    Just an absolute value for money. ”

    From all the freebies like 24hrs airport shuttle service and free shuttle service to other places like the beach, to the Breakfast, to the afternoon cookies to the glass of champaign every evening etc... It's really a good value for money. And of course, very friendly front desk staff and exceptional Gina at the restaurant. I am happy to have found this place. Better than most places one would pay too much for.

    Acceptable”

    Booked online, showed up, and was told that i am not able to stay in any of the dorms because i am not "international". Was told that i could only stay in a private room, at 7 times the price i had booked the dorm bunk bed. They said the "international" clause was in the fine print when i booked online; i have yet to find it, but maybe i missed it.

    Terrible place to stay. Had things stolen”

    I had my passport stolen from my jacket pocket within the first couple of hours of arriving. And then a few hours later I had my mobile phone charger stolen. This is one of the worst places I have ever stayed at. When I went and spoke to the manager about it he was EXTREMELY UNhelpful and rude and impolite and unfriendly. I would say it’s the worst place I have ever stayed. I suggest Agoda doesn’t recommend this place. It’s in a very rough part of Los Angeles.

    You have a promotion on the site www.agoda.com. This site has no age specifics. My mother and I are from Brazil. We came to Inglewood City and studied and they introduced me to this website and I made the reservations online, but I paid for the my stay until the 25th and the girl who works at the reception said that I can not stay because of my age, where is this on the website www.agoda.com the specific age that has to reserve ?? where is the specification and description about who can and can not book?

    Rolling the dice...”

    This place is perfect for transit through LA-LA land... is close to LAX, spacious and pleasing to the eye. Yet it must be noted that it can be subject to theft and police curiosity. After eating a burger down the road - I was sharing a cigarette with a man outside when the LAPD aggressively stopped to question my new acquaintance about his identity. I was told to put my hands on the hood of the police car while the man in question was hand-cuffed and apprehended based on previous weapons charges... at this particular time he was unarmed. The police were curious as to why I was in Inglewood (neglecting the obvious location and price of the hostel) and told me to "beat-it". I had no problems at the hostel but was informed by a friend a week or two later that upon his return (in wait of an outgoing flight) that he witnessed another guest have his passport stolen by someone who broke into the dorm. It's Inglewood. Avoid complacency and you'll probably be fine. Peace kids <3

    fantastic for some ”

    Wicked cool hostel in my opinion, i will definitely be back! Not for princesses, impatient people with no sense of humor, or family types. Pros. So much free stuff!, good place to party if you want, the staff were all super nice to me in a real, honest way Cons. Possibly bedbugs or fleas(or maybe it was mosquito bites?), not the cleanest but whatever, pretty disorganized

    Unclean, inconvenient but cheap stay ”

    The male dorm is unclean. No one came to clean for 4 days of my stay. 16 person in one room! No lock in toilet and not much clean (just okay). No locker in the room, just leave your luggage open in the room. There is a paid locker outside of the room though. Free breakfast just had one muffin and tea.

    Disappointing. Isn’t there any sanitary rules? ”

    Beds are ok, with clean sheets. The staff is friendly and the free shuttle service to the airport kind of makes it up for the awful location, the neighborhood is terrible! The place looks old and dirty. Found coackroaches all ober the place, and an ipad went missing in the room. If you are staying here to save money, think it twice. Not advisable

    Don’t rely on the shuttle service!!”

    The hostel is near to the airport and has a free shuttle service, thats why I stayed here. But the shuttle didn’t vome for 1 hour! Although they say every 20 min! After waiting 1hour I ordered a last minute uber and had to pay 12$. Nearly missed my flight.

    Very good”

    It’s a mediocre place to stay in. Though there’s a good swimming pool and a spacious commun area, the funny looking guests roaming around, smoking pot and getting wasted really won’t excite you that much to be outside socializing. Its comp breakfast consists of a muffin and coffee (better than nothing in my case, given that my stay was super cheap). It also offers shuttle service 24/7 if you’re lucky enough to be at the airport at the very moment it’s coming around (after two hours waiting I gave up and called an Ubber). If you walk in without booking ahead, the disgruntled receptionists who love to roll their eyes and give short answers (they probably hate their jobs) will have you pay full price without any mercy. Also, even though they have a hostel section, other than the cheap rate you can get through this app to stay in the bunk beds, there’s nothing remotely resembling a good hostel. I mean, so much for pub crawl, parties, events and whatnot... it’s just a hotel really.

    Disappointed and need refund”

    When I went to the property they’re were asking for additional payment because I’m already 48 and they said the amount I paid is for yo to 30 years old only. It’s the first time I encountered this thing and because I don’t wanna pay extra, they didn’t checked me in. It’s the first time that this thing happened to me and since I think I’m a valued customer, I think you should refund me for this booking. Thanks

    This place is fantastic value for money for your LAX transit location. Make sure if and when the airport shuttle bus runs. At the hostel, don’t expect bathrooms/facilities to be clean. You get what you pay for. I wouldn’t walk outside the hostel alone late at night.
