In the heart of Hollywood”
USA Hostels Hollywood was possibly the cleanest hostel I've stayed in USA. Location was right smack in the middle of Hollywood Highland & Hollywood Vine St RED line metro station which means it was proximate to the super touristy Hollywood Walk of Fame / Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard. Rooms were pretty clean and comfy, free bf every morning (needs more than pancakes and bread tho), free wifi and lotsa activities lined up every other day for those without a plan!
My Stay at USA Hostels Hollywood”
We stayed at USA Hostels Hollywood only for a nite as a layover and proceed to our next destination the next day. The hostels' location is ok - <15mins walk to Dolby Theater and Metro station. I believe there is Traders Joe closeby but I didn't go. We stayed in a private room with private bath. the room was closed to the main door to the rooms and stair case, and we couldn't sleep well cuz of the loud noise of the door being shut and people traffic at the stair. You probably wont have these issues if your room is away from the entrance door and stair - so request if they have one. Other than that, I'm ok to USA Hostels.
Great hostel (excluding staff)”
The hostel itself is great!! I loved the sitting area/lounge outside. It was great to sit there for breakfast or chill there in the evenings. Breakfast was great (make as much pancakes as you can)! They offered fruit, toast, porridge and good juice, tea, coffee. Rooms are spacious, clean and all have lockers with power outlets. There is also one at each bed. Bathroom was clean as well and had a good shower. Laundry facilities are good. The only thing I wasn't happy with was the staff. It took them an hour to check me in as they didn't know how to use a new system they were working with. The breakfast staff (two girls) seemed not to enjoy there job at all. They were in a "I hate doing this" mood so that one tried to avoid them (which meant not to ask for a refill of fruit :(). Overall, it just affected the atmosphere and gave me an unpleasant start into the day. I don't know what was wrong with the staff there as the other USA hostels I stayed in had awesome staff!!!
Pro: The hostel is clean. Tthe breakfast is not bad, it offers toast and drinks, and two fruits: banana and oranges. breakfast begins at 6:30. you have to clean plates and tables after breakfast. It makes you feel at home. It is close to Hollywood Boullevard and the Walk of Fame. Fly away bus terminal is Hollywood. It costs eight US dollars from LAX to Hollywood. checkout time is 11:00am. the staff was kind and helpful. Con: one night cost 311 CNY, a little bit pricey.
Great location with breakfast”
The place is located within Hollywood and only 10 mins walk away from LAX flyaway. The hostel offers basic breakfast n unlimited coffee, tea, hot water and drinking water. It also offers daily trip to santa Monica and Venice Beach for free. Tips will be good for the staff. It has a storage area where you can leave your luggage after checkout till 10pm. It also provides a shower place for final wash before you head to the airport. Overall, it is a very good hostel.
Thank you so much, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay!!!
I only stayed for 2 nights and didn't join any of the group activities but I had a great time. The room and bathroom were clean, staff were nice and despite what the others said about not feeling safe walking around the area at night, I felt safe. I would stay at USA Hostels Hollywood if I ever go back to LA.
This hostel has very nice condition rooms. Room is clean and properly cool. Bed is clean and has a electrical outlet and light each. every morning they serve free breakfast including nice coffee, toast and fruits. staff members are so kind. Also, They have various program(free Beach tour by car, walking tour, night party, etc..) It is near from hollywood main street and metro station. nice location.
I enjoyed my stay here. Value for money is great because you get breakfast as well as the activities you can sign up to. Most are free and you can give tips but they provide a great way to socialise and meet other travellers whilst exploring parts of LA. The location is in between two metro stops and a few blocks from central Hollywood (Chinese Theatre etc). The staff are all very friendly and helpful. I would stay at this hostel again and recommend it to others.
Great place ever”
Hostel is located in perfect place just 5 min to Hollywood Blv. Everything was clean and cosy, whats more stuff was really nice and helpful. If I will go to Hollywood one more time I will choose this place again to stay.
