Run away

Just run away from this place! Terrible!

Age 30 | United State

I wish I could've given them 0 stars.

Where can I start? When I arrived I didn't expect a Las Vegas 5 star accommodation, but I literally got the worst service ever. I first talked to the people who run it on phone to clear out some details. They were very rude to me. I kind of dismissed it at first because like I said this is a hostel, so I didn't expect anything fancy. When I arrived the people started yelling at me for no reason at all. Then they started talking angrily in Russian and looking at me. Then the woman who runs it slammed the door in my face. In addition there is no parking and the neighborhood is not the best. I canceled my booking and left. This was just me dealing with them in their nasty looking office. I can only imagine what is inside. The scenes from the "Hostel" movie and some other scary movies ran through my mind when I was leaving. If you're coming from out of town this place is relatively close to NoHo Arts District and Universal Studios, but it's not worth it. Do yourself a favor and stay in a place where they don't have an attitude and know how to talk to people. I'm afraid buying positive reviews online and having a very very very old school Soviet attitude is just not gonna cut it.

If you like to sleep on the passage or in the kitchen, like the rough handling, you are intrigued inability to lock the door in the toilet, and enjoy bites of bedbugs, you will get an unforgettable experience of this sample of Russian-Ukrainian hospitality and service!

When I moved into the Timen's House it was so wonderfully welcoming to me that. I decided to stay and work my business trip from here. The place is like a mini-condo in the heart of North Hollywood 5 minutes walk from Oxnard and Lankershim, where you can catch the bus and head to the North Hollywood Station to catch the Red line Metro and go anywhere to handle business or pleasure in California. The beds are soft, the mattress less bouncy and clean fresh bed sheets, pillow cases and towels are given upon arrival. All in one the Timen's House is cheap with affordable prices and is exactly what you need when it comes to hospitality, good service and happy hostel living etc...like we always say "another day at the Timen's house".

Not so bad

It is not so bad place to spent one or two nights! no more! It is hostel. Pretty good price, TV, and free internet. If you have a min budget trip this place is for you.


I slept in the Kitchen on a futon

I arrived there and the first thing that happened is i was led into a room that had four bed and a TV. i thought ok this is pretty good. then i was led around the corner and there was two beds in the Kitchen and guess what -- i slept on one of them. I now have had the experience of sleeping on a futon that i could not pull out mind out in a kitchen that held another bed as well. There was also no stove in the kitchen -- apparently therr is one in the boys dorm but the woman have no stove. there is a microwave, sink, and Stove either. Guests are expected to provide our own Toilet paper and also expected to clean the bathroom and all areas completely. There really is no common room as there are two beds in the Kitchen and the TV is in the other room with four beds. On the internet there is no mentions of two futons in the Kitchen at all. The Garbage was piled high and the owners do nothing to clean or maintain the premises if the floors need to be swept or mopped the guests must do so. No vacuum is supplied just a swiffer and a mop and a broom. If guests want to wash their dishes they must provide soap and towels as none of this is provided. The bathroom is filthy as is the kitchen and everyone must provide their own toilet paper. I was not aware before i checked in that i would have to have my own toilet paper and cleaning items. I was also not told that i would be sleeping on a futon that would not be put down if it was there would be no room for anyone to use the Kitchen. The Bathroom is in the back part of the Kitchen so in order to use it the other guests have to walk right by the bed i stayed in to use the kitchen and the bathroom. I realize the cost is only 15 but wow even for 15 i dont think i should have to supply my own toilet paper and liquid soap, especially if i'm only there for one night and also there was no stove for the woman and on the internet it says there is a stove. No common area for people to meet and hang out, no services, no brochures, or Metro schedules provided. The only thing that was true is free internet if you bring your own computer thats it. I think they need to either add a stove to the womans area or tell people on the internet that there is none and also i think its good to mention that there are two beds in the kitchen which i'm still flabbergasted.
