Quaint, clean and comfortable. My first hostel experience and a good one. Perfect place to stay for a girls yoga weekend. I really enjoyed my stay. If I ever come down here I would definitely consider staying here again although I am not a fan of Hollywood Blvd. The booking process was easy, the staff was friendly, it's fully equipped...

I truly recommend this hostel, it is really well located, just a few minutes for the walk of fame in hollywood boulevard. It is a quite place and clean. The breakfast is included where you can make your own pancakes. The staff are really helpful and friendly. Bring your own padlock and you can rent for free the lockers.

I stayed for a few nights with a friend in one of their twin rooms. The Hostel is in a great location about 200 meters from the walk of fame. They have free wifi, waffles for breakfast and a clean and well equipped kitchen. There are several bathrooms on each floor, so there is always a free one available. I...

I stayed here one night in a dorm, the staff were friendly and helpful. They suggest you to do plenty of thing around the town depending on how much time you have.

Outstanding Hostel, with nice cosy rooms. A friend and me stayed two times in a twin, so I can't say anything about the dorms. The location is more than great, next to the center of Hollywood Boulevard but in a really calm street. The house is a nice older charming building. Liked the bathrooms and kitchen as well. Free unlimited...

The room we were in was the noisiest room I have ever stayed in! It was also small and stuffy and the curtains were thin, blocking no sunlight so we were up at the crack of dawn each morning.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
