I’ve stayed in 5* star hotels and shared dorms – I love to travel! As I couldn’t find a hotel at a reasonable price on the night I needed near Hollywood I booked a single room at Orange Drive. The good stuff first.... the location cannot be beat & it is a quiet hostel if you're not a party animal....

We booked this place due to good review, so we have high but reasonable hope with this place. The location is superb. Close to everything in Hollywood. Nice, beautiful, clean and quiet place. Room shower/bathroom is equally clean. Free wifi - although the connection is not that great in our room. This is an old house with lots of character,...

This hostel is located really close to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The hostel is a big house decorated with old style. I traveled with a friend this time so we booked a twin private room. The room was quite comfortable, with two beds, a dressing table, a chair and a place to hang your clothes. The windows were big...

This place could be out of a movie. It'd a pretty little house a stones throw from the main Hollywood Blvd. You wouldn't know it's there, no sign just a number on the door... Inside the hostel smells and looks like an old peoples home. It's a sort of tardis as it looks small from outside but it huge inside....

I stay at hostels for one of two reasons. Either to meet and party with other people if I'm in a foreign location or for cheap, good accommodations. This trip was representative of the latter reason. This hostel is in a great location right off the hustle and bustle of Hollywood Blvd. but is in a safe and very quiet...

This was a good place to stay for one night, although I will say to remember to BYO milk, etc for breakfast as it isn't supplied. Also, if you are wanting a hostel where you can easily meet people, the common areas are not necessarily conducive to this. The staff however were really helpful and the rooms were clean.

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.
