Top tips for finding Los Angeles hostel deals

  • Los Angeles is typically an expensive city to stay in, so travelers on a budget might wish to save some money by staying in a hostel in Los Angeles. Many hostels offer facilities such as communal kitchens or inexpensive bars, which can help save money in ways beyond simply the sleeping accommodations. Another advantage of picking a hostel in Los Angeles is that many hostels are located in cool neighborhoods that have a distinctive local vibe—for example, Echo Park or Venice Beach.
  • Most of the hostels in Los Angeles are to be found in popular areas such as Hollywood and Santa Monica. While these areas are not necessarily the cheapest, the accommodations here are perfectly located for travelers wishing to visit local points of interest like the Hollywood Walk of Fame or the iconic Santa Monica Pier. Both areas are also ideally located for travelers wanting to go Downtown, the car ride taking around 20 min.
  • Couples booking a room in a Los Angeles hostel might wish to opt for a property such as Time Zone Hostel Hollywood or Orange Drive Hostel. Both hostels offer double or twin rooms with private bathrooms, and the latter has a particularly romantic touch, thanks to its setting in a retro-chic mansion.

Some of the most popular options for solo travelers include Banana Bungalow Hollywood, which has a large communal kitchen, a terrace, bar, and regular events such as BBQs and movie nights; and USA Hostels Hollywood, which is popular for its TV lounge, its game room, walking tours, and musical instruments (e.g., guitars) that guests are free to use. PodShare Venice is also a good choice, especially for solo travelers who need to use computers or Wi-Fi to work during their stay.
