Stayed in a private double with ensuite - was cheap. However, very noisy as right on Fairfax Ave which has traffic all through the night. Free budweiser and cheap dinners were good and nice social atmosphere in the courtyard.
The bus to Disneyland that the hostel booked for us was great, at the bus company's reception you can buy disneyland tickets for $70 (cheaper than online or at the gates and no queues!).
Location was average, Melrose Ave was walking distance (great shopping!) but that was about all. Hollywood itself is pretty tacky & dirty, would recommend staying out at Santa Monica instead. Most Hollywood attractons can be done in a day so I don't think you really need to stay in Hollywood itself.
