  • Elvina was a really nice host. Had a great time at her place and met a lot of interesting people at PODSHARE. I can definately recommend this place to stay, especially when you travel by yourself.

  • Podshare is by far one of the best short-term stay experiences you can sign up for in Hollywood. Not a real hostel not yet the typical guest room on airbnb. Podshare combines the best of both worlds without necessarily any negative aspects to it. Still affordable, opportunity to meet other people (duh), comfortable (top bunk = history), own space type of feeling within the pod, netflix setup/bed, free wifi, community food, taco Tuesday, epicenter of Hollywood, rad industrial feeling. At bigger venues (no disrespect) you've become a number at podshare you still get the personal approach, which conveniently brings me to the most important aspect of podshare: the absolutely brilliant team Alvina surrounds herself with at pod share. Couldn't describe it any differently as the team literally makes you feel at home and part of the local community. Kudos keep up the good work you guys !

  • stayed at pod share for 2 nights and staff were very friendly and helpful despite the 1st night having tv loud till late. would definitely recommend this place for a central location and getting most places around Hollywood and that part of LA. easy to find and very central to some great bars and eateries. Each pod is well equipped and when things didn't work it was seen to right away i commend you on this little goldmine

  • Since I arrived early that morning at 7am, and didnt aware the check in time is after 9:30am, was waiting for a very long time until 12:45 pm when the pod is ready for me. Was extremely tired but the sleep was bad since its an open space, you can hear most of the noises if you need rest. The pod share is great for those who wants to meet new, interesting people when travel; and its clean with everything you will need when you are on the road. I did enjoy my stay, but would love a bit more privacy.

  • If you're looking for the hostel experience, this place is great. Elvina is a wonderful host, and the other guests were friendly as well.

  • Elvina was an amazing host that went out of her way to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Podshare was cheap, clean and located central to everything. I'll definitely be staying here again next time I'm in LA!

  • Had a great stay. Pod had a laid back atmosphere in a centralised location. Easy access to public transport, helpful staff and clean premises. Only downside was having a bit of a wait for the bathroom in the mornings. Would definitely recommend staying here if travelling to LA!

  • Podshare was the perfect place for me to stay during my visit to LA.
    The staff was super friendly and helpful + I made some amazing new friends there! The Pods are very clean and you can even get your laundry done for 5$. The location of the Pod is also great, nearby is everything you need and I always felt safe. If it's your first time to LA I recommend using their airport shuttle service to the Pod. The Driver was a cool guy and and compared to Cab prices (around 85$) or taking the metro which can take up to 2 hours (about 10$ per person) it's the easiest way to get there. Thanks again to the whole team, I hope to be back there in the near future... :)

  • I came to Podshare the night before my 5K run in Hollywood and I am so glad I found it. Its only 5-10 mins to the Start Line and I had everything I need as if I would stay in another hotel.
    I shared a bed with a girlfriend on a Queen Bed and it was very comfortable. Mikee was friendly and attentive. Elvina was away but she was talking to us by email the whole time. I would give this place 6 stars if I could.
