  • Awesome place. The girl running it is the owner and also built the interior almost completely by herself. The staff were welcoming and enthusiastic, without being too annoying. The lobby is very cosy, with a giant projector where we could watch the Oscars. I have stayed in pods before in Singapore, and these pods compare very well, very comfortable with plenty of room for clothes and baggage. (The only issue is the total lack of privacy, a curtain would really be perfect!)

  • It's a very small hostel, but each "pod" is equipped with very comfortable gadgets that gives you the experience as if you're in your own room... best part is, no climbing up ladders to get to the top bunk bed.. :)

  • First time traveling out of Australia - PodShare was my first stop on a 6 week trip around the US and Canada. I could not recommend it highly enough - the staff were amazing, and so was everyone that was staying at the hostel. The whole setup was brilliant and definitely gave you value for your money. Would recommend to anyone traveling to LA. 10/10

  • I had a great experience; first time using a hostel. I thought the staff (Emily) was very nice and accommodating. The facilities were very clean and organized. They had cool little group activity things planned that made me feel more welcome. I onlywish I could have stayed longer!!! PodShare is an awesome place! I hope to go back to LA soon and stay again! -Timber

  • The staff are SO lovely. They make this a great place to stay. I stayed here for two nights and I wish I booked longer. The Netflix is awesome. My pod was very cool and came with plenty of electricity plugs, full linen, a fan and NETFLIX for late at night. Very comfy. Such a cool, cosy concept. Only 1 bathroom but it's not really a problem because only a few people can stay at Podshare and that's what I loved about it - feels like your crashing at a friends house. Very happy with my stay.

  • This hostel is definitely a treasure, very different from others in the neighbourhood. I enjoyed my weekend at Podshare because I was looking for a relaxing atmosphere, where I could just lounge around and watch one of the many TV shows/movies they have on the personal TV. However, if you are looking for a fun place I wouldn't recommend this hostel. It doesn't have activities planned and guests barely spoke to one another when I was there. Really just depends on what you are looking for.

  • Absolutely loved the place! It was so different and neat compared to so many other places that I have stayed at before. The staff was very helpful and lovely. The only minor problem was that the main pod on the first floor behind the reception area could be quite noisy when movies or so were running in the front.
