    I loved EVERYTHING -Including location
    Nov 07, 2011 02:00 pm
    Just like the title says, I LOVED everything about this place.
    Fiance loved it too.
    Everything was much better than expected!
    I stayed from Oct 14th-21st 2011.

    This place is GENIUS for the traveler who isn't looking for a party pad--
    This is where I will stay for my next trip to LA, if Bo will have me!!!

    It is clean, quiet & mature.
    Meaning if you are on a business trip, you WILL get a good night's sleep!

    The whole concept of this place is just SMART!!! Even down to the energy saving lighting, the 2 choice flush toilets, the wonderfull rainfall like showers. The georgeous tile in the bathrooms.There's not much that hasn't been thought of!

    If you are self sufficient--this place is perfect!

    They have a kitchenette, which is a shared area with a wonderful Kuerig coffee maker, coffee/tea/coco etc is stocked & available at all times, as well as a microwave, sink.
    There is also a super easy printer & a quaint little sitting area that's always clean.

    The bathrooms are immaculate & just flat out pretty.
    The showers have shampoo & conditioner dispensers.
    There are 3 bathrooms & each is BEAUTIFUL.
    The towels are thick & the sheets are a nice cotton.

    The is a very well maintained place & I hope it stays just like it is!!!
    Bo is one of the nicest people you could meet, & checked in on us the 1st morning to make sure we were OK, as we arrived late in the evening the previous night.

    ***This location is convenient to everything.***

    The buses & metro in LA are extremely easy to navigate.
    Stayon Beverly is right on the 14 line(bus)-stops right there, you can bus back & forth to Beverly Hills, Cedar's Sinai.

    You can take the 207(bus) up Western to Hollywood Blvd.

    You can also walk to either the purple line (Rail-closest abt 10 min walk) or the red line (Rail-about 15 min walk).

    ***If you are coming from the airport--just take the Flyaway Bus ($7) to Union station.
    Then once at Union Station get on the Purple line (rail) to Western ($1.50) which is the last stop on that line. You can either walk to Beverly Blvd or take the 207 (bus) up Western to Beverly Blvd.
    We walked from the Purple line, with our carry-on luggage-- it was EASY.***

    The neighborhood is good, Mid-Wilshire/Koreatown. As the name would imply, it is mostly Korean, & there is a nice Korean Market just a 1/2 block from the Hostel to stock your mini fridge.
    There is a nice 24 hour diner just across the street on Western & a good place for Korean Food (look for the Pipers sign 1 side is Korean bar & rest the other is the diner). There is a laundromat around the corner, plenty of places to eat-both ethnic & american!

    What you see in the pictures is EXACTLY what you get, with the exception that it is actually nicer in person!
    The rooms are small, & safe, clean & comfortable.

    The memory foam mattresses are a god-send at the end of the day!
    My best sleep in months was at this hostel-I will be buying a memory foam mattress!

    Each room also has a flat screen TV with remote, a mini fridge & a small wall safe that you set the code for, desk, end table, lamp--if you view the website you will see just how it is.

    What you get here is an extremely clean & safe place to sleep with some *really great extras*, for an *excellent price*--The security codes are easy enough to use & a great idea.

    We walked this neighborhood a LOT even at odd hours & never had any issues.
    I never felt unsafe even by myself at night, & I am a petite female.

    There is a small parking lot in front for those who will be driving.

    This is a non-smoking facility.

    Also, 2 blocks over is Beverly Hot Springs--for those wanting some extra indulgence!!!
    Natural thermal spas-from 2200 feet down- It is a seriously layed out spa!!!
    We didn't realize this until our last day, unfortuneately,-but WILL definately be trying this out out next time around-they have a website as well.

    For those of you who are traveling on a budget & are looking for a clean, mature, & well kept, safe place to rest your head, & wanting a good night sleep--this IS the place, it is quiet at night & I promise you will love the beds as well as the bathrooms!

    This was my 1st experience with a Hostel, & really, since the rooms are private & security locked, it's more like a hotel.
    Actually, Bo runs this place so well--the common areas & the bathrooms are so clean-you'll forget it's shared!-you will have plenty of hot water-no matter what time of the day.
