Decent Place to Lay Your Head
This place is a decent place to go if you need a place to lay your head. The staff is very warm and welcoming, as are the other guests. The facilities are decent, but the bathrooms (especially the showers) are a little lacking in cleanliness.

It was surprisingly ok, I had read the wonderful reviews and was very skeptical considering they were all positive. Someone had suggested to upgrade to those pods which I did. You'll get a great deal of privacy for your money. This a great choice for a short stay. However in this wake of Covid 19 I would recommend a different choices. Even though I was there for a day. It was clean all around I saw guests with masks, I didn't have one & felt pretty bad about that. Other than that, it was surprisingly pleasant. They have a great staff. If you can still remember how a stranger was nice 3 weeks later, it should count for something.

Cute, convenient hostel!
Super cute and hip hostel. It's worth paying the upcharge for the pod-style bed; it reminds me of capsule hotels in Japan, with more privacy than the bunks and personal outlets (with USB). Bring earplugs - the hostel is a bit noisy, and some rooms (like the pods) face the road and have windows that stay open. Cleanliness is a bit of an issue as there are only three bathrooms for the hostel (one with a set of three shower stalls). The floor in the pod room was a bit dirty and not cleaned regularly during my stay. Tip - the hostel is a convenient 10-15 minute walk from two red line stations. However, the walk to/from the Vermont/Santa Monica station is far more pleasant and less sketchy than Vermont/Beverly, so I recommend using that station (especially at night).
