Expert reviews

CN Traveler review:

“Stylish hostels are nothing new these days—but this Roman & Williams-designed space, which opened in summer 2017, takes the lowly genre to new levels. Worth it for the Downtown location, affordable rates, designer interiors, and rooftop bar/pool.”

Featured in CN Traveler’s 2018 Hot List.

Telegraph review:

“This hotel-hostel hybrid is one of the coolest players on Downtown LA’s ever-growing accommodation scene. Stay here for the funky décor, social vibe and the tropical rooftop bar and pool.”
