It was easy enough to get here from airport took flyaway to union station then the train to the station outside the hostel across the road. Right on the boulevard right amongst everything.

I stayed here a few nights whilst travelling California. I shared a room with 5 other girls and the room was very clean. The location is perfect, right on the doorstep of Hollywood's Walk of Fame and close to the Chinese theatre, Madamme Tussauds, Hard Rock Café and shopping etc. About a 40 minute train ride to Santa Monica Pier...

I stayed in a 4 girl dorm, very clean good size, would be good to have more showers but that was fine. Beds are made everyday, towels are available, breakfast daily. Great location with a locked door downstairs so not just anyone can enter

We had a great stay. All the staff members where super nice and ready to help with whatever we needed. We stayed at a 4 bed room and they were quite big. It didn't have a private bathroom but it was close to the common one, which was always clean. Since the hostel is located on hollywood blvd. it could...

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...

Nice, simple hostel, the staff were very friendly and helpful! Its location is great! You have the Walk of Fame right outside the door, and Hard Rock Cafe, shopping centre, museums, cinemas, and several cool places in close proximity. A metro station is just across the street, so it´s easy to get to other places too. The room was simple...

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.
