    I had a wonderful stay at this hostel. I had a room by myself and it was spotlessly clean, as was the shared bathroom and shower. My only complaint is that my room was in the basement and I could hear people walking above me even with a noise machine and earplugs. That is not the fault of the hostel though and I would still absolutely stay here again. Thank you!

    Really nice place at a perfect location. We especially enjoyed the possibility to park directly at the property. Can only recommend this place if you want to stay close to the Hollywood attractions

    We have stayed here a few times before and it has been great. Perfect location! This time we had a room in the basement which was not bad. I do wished there were hooks to hang our bath towels. Or even a small shelf in the restroom for toiletries. There was none of that so out towels were hanging on door knobs.

    I stay at Orange Drive every time I'm in Hollywood overnight, which is at least once a year for the past 10 years. Simply put, it is a gem. Superb location, friendly and helpful staff who remember my name from year to year, and an unmatched value for your money. I recently stayed 5 nights, sharing a deluxe room with a friend. My entire 5-night stay cost half of what I would have paid down the street at the Roosevelt for a single night. Don't miss Orange Drive!

    First time staying in a private room at this property and it was great. Clean, quiet, comfortable. Kind staff. Only minor downside was that the private internet was not working the entirety of our 7-night stay. Always enjoy staying at Orange Drive Hostel.

    Perfect location for exploring Hollywood and area. Steps away from Hollywood Blvd, TCL Chinese Theatre and Walk of Fame yet quiet and serene. Staff are friendly and helpful. Common areas are kept very clean. Parking is available and reasonably priced. The only small negative would be limited space in the communal fridges. This is always our first choice for accommodations in Hollywood.

    The hotel was very well located, next to Hollywood boulevard, convenient to explore Los Angeles by public transportation. It has a very nice garden to have breakfast, and the staff was kind and helpful . The room was clean and calm.

    The location was absolutely outstanding (just behind Gruman's Chinese Theatre - the heart of tourist Los Angeles) and yet the road itself was quiet and the hostel was homely. By far the most sociable place I stayed in my time in California (both guests and staff) and with an interesting history too (with Marilyn Monroe a lodger before she was famous). Would definitely stay again if I was returning to LA.

    Loved the interior design of Orange Drive hostel, very rustic! They have a phone booth with old timey equipment which was adorable. Overall the hostel was very beautiful! The close proximity to hollywood walk of fame, universal studios theme park was very convenient for us. The staff were also very helpful and polite, would definitely recommend staying here if you are exploring central/downtown LA.

    Lovely place to stay! The location is extremely close to Hollywood Blvd, and public transport is easily accessible also. Our private room was small but nice and clean. There’s an odd but completely functional configuration of the toilet and shower. There weren’t many young people staying when we were there so it didn’t accomodate that sort of vibe but a nice, private, quiet place to stay. We very much enjoyed our stay here.
