    Ok Central area.

    I heard some of the single rooms weren't that bad. But I heard some of them had roaches. I stayed in the $19 shared hostel and it was really bad.

    A little weird, but fine

    Cheap,a pool if you're into it, a shuttle to the airport.

    A little sketch, not the cleanest. You get what you pay for though, fine for the money.

    Its a dump!

    Not a single thing!

    You would sleep better at the airport! Too many people in a room. Bathroom was filthier than an NYC subway bathroom. No towels provided. The blankets made me feel like theyd been taken from a molested child and donated. Cerfew not enforced or observed. 50-60 year old men hitting on girls 18-25. Disgusting. Staff were no help with locating my room, rules, accomdations.

    Only if you have to.

    The free shuttle to LAX and champagne coupon. Ultra cheap dorm rate** free watered down coffee.

    Oh where to begin. The place is located in a undesirable part of town. It looks run down and seems to be more of a place that people stay long term vs a couple of days or so. They have cats everywhere, I literally counted 14 pussies roaming the property. Don't get me wrong I love cats, but I don't think it looks right at all. The dorms stunk and for a 20 bed dorm only to have one bath is totally unacceptable. And the staff could go through some customer service training. Really that's referred to the night crew as the day crew was ok with me. They have lockers for a reason, use it!!!

    Where is it??

    I booked a bed before I read the small print about no one over 30 can stay here. I realized this 2 days before I was scheduled to stay so I contacted management. I never heard anything back from them at all

    I landed in LA and drove to the address listed for the site and still couldn't find the place. Tried to call but again no contact with management at all. Address listed was in the heart of inglewood and a very shady area. The address given looked like an abandoned building and definitely nothing like the pictures that are posted. So after being unable to find the place and no contact from management,I got to sleep in the rental car for the night. When I got up the next morning I checked and was charged for the stay on my credit card. Love paying for nothing. The absolute worst part of my trip and I plan on disputing the charge on my credit card. Maybe I had the address wrong or it was listed incorrectly but some kind of communication from management would have been helpful.

    Drug dealers and prostitutes around pool area. Had a gun pulled on me outside in the daytime. Going out at night was clearly not an option.

    Cheap but sketchy

    It was cheap

    I didn't feel safe walking around the area. Went back to the hostel 'restaurant' which served a virtually inedible burger. Parking is limited and not assigned. Typical hostel bathrooms. I wouldn't go back!

    Not good

    Just the price

    The room with 20 beds was smelling bad, all dirty, bathroom disgusting.
