    We had a great stay here. Our room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the nice covered area they have in the front yard, too. It’s a very charming place and the staff people were kind and friendly. I’ll definitely come back again.

    I recommend this hostel. Great location! Due to the pandemic, many hostels have long term residents but this hostel by far had the most 'normal' crowd. I made good friends there. The staff was helpful friendly & accommodating when I was not sure whether I'm extending until the last minute. I also had an incident where my luggage was (accidentally) taken and the staff was swift to get the cameras and check, so we were able to figure out what happened and call the people and get our things back.

    The best part of the Orange Drive Hostel is the incredible location-right behind the Dolby Theater. The staff was very friendly and gave me great suggestions for places to eat and things to do. The room itself was outdated but clean. Unfortunately, my private room was right next to the hallway and courtyard so it was pretty loud as the walls are thin. The shared bathroom was not very clean. There was hair in the sink and someone vomited on the toilet. Overall, would recommend for the price.

    Utilitarian lodging in the middle of the Hollywood action. Great value if you don’t need hotel amenities.

    The community kitchen was never cleaned and basic common kitchenware was non-existent. Lacking furniture in the tiny rooms. Creaky floors and banging doors. Both beds are uncomfortable. Our door was a pain to open (requires two hands). Bathrooms are tiny and hard to use the sinks without getting water everywhere. Showers are crammed. The managers were at least nice and allowed a late checkout. A lot of loitering strangers and homeless in the area. A strange talkative guy lives in back lot shed.
