I was rather pleasantly surprised by this hostel considering I always book into hotels. However this hostel was very clean, spacious and I was upgraded to a larger room to share with my best friend. It is not a loud or party hostel as per their promise on their website which was great. The front of house staff were friendly...

If the term "hostel" brings to mind the "crash pads" of the 60s (showing my age) - you could not be more wrong when it comes to this location. I discussed this at length with the management before booking the room as my age would make me a little out of place in that setting. The house is a typical...

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.
