    Overall had a great experience. Checkin was easy and the room was available earlier than check-in time which was amazing when we had gone to just drop off our luggage. The man checking us in gave us a tour and showed us everything. We weren’t expecting towels to be provided but we were pleasantly surprised. Everything very clean, kitchen breakfast was good, only thing is that the doors and locks are very loud when open or closing because they’re quite old. Will definitely return when in LA again

    This is my second time staying at the Orange Drive Hostel and I will never stay anywhere else in LA ever again! I even have friends who would totally let me stay at them for free but I love the Orange Drive so much. The people who stay there are polite and quiet, the furniture is beautiful and antique, the history of the building is fascinating, there are WAFFLES AND COFFEE in the mornings! It is located right on Hollywood BLVD where the celebrity starts are.. Its amazing. I love this place.

    Everything was good and nice, I stayed in a 6 bed room but it wasn’t full. The room was big and comfortable, the staff helpful and nice. Lots of informations and helping stuff, brochures. The breakfast is made pancake batter that you need to make into waffles or pancakes, and muesli, coffee tea hot chocolate and vending machines. I would recommend and stay again in the hostel, really calm and quiet in the middle of Hollywood.

    Comfy beds in very quiet & clean hostel. It is just around the corner from the Chinese Theatre. It’s a good spot if you want to explore Hollywood. Not much of a vibe happening. Free cereal for breakfast.
