A really cool hostel found in an old house. I understand that the same owners have had it for decades and it shows in how nicely the place is cared for. The kitchen is a little small and the cooking area is pretty title pack when more than one or two people are in there. The one sink makes for... More

This hostel is quaint, it's close to Hollywood Blvd and to the metro/buses (only a few minutes walk). We stayed in a double private with shared bathroom. The pros: the location was great, easy to get to public transport to major attractions. There are plenty of bathrooms, never had to wait to use one. The kitchen is great, has everything... More

We needed a place to stay close to the Pantages Theater and Musso & Franks Restaurant on Hollywood Blvd. We didn't want to spend $400 for an over nite stay 60 miles from home. We found this Hostel on line for a quarter of the price of a hotel and thought, "what is a Hostel?" At the Orange Drive Hostel... More

First of all I would like to make it clear that I am reviewing the en-suite private room of the hostel and hence this review is likely to be of greater use to those who are looking at this place as an alternative to hotels. We wanted a reasonably cheap place to stay in after spending $150-200+ in New York... More

This hostel was fantastic. They really go that extra mile to make guest feel welcomed and enjoy Hollywood. The location is amazing perfect spot to catch tours to Disneyland, universal studios, Warner brothers studios etc they were clean and very safe. They keep the front door locked at all times and have clean bathrooms.

The location is perfect, Hollywood Boulevard is around the corner. Here you can pick up the hopp-on hopp-off bus which I would recommend when you have not much time. The hostel is nice, You can make your own pancakes for breakfast in a bit too tiny kitchen.

Stayed for 2 nights in a female only dorm. The interior of the hostel is really lovely, very pretty and clean. Lots of individual lockable bathrooms with showers available. Staff were friendly and helpful, reception offered useful advice about getting around. The hostel is really close to Universal Studios (1 metro stop) including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter :D

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.
