Recent reviews

Very good 8.0 From 1,034 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Nice hotel in a convenient downtown location. The room (king with city view) was large, clean and cosy. The bed was comfortable. We loved the window seat and the bag and coat hooks. What a great idea. Good shower too. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Nothing was a problem. The only con for us was the restaurant. We thought the music was far too loud and the menu was limited. But it didn’t matter - there was plenty of eating places in easy walking distance. Try Cassells right across the road. Mostly burgers but it did have nice salad options and pineapple pie to die for. Freehand made our first stay in LA a delight. We will be back.

Great place to stay
We stayed in a room with bunk beds - two adults and two teenage girls. It was a great family room. My only problem was the lighting in the room it was pretty dark and hard to find things.

In the heart of DTLA
It was a great place to stay in the heart of downtown. Lots in walking distance but for everything else the train station is very close.

Coolest hotel in DTLA
Great hotel in DTLA. Staff are amazing, facilities are excellent. The vibe is chill and there's a nice bar on the rooftop.
Peter, au1 night trip
Very good 8.0
The Staff were really welcoming and accommodating with my requests. Room sleeps 8 but I did not once feel crowded. Bed came with individual lamp, power, spacious locker, clean sheets and towel. Free wifi, a comfortable mattress and was very quiet at night. No squeaky bunks like at many hostels! Water pressure in the shower could've Been better and the lift while "kitsch and cool" is probably due for retirement. A little slow.
