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

It was a good hostel. The location was ok but so noisy. The bathrooms and laundry was great. The wifi only worked occasionally. The staff were ok. The major problem was no elevator so had to carry 3 large bags up 3 flights of stairs while the staff just watched

It is a great hostel to stay, where you can enjoy simple shared bedroom and a huge clean bathroom. You can meet many people from all over the world. Therefore, I enjoyed my stay at Walk of Fame Hostel. Big Thanks to a staff called Caesar, a hardworking, reliable and wonderful person as well.

I have been there per 1 week, the hostel is cleaning and comfortable. It is in the middle walk of fame in Hollywood. Every day there are activities for guests with tourist guide. Excellent to meet new friends.

I stayed in the 8 bed mixed dorm for a few nights as a solo traveler. The location is very good (depending on what you'd like to see). It's literally right on the Walk of Fame, right across from the Dolby Theater. The hostel itself is fine, but it leaves something to be desired. The AC wasn't working when I... More

There's really nothing bad to say about this place! (one minor downfall was the lack of AC in the bedrooms.) The free breakfast was a selection of bagels & muffins with orange juice and round the clock free tea. The facilities including the laundry, pool table, and organised group activities were excellent! The staff were very friendly and there was... More

Let us start with a positive. Location is amazing. On the walk no complaints there. However I am actually a little shocked that this place is rated 4/5 star; at $55 a night I would hardly consider this a cheap hostel. We stayed in 6 bed mix dorm and the room was big but hot and sweaty and smelled like... More

The location is unbeatable. Right at the Walk of Fame and next to the Highland metro station. The staff was friendly and the rooms okay. Unfortunately it stinked pretty bad as sourish in room 1 (8 dorm). The locker only works with think padlocks, mine was too thin and there was no A/C in the room. The breakfast is good... 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.
