1) USA Hostels Hollywood

USA Hostels Hollywood have been with Hostelworld for over a decade and they’re consistently praised for their friendly staff and ‘fantastic’ location with ‘easy access to the metro which can’t be beat’. As one of our reviewers said, ‘in LA you stay where you wanna go, so Hollywood is a must, and this place has you sorted’; it’s located right between Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Strip. We like the privacy panels on their bunk beds, with a shelf, light and outlet at every bunk and massive lockers in each room.”

Many people say, this hostel is the heart of Hollywood and the reason I love this place the most is that it is only half a block away from Walk of Fame and very near to Egyptian and Chinese theaters. If that doesn’t make you happy, then there are a lot more reasons you will select this hostel. It provides a delicious free breakfast of pancakes, fruit juice, baked goods, coffee, and much more. It is a great place to hang out after an amazing day of touring.
