Excellent Hostel But Pricey”

The social room on the 1st floor is awesome, it feels like a bar atmosphere and I thought it was one at first where you order drinks etc.. That said, I don't think can justify paying over $50 a night for a dorm bed in a hostel, but maybe that's just because it is Los Angeles. Pricey spot.

This is a hybrid hotel - where rooms and shared dorms are offered. I took the dorm and I still able to enjoy the rooftop pool and the free breakfast. Located in downtown LA and only 10 - 15 mins walking distance from Staples Center.

Nice hostel with valuable price”

I stayed for one night, and this place is located in a quite great spot! CVS is only 1-2 min by walk, and there was a city bicycle spot as well. The only bad thing was that there was no door for the bathroom so others can hear while you were using a hairdryer or getting makeup done. The hallway was kinda dark which made me a bit scared lol

Great location ”

Beautiful rooms, well designed. Comfortable and clean. Location is excellent walking distance to metro. Unfortunately I found staff to be very snobbish, specially the 2 women who attended me on my arrival and exit. No smiles less than friendly, in terms of customer service, less than average. Accomodation otherwise was fantastic.

Not Recommended — be careful for the charge (they could charge you twice)”

The receptionist was not helpful. I had a problem with my card and the receptionist said that he would ask the manager. He didn’t go to his manager, instead he had an-hour-conversation with his colleague. Even though I have paid the room via Agoda, the receptionist tried to charge me again. Luckily he failed. Be careful!
