      Can’t be better ”

      I love Melrose hostel so much! The bed is so comfortable and roommates are all nice.Melrose is the best choice for someone travels alone. I left all my stuff and hung out for whole day,the location is really good and you can take a metro bus to the nearest metro station or downtown.(BTW if you want to buy a bus day pass you need to go to metro station,where you can take a real metro:) The card cost 2 dollars and day pass cost 7 dollars). You can see the Hollywood sign on the roof.It is brilliant if you just come back and feel tired.Just sit over there, you will find everything’s perfect. The worker I want to say thanks to is a cool girl with a little bit green hair.She is really nice,explained so much for me and permitted my request once. I like her! At last!Give all my love to the breakfast Melrose provided !! Go ahead and you will never feel regret.

      The staff here at the Melrose Hostel were super helpful, professional and friendly. They were ready to answer any questions I had. Also the hostel was clean and very accommodating. Because of Co-vid, they have since stopped provided the complimentary breakfast, however the hostel is centrally located so food was nearby. I would recommend to anyone visiting LA for the first time.

      This is definitely a well-managed dorm hostel. Cleaning is scheduled every day but don’t expect spotless, considering the amount of people in & out. It’s the same with regards to the odor that filled the room. However, I can see the management uses air purifications in different locations within & it would be much better if the guest by the window is willing to open it slightly for airing. Overall, great staffs available to solve most concerns, a quality rooftop for shelter with good viewing & chilling area and most importantly a hearty bfast(whole & cut fruits, cereals, toasts, bagels, crossiants, danish & coffee) inclusive. Can you get better than that?

      Good breakfast and clean hostel, almost perfect hostel. Only two disadvantages: one is there is no kichen available for cooking by myself. The other is rooms are close to treet, there are too noisy in the midnight, you can't get into sleep without a pair of earplug

      Good value, nothing spectacular”

      I chose this hostel since I saw they give trips to the Griffith Observatory every Tuesday at 11. Please note, this is not a guided tour, it is just a one-way uber trip. You'll have to find your way back another way. However, overall it was a pretty decent value for the money. Just be sure to ask for earplugs upon check-in. You will need them to drown out the traffic.

      Bizarro time at Melrose”

      1. bathrooms: the (1) dedicated women's bathroom was hogged up by (1) weird girl who locked herself in it from 3/5-10pm EVERY SINGLE F'IN DAY with no action on Melrose Hostel's part to ensure that shared facilities are available to every guest. On the 6th day into my stay, I raised the issue with them. (Bathrooms are grouped together right by the check-in desk with a clear sightline from women's room to bathroom - awkward), yet, it continued and I just left two days early. (FYI: There are (2) unisex shower "closets" as well as (4) separate unisex toilet/sink rooms with (2) of them locked). 2. Location: I didn't feel safe after I was informed by another guest of a drive-by shooting he witnessed by the gas-station directly across the street from hostel during the day. Kinda depressing area... 3. Daily housekeeping: outside of the trash being taken out daily, seemed like bathrooms were cleaned weekly.

      Good cheap stay ”

      Good value for staying in LA. Dorms can get loud depending on how crowded it is but that’s to be expected. Easy walk to metro, buy a transit card and load it with a day pass, it makes getting around LA a breeze. Good Korean bbq nearby too
