Nice for the price just make sure you bring your slippers earplugs and sleep eye mask so when they turn on the light or they snore at night you should not annoyed them. Please be polite for your roommate, and the slippers is for the restroom. The bed is comfy for sleep. Convenient area.

Suitcases must be kept in a commons area and I had a carryon stolen or mistaken, but was never returned to me. The manager gave me a replacement piece, but the contents of used tickets and other merchandise were inside. I was really disappointed. But the price cannot be beat and I will likely stay there again because of its central location to everything. Russian is the main language spoken here but several speak good English. Be sure to ask for a towel at night since the front desk will not open until 11:00am. Good luck.

Our stay at the Rumi was okay. When we checked in, we saw that we were sharing with males in our room. I made sure to book a females only room and when I checked online, it said females only shared room. I was upset when they told us that we booked a room shared with males, but one of the employees (I think he was) offered us a private room, but smaller. I was so grateful for this kind gesture and for helping us. Throughout our stay, our bed was suuuuper creaky. I think they need to do some maintenance and check things that needs to be properly repaired and fixed. In terms of cleanliness, it was pretty awful. There was hair everywhere! Suspicious brown specs and smudges all over doors and walls in the bathroom. One of the shower stalls reeked of pee. I have seen people cleaning everyday, but I don't think they do a good job. Overall, price was very cheap, decent location, helpful staff, but cleanliness and maintenance needs to be improved.

I liked the place a lot and think it is one of the best cost-benefit hostels in L.A. My only complaint is that they emphasize that you have to be a traveler to stay there, they even asked me to show my flight tickets to prove that I was going to leave L.A, but in my shared room there was a guy that said he was living there for a while. And he was a highly inconvenient person. He would turn on the lights at inappropriate times, and watch TikToks while people were trying to sleep. However, the place is a great cost-benefit, the people there seemed nice and I would definitely stay there again.
