My wife and I both in our early 50's stayed in a room with private ensuite and tv. Reasonable quality room with free muffins, juice, tea or coffee for breakfast. Rooms can be noisy until midnight or 1am on Saturday when guests are told to go to their rooms due to noise imposed curfew. No lifts and steep steps at... More

We stayed in this hostel for a night during our LA trip, and the location was fantastic to be able to do all of the basic Walk of Fame sightseeing. The staff were friendly, the breakfast good (though no GF options at all if you are gluten intolerant, which I am, so plan accordingly), the rooms comfortable considering this is... More

As everyone says the location is pretty great for exploring the city. Right across the street to the metro trains that take you everywhere (unlimited day passes only $7 for bus and trains). Also opposite the Dolby theatre. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. It was spacious and lucky enough to be off the noisy main boulevard.... More

I stayed in this hostel with my partner this month and it was great. It is right on Hollywood Boulevard, opposite the Dolby Theatre so it couldn't be more central! This obviously makes it slightly noisy at times but it didn't affect our sleep at all. We had a private room with its own shower, toilet and a TV. The... More

The location is really the best thing about this hostel - directly on the Walk of Fame, and only across the street from the Metro (easy access to Downtown and Universal). I stayed in a private room (with shared bathroom) as I was travelling solo. The room was spacious and comfy, plus the TV had a great range of channels.... More

As the name suggests, this hostel is literally on the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard, and is easy to get to from LAX via Uber (roughly $15-20) or metro. It then acts a great hub for exploring the rest of the city. Despite all the noise going on outside, the rooms are quiet, clean and feel safe. The staff... More

First things first-- as everyone else has pointed out: the location is superb. Being right on Hollywood Walk of Fame makes a lot of the attractions right on your front door. And there are frequent buses and a Metro station right outside which meant getting anywhere was very easy. Dorms: I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm, it was... More

I stayed in this hostel for a weekend with 3 of my girlfriends. We all had the best weekend here! The location is unbeatable and we enjoyed shopping along Hollywood Blvd. The staff was super friendly and helpful (I called about 5 times before our arrival with questions). We did the club crawl on Friday night, and that was great!... More

The location of the hostel is amazing right in the middle of Hollywood blvd and facing the metro station and bus stops. The staff were very friendly and helpful, incredibly so. The Hostel was also clean and well organized. The beds were comfortable and the toilets were clean. Only one issue is the water temperature, it keeps changing from hot... 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.
