Was like being among family - social enough but not a party house. Super central. I'd stay again for sure. And the calibre of people who were staying there was amazing - big names in the music industry.

The location was fantastic, only a few blocks from the Hollywood/Vine Metro so easy to get to from airport. Nice walk up to the Dolby, Chinese theatre and walk of fame. Clean, and only a few Pods available so it is nice and small, can get to know the other guests.

I stayed in a four bed dorm which was big enough to never feel crowded. Also liked the location, close to Broadway blv and public transportation.

Good location, clean and organised hostel. Seemed lacking in atmosphere but this could well be because we stayed only on a Monday night in January. I think this hostel would be ideal in summer. Our room had an incredible view of the beach and location was 10/10. Kitchen and free breakfast was so good! I would definitely stay again.
