Pod Share was easily my coolest AirBnB experience. Elvina was super communicative and welcoming. The pod were great, clean, spacious and comfortable. The accommodation is located at a very central location from where you can take public transport to any part of LA conveniently. Everything touristy is a walk away, all good clubs and bars are within 10 mins walking distance.
Elvina treats her guests really well....more like welcoming old friends back. Will miss this current place however would be surely back to podshare new location.
Had a great stay at Podshare. Elvina was really nice; they even refunded me 2 nights (my airline went on strike and I had to cancel last minute).
The location is great, only a few minutes walk from the Chinese theatre and all Hollywood attractions, can get there very easily from the airport and the underground station and bus lines are very near as well. I got to visit everything i wanted without having a car.
Everybody was very friendly and the Pod concept is great ! What was a definite plus was the fact that they had loads of food and shower products that belonged to the community so you didn't need to buy a bunch of stuff.
Anyway, I really enjoyed my stay, could not recommend this enough !
I LOVE podshare! It's in the perfect location for exploring Hollywood, it's exceptionally well priced and the accommodation is clean and comfortable. Elvina is a fantastic host who was keen to make the stay as friendly as possible. I would highly recommend.
The place was ok, nothing great. I reached the podshare at 8 in the morning as my confirmation said it had flexible checkin, but i had to wait until 12PM to get checked in. Overall the place is clean.
Perfect location to Hollywood, Clean pod and bathroom at a reasonable price. I was able to make friends from all around the world. I would definitely recommend the pod to anyone who wants to travel LA.
We walked into Podshare and said " oh my god...are we on Real World?!" We were a group of 12 who rented out the entire location and we couldn't be more happy about it. This location is truly beyond words. So many notable sights are nearby and there is easy access public transportation which is much easier than trying to drive around. When we arrived we were greeted by Michael who is simply wonderful. He gave us the tour, touch screen computers,screen projector, personal TV's and all, and finished with the fridge full of beer and food. We loved the place so much we decided to spend the first night there and party.
On another note, be careful in the neighborhood. There are strange people in the streets, drug dealers, shady characters and of course the homeless. Its Hollywood, with the glam comes the not so glam. Speaking of Glam, we did see our fair share of pretty famous celebrities on this very small street. I think a total of 6.
If you are thinking of booking here, just stop thinking and do it. It will be the best hostel decision you have ever made.
Podshare is a great idea!I really liked staying here! You have the right amount of space in your pod, it's comfortable,you have your own TV with Netflix, enough towels in the bathroom... Didn't interact that much with the others because I was doing things in LA all day. It was never too loud to sleep, you have privacy, a kitchen to use, a big bathroom (even though everybody shares this one bathroom, you never have to wait that long), it was clean and everybody was nice and helpful. The location is perfect: Metro station is close by, Hollywood Blvd right around the corner, supermarket only a few minutes away...
Definitely recommend people who want to meet new people and don't want to spend lots of money for a hotel, to stay here. Its better than a regular hostel!
I would stay here again if I come to LA again some day.
