Give and take
Check in and out was a breeze I came into podshare realizing it was a shared area BUT the one of the podmates was sick all night. Lots of coughing and throwing up. While I felt bad for him I got very little rest that first night. Not much privacy but it was a good value. Bit of give and take.

I'm a Podshare Fan!
I LOVED it! Look, let's be honest. It's a hostel. The amenities are communal, from the kitchen to the bathroom to the only big mirror in front of the only door which is open all the time. But, the location couldn't be more convenient. You can walk out and you are less than a minute away from Hollywood Blvd. You can hear the Sunday Farmers market and its placed on a side street where you don't feel claustrophobic. Before I even checked in, Ashley checked on me to make sure I knew how to get there. And gave me extra info about the LA shuttles. When I arrived, she made my bed with fresh sheets and she was always around to ask how my day was. Jose, one of Podshare's caregivers, is sweet, honest, and friendly. And he will get loud if he needs to! They are bunk beds with comfortable mattresses, with a personal outlet and light in each one. There's chalk space to write your name and small lockers to use. Locks are sold separately. Quiet time is at around 10pm and if you are a light sleeper, there are plenty of complementary earplugs. Definitely take advantage of them! Overall, this is the perfect experience of you want to travel to LA on a budget. What you see is what you get! And in my opinion, it's worth it.

Very good 8.0
it was good overall :) minor things: long wait for bathroom; might need a two baths at least or separate baths for F/M ? also the ladder smell so bad i could smell the steel on my hand all night.

Great hostel option
Great location and the beds were comfortable. The facility is small but the staff is responsive. Just don't expect a hotel for this price. I will be staying again.
