I loved this hostel! It's a renovated motel which they have made full use out of. There are activities happening each day and night so it's great if you're a solo traveller! The hostel is fairly close to the metro and just a 10 minute walk to the centre of Hollywood walk of fame. Highly recommend!

Not even close to what is shown in the video. Breakfast is cool , rooms are okay but avoid if you don't wish to be woken up at 3 am by loud voices of drunk people banging your room door. A very negative atmosphere all around. Did not have a nice time staying here.

One of the cheapest hostels in L.A for backpackers but its really cool, everything its clean , they have a lot of free activities , and the people who work here really help you with everything you need, besides its located only a few blocks away from the walk of fame

Awesome backpackers. Not quite the vibe portrayed in the video but definitely worth the money. We were staying as a couple and just needed a place to rest but the party downstairs on the Wednesday night sounded great fun. Staff were helpful and having a free car park is a bonus! Very fun!!

Great location on Hollywood Blvd, staff super cool and nice, big and clean rooms with bathroom and kitchen inside, private parking and always crowded by cool people! Really not bad for an hostel. I would absolutely recommend it for young people.

Really cool place to stay, cheap, tidy, friendly staff. It's a backpacker hostel but its location is just priceless! I'd definitely stay there again! They have free breakfast and free parking if you decide to rent a car. Also very safe!

My wife and I arrived at the hostel (for a 4 night stay) at 10am after a red-eye from Honolulu. The hostel had dorms and private rooms and we had booked an en-suite room. As check-in isn't officially till 2pm, our room wasn't ready but we were able to put our luggage in the luggage store and told to help...

When I booked this I was genuinely excited - the reviews were great, pictures looked great, location was great. However when I got here, how wrong was I. Myself and my boyfriend are travelling the states and this is probably down there with our most negative hostel experiences. The hostel isn't as fun as made out in the photographs, it's...

I had a private room which was spacious and comfortable, each room had its own kitchen so can save by eating in. Lots of activities organised which help see LA even without a car. The location is central with walking distance to Hollywood walk of fame etc.

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.
