I liked the place a lot and think it is one of the best cost-benefit hostels in L.A. My only complaint is that they emphasize that you have to be a traveler to stay there, they even asked me to show my flight tickets to prove that I was going to leave L.A, but in my shared room there was a guy that said he was living there for a while. And he was a highly inconvenient person. He would turn on the lights at inappropriate times, and watch TikToks while people were trying to sleep. However, the place is a great cost-benefit, the people there seemed nice and I would definitely stay there again.
