This hotel is in the perfect location for enjoying hollywood. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and tidy. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom and had no issues. The price cannot be beat for the location. Highly recommended.

It's the perfect hostel I've ever stayed. I stayed there for 2 weeks in winter. The staff in the hostel is very kind. The place is near Hollywood.

The hostel is quite old, and the bathroom was really small. But, it is a nice place anyway. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is good: build your own waffles and pancakes! It is located a couple blocks from walk of fame, madame tussauds museum, etc...

When looking for a place to stay in my native Los Angeles, I was on a strict budget. The Orange Drive Hostel met my needs in all respects--it was cozy and the accommodations were acceptable--face facts, when you stay at a hostel you have to know what you are getting into. Booking was a little cumbersome, but any questions I... More

Really close to walk of fame and the metro; the room (at least the one that I've stayed) was cosy and had 3 bunks. Good places to dine at the night and the big plus is that they have a good place to park for U$5!!

The hostel had friendly and helpful staff, warm bedrooms, clean facilities and good help yourself breakfast. Great location, right around the corner from Hollywood Boulevard where all the action is. Good price. Can't ask for better stay in Hollywood.

We stayed there for 5 nights and got a private room to ourselves. The staff was helpful, the kitchen was clean and there was free parking. Most importantly, we chose it for its proximity to Hollywood boulevard.

The Orange Drive Hostel is in an excellent location just off Hollywood Boulevard. The private rooms are basic but comfortable and the street is quiet despite the central location. The building is quirky and welcoming, probably as far from a generic chain hotel experience as is possible! Recommended as an inexpensive option in pricey LA.

I will start by saying I really really wished I could give this place a higher rating but unfortunately it just didn't hit the spot. My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of a US tour and booked it mainly for the location. At the time of booking they had no double rooms with private bathrooms... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
