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.

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!

Great place for a decent price
Came in a little after 10:30PM but the place was clean, and very quiet, love the comfort on the beds, didn’t get to see it well since I left early in the morning

Great place!
It was a cozy environment with kind and courteous people. Beds were comfortable and the location was located in a very convenient area near lots of shops and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable alternative to hotels and motels.

Amazing and sparkling clean!
An amazing place to stay, easily the best hotel/hostel I have stayed at in Los Angeles! The cleanliness of this podshare hotel was superb, there was literally not a single speck of dust or dirt on the floor anywhere. There are flatscreen Samsung tvs in every pod. The blankets are very clean, not grungy at all. The manager of this hostel is very friendly, warm, and intelligent; she took the time to personally greet every visitor, show them around, and make them feel right at home. She is always helping a guest out at any given time. The kitchen, which had a fully working stove and refrigerator, was just as immaculate. The hotel looks a bit sketchy on the outside, but is the complete opposite once inside. I would highly recommend this hotel/hostel to anyone looking to stay in downtown Los Angeles (it is about 10 min. walking distance from Little Tokyo).

Exceptional Hostel
So overall as hostels go, this downtown LA location was exceptional. It’s walking distance to Little Tokyo and a very short distance from Union Station. For just needing to stay the night to catch a train the next day, it was a fun and refreshing urban hostel experience, and remarkably comfortable. This was my first experience with PodShare and I would highly recommend it for an unexpected overnight or a planned adventure. I hope to try PodShare again in another location and hope they expand.

I had a horrible experience you have bedbugs....BURN THE MATTRESSES AND START OVER!!! I got bit all over legs, back, hands etc. had to wash all my clothes and move to a new bed for the duration of my stay. I felt like a junky at how bad I was itching. I think the co living it self is OK but it needs more privacy like curtains or something. the bathrooms need to be cleaned more often they have a mildew smell in the showers and hair in the drain. the floor of the showers um nasty. the t.vs must be for show because they never worked, if to many people trying to watch would buffer every 2 minutes. meeting new people was nice but you need to stop being cheap and upgrade, upgrade UPGRADE!!! this place has potential but needs WORK!!! PS. stop using the excuse of bed bugs from people coming in and out because hotels have the same traffic and I have yet to have them when I go.
