The location of Orange Drive is seconds from the walk of fame and a view of the Hollywood sign - which is great but I stayed for 4 days and it took me hours on oublic transport to travel to and from Venice and Santa Monica beaches. In my opinion the activities in Hollywood will keep you busy for only... More

Recently stayed here for 3 nights in a private room with private bathroom. We arrived a few hours before check in opened but were allowed to leave our stuff at reception while we explored.

Hello, We appreciate the feedback and have changed the curtains in the room that you stayed in. The curtains now fully cover the windows and are thicker to block out the sun so that the room stays cooler in the summer. We don't provide milk because we had an issue with some guests drinking from the milk bottles. There is... More

Great location to see everything in Hollywood yet at the same time feel like your away from masses. Also, it us a cool heritage home with its own sense of history. It is not a social place, everyone seems to stay to themselves. Being old, noise travels in this place so you can hear everyone walking up and down the... More

Within one hour of being in our room we found bugs crawling in the bed, and within a few hours we were being moved into another room. We found in total five bugs. At first we were unsure whether they were bed bugs or not but after googling were now 99% sure they were. A mattress appeared on the sidewalk... More

We take claims of bed bugs very seriously! We have professional companies with bug sniffing dogs whom we work with. We encase all mattresses and box springs in plastic, all pillows have anti mite protectors on them. We have periodic inspections and treat rooms on a rotating basis. Without question, when this claim was made, we immediately moved the guest... More

Stayed here with my wife for a few nights near the end of April 2014. Good Hollywood location. As folks say - a stones throw from the famous Hollywood sights but still away from the bustle. Hostel was clean, staff friendly. Room was spacious and sparse. Our room was near the bathroom and above the kitchen and we found it... More

Perfect if you want to stay close to the most touristy location in Los Angeles. Clean and a very lovely staff. The kitchen caretaker is forever in my heart. A bit expensive compared to other places. But nice beds. Clean and close to the walk of fame.
