Brilliant hostel!! The location is amazing-can't believe how close you are to the walk of fame!! Check in was very easy and the room we stayed in (private twin with shared bathroom) had everything you needed and was very good for the price. Rooms were clean, staff were very friendly and beds were comfy and there wasn't a lot of... More

I return to this place whenever I am in America because it has a good location, good information and affordable prices. If it was much more expensive then i wouldn't stay,but i like its atmosphere. Thank you!

Overall, I liked Orange Drive and, having looked at other hostels nearby, think that it represented the best value of money. I didn't have a car and came to LA by train, so it was ideal in that respect. You can get the Metrolink from Union Station to Hollywood-Highland, which is less than a five-minute walk to the hostel.

I stayed here for 2 nights while in LA in a private room and it was everything I wanted, the hostel is beautiful, it's a traditional hollywood house and doesn't feel like a hostel. The room was lovely, bed was comfortable, the staff were great and the hostel is literally minutes away from the Chinese Theatre and Walk of Fame.... More

I absolutely loved LA and accommodation always has an impact on your visit. We stayed in a family room for 5 nights with three single beds and a bunk. Room was spacious, comfortable with a balcony and decent bathroom. WIFI was included and parking also at $5 a day. Breakfast was complimentary until 10am and consisted of waffles. You could... More

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

Hello, We appreciate your review. LA is an extremely large and locations of interest are spread throughout the city, so it can take some time and planning to get to every location of interest, but Hollywood is a central hub for both the metro train and all major bus lines. And we provide printed public transportation directions to all major... More

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
