3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2016

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

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

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

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

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.
