    This hostel is in a very convenient location in Downtown LA. I felt safe walking to it at night. The room was very small but clean.

    Location is convenient. Design is outstanding. Rooms are clean and room service is doing a great job everyday. Rooftop with a bar and pool is great!

    Since it’s downtown expect loud noises outside. And I’m not taking about cars and traffic. Two early mornings of my stay there were some sorts of protests with people yelling on speakers. Hard to get quality sleep.

    Perfect location in downtown LA, it's a beautiful hotel where you are treated like any other full paying guest as one of the dorm-style members. Nicely decorated rooms with clean bathrooms and a fantastic rooftop bar! Much more comfortable and luxerious than most other hostels.

    The system for the electronic keys had some issues which only seemed to affect my dorm room, this was a little annoying, but can't be helped. Also they don't really tell you about the included breakfast, you have to ask for it yourself.
