  • My short stay at podshare was hands down the best way to begin 2014. Trying to decide my favorite part of the experience is nearly impossible, although what I will remember the most is the amazing new connections I have made in just under three days. The staff are so welcoming I never wanted to leave, and my fellow "podestrians" quickly became my newest besties! ;)
    Although i felt a bit timid upon arriving, within hours of starting my Hollywood trip I felt right at home dancing my butt off at a night club down the street with Spence and Ryan...as if we had known each other for years! One of the nights I was staying here they had a comedy night which exceeded all expectations and left my cheeks sore and happy! :)
    All in all, staying at podshare enhanced my experience in Hollywood, and having my super cozy and clean pod to come back to assured a stress free trip. There is no doubt I will be back again, and most likely sooner than amazing Elvina and her even more amazing staff expect! Thanks podshare for sharing this incredible adult slumber party to the world!!!

  • The place was awesome to stay at while in Hollywood.They make you feel right at home. It's an amazing place for travelers to hang out, meet new people from all over the world and have loads of fun. Everyone who worked there were super cool and go the extra mile to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I highly recommend Podshare to everyone!!!

  • This community was incredible. Housekeeping everyday--therefore very clean and overall I just felt so comfortable. I felt right at home. The host (Mike I think) and everyone else who worked there was super friendly...I hardly wanted to leave. If you're on a budget, like myself, this is a god-send as there was plenty of food, coffee, etc available in the kitchen. Roku was perfect for late night movies in the pod...extremely organized and overall a great service. I'm trying to stay there again during my next trip. Thank you podshare!!!!

  • Great place to stay! The pods are equipped with your own flat screen tv mount on the wall. Oh, and don't forget about the free all-you-can-watch Netflix. This was a jackpot.

  • I had the best experience at the Podshare in Hollywood! The place has a very convenient location, it's clean and comfortable and the staff is always welcoming and friendly. You will feel at home here, and you'll have the chance to meet a bunch of new nice friends too. Highly recommended!!!

  • Podshare is a unique idea and it was just what I was looking for as I was passing through L.A. with errands to do. Somewhere friendly, cheap and accessible minus the formalities of a hotel with a whole heap of amenities that I don't really need.
    Comfy bed, gave me all I was looking for at the right price and with a smile to boot.
    Hooray for Podshare! Hope you guys keep blossoming!

  • I came across Elvina and PodShare serendipitously on airbnb, and I am absolutely THRILLED that I did! Elvina is perhaps the brightest, most organized, and thoughtful person I have ever met. She communicates well, she is always smiling brightly, and she's always wondering how she can make your stay a better or more memorable one.

    Upon arriving at PodShare, I quickly realized that it is not just a chic, modern, clean place to call home for a few days...in fact, it is much more than that. It is a family, a community, a colony of like-minded young people who share common values and are ready to take over the world. Some of my fellow PodMates come from far-flung locales continents away, and yet they destiny led them to this focal point, this community, and once together, they created unforgettable memories together. Though as a place to stay, PodShare was superb (clean sheets, comfy bed, clean bathroom/kitchen, super-convenient location), it is THE PEOPLE (including both guests and staff) that really make PodShare such a remarkable and unforgettable place. This magical place has left its mark upon me, and I am happier, more optimistic, and more driven than I was when I arrived.

    If you're coming to Los Angeles, go ahead and stay at PodShare, where you'll make memories and social connections that will last a lifetime!

  • With a pretty good arrangement and quite an affordable cost PODShare is the perfect place to stay and enjoy Hollywood and north LA, especially when travelling alone or in a small group. The facilities and arrangements are exactly as listed and the people are very friendly and helpful. I would love to come back again and recommend this place strongly.
