The location of this hostel is great and within walking distance to shops, transport and attractions. Convenient if you don't have a car to get around in. I also found the staff to be friendly, flexible and helpful, if a little ineffective when it came to inforcing the midnight courtyard curfew. Almost every night I struggled to fall asleep as...

We stayed for 3 nights in December and the heating wasn't working in our room. We reported it and were told someone would have a look at it but it still didn't work. Breakfast was ok and the staff were friendly. Great location on Hollywood Boulevard, close to the metro for exploring LA.

This place was really ruined by the group of people that were there for me! The location was decent the rooms were ok. The staff not so good or helpful the bar crawl wasn't what I hope for. Loud English Juvenile's should be banded from drinking in group's.

We stayed there for 2 nights and it was awesome. They have party there, the location is fantastic and everything is clean and the staff nice. Although, I would have preferred a female only dorm, it was fine and I really enjoyed my stay there!

I stayed 8 days, and it was just freaking awesome. I might have stayed a little bit too much, but every night there was something to do, and I never thought I'd be able to get so much stuff included within the $30/night. Free breakfast, and free dinner/drinks some days were just absolutely incredible.

Stayed here for 4 night. We stayed in a 6 person dorm room. The rooms were great and each one had its own bathroom and kitchen and dining table. The staff were friendly from the moment we arrived and helped us organise some tours and car hire. Breakfast was ever morning and was good. They also organised fun activities at...

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
