Liked: Like that they offered free parking on-site; this is rare. The dorm rooms are small (usually 6 beds per room), this is nice because it limits how many people can come in and out - you can be a little bit more comfortable about your personal security and that of your belongings. Free tea and coffee all-day, and varied breakfast (cereal, porridge, toast and fruit).

Disliked: Staff or management pay no attention to people staying long-term in the hostel. Many people were smoking drugs, so the smell of these were constantly wafting around. Also, there is no curfew, so people can be outside making noise until the wee hours of the morning - don't guarantee you'll get any sleep! Half the lockers in our room were useless - also not big enough to fit more than your wallet, money and passport in - too small to fit your bags.

Liked: Good atmosphere. The bedrooms have individual kitchen and bathroom. It's well-located in Hollywood (one hour and a half from the beach). The hostel offers free hamburguers and comedy show in the other hostel in West Hollywood on Mondays and free tacos and karaoke in this one on Tuesday. Good breakfast, friendly staff.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

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

Disliked: Maybe that sometimes the parking lot is pretty full and there's another car blocking yours. Other then that i can't think of anything i didn't like

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!
