I had friends visiting from the UK that had never been to Southern California, so I booked them at this hotel. Location was ideal for tourists, and we took the Red Line down to the USC game, also ideal. The staff allowed me to keep my car in the parking lot for an extra 5-6 hours on the day of checkout, which I really appreciated. Next time I go to a show at Bowl, I might even stay there myself.
Old. Dirty. Poor staff. Smelled really bad.
Great breakfast / location Parking expensive
Location Seems like they may have a problem with people entering he back door from the hills. A door alarm was going off one evening and they seem to shut down the elevator in the back for this reason as well which is a little concerning.
Great location. Spacious rooms. Towels were a bit stained.
Very basic and there is no breakfast Location is excellent
So, to start off, let me say that this is not a hotel. It's a cheap way to share a room with seven other people and have a little base of operations to explore from. The thing that impressed me most was how clean it was. Every time I went anywhere in the hostel, there was someone cleaning something. I felt very comfortable in that. Also, having a lot of internationals around makes for great conversation. And the staff was very friendly and helpful. Great stay overall! The only thing I didn't really enjoy as much (and this really couldn't be avoided) was sharing a room with 7 people. Not that they weren't nice; just the awkwardness of not having much privacy and trying not to make much noise when you come in late or head out early. Other than that, it was great.
Surprisingly clean. Communal lavatories and bathrooms. But this is a hostel so it's acceptable.
