Newest Review: ... then crash at the end of the night. The staff were very friendly, probably because most of them were travellers themselves who were just there to earn a bit of money. Because of this they could impart invaluable wisdom to newcomers about what to see, what to avoid etc. There was a real family atmosphere about the place, everyone talked to everyone and I was genuinely upset when the time came ... more

I stayed at USA Hostels Hollywood for a week in August 2004 and it was my first trip to the states. As a lone traveller, I did not know what to expect. I booked into a dorm room with shared shower facilities. My impression of the room was not great, it was very hot and the bed was a rickety old bunk-bed. I thought about complaining but then I realised something, I had paid £10 for a bed per night which was 20 yards from Hollywood Boulevard!...and they had paid for my taxi from LAX (included in the price). Lets be realistic, the place is a hostel, it's not going to be for the discerning traveller, it is a base from which to explore and then crash at the end of ... Read the complete review

My first impressions of this hostel werent good, and nor did it change while I was staying there. I only stayed there a few nights, as I didnt really like the place. It's cheap, which was a good thing as I was on a budget. It was loud throughout the night, the whole place was dirty, the laundry room was really small for the size of the hostel, and the staff werent over enthusiastic. A good thing was, that the staff gave us a tour of the hostel when we arrived. This is very rare, as most budget travellers will be aware. The area it was in wasnt good either. Even though Hollywood is meant to be glitsy and glamourous, it isnt. It's dangerous, and ... Read the complete review

This hostel is now located on Schraider Blvd just off Hollywood Blvd, it is a few minutes walk to Hollywood and highland entertianment complex and subway station which contains Cinemas shops and restaurants along with some of the other hollywood attractions like the wax museum. I stayed there this summer for 8 nights and I had a great time. It costs $20 a night for a bed in a dorm room, which each have there own en-suite bathroom so no communial showers. It has pay phones, vending machines and Internet access in the downstairs lounge and in the up stairs lounge/bar is a large screen tv. There is also a laundy room in the hostel for guest use. The bar is open ... Read the complete review

The official IYHA hostels in Los Angels are just a touch too expensive to stay at ($24) considering there are some excellent cheaper backpackers in and around the city. I stayed near Universal studios in the North Hollywood district at the Banana Backpacker motel and hostel on Cuihanga Blvd opposite the Hollywood bowl for a cool $18 bucks a night which included breakfast and a pack lunch on request. The location is the biggest draw back as you are trapped in the hostel as the slipway to the highway is right out side the gate so it requires some hot footing to get on to the pathways in and around the hostel but you can pick up the souvenir number plate of the ...
