Katie Richards thinks…

"Was like being among family - social enough but not a party house. Super central. I'd stay again for sure. And the calibre of people who were staying there was amazing - big names in the music…"

Liked: The location was fantastic, only a few blocks from the Hollywood/Vine Metro so easy to get to from airport. Nice walk up to the Dolby, Chinese theatre and walk of fame. Clean, and only a few Pods available so it is nice and small, can get to know the other guests.

Disliked: Lisa left no negative feedback.

Liked: Very unique. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Lack of curtains and beds being right beside windows makes for an early morning! And with no doors or barriers separating pods (beds) and communal area can be very noisy making for a late night!!

Liked: Amazing unique hostel in fact one of the best I've ever stayed at. Great location walking distance from lots of attractions and public transport. Staff are the most friendly helpful people and so much fun! Would definitely recommend to everyone and visit again!

Disliked: This is not a dislike personally, but if you have an allergy to dogs be warned as the staff often bring their dog. Best, cutest dog ever though if you love dogs like me

Liked: Good location (if they put up some type of signage on the outside of the hostel, hard time finding it) A step up from the usual backpackers and feel like each pod to be your own. Minutes away from everything on the main strip in hollywood. Definately would stay here again.

Disliked: The main Pod from the reception should be closed off as it gets very noisy with people having a party in the lobby. Also there is no signage on the outside which makes it extremely hard to be found by the Shuttles ( my 3am shuttle cloud not find it and thus never showed up so I ended up spending a lot on a taxi ride to the airport that early n the morning.

Liked: I wanted to wait to write this review until after i had stayed in a few other hostels. A very different Hostel with a very relaxed feel to it. Hollywood is just around the corner and all the staff are very helpful. Would highly reccomend this to anyone that is sick of party hostels where people just go to get drunk. Very quite at night, however also very easy to make friends and go visit a few bars in hollywood.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: PodShare is not like a normal hostel. It's more than that. You've got you're own little pod. For me it was like my own tree house. You've got a tv with Netflix and so many other apps on it. You can put your suitcase in your pod. I had enough power points to charge phone, tablet, camera etc at the same time. Normally I just had one power point in other hostels. The crew is really friendly and helps you always to find the way to the best spots for sightseeing and shopping. You walk not even a minute and you're at the Hollywood boulevard with the walk of fame. A supermarket is 5 minutes away and a yummy frozen yogurt store as well. ;) I really enjoyed my first time in Los Angeles in Podshare and would always go back there.

Disliked: Nothing :)

Business / conference

12 July 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: A great compromise - slightly more expensive than most, but offers a level of privacy - with its big wide comfortable, isolated bunks, that's possibly worth paying for. Definitely a place you can come back to and chill on your bed without feeling awkward or cramped. For the same price, better than many bottom-of-the-ladder hotels. Friendly, very well situated - in the middle of the red line. Though the actual street its on is slightly dodgy, hollywood-seedy.

Disliked: Advertised help-yourself breakfast of cereals isn't much if they don't seem to offer milk with it. Only 1 day in 4 was there any and I'm not sure it belonged to the hostel, actually. Plug for pod tv was a bit broken so the sound didn't come through cleanly unless you cradled it at the right angle. And the Hulu etc kept hanging, so in the end I gave up and used my laptop instead. Can be kinda noisy - there's some sort of similar establishment next door that seemed to be powering music through the walls at certain late night points.

Liked: I liked the concept, very original!! bed very confortable and nice equipped (own TV, fan, small shelf..) big shower with everything you need your own space in a dorm

Disliked: too much light because of the blinds only one shower for 10 (another one in the next building) not enough space to eat just missing a curtain on the pod and would get a real privacy in a dorm

Liked: Great location - near Hollywood/Vine metro You have your own TV! Bed comfy Great bathroom Staff friendly

Disliked: My only niggle was that it only had one bathroom. As nice as it was a separate toilet too would have been great as if you needed a leak and someone was in the shower it could be a while before you got in there!

Liked: I loved how you don't feel like your sharing with lots of people as it's like a family there. Everyone is friendly but you can also have your own alone time in your pod if you want too. It's the best place to stay in hollywood.

Disliked: NOTHING! It has a great atmosphere and the staff are amazing!
