    Orange Drive Hostel is a wonderful find, as a traveler who knows L. A. well & for newcomer tourists. Obviously designed to provide comfort & safety amidst constant activity. The location can’t be beat, accessible to public transport & accommodating private cars. Most importantly, the staff are well trained and very friendly. Can’t think of a question or concern that went unanswered. Rooms, beds & bathrooms are comfy, very clean & upgraded when available. Guests are all ages which works for me!

    The Location of the hostel is perfect just a 2 minutes walk to the Walk of fame and a lot of other attractions. The staff is really nice and helped where they could! Also the breakfast is really good. I didn't meet a lot of people there but that was probably just because I just stayed one night

    It's such a nice place to stay and it's in such a great location. Close enough to all that is going on on Hollywood Blvd but peaceful enough you can relax. Its such a lovely manor house.

    The facilities were really nice and you could tell the staff works hard to keep the place tidy. My only issues were: A) Unlike other hostels I've stayed in, there were no designated "quiet hours" so there were people blasting music until 4am, doors slamming, yelling, lights being turned on, etc. Even with earplugs and a sleep mask this made getting a good sleep difficult. B) Is that the AC stopped running at night. So with 6 people in one room, on a hot LA night, that room turned into a sauna.

    Be careful with what you book. My partner and I hired a double room on the "ground" floor pictured with large windows and plenty of space. What we got was a damp box room on the basement floor with little natural light and barely enough room thanks to the fact that two beds had been squeezed in there. It would seem that in high season, they turn every available room in to a bedroom and charge the same rate for varying calibers of room and all under one image on the site. They eventually moved us

    The best part was the old antique telephones and the old hotel look. There’s only a couple of toilets and one shower per floor. Surprisingly though no line ups. Basement shower has no hooks so you have to use the door knob to hang your towel and clothes. Staff are nice, Alejandro checked me in and he’s super pleasant. Other staff were honest and suggested to use Uber/lyft to the airport rather than other services which can be unreliable. Common area is small. Limited lockers in common area.

    Fun place!! Mostly good, just a few things to consider: 1) VERY close to the Hollywood walk of Fame, and all roads out lead past it, so getting in or out is very difficult. 2) There were a number of troublesome guests while I was there, playing loud music past midnight, turning on lights in the room when they got back, or setting off alarms repeatedly without getting up. Not the hostels fault, but I haven't seen this elsewhere. 3) Beds weren't very comfortable, and no privacy curtains.
