I loved staying here. The pods are downstairs and there are only about 10-12 of them, which makes it easy to get to know the other people. There are also private lofts upstairs, which are basically like having your own apartment.

The pods have a nice mix of private and public. There is a television connected to the internet, with netflix and hulu included. There is a space for your luggage at the base of the bed, plenty of plugs for laptops and other electronics and a space to hang clothes. Additionally there are lockers for storage.

While there is your own space, it's primarily a social place with everyone in a large open room. To add to the social element, each person writes their name in chalk above the bed and leaves a personal quote for the next person to see. One of LA's most unique places to stay. Highly recommend it.

I adore this place and the owners!

My sister threw her Dirty 30th Birthday here this past weekend and this place was great!

AS A SLEEPING PLACE:
The concept of this place is that they are like a hostel - where you stay in beds and there is a shared space. The beds are REALLY cool. They are pods - 18 - and they are like bunk beds. One on the top and one on the bottom. They are really COOL. They each have their own TV with Netflicks, Vimeo, Flickster, Hulu on it. So you can watch whatever you want - using your own headphones. The beds are comfy too.

They also have two of the beds that are queen size (the others are standard). The queen size can fit two people. ONE PERSON, PER STANDARD BED. :D

The standard bed for a night is $40! That's really good for a place in Hollywood - near all the cool stuff. The queen - which you can share - is $60. Remember... this is IN Hollywood. They also have private rooms upstairs for a bit more but you get your own room and bathroom. Pretty good.

The beds are comfy and the people there - that I met - were foreigners and pretty cool. They really get tons of people from all over the world. The pods remind me of the dorm rooms in college. You have your space and it's really comfortable.

LOCKERS:
They have lockers for you (and sell locks too) to put your important stuff away. So you don't need to worry about someone stealing from your bed if you left it there. They are pretty spacious too. I was able to put four or five purses and boots in there.

AMENITIES:
They have computers for you to use and a lounge chair and a full kitchen. The bathroom is a full bathroom too. They really provide for their guests - blowdryer, lotions, hair stuff, etc. Yes... and WIFI.

They also have a webcam/photo set up on the wall - all touch screen - for memories and parties. You can do video and post it on your youtube or upload the photos on facebook. :D Seriously... awesome technology.

PARTY:
We used the entire bottom space as a party venue. It fits about 50 comfortably. They told me they once had 200. Damn. It was hard with 50.
If you have a party here - which you should if you have a small party - there is a $100 fee (and could be discounted if you help promote them - getting LIKES on their facebook). And another rule is that you have to allow the current guests who are renting for that night be able to join in on your party. No biggie. We met hot foreigners! Bonjour Frenchie! :D
If you really want the place private - just your party! - Rent out ALL the pods.
They give you free range of the room (my sister set up the DJ in the front) and also if you want to with no charge - borrow their beer pong table!
You MUST clean up after yourself afterward and have guests leave by 1.30am. The people staying in the hostel must be in by 2am.
They also provide free photography services - which they upload onto their facebook.

HOSTS:
Elvina and Joni are SO awesome. She really put her heart and soul into this place. Her dad built the pods!!! Damn. They really did a great job on this place. I walked in and I was impressed with the place. It's very modern!

PARKING:
Valet parking next door for $7.
Street parking

This place was great and I really am interested in throwing more parties here and renting out the pods. You should too! This is a great modern hip place to be for a GREAT price.

Be sure to book in advance because they fill up fast!
