The hostel itself is in a perfect spot on the Hollywood walk of fame and directly opposite the metro. Unfortunately, we arrived during a time that the hostel was renovating. There was plastic over our window so we could not open it to get fresh air. At 7am on Saturday, work began in the hostel - banging, sanding, removal of... More

Excellently located on Hollywood Blvd! Tours provided by the hostel, all free, Grant the Activities manager is great, providing any information you might want/ need on the tours he leads. Would definitely recommend taking all tours!! Only negative, if you don't get up early enough to shower, the water will be cold, all in all, get stay !

Hostel with the bathroom for girls on the first floor. No locker given neither bath towel. Breakfast very bad, almost nothing. Very dark lounge. Not very cosy and friendly. Very well located on Hollywood Boulevard in front of the underground. I have been said, too bad it is this one your first hostel because it is a bad one. Hostel... More

Loved the location of this hostel, literally on the Star walk on Hollywood Boulevard! The hostel itself is clean and comfortable, albeit the shower situation in the bathrooms is a little awkward (no private cubicle, so you've got to do a quick change act either in the shower and get all your stuff wet or alternatively embrace the life of...

The hostel was great. They serve good american breakfast, good wifi connection, and genuinely helpful staff. Its location is perfect, right across the train station, and few walks away from many attractions. Our room was facing the hollywood blvd so the view was superb. What I didn't like about it is the weird smell of the carpet that will consume... More

I stayed at Samesun in May, 2015 and I liked it. The hostel is what I expected for the price I got. When I stayed there, breakfast was very simple, with bread, butter and jam (what is really good for me already), but reading other reviews I see that is much better now. They were renovating the building too. I... More

Must say one of the best hostels we have stay at while travelling America. Location is perfect as it's located directly opposite the Chinese and Kodak theatre. Rooms and bathroom was extremely clean! Wifi was a little temperamental. Train station located opposite and numerous bus stops. The entrance is very small so we had a little trouble finding it to... More

It is so central and easy to get to and get around from. Saw 2 premieres; right on walk of fame; opposite Chinese theatre; hop on hop off big bus starts there... Really good and lots of activities in hostel. I was a bite certain after reading reviews but, I found it great!

The hostel is right in front of Hollywood/Highlands metro stop entrance, you just need to cross the street and find its surprisingly small door, so the location is quite good. After entering the door you need to climb up the stairs which might seems neverending and exhausting with luggages if there isn't anyone helping you. The prices are reasonable since... 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.
