Property was nice. Followed a vintage motif. Nice room and bed. Staff was friendly. Hotel is near Broadway, spring, and other local downtown areas. The area has homeless and some dirty areas but also has several great restaurants and coffee places. If you like historical LA and or are going to a show in one of the vintage theaters this is a great place.

I had upgraded to a private city view room and ended up on the 6th floor across the street from the Golden Gopher. The roar of motorcycles until 3:30 in the morning and the crowd noise made it impossible to sleep. Front desk did not care and just shrugged it off. No coffee service but you can stand in line at the cafe in the lobby in the morning. One water station and only in the basement. Paid $25 for a resort fee and did not use the pool or gym. Nice rooftop deck, but you don’t have to stay here to use the bar. Overall, a miserable experience.

This property is one small step above a youth hostel. Great for budget travellers and young people but the area is dirty, noisy and unsafe.

It was a great stay. The staff was friendly and most of the guests are friendly too. It is a nice historic building and was very clean. The cleaning staff do a great job and clean the rooms every day. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms are nice. It is in a relatively safe part of downtown and one block from Whole Foods, which is a good way to save some money from eating out because you can put food in the refrigerator in the lounge. I didn't realize that parking there could be pricey, so I instead found a garage a couple of blocks away on Hope St next to CorePower Yoga, which was $20 per day, and it was monitored in person 24 hours by friendly staff. The lobby and the rooftop pool are beautiful.

I had a long layover at LAX and needed a place for the night…Found this place via Google… Couldn’t sleep at night because of how noisy the area . Too many beds crammed in one small room, tiny storage space for your luggage, lack of toiletries ( you are only provided with a towel). For the rate being charged for hostel accommodation, more amenities can be provided..I will not be recommending this place.

At night, it was cold and no extra blanket. There was no towel either. Staff is disconnected from each other.
