I stayed for a few nights with a friend in one of their twin rooms. The Hostel is in a great location about 200 meters from the walk of fame. They have free wifi, waffles for breakfast and a clean and well equipped kitchen. There are several bathrooms on each floor, so there is always a free one available. I... More

I stayed here one night in a dorm, the staff were friendly and helpful. They suggest you to do plenty of thing around the town depending on how much time you have. The place is cosy and comfortable for a night or two, I wouldn't stayed here for longer time. The restrooms are out of the room, only one or... More

Outstanding Hostel, with nice cosy rooms. A friend and me stayed two times in a twin, so I can't say anything about the dorms. The location is more than great, next to the center of Hollywood Boulevard but in a really calm street. The house is a nice older charming building. Liked the bathrooms and kitchen as well. Free unlimited... More

This was the first stop of our six-week trip and we were really happy to have chosen Orange Drive - the staff were very friendly to us and the house was beautiful. The hostel is also in an unbeatable location - close to the hollywood hills and all the tourist attractions, as well as the train. It was a short... More

Hello, We appreciate your review of our hostel. We are making changes with the curtains so the sunlight won't wake our guests up too early in the morning. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again. Kind Regards, Orange Drive Hostel. More

The room we were in was the noisiest room I have ever stayed in! It was also small and stuffy and the curtains were thin, blocking no sunlight so we were up at the crack of dawn each morning. The staff are nice and the kitchen is handy. The bathrooms are shared and there aren't many at all so not... More

I was rather pleasantly surprised by this hostel considering I always book into hotels. However this hostel was very clean, spacious and I was upgraded to a larger room to share with my best friend. It is not a loud or party hostel as per their promise on their website which was great. The front of house staff were friendly... More

This place is in a sweet spot just off hollywood blvd. The house has great character and was very comfortable and quiet at night, even managed to get all my holiday washing done free of charge! Close to bus links, metro links etc. Very friendly staff!

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.
