Good but noisy

We stayed here because of the location, excellent for our needs. Public transportation almost right at the door. The hotel is in process of renovation, but it is okay. Clean bed and bathroom. We requested a "quiet room" but were assigned one looking at the street, which was tremendously noisy. Were all the rooms as noisy? We don't know, but we did have poor sleeping experience the three nights we were there.

Worst Hotel in Los Angeles

This was the worst experience I have ever had. I never want to return to this hotel nor the city of Los Angeles. I visited the hotel with my two sisters. They informed me when I tried to check in that my little 16 year old sister would have to have a valid ID and she is a minor she does not have no ID. They wouldn't check us in and they would not make no effort to work with us.

Great Value

This was a great value, especially for a last minute stay that was budgeted for. They need to paint the walls on all floors.

nice & near

The hotel is really in the middle of LA downtown, which makes easy to go anywhere. It has great amenities. Nevertheless, some of the staff was not very helpfull, and the shared bathrooms would be nicer with a little more of cleaning.

No Bathroom In The Room

I arrived at this hotel and from the lobby it look small, but quaint. As we carried our luggage up the stairs (ourselves) and waited for elevator I recognized that the feel was much like a dorm. We get into the old elevator, and when we get in the room, we realize that there is no bathroom in the room only a sink. They use a community bathroom, which is small and down the hall. I was not aware that I was going to be staying in a hostel. I may have been okay if I was informed of this before hand, but to stay in a tiny room with dingy sheets and dim old lights, was not cool.
