Great location. Comfortable stay. Free waffles for breakfast and tea/coffee all day! Right in the centre of Hollywood! Walking distance to the Hollywood and highland mall, Madam Tussaud's, Ripley's believe it or not, CVS and many more. It's also right next to the Magic Castle. Ideal for a Universal studios visit.

I stayed here for a night in August 2016 in a private room with shared bathroom.

We, two couples, stayed for two nights at the Orange Drive Hostel while touring California.

Great location? Parking available at a charge. This hostel was perfect for a short stay to L.A. My only complaint is there's no A/C and it was so stuffy in the evening. The rooms were very clean and ideal for a short stay.

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.
