    This place was clean and friendly. They let me exercise on the beautiful front lawn without disturbance. One of my roommates did have an attitude problem, which encouraged me to check out before I wanted to. We did talk about it though and it was understanding that he had some life issues going on. Great place to stay if wanting to tour the Hollywood Blvd.

    Not only is the hostel located in the heart of the neighborhood but the staff and residents also reflect the diverse, authentic, and hospitality spirit of the local community. I highly recommend Orange Drive Hostel if you are looking for a safe, clean, and centrally located place - attractions, grocery markets, Metro station, etc - while visiting Hollywood, CA.

    Very Good

    We paid for the double suite to have a little space to ourselves because I had been working all week. We still wanted the community vibes of being in a hostel and sharing with others. Unfortunately the suite was above the kitchen, so it was very noisy, and the hot water in the shower almost burned me when it turned from warm to scalding without warning. Not really worth the $$ The hostel is in a great area, parking was easy (don’t park on the street) and staff was friendly.
