 The Orange Drive Difference


Setting us apart from other LA Hostels is our relaxed atmosphere.  We are not a “party” hostel, but we are just steps away from all of the action Hollywood has to offer. So, go out and enjoy all your Hollywood adventures and come home to Orange Drive Hostel for a restful nights sleep.

A Piece of Hollywood History

Our hostel is known for its old Hollywood glamour, originally a manor home built in 1910.  It later became a boarding house for some of Hollywood’s biggest stars including Marilyn Monroe, Gary Cooper, Rita Hayworth, Kim Novak, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Johnny Weissmuller “Tarzan” and many more. It also played host to many of their friends such as Clark Gable who lived down the street. Our guests stay in a historic, comfortable,  home filled with Hollywood History. Take a step back in time and experience old Hollywood glamour.
