Stayed 4 nights at Walk of Fame hostel. I didn't really like the area, but it's a matter of taste. And yet, I decided to stay almost my whole trip in L.A.there, because it's the best you can find for such good price. Chose a 4 female dorm. Other hostels generally have more beds per room, fewer is better! People...

A metro station is just across the street, so it´s easy to get to other places too. The room was simple...

I had a great time staying at this hostel with my partner. The staff were friendly and helpful, and assisted in every way possible. The location of the hostel was also pretty good, right on Hollywood Blvd.

I stayed here between 2nd and 9th December, I honestly can't fault it one bit. The location is spot on right outside opposite the walk of fame (hence the hostel name), also right opposite a metro station where tickets start off at $1.75 and only a 15 minute ride to downtown LA. I also made some friends there, where we...

It was a good hostel. The location was ok but so noisy. The bathrooms and laundry was great. The wifi only worked occasionally. The staff were ok. The major problem was no elevator so had to carry 3 large bags up 3 flights of stairs while the staff just watched

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.
