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.

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.

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: 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.
