Staff was very helpful, beds were comfortable, had plenty of room for my items. The location was in downtown where there's a growing night life on the eastside. I found overnight parking in front of Podshare. Spacious sitting area for eating, chilling, and using laptop. Amazing. Cheers.

Small, but clean and well maintained. If you're shopping for this hotel, you're trying to save cash. It works for that just fine. Shared bathrooms can be odd if you've never used one in a hotel - but if you've ever had a roommate, you'll be ok.

Alternative Accommodations – Hostels

 

Best Hostels in Los Angeles

 

Travel is all about experiences, whether you’re trekking across the world or just miles away from home. And while you may think of backpacking students when cheap hostels come to mind, modern-day hostels appeal to a much more diverse group of people. Hostels are traditionally beloved as a great way to meet fellow travelers and as a more affordable option to hotels. They’re the perfect place to rest for the night and then get up and go on your next day of exploring Los Angeles and beyond.

 

What is the difference between a hostel and a hotel?

 

It’s customary for hostels to contain multiple bunk beds in a dorm-style room to be shared with friends (or strangers). So, can couples stay in hostels? The short answer is yes. Some of the best hostels in the world (and maybe even in Los Angeles) are private room hostels that feature larger beds and more privacy. There are even bookable accommodations that offer family hostel rooms that provide even more space. Hostels are more commonly found internationally, but USA hostels are beginning to pop up around the country.

If secluded quarters and quiet accommodations are a priority to you during your travels, there are boutique and luxury hostels that offer upgraded private rooms, elevated décor, and higher end amenities. It’s possible to get the affordability and energy of a hostel with some elements of privacy that you’d usually only find by staying in a hotel.
