"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: It is a nice place in Hollywood. You only have to walk for 5 minutes to get to the Kodak Theatre etc. Staff is very friendly. All you can eat Pancakes for breakfast (you have to cook them by youself but it is very easy!) They keep your luggage after checkout if you want it and it is very safe.

Disliked: The wi-fi is not working very well. Sometimes it does not work, sometimes only in the kitchen. The all-you-can-eat BBQ for $6 was not well oranized. They had no more gas for the grill after 15 minutes but we got the money back. I got my linen very late but that was not too bad.

Liked: This hostel has an excellent location. It is in between Hollywood and Sunset Blvd. It is very clean and all the facilities are in order. It's very safe. You can leave your luggage at the hostel all day during check-out and you can still use all the facilities.

Disliked: This hostel had a really weird vibe. The staff are helpful but they seem to be a little fake with the way they carry themselves. It is a very secure place but having to show your room key every time you enter the hostel is a little much (I thought others were whinging when I read other reviews but it's a bit weird when you're actually doing it). They had a really weird policy of not allowing sleeping bags in the room. Make sure you have a large lock for the in-room lockers. If you have a small lock, you can't it in the locker and you have to go and buy a large one from reception.

Liked: Excellent location just off Hollywood Blvd. Loads of hostel organised activities. Fairly clean. Good security (have to show your key to get past reception).

Disliked: NOT ENOUGH BATHROOMS!!! All of the dorms have an ensuite and there is only one additional bathroom that I am aware of in the whole hostel which was in the lounge area upstairs. Try sharing an 8 bed female dorm and waiting hours for the bathroom/shower each morning. It was a nightmare. This place NEEDS more bathrooms. If you stay here try a 6 bed mixed dorm (Boys probably won't take as long in the bathroom) or get a private room.

Liked: The Location is really good, right between Hollywood Blvd and Sunset Blvd. so everything is really close to the Hostel. Another good thing is, that there are alot of funny people in there. but be aware of this Hostel if you´re trying to have quiet nights. It´s a Party Hostel and there is something going on in there every night.

Disliked: nithing to dislike for me

Liked: The people, the facilities and the extra's, like cleaners every day, the washingmachines, the free wifi, the big kitchen, the bar at the hostel, the lights at every bed and ability to charge your photocamera etc at every bed.

Disliked: The hostel never went to bed. For ones who make fun that isnt a problem, but the first nights a was too tired to go out, it was very noisy. For me it was not a problem but I can imagine it may be for others.

Liked: The location is great right in the heart of Hollywood. They run a free shuttle bus to Venice Beach which is great. Having 1 bathrrom to each dorm room is great. The lockers were great having power plugs in them for seure charging. Staff was friendly, breakie was ok.

Disliked: The club near by was very loud and this is also quite a party hostel so noise from within the hostel is quite loud too.