Not the best location in Hollywood”
Although situated just off the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the hostel is not located in the best neighbourhood. Walking home at night, I do feel unsafe sometimes with the homeless people around the vicinity. That being said, the hostel is just walking distance from the Hollywood/Highland subway and the Hollywood touristy area (Dolby Theater, Chinese Theater, Jimmy Kimmel, hop on hop off tour bus, etc). Free breakfast was decent with its selection of bread, banana, juices and coffee. Although, the dining area is pretty small and chances are you won't find a seat if you wake up late. There's also the Hostel Hopper shuttle service which is great if you want to get to Disneyland or the airport. As for other tourist areas (LA is massive), I'd recommend you take the hop on hop off bus at Hollywood (about 10 minutes walk from the hostel). The staff are great, except for one cranky white girl with a nose piercing at the reception. Thumbs up to Melanie though who helped me while I'm there! The WiFi connection is super fast and it's available everywhere in the hostel. Another thing I love was that there are two power points located at the "privacy pod" of the bed, which is great for charging your devices while you're asleep. There's locker provided but I didn't bother with them as they are pretty narrow. USA Hostels Hollywood is a great place overall. I only wished it's at a better neighbourhood.
Staff are friendly . Breakfast is a bonus . Your provided with linen ,towels and a locker . Good communal space for all social activities . Hollywood on your doorstep . Good value for money for the area that your in after all this is LA accomdation prices are usually ridiculous . But generally getting around LA is relatively cheap. Recommend place to stay for budget travellers
Thanks for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed all of our amenities. Safe travels and we hope to see you again in the future!
Great hostel with a good location”
I can really recommend this hostel. It has lots of people from all over the world, easy to meet people and close to many pubs, restaurants and clubs. Just down the alley from Hollywood Blvd. Really great patios where lots of people hung out together.
This is my first experience in hostel”
Hotel do provide some event, bring us to the beach, limousine ride and Hollywood sign depending on the day event. Very proactive staff doing cleaning, Housekeeping. Everyone was nice and welcoming, feel so home. Not that normal hotel experience... stay and go. you will feel like home instead.
great value, great atmosphere !”
The hostel was full of energy at the heart of hollywood. Staffs are friendly and cheerful. Steven's Beverly hills tour was so fun, one of the best memory.
Awesome!!!! We'll pass the shout out along! :)
Great location and value for money”
Pros - location near hollywood walk of fame, activities schedule, common areas, well organized, clean, value for money, ensuite bathroom, good water fountain Cons - area can be slightly noisy but just use the earplugs that they prepare, no milk during breakfast, coffee machine not working but these are minor things.
Stay was pleasant ”
Good location, stay was pleasant, staffs were helpful. breakfast is the same everyday and kitchen is too small to accommodate everybody. honestly, i felt the hostel is overpriced, but then again seems like USA hostels are around this price range.
Location is very close to the fly away shuttle bus to the airport. Next to Hollywood. Hostel is clean, the vibe is nice
Thanks for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Safe travels and we hope to see you again in the future!
Great place in Hollywood”
The hostel's location is great and the staff are both friendly and helpful. They organize tours and walks to the Hollywood sign, DTLA, and the beach, etc. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms look very modern and new. They even have a shower upstairs that you can use after you check out!
Great Location and Value for Money”
Clean and nice rooms. Friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Great location, very near to Hollywood Blvd and walking distance to the bus and metro stops. There are free tours / shuttles/ activities planned each day.
Thank you so much! Come back soon!
The perfect hostel for a backpacker”
Man, I had problems in my trip, but the hostel really tried to help me!! They are awesome! I’m very grateful for the help they gave me. The hostel is very close to the Oscar theater and the a lot of facilities are close to it, like 7-11. The bed is very confortable, bathrooms are big and clean, nice shower and a wonderful living room. Great hostel!
