Worth my money
Hostel was pretty nice and clean. The staff was pretty nice. Only complaints were my fellow doorm mates, being a foreigner is no excuse for a lack of manners.

This is a unique place, no't too far from the station. Really good price and well maintain backpacker. It is calm and well manage. The surrounding area might seem ''no't safe'' but i think for L.A, it is kind of normal, just stay near the main street, the neighborhood is really no't that bad , really!

This property is located in a safe neighborhood in Koreatown. You can tell that this property is well maintained as they keep each area clean and organized. I was worried if they did not change the blanket, bed sheet, and pillow sheet like some other hostels. However, I found out that I was wrong. I love its simple decoration and bright lightbulbs in common areas. And, the property manager, James, responded my questions and requests very quickly. Last, the price won't kill you!

Carisa, us2 night trip
Good 6.0
Booked 25 days, stayed 19. Great neighborhood. 20 min from main LA attractions. Parking is a major hassle. People check into your room all hours of the night. I was the only female in a room with 2 men briefly. Pretty clean. Petty theft of belongings of mine & a roommates. Wouldn’t stay there again, but certainly good for the money.

Poor 2.0
I did not have a room to myself. I was basically in a room with some other people I did not know. I left the same day I checked in, it was awful.

Affordable place to stay in LA
Accommodation in LA is so expensive, I opted to stay in a hostel to keep the costs down. 8th and Ardmore is in Koreatown and is a short walk from the Metro, which is only $1.75 per trip even all the way from the airport. (I'm not sure I would feel safe travelling on it at night on my own though.) I did feel safe in Koreatown itself. The accommodation is clean and bright and the bed was comfortable. There is a cheap supermarket just round the corner and there are good kitchen facilities in the hostel.
