The only positive is the location. I thought the owners were very fake and all about trying to make PodShare look good on social media. We retuned one day to our whole pod moved around because someone needed to paint, could've been told about it in advance. We wouldn't have minded moving our stuff out. My personal towel was taken...

Podshare for me was quite an experience. I went once in July and once in August. Both times i was impressed. The pods are the best hostel accommodation I had while traveling. Both times I stayed there I was treated very well and I met amazing people. Its more of a community than a hostel. The community food was a... More

I stayed at PodShare for around four nights in August. I knew finding affordable accommodation in LA for the time I was looking to be in the city would be hard, but when I came across PodShare, it was like it just fell into my lap. Affordable and incredibly well situated to Hollywood Blvd, particularly Hollywood/Vine station, I was so... More

Hostels in LA are rare, and this is like none other! I was originally looking for apartments because I thought I would need the space, peace & quiet (I usually like the usual loud hostel but I was here on business). With only 10 pods in the whole complex you get the perfect balance of space and making new buds.... More

I don't normally write reviews, but PodShare deserves this! I thought that this place was completely unique. The comfort of the Pods was not matched anywhere on my travels, and the friendliness of the staff was also second to none. The Pods were perfect: sporting TWO PILLOWS, shelves, storage space, a white board for doodling, and to top it all... More

I stayed in Podshare for three nights at the start of July. I loved the small size of the hostel, and the pods were a great alternative to bunk beds, because you have much more space to store your things! The entire place is really clean - pods, bathroom, kitchen - and the free breakfast supplies were much appreciated! It... More

The concept of Podshare is a very interesting place to stay. You get really high comfort level for the price you are paying for(ie. you get a foam mattress, a couple of power sockets, a personal TV and quite an ample of clean spaces to place your stuff). The place is located 5mins walk from Hollywood/Vine Metro making it very... More

I stayed at PodShare for 7 nights, i was picked up from the airport which was a huge help! My pod was very roomy, i could put all of my possessions in it and still be very comfortable, it also came with a tv that had netflix amongst other things. The kitchen was great, it already had quite a lot... More

PodShare is a backpackers oasis! As I have been backpacking the world since my late teens, I have seen my fair share of hostels, and nothing compares to PodShare. With friendly staff, comfortable beds, amazing amenities, decent prices and a great location (walking distance to the Hollywood Walk of Fame) --why would you want to stay anywhere else! I will...
