fine in general (as long as you have the right expectations for breakfast in a hostel) but I don't get how you run out of all kinds of things so often. The only thing that really bugged me was how they want to make money from everything. Want milk for a coffee? Get it at the vending machine. Want us to call a shuttle bus to the airport? Sure, 2 bucks. Some of the tours seems more expensive than necessary as well.

Liked: Lots of cool people and there is always something happening. Good location, and in a quiet area. Little bit of a party place, which I'm not upset by at all.The patio is an awesome chill zone to kill hangovers and the lounge is good to chill in air con. The rooms are decent size.

Disliked: Nothing really. It was cool.
