Staying in 8-bed mix dorm for 4 nights. We were staying at the row right above the breakfast place. It's a little far from the office and I think that's the reason we can't connect to WiFi when we are in the room. A simple free breakfast every morning and it's good enough for us. But when we want to...

The office staff were always incredibly helpful. I stayed in a private room that had everything I needed - a tv, a mini fridge, a microwave, free wifi and an ensuite bathroom. The rooms were very clean, the facilities were good and the hostel itself is only a 10 minute walk to the main par of Hollywood Boulevard. I was...

This is very cheap and reasonable for the traveller needing the less expensive option. But, I am sorry to say. We arrived there after a full day walking the streets of LA, santa Monica and Hollywood, which came after having done the long flight from Melbourne to LA. We were really happy, but very hot, tired and in need of...

I picked this hostel because of it's location and it didn't disappoint, it's right at the end of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's a pretty cool spot with nice communal areas, a table tennis table, computers and free wifi. I also enjoyed the simple but nice included breakfast and a $5 dinner while I was there which was great!...

Loved this place!:) Very clean, friendly and helpful staff, free breakfast everyday, free/cheap dinners 5 nights a week, cheap/discounted tours both day and night all for $28 bucks a night in an 8 room dorm! Our dorm had its own fridge, kitchen and bathroom/toilet. We upgraded to a private room for our last few nights and it was better than...

I just recently stayed here, after it being recommended to me for a few times. It's the end of my time in America and I wanted to do the touristy Hollywood tours, so stayed in Hollywood so I wouldn't have to walk far. This is a hostel unlike no other, there are kitchens in the dorms, and the bunks are...

We stayed here for 2 weeks which is a long time to stay in Hollywood, but this hostel was just so nice.

Stayed here for a few nights during our trip around the States - cheap and cheerful, we were upgraded to a private room on arrival which we were chuffed about!

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.
