We stayed 3 nights in the hostel and found it to be really nice and the location was perfect for us to do little sightseeing in Hollywood and the Hills. Also easy reach to Santa Monica and Venice Beach. A big plus was on-site parking which was moderately priced. We would recommend the hostel to our friends!

We checked in for one night in December in a private room, which was quiet and at the back of the property. Expect a bit of street noise as it is so close to everything, but overall the hostel was quiet and we got a good nights sleep. The room was comfy and the shared bathrooms were very clean, always....

I came to this hostel from the scummy downtown LA, after spending one night in the haunted Stay On Main. I pulled up in my maxi cab, and was greeted by a cute white weatherboard manor. I walked down the path, past the well manicured lawns and outdoor seating area to the front door. I was buzzed in after telling... More

I absolutely loved this gem of a wonderful hostel. I tool the Super Shuttle fr airport to hostel, just walk to where the SS stand is and it costs $17 but very convenient and I didnt have to wait long. It is about an hour ride. First - it is all about location. This hostel is a mere 2min or... More

A very nice a quiet hostel. Rooms are a little small but not overly. Close to the main street in Hollywood. Lots of helpful information on places to see and how to get there as well as information for places to eat nearby. Close to bus routes as well as the train line.

I stayed here for a week with a friend and the hostel couldn't have been in a more perfect location. You're right by Hollywood Boulevard and below the Hollywood Hills and you're near good train and bus links. I highly recommend Orange Drive and will definitely stay here next time I come to LA

I stayed in a private double room, which was clean, HUGE, had a small ensuite, comfy bed, closet, and a dressing table. Very cheap, especially seeing as I was there for Oscars weekend. Breakfast was great (waffles, anyone?) and staff were friendly and helpful. It is in a quiet location, only a stone's throw away from Hollywood Boulevard and Mann's... More

We stayed here for one night in between coach travel from San Francisco to Las Vegas. It was easy to find and so close to the main Hollywood sights. The hostel had loads of character and an open fire in the lobby which was perfect! We had a private room with shared bathroom. It was clean and comfortable and we... More

This place is right behind the Hollywood walk of Fame + the Mann's Chinese theatre. I booked a bed in a shared room but changed my mind once I arrived and upgraded to a room of my own. The difference in price seemed pretty steep to me, but I didn't want to leave my stuff in a room with strangers.... 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.
