Stayed in a pod at Hollywood. Remember not to mix it up. The place with the dorm's are in Downtown. They have 2 properties but 1 TripAdvisor/Facebook for both. The one in Hollywood is a workspace and has only 2 pod's. The workspace has computers and a recording studio, which is rented by the hour/day to outsiders as well. If...

This really is a must for anyone travelling to LA. The location is perfect, close to metro and the best vegan & gluten free friendly cafe and supermarket GROW. Podshare is not just a hostel but a community of like minded travellers, workers. The 'space' is shared - kitchen and communal food like cereals, pasta, bread, coffee etc, bathrooms are...

I stayed at the facility downtown. It was comfortable, fun, and friendly. Really nice welcoming people, super comfy beds, and really close to Japantown's arts district and a short, convenient walk from the Gold Line station. I HIGHLY recommend.

This place has just the right amount of funk. You can work in peace or take an adventure with fellow travelers. It's close to walk to attractions, night clubs, restaurants, and the grocery store. The hosts are more than willing to share travel tips. You can make new friends, scope out a new job, or just come to use the...

I stayed in the Arts district podshare for about a week before a conference I had to attend in Downtown LA. That was probably one of the best moves I did in my recent trips. People are nice, neighborhood is nice, pods are nice, price is nice - showers are great. It is just very well thought out. Huge detail:...

I stayed in the art district Podshare and I loved the industrial, minimal design of the space. All the shelving, hooks in the bathroom, everything works. The beds were very comfortable. I was there for 2 nights only but felt very welcomed and I would definitely stay there again.

I have never been to California so I decided to try out podshare since I was traveling by myself and that was the best decision ever! The beds were accommodating with their own TV including Netflix 😁 even though I brought my own showering kit it was nice to know that Podshare provides you with shampoo, conditioner, face wash, towels,...

When we attended the Anime Expo® con, we stayed at this awesome place near Little Tokyo called PodShare. It was a great place to make friends with people all around the world and socialize. The place also provided for an excellent atmosphere to concentrate on my drawings I was completing for the convention as an artist alley table seller. I...

Although I was at the PodShare for only a few hours, I could tell immediately, walking in, why PodShare has been applauded thus far and hopefully, why they will continue to be. I really appreciated and love the modern style of the room, and my pod area came well equipped with all the important necessities. Combine that with meeting some...

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.
