  • Podshare is super cool and convenient. It's a great place to crash. Certainly will return!

  • Had wonderful stay at podshare! Everything was good and clean, and met some cool people there. Elvina was really nice, too. Definitely recommended to someone staying in Hollywood.

  • This was the first time I've ever stayed in a community type of setting. I stayed in this 'upscale hostel' for 7 nights. I really enjoyed my stay there overall. It was incredibly and consistently clean. Lots of opportunity to be social with people yet also have your privacy if you wanted. I was surprised how quiet it was there inside the podshare at night. It wasn't a big party place, but a place to have some good clean fun. I appreciated that. It was a great place to chill out after my intensive and long days of training.
    Elvina and her staff were exceptionally accommodating. One night there was an unexpected maintenance that needed to happen. She said it was the first time in two years that happened. Elvina set me up in a hotel for the night and covered all my costs for that night. She was very sincere at making my stay as comfortable as possible.
    Only downfall was each night the noise outside was disturbing due to parties, etc. It's very close to Hollywood Blvd. I would absolutely recommend podshare if you are traveling for fun, but maybe not so much if you are in Hollywood for an important work trip and need to get up early in the morning. They did shut off the lights every evening around 10:30pm which was nice.

    For some reason most of the guests were Australian. All very nice people!

  • I booked a queenpod for my world-travelling daughter and her friend and they were just amazed about the hospitality and the cool location.
    They were there for the easter-weekend and were surprised with easter-eggs and other goodies :-)
    Best stay ever! Thanks Elvina, also for the easy communication!

  • Only bad part about my stay here was that I couldn't stay forever. Incredible place in a great location. I met so many people in only a week. I will be back here as soon as possible!

  • Conveniently located if one wants to visit Hollywood Boulevard - within walking distance

    Friendly hosts in a hostel-like environment.

    The PODs are like glamorized bunk beds. Overall, good place with a cool, hip vibe.

  • Great place to stay! Super-friendly staff and guests, great vibe. Location in Hollywood is awesome, with some excellent craft beer places (e.g. stout) within walking distance. I was able to find a parking space for my car near Wilcox Ave and Delongpre Ave every night of my stay. The pod concept is great. (If you've stayed in a capsule hotel in Japan and liked it, you'll like this.) Highly recommend, will stay again.
