Liked: One of the best atmospher hostels I've stayed at. The hostel has event on every day and every night for rediculous prices. Eg. Paid $20, which included something like 10 drinks, dinner, ride in a limo (that the hostel owns) and club entry. Room also had own bathroom, shower and fridge which was bonus.

Disliked: Not the newest amenities, and only small thing but anytime anyone moved in bed, the bed sqeaked that much sounded like a bad orchastra.

Liked: great atmosphere, very fun and young with lots of activities on offer.

Disliked: I liked its location on Hollywood boulevard but other than that we had to travel to all other places we wanted to visit. However LA itself is spread out.

Liked: Value for money can't be better anywhere in Los Angeles. Especially because of the location

Liked: Greta location! Really close to the boulevard. The room was spacious and had a kitchenette which was handy. Basic but cheap and easy accommodation.

Disliked: The party bus tour offered was overrated. It was cheap (only $10) but the alcohol provided was really bad quality and overall I would have given that particular tour a miss!

Liked: GOOD LOCATION.

Disliked: THE KITCHEN AND THE TOILET IN THE ROOM ARE A BIT DIRTY, WITH ANTS CRAWLING ON THE TABLE AND WALLS. SEEMS LIKE NO ONE CLEANS YOUR ROOM. IT'S NOISY AT NIGHT. THE CITY MAP IS NOT SPECIFIC ENOUGH.

Liked: There was a kitchen in the room which made it easy to cook. They provided breakfast. There was a good atmosphere and good location.

Disliked: Sometimes when you needed a good night's sleep there were a load of people partying outside really loud until the early hours. This would have been fun if you joined in but sometimes you need to sleep!

Liked: Community-like atmosphere! Basically, if you're looking for a place where everyone gets together, this is the place to be. The staff are great for everything from checking you in, giving info, chit-chat, ping pong and a lot more. The hostel is located close to the metro- 5 minute walk from Hollywood/Vine. Its CLEAN. Free brekkie, wifi/ internet, pool, basketball/ table tennis. GREAT ATMOSPHERE and DAILY ACTIVITIES/ TOURS. Thank you Jim, Jennifer, Mark and especially security man (for not towing my car!!) for a wonderful few days at VIBE!

Disliked: Not really anything to dislike! If you're not a night owl, music in the courtyard does go on til about midnight; but, if you're doing your trip properly, you should pass out upon hitting the pillow anyway!
