This was my first hostel stay. We stayed in a private room with ensuite for 2 nights. The room was clean, the bed comfy and the shower was good. The cleaners at the hostel where always in the halls cleaning, even scrubbing the skirting and walls. Our room was a little musky but other then that it was a good...

Terrible accommodations for a hostel. Poor ventilation, but right across the street from TLC Theater. I do not recommend staying at this location even if traveling alone. I do not recommend this place if you are a female traveling alone.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback. I think there might be a confusion of hostels, as we are located across from the mall, Gap store, and forever 21. There is another hostel located just up the street, in which is across from the TLC theater. Please look out for an email from one of our representatives. Sincerely, Tahj General Manager

City break in LA for 6 days. Walk of fame hostel is a great location with the metro right opposite so makes for easy commuting to city sites. Our private room had shared communal bathroom which was on the second floor, so was a bit annoying in the middle of the night but not really a pain. Thanks

There is no elevator so have to lug luggage upstairs. Also the luggage storage room has no key or anyone looking at it so anyone could take the stuff in the room. The room was good but walls are thin so can hear noises outside. Also the bunk beds are squeaky. Breakfast was very basic. There are smells to the...

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.
