The whole place has an awful musty smell which was incredibly unpleasant. The minute I arrived I was dreading sleeping here. That said it has a great location with the sights of Hollywood on your doorstep. Could do with much improvement, I wouldn't return here.

The location is perfect, close to Hollywood blvd, and the subway. You can use the flyway to get from the airport to the hotel. The flyaway leaves you in a metro station. The rooms are quite noisy. If you're a light sleeper take a pluge ear. Cleaning is another positive point. If you pay cash, they give you a discount....

When looking for a place to stay in my native Los Angeles, I was on a strict budget. The Orange Drive Hostel met my needs in all respects--it was cozy and the accommodations were acceptable--face facts, when you stay at a hostel you have to know what you are getting into. Booking was a little cumbersome, but any questions I...

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.
