Amazing, Would recommend.
Staff was very helpful, beds were comfortable, had plenty of room for my items. The location was in downtown where there's a growing night life on the eastside. I found overnight parking in front of Podshare. Spacious sitting area for eating, chilling, and using laptop. Amazing. Cheers.

This is a hostel, so don't expect it to be like a hotel. That said, DTLA Podshare is safe, clean, and well run. The price is exceptional for the area. I was able to explore the Arts District, Little Tokyo, and Downtown LA all on foot in a day. My poor even has a skyline view of the city.

If you literally just want a place to sleep, and get ready this place should be fine. Just be aware, you’re sleeping with other people. There’s bound to be some noise here and there.

Staff were awesome! Let me stow my gear till check in time, adjusted my reservation confirmation (it was for the next day!). Bed was very comfortable and drapes made it easy to sleep. Movie night. Right on the beach!

Be aware of what you're getting yourself into. There was nothing inherently wrong with this PodShare, but my experience could have been better if I knew a few details ahead of time. - If you arrive after 10pm, lights are out and there is no one to help you - there is no "check in". You'll receive an email with instructions on how to enter the premises and where to sleep. Because most of the other roommates were asleep already, I was hesitant to unzip my luggage in fear of causing too much noise, so I slept in the clothes that I traveled in. - There is a large window at the far end of the building. It's not covered. It lets a lot of light in, and is near a stoplight, which changes frequently. Recommend an eye mask if you prefer to sleep somewhere dark. - It is SO cold, and there are only thin sheets provided. Bring your own blanket or some warm jammies if you don't want to freeze during your stay. - the bathroom area is very small, and even at 0600 as the first one awake, the shower was lukewarm (a generous description - I had goosebumps by the end). - the pod itself was very comfortable, and despite all of the light, the noise was minimal. - the location is easy to find and is in a great area. There's a lot to do in DTLA, and it's a short drive from a lot of other attractions. Had I known those things in advance, I would have planned better ahead and likely would have really enjoyed my stay.

The location is very good and convenient!, you can walk to the downtown and there are good spot for food and fun rounding the property. Fair price for what you obtain.

The host D was super friendly! This is a very convenient and economical lodging option in downtown LA. Although I didn't sleep well because the outside traffic noise, the temperature seems to vary over the night, and I felt itchy sleeping there (probably have bed bugs)!

Definitely coming back!
Next time I’m in LA, I will absolutely come back to them! It was perfect!

I enjoyed the peacefulness of the place. The people who worked there were very nice and helpful. The beds were so comfortable with that memory foam. And the community kitchen was very useful. There were some bumps though. The bathrooms are so small and cramped I got claustrophobic. There wasn't a solid door between the toilets and the rest of the bathroom, but rather a folding paneled door. One of the showers stopped working and the other got a clog. The staff fixed the clog after a while. Overall I enjoyed it, but for the same price I could have gotten a room to myself and a free parking space.
