Really friendly staff, great atmosphere and great location. I'll be coming back.
I have stayed in many hostels throughout Europe and North America. In a typical hostel, you have rooms for people to sleep in and a separate common area. That's not the case at the PodShare as it is open concept. Last night, they had karaoke so I had to deal with extremely loud music and drunk people badly singing until well after midnight. Again, you can hear EVERYTHING from the common area from your bunk as it is open concept. I was booked in for three nights but left after the first night. The other
Perfect for a peaceful stay. No need for any other words.
Not enough bathroom facilities. Security a bit suspect. Location right by walk of fame and metro line. Private pods with tv services included.
A very fun and interesting place to stay! A bit more attention needs to be paid to cleaning the pods between occupants--spray & wipe walls, railings and shelves, and vacuum around the mattresses. The sheets, blankets and towels were fresh & clean, as is the rest of the place. It can get a bit noisy some nights, but they supply earplugs which takes care of that issue for those people who need to get up early. Friendly & helpful staff makes PodShare a great place to stay, and I miss being there!

Great place to wind down at, has all the amenities for techies, and I loved it! Only issue for me was the door being open a lot and the staff at the door would step away from time to time leaving it unguarded. It wouldn't bother me normally, but the area was downtown Hollywood and not on a great looking street. If youre looking for a great place with all the amenities you would get at a nice hotel then definitely stay here. Fun vibe, great friendly staff, and right in thick of Hollywood!
Great place to stay in central Hollywood, not far from Capitol Records Tower. Unique vibe with individual pods rather than bunks. Larger / more luxurious than standard bunks, with added extras like personal TVs, power, etc. All 10 pods are in one large area, although everyone seems to keep quiet at night so it's actually chilled and peaceful most of the time. Could do with more bathrooms as there is only one on the ground floor and one on another floor. Clean and staff were great! Recommended!
Great stay with Great people! PodShare really go out of their way to make you feel welcome! I thoroughly recommend staying here for the staff & the type of accommodation it's the best there is.... bar none! 5 STARS
