Great location with parking.

This hostel is in an excellent location in Hollywood. But there is something that really needs to get better: the kitchen. The hostel says they offer breakfast, but besides not having nobody at least to organize the things for the customers, the kitchen is horribly tiny. So if four people are already sit having breakfast, no space is available anymore. I believe they should organize that or not to say they offer breakfast. The atmosphere of the hostel is more like a hotel, no partying at all.

Owner Comment (Hide)
The breakfast is free and includes waffles and oatmeal. All items are self serve and the supplies are set up in the kitchen each morning for guests. The kitchen is small, but we have additional seating at the counters outside the kitchen area and the outside patio. We are not a "Party" hostel, but a friendly, clean, and comfortable place to stay and get a good night's rest. We are just a two minute walk from everything Hollywood has to offer. Thank you for your review. Kind Regards

I stayed for 4 days at this hostel and it was a wonderful experience. The location is perfect. Very easy to get around. The staff was very friendly and has all the information you need to go around the city. The kitchen was a bit small with small seating area but it wasn't a big deal. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay!

This hostel was one of the best I have stayed at. Everything was clean, the front desk receptionist was very nice, the breakfast is good. The twin room was perfect! Wifi was excellent although phone sometimes turned into roaming because the room was on the lower floor.

I dont know why it is rated so lowly, it is a GREAT hostel, the rooms are comfy and location is EVERYTHING, right around the corner from Hollywood walk of fame, walk distance from public transportation and the breakfast is not much but it's enough, loved the waffles!

We had a fantastic experience at Orange Drive. Great location near public transport so it's easy to get to other places like Santa Monica and West Hollywood. The rooms were really clean. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is more of a hotel/motel vibe here which as a couple we were fine with but if you're traveling solo, it's not really a party hostel. The front desk staff were incredibly helpful and made the experience even better.

We treated ourselves to a private room here when we got off the planeand the end of our trip - both times we were super tired and it was lovely to arrive here. It is a little more expensive than a regular hostel but very nice and I felt, worth it. Keep in mind - this is not a party hostel! But the location is awesome.

The location of the hostel was excellent just a few steps and you are on Hollywood boulevard. There is a supermarket and a chemist close by too. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The shared bathroom was cleaned regularly and thoroughly. The price was good for the location and the city. The building was big and accommodated lots of people. Only thing we didn't like it smelt a bit funny but we got used to it. Good facilities, free tea and coffee and breakfast. Wifi good not great.
