"This was an awesome place to stay, met a lot of great people here! They clean the rooms every day, which is nice, and no one is let into the hostel without a key car which made me feel safe. They arrange things for you…"

Liked: I travelled around America for 2.5 months and this is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. It's right off Hollywood Boulevard so the location is fantastic. Being a female travelling by myself I felt pretty safe walking to/from the hostel at night. Even though there is a parking lot right next to the hostel where you do see some homeless/shady people, there's a security guard in the other parking lot across the road so I just walked on that side of the road at night. There are two metro stops and a bus stop stop within a 5 minutes walking distance so it's really easy to get around. The hostel actually provides you with a list of all the main attractions around L.A and exact directions how to get there by public transport which really came in handy!! Most other hostels don't do that. It's also really clean, and also a really good place to meet people. I spent 3 days both at the begining and at the end of my trip, and both times I met amazing people whom i actually ended up sight seeing with.

Disliked: Like i mentioned, the parking lot next to the hostel is a bit dodgey. But there's a security guard across the the road so i never really felt unsafe, even by myself late at night.

Liked: Excellent location in Hollywwod, bathroom in the dorm and a lot of activities and a kinda nice formula for breakfast (all you can eat pancakes you do yourself).

Disliked: If the bathroom is busy, there are no other in the communal areas you can use. It is pretty noisy until 1 AM and if you open the windows in the dorm it get really noisy because there's a club and a parking lot just next door. The cleaning is not top notch to say the least.

Liked: This is the ideal hostel as far as I know, everyone is nice, it's clean and it's tidy. They also have events every day of the week, whether it's all you can eat barbecues, free beach shuttle buses, comedy night (some of the comedians were hilarious) or pub crawls. the free wifi also extends well into the bedrooms, which also had great beds with covers so when the light is turned on it doesn't wake you.

Disliked: nothing!

Liked: The tour of Beverley Hills was good and the meals in the evening too! Free Breakfast was great ... but I had to be up at 5.30am, but wasnt allowed the breakfast until 6.30, althought everything was laid out ready, so went without breakfast! And then the staff came and helped themselves!! Great that they put on all the tours and activities! Great stuff! Adam was a great tour guide!

Disliked: The noise in the evening/night!! No one bothered to make sure people keep quiet after 10pm, even though signs in the room say be quiet during unsociable hours! Reception could have more information about what to do, where to go, things to see, how to get around. Asked for a Map and got this rubbish print out of Hollywood with a few things marked on it ... how about a nice colourful, informative map of Hollywood on the front desk for people to see and take. Even an LA map would be better!

Liked: Excellent atmosphere! I really liked the bar and lounge, which are great for meeting new people. Despite having stayed in a 6 person dorm rooms, I thought they were really spacious and comfortable.

Disliked: I disliked the Fedex shipment facility, which is located next to the hostel. Loading and unloading of trucks starts at 5/6 a.m. and makes you think there's a construction site. This may only be a nuissance if you're staying in the back dorm rooms and between 5 and 6 am.

Liked: I stayed in a mixed 8-bed room. The room and the bathroom are clean. They have some sort of compartments for the beds, so I felt like I had more privacy during sleeping. They also supply free breakfast.

Disliked: The location is a little bit far from the train station (around 10-15 minutes walk) and the area does not feel really safe after dark. There was a little bit of issues during my check-in, but everything was eventually resolved.
