The best affordable stay in Hollywood!”
As a solo female traveller, it can be difficult to narrow down on a hostel in Hollywood. But this place was the best! It's extremely close to Hollywood Boulevard and TCL Chinese Theatre (a 3-minute walk). The rooms and bathrooms were clean and well-maintained. The staff were friendly, and always ready with some helpful advice. They have a DIY breakfast, but all the printed instructions are pretty clear. The waffles were delicious! Just remember to wash your dishes after you use them. All in all, I'm glad I chose Orange Drive Hostel, and would definitely recommend it!
A Pleasant and Great Surprise”
I was so happy to find myself at the Orange Drive Hostel for a fix of the city after 5 days camping in Joshua Tree. It was comfortable, cozy, and quiet and the hot shower felt great! The staff welcomed me with open arms, and they spent time with me explaining the layout of the city, suggesting places for me to see. The location was perfect, and I loved the "Old Hollywood" vibe that exists throughout the place! Make your own waffles for breakfast...can't beat that. Definitely coming back here next time I'm in LA!
It was really good time in Orange Drive Hostel”
I spent 4 days in this Hostel and i came to the conclusion that Orange Drive Hostel is kind of 'special', the staffs are kind and helpful, the location is in the heart of Hollywood Boulevard and the bedroom is comfort. I met some of good guys during my time there and we're discussed about many things related to traveling topic.
Nice hostel, feels like home”
The hostel is pretty nice, as it feels more like a charming house. There are so many rooms and bathrooms around, it‘s easy to get lost. The beds are super comfy and everything‘s very clean. The staff was super helpful and friendly too. Breakfast is included and actually pretty nice with waffles, cereals and tea & coffee. It‘s super close to Hollywood Blvd., but the street is very quiet. I would stay there again!
Old but okay”
This place was conveniently located by Hollywood Blvd. It was about a 5-10 minute walk from the metro. The hostel is essentially a very large house. The interior was relatively old, the floor boards creaked etc. Breakfast is very limited; just orange juice, milk, coffee, and waffles. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. The AC in our room kept turning off for no reason so we were quite hot but the staffs were nice and helped us turn it on. Overall, everything was good, nothing too extraordinary. Just the facility itself is very old.
Historic hostel in Hollywood”
Must stay historic hostel in Hollywood where most of the legendary stars used to stay in. Staff are helpful and friendly.
Cozy hostel in the middle of Hollywood blvd”
Nice, cozy place close to the Hollywood blvd, Highlight metro station, Red Canyon Park and etc. Simple Breakfast is nice thanks to its delicious waffles dough). I would definitely recommend this place and would love to stay there one more time once in LA.
Loved it; simple, homey, very comfortable; nice desk people, too”
low to the ground, which you'll value in this fairytale up in the air neighborhood. Ironically, I also stayed a couple nights in the big hotel behind it in the picture, and for me personally I liked this hostel much more. One was chilly, but this one was "chill."
Except the moldy smell, this hostel was wonderful, with the convenient location ,nice staff and free breakfast.
Nice little HW gem!!”
This was my first stay and I cannot say enough good things about Fabiola and Pedro- service with a smile and kindness! PROS: Great location, very large, old historic home.Many bathrooms and showers, great AC. Quick check in.Beds slept well, good wifi.Breakfast of self made waffles, OJ , milk and good coffee. CONS:No electrical outlets near the beds. NO paper towels in the kitchen or restrooms. It's NOT sanitary to use hand towels used by so many others before you. YUCK! No chairs with back support or a place condusive to work 8 hrs. I learned the hard way. In summary, it's fine because the value and good outweighs the bad. This is October and I'm booked once a month thru February.
Laura (apologies if I got the name wrong) at reception was exceptional, she helped me book my transportation back to the airport and told me where to go, if really helped alot especially when the transport system isn't the easiest to navigate. I really want to thank her from the bottom of my heart. The hostel itself is good for the money you pay, though the kitchen is small for the amount of people using it, otherwise everything else was really good and it's in very close proximity to the entertainment sector and transportation. Loved America!
The hostel is great”
Staff is nice, location is great, and you can make delicious free breakfast by yourself. Only a few complaints: 1. The bathrooms are a bit too small, and there is not enough place to put shampoos and bathing soap. 2. The water temperature in the bathroom is not stable. It goes too hot and too cold frequently sometimes. 3. The locks are too old and require two hands to open a door. It is difficult when you are holding maybe a cup of tea in your hand.
Fabulous location, shared bathrooms”
2 minutes from the Chinese Theatre. Went to see Jimmy Kimmel Live We were able to leave our bags Breakfast making our own waffles got a bit sticky! Highly recommended for old style accommodation
Generally a pleasant place to stay. Location is convenient. Would be better if the air conditioner can be controlled by the room stayer rather than the staff.
An amazing place to be!”
Wonderful staff in a beautiful hostal and amazing location. Truly enjoyed every day over there with my son. Definitely will go back some day.
Cozy place right in the middle of Hollywood”
Super friendly staff, comfy bed, super cute place. It was really peaceful & clean. Would def come here again! Also great value for money.
Friendly service. Great location. Free breakfast bonus. But the room you get is not the same you see advertised in the pictures. The room pictures are misleading.
Clean and tidy, helpful staff, many many toilet and bathrooms
receptionists are friendly and helpful.don't expect anything for breakfast. super noisy when ppl talked, or walked along the corridor and stairs
If you are looking for a great location, this one is perfect for you. Rooms were quite small but it is not totally a problem. Sharing of bathrooms was quite a bit problem for us but we managed it. We were allowed to cook in the kitchen which we really liked so we can save money. Staffs were okay but not really approachable. It was a good stay.
