Liked: Location was good.

Disliked: The rooms were tiny and the beds were old and extremely creaky. No easily accessible charging points for phones. The shower clogged up for two nights of the three we stayed there. The hostel plays music until late into the night so people cannot sleep. Parking is not always readily available - had to park on the street one night. Would not recommend this hostel.

Liked: Comfortable - 8-bed dorms were split into two 4-bed rooms, which was nice. Having a kitchen in the dorm, and a bathroom, was also excellent. Free parking was fantastic, because this is LA, after all. Technically the parking is limited but we never had trouble getting a space. The dorms had fans and mini air conditioners which was lovely in the heat.People definitely hung out at the hostel a lot at night - bring earplugs if you want to sleep early.

Disliked: The WiFi cut in and out constantly, presumably because so many people were using it.Only a sheet was supplied as bedding, no blankets, so I ended up super cold overnight. Presumably more bedding is supplied in winter, and it's possible they supply it on request in summer? I admit I didn't ask.The blinds didn't block out the fluorescent green light outside the front dorm room - bring a sleeping mask just in case!

Liked: The rooms are cool, there are basic kitchens in the room as well as a bathroom. Free secure parking which I didn't use but will keep in mind for the future. Lots of activities going on all week (seems like they go all year round too). Rad little place!

Disliked: Honestly the only thing I didn't like we're the douchebags in my room but that's not the hostels fault. I guess a lot of travellers go to LA to party.

Liked: Amazing hostel. The Saturday night organised party was loose - 15$ got you dinner and beers until 11pm with entry to a decent club. Well organised hostel with lockers, decent wifi and breakfast in the morning. good set up to with the rooms opening onto the central courtyard - helps with minging.

Disliked: Slightly dirty (but Hollywood is pretty dirty anyway). Other than that, top notch.
