This place is the best! I stayed at the Hollywood location because of convenience (easy 2 min walk from metro) and I'm so so glad I did. There were only 3 of us there at any point, but as soon as I walked in the door it felt like home. The space is so open and inviting and probably the...

To whoever looking for a location to stay with restaurants/fast-food/clubs and bars/stores around, PodShare Hollywood will perfectly match your expectations. The metro stop "Hollywood/Vine" is 2 blocks away, less than 10 min walk. The place is also located between some of the main and busy streets of Hollywood walking distance to the Walk of Fame, Trader Joe's (organic grocery store...

I had such a great experience staying at PodShare! I've been travelling around the US for 2 months and this is by far the best accomodation I've stayed in. It's comfotable, it's in a great location, you can do work, relax, they even provide toiletries and food which is such a nice touch. I booked into their Downtown location which...

Warm & friendly, I had a fantastic stay in the downtown Podshare. Very cool design, a warm greeting, friendly orientation to the space, and lovely people to chat with. They hosted an Airbnb gathering during the Open conference and were very generous with food. Highly recommended.

I'm writing on account of me and my friend who booked this hostel 2 months in advance in excitement for our trip down the West Coast. In a quick summary, even our Lyft driver literally had more hospitality than the hostel provided. WHO IS WRITING THIS REVIEW, so you can make fair judgement: I am a person who has NEVER...

We stayed as a couple at podshare downtown for two nights and had a really positive experience. Audrey was super welcoming and helpful. It is a very intimate environment but if your cool with that the facilities are more than adequate. Location is awesome if your looking to explore all the cool hidden gems in DTLA.

Stayed in a pod at Hollywood. Remember not to mix it up. The place with the dorm's are in Downtown. They have 2 properties but 1 TripAdvisor/Facebook for both. The one in Hollywood is a workspace and has only 2 pod's. The workspace has computers and a recording studio, which is rented by the hour/day to outsiders as well. If...

This really is a must for anyone travelling to LA. The location is perfect, close to metro and the best vegan & gluten free friendly cafe and supermarket GROW. Podshare is not just a hostel but a community of like minded travellers, workers. The 'space' is shared - kitchen and communal food like cereals, pasta, bread, coffee etc, bathrooms are...

I stayed at the facility downtown. It was comfortable, fun, and friendly. Really nice welcoming people, super comfy beds, and really close to Japantown's arts district and a short, convenient walk from the Gold Line station. I HIGHLY recommend.

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.
