    Nice little hostel. Plenty of fast food options and a laundromat nearby. Free breakfast was a nice treat, included cereals, fruits, toast, and donuts/muffins. Took the flyaway bus from LAX to Hollywood and walked for 40 minutes. Could also catch the subway from LAX Aviation to Vermont/Santa Monica and walk for 30 minutes if you're feeling up to it. There's probably some easier public transportation options. Or you could just grab an Uber. Enjoyed my stay here though. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for having me.
