Vito's place is very similar to the description. The location CANNOT be beat anywhere else in the city, especially with this price! You are within a five minute walk to the metro red line (and feet away from multiple bus stops). All of Hollywood's tourist attractions are also nearby, but you're far enough away that you aren't being kept up all night by tourists walking by.
One of my favorite parts of this place was the people. During my time here I met sooo many amazing people from many different backgrounds, and national origins. I ended up traveling around the city with them and the people are what made my time in LA absolutely unforgettable. While youre here, talk to people! Sit in the living room, or dining room, and enjoy all the amazing people that wind up in this place.
One thing to know before arriving though is that there are up to ten (or more) people to a relatively small room. You have your own bed (bunk bed), and somewhere to store your things. People leave your stuff alone and are pretty trusting.
Overall, this was an incredible place. I recommend it to anyone passing through the city.
