Title says it all! Very central to everything. Very easy to get the metro to universal studios as it is directly across the road. Most attractions are within walking distance and easy enough to get the bus with a Tap card to Santa Monica. Lots of bars and places to eat. On a Sunday nothing really opens till 12 so... More

Best hostel in Hollywood, hands down! Great breakfast and amenities. This spot is literally on the walk of fame, and conveniently located next to the Metro stop that took us all around the city. Awesome atmosphere with really cool people from all over the globe - we met amazing people from China, Sweden, and Australia in our same dormatory! Definitely... More

The location is awesome, exactly in front of the Dolby theater on Hollywood boulevard. The rooms are clean and quiet, also the staff is friendly and healthful. They provide you with quick breakfast and coffee in the morning. Is great value for the money if you want to visit the city for 1-2 days, you are close to everything in... More

I always dreaded the thought of hostels and always said to myself no way, but being on a budget trip around America I had to settle for it.

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.

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

Unfortunately we were in the process of renovating our new front entrance so at the time of your stay you could only use the smaller entrance as we now have 2. Our new entrance is a sight to see with mahogany steps and incredble wood floored air conditioned lobby. We hope that you would give us another chance if ever... 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

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.
