Hostelworld says

USA Hostels Hollywood have been with Hostelworld for over a decade and they're consistently praised for their friendly staff and 'fantastic' location with 'easy access to the metro which can't be beat'. As one of our reviewers said, 'in LA you stay where you wanna go, so Hollywood is a must, and this place has you sorted'; it's located right between Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Strip. We like the privacy panels on their bunk beds, with a shelf, light and outlet at every bunk and massive lockers in each room.

A free breakfast of hot pancakes and coffee starts your day the all-American way.


We're in a central location between Sunset Strip and Hollywood Boulevard so you'll be in the middle of the action here. If you want to get away from it all, we're the only local hostel with a shuttle to Santa Monica and Venice beaches. It heads out three times a week. You can celeb spot and maybe get a couple of selfies on the Walk of Fame and at Mann's Theatre – they're about 10 minutes away on foot. We can book you onto an airport transfer for the 35-minute journey from LAX to our door.

A handy shelf and electric plug outlet give you a place to keep and charge your devices. You'll also have a roomy locker to put your backpack out of the way.

    Probably one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at. Staff were friendly, security was great, and beds were comfy and private. Had my own light, charger and little shelf to place things next to my bed, along with a privacy panel which was perfect. Only con I had is that I did see a roach in the bathroom, which was surprising because the rest of the faculty was very clean and well looked after. Housekeeping came twice a day to clean the bathroom. Could have crawled through the window, who knows.

    Overall nice place. Really like the privacy pod with individual light and plugs for charging phone. The little stand was nice too for someone who wears glasses. I'm always worried about where to put them at most hostels. They have a nice basic breakfast and offer a nice variety of activities in the morning and evening.

    I appreciate the tours that are offered to those at the hostel and they have done well to encourage people to participate. The Hollywood night walk was a great way to see the city, and Steven did a great job.

    Very Good

    08 Feb 2020
    All in all a good hostel in a great location. There were some MINOR things I didn‘t like, some of the staff felt sometimes a little too cool for school, not really caring about the tour or punctuality. Also didn’t like the loud music that went on until 12am. I do need to point out though that there were some really helpful staff members at the front desk. Also, for a hostel the bath rooms and dorms were really clean!

    Pretty standard hostel. Lockers were large enough to fit a large travel pack, though a standard small lock will not lock them and they charge for large padlocks. Good location, being LA you naturally will not be over reliant on public transport so it's a relatively central location, relative to Hollywood Hills and the Hollywood Sign, Downtown LA and the beaches. Everything else was nothing to write home about

USA Hostels Hollywood says

I think what makes us special is that we offer way more than a bed in a central location. Being in the heart of the Hollywood tourist district makes it easy for guests to see all the sights or hop a bus to anywhere in LA. We also offer free beach transportation three times a week along with a variety of discounted tours making our location an easy place to call home while in Los Angeles. When guests are not out and about, they can catch a few rays on our large, private patio, cook up a meal in our fully stocked kitchen or tuck away in their 'privacy pod', an exclusively-designed addition to each bed that features a light, shelf, outlet and screening from other guests.
We're ideal for a wide range of travellers over the age of 21 - those looking for a social, later-night atmosphere, groups up to 25 people, long-haul resting stops, and those looking for a home base for exploring all of LA and southern California. Brigit, COO
