If you want to stay in a hostel that is probably cleaner than your home in many ways than stay here. The staff work hard to keep this place clean and comfortable. I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm and enjoyed everyday. There is always something to do at the hostel and sometimes the food is free and delicious. Only drawback why it didn't get 5 stars was the other guests would steal my food from the refrigerator and the staff has no way of preventing this.

Very friendly hostel. Great location for urban shopping. Clean place to stay for a cheap price.

This cheap and cheerful spot appeals to backpackers and young international travelers seeking a good deal and fun central spot. Dorm rooms sleep six (there are girls-only rooms, too), plus some private rooms with baths in this unassuming hotel/hostel. The entry is locked, though the neighborhood is safe, but the 20-something staff is as young as most of the budget-minded guests. Foosball and a pool table with comfy couches fill the lounge, a tiki-style outdoor dining area serves free waffles every morning and $5 dinners every night, and a big kitchen is lined with fridges for guests use. Lots of perks include free Internet in rooms and on first-floor computers. A laundry room and parking lot is also available. Located smack in the heart of Hollywood, this place is close to the Farmers Market, Hollywood clubs, Melrose shopping, the Sunset Strip, and more attractions—all described in flyers and on bulletin boards in the lobby. Orbit Hostel moved here recently and merged.

This hostel is located on Fairfax - a couple of streets from Sunset Boulevard, which is great. I really enjoy going for early morning runs to explore a new city and it was a dream come true to be able to explore the iconic Sunset in the quiet (yep, at 7am is was occupied by just me and the tramps :-P).

In terms of the actual hostel, I was pleasantly surprised. I had a private room that I was sharing with a friend - it was spacious, comfortable and clean. As with any hostel, you have to be careful when it comes to security, however. While I was there two girls staying in a dorm had all of their possessions stolen (total nightmare) because one of their room mates had left the door ajar. You can also organise tours through the hostel staff.
