5/5 for Location: Right on Hollywood Boulevard and LA doesn't really have a "city" part, but if it did, Hollywood Boulevard is it. The hostel is right opposite a shopping centre and the train station. Food, shopping and attractions are literally on your doorstep. 4/5 for Accommodation: The rooms were comfortable and very accurate to the pictures but they can... More

The Hollywood Samesun Hostel has great service and friendly people working there! They are full of advice on the area combined with genuine personalities that are easy to talk to. Workers encourage everyone to join activities and try new things. It's very refreshing.

From what I've been told about hostels, I was expecting nothing but awful things. I was so wrong. I loved it. Everyone was friendly, the common room was fun, and it was right on Hollywood Blvd. The only downside was no AC in the bedrooms, but with how much time I spent with new friends in the common room, I...

The only good point regarding this hostel is the location (if you support the noise of Hollywood Blv). The rest was extremely bad compared to other hostels visited particularly with the high rate paid. The whole hostel gave an impression of dirt and that nobody was caring about the general property and order of the hostel, even the personal. The... More

Easy to find and easy access to metro & buses. Really nice place,nice staff and big room. Maybe the streets are too loud at night but if you're tired it's not a problem. I loved it. I will definitely go back!

Thats prrty much i want to talk. But thats the bed part also. At night, lot of peple play a song and dance. Sotimes it's annoying. And at first, its hard to find a restroom. Because every single part of this house looks same.

The accommodations and hostel staff were all good. The location is great for public transportation options (right across the street from the train stop) and because it is right on the "Walk of Fame" it is a pretty raucous scene until the wee hours of the morning. Definitely bring ear plugs if you hope to sleep, or do the night... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
