Very good 8.0
First Time
As sleeping there is concerned that was a challenge, particularly the first and third time. I stayed at this hostel for three nights. I really didn't feel comfort early morning after the first night as I felt something/someone affected me and someone in the room was playing music with what I think was their earphones. I mean it seems to me it was still within the period of rest and I can hear the music. And for the last night I had difficulty going to sleep. One of the people in the room close to me and awake were oddly continuously cracking what sounded like their knuckles. I can easily feel the affects of others to add. The room felt stuffy/hotty with no air conditioner on too, so I opened the window a little. Some time later though no hours later but likely within the same hour a person under me shuts it and possibly because of the sound outside of driving. That was ackward. No words were exchanged between us. Note, the last time I used a hostel was probably in 2011. I value and prefer privacy and this hostel stay was an attempt to save money and for comfort to say the least.

A New Yorker in Hollywoodland
Stayed at the Melrose for @ nights, and overall my experience was a good one. The place was clean, the bed was fairly comfortable and it was nice and quiet the whole time. My only point of contention is that the posted time for check-in is 3-11, however I got a message from the property stating no one would be there after 10pm (while I was still mid-flight) which was definitely frustrating flying in from NY. They were gracious enough to forward the access codes, etc so I wasn't wandering the streets of L.A. late at night lol. My purpose for traveling meant I had to leave the property earlier than 7 am when there is a staff member at the desk, so I wasn't able to speak to anyone until my return around 4 pm and complete the check-in process then. The 2 members of staff I did interact with were friendly and helpful. My takeaways would be for the property to update their check-in hours online to reflect the correct hours, and to maybe consider having someone available (and also breakfast bc I missed out on that) earlier than 7 for guests that have an early start. I would absolutely consider staying at the Melrose again next time I'm traveling solo in L.A.

Very pleasantly surprised
I must say that I was favorably surprised with this hostel. This place is clean, tidy, quite, near public transportation and restaurant, and the crew were very, very helpful. The price was very very competitive. The only negative side is that the locker was very small, but they accept to keep bigger luggage in the office if asked , the free breakfast was really good for the price (coffee, cereal, fruits……etc ) I can definitely come back later and recommend this place

My favorite hostel in the world.
The best hostel I have stayed at. The. Best. Comfortable bed. Clean place. Amazingly healthy and plentiful breakfast. The staff was ultra helpful during my particular late night check in and early check out.

So so great!
I am a girl from Taiwan who travel alone in LA. The hostel is great, and I also met some great people there. The roof of the hostel is so great that has beautiful scenery. The most important is the employees are so so so nice. Overall, Melrose is a great place for me!

Great place and great price
I loved it , the place was better than expected and guests were equally friendly. The area wasn't the greatest but that comes with a cheap price. I did all my traveling by foot and never had a problem with the locals. Streets were trashed and littered and plenty of homeless abound but they didn't bother me nor did they ask me for money that much
