    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.

    I stayed at Orange Drive Hostel for two nights in October while on my way to visit my grandparents. I would love to spend more time there. The hostel is very easy to find and within walking distance of many big attractions (Runyon Canyon, Walk of Fame, theaters). My room was comfortable, quiet and easy to find within the hostel. The woman at the front desk (I'm sorry; I didn't get her name) was flexible with my check in and very helpful when it came time to actually check in. Highly recommended!

    Enjoyed my stay at the Orange Drive Hostel. Had a private room because of my concerns regarding Covid-19. The location is really great. I spent a lot of time walking to places....meals, trails at Runon Canyon, and just walks through neighborhoods. There was parking available, so I used my rental car to get to the beaches and for longer outings. The hostel is on a quiet street. Room was quiet at night/early mornings. Bed & pillows were a bit hard, but the only issue. Friendly too!

    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.
