I have stayed here for about 2 weeks while I was looking for a room to rent as I was going to live in LA for some time. Honestly, I loved this hostel. I wasn't expecting the Plaza or something, so if you are - don't come here. This place was my home for 14 or so days, it was...

Excellent location, the staff were pretty helpful. I was a bit disappointed that the Universal Studios trip was cancelled as no one else wanted to go (and was only informed the morning of the trip). I had some good people in my room, otherwise it would have been hard to meet people at the hostel, although they do run activities...

Great value for money, helpful staff, plenty to do in the neighbourhood especially for gay guests. The ideal place to stay for anyone who is traveling on a shoestring! You even get a free breakfast and if you're travelling alone, it's easy to meet people there.

OVERALL: Great location. Cheap place to stay. Hostel has a lot of activities and tours which they arrange for you, so if you are here for a short time, this is ideal. It can become noisy at night, so if you can’t sleep with noise, this is not the place for you. MY STAY: I stayed here for three nights...
