    By far my fave place to stay in the LA area! The staff is always so friendly and helpful, the place is spotless, the yard transports you to a peaceful serenity AND you're just steps away from all of the excitement of Hollywood Blvd!

    Calm and cozy hostel in an incredible location right next to the Walk of Fame and the Metro station. There were a couple small hiccups during our stay. The air conditioning started leaking water and we had a large cockroach in our room during the first night. However, everything was swiftly dealt with and the kindness of the staff more than made up for the minor inconvenience. The hostel feels super welcoming and we would definitely stay again!

    Even though this hostel is very close to Hollywood Blvd, the street it’s on is very quite. The location is an easy walking distance to and from the Walk of Fame. The building itself has shower and toilet rooms which are quite small, wifi is a bit choppy in some parts of the building and doesn’t always connect, other than that, it’s quite a nice older building.

    They've everything and location is very nice. Even you can keep your luggage for free or access locker service for free. You can bring your own lock for locker or purchase from reception at a minimal price.

    Great place to stay as a person traveling alone. Staff was very helpful and kind. A good location in Hollywood— nearby enough to walk to big attractions, bars and restaurants, but still a few blocks off the main path to avoid crowds outside your room. I stayed in a private room which was very secure and even had a small shower and toilet, which was unexpected and welcome.

    Great location and clean despite being old. The vibe is a little off - not really the place to go to be social and meet people. Decent place to stay if you don’t want to spend much time there or meet people.

    Orange drive hostel had a good location in terms of being very accessible to buses and trains etc. however the surroundings were slightly dodgy to be around at night but that is not the hostels fault. The room was very basic and we had paid for a private room. The toilet is literally in the shower which made for little privacy and also soaked the toilet seat. We had a leak in our room through air con which the staff did fix but it was very noisy and not reflective of the price.
