"Decent digs for backpackers" Orbit Hostel Tip by DavoMac

Orbit Hostel, Los Angeles: 159 reviews and 3 photos

We had a good time at the Orbit. We were out most of the days but there was plenty of room to sit in or outside and have a drink and a cheap feed from their kitchen. One night there was even standup comedians performing in the lounge. Some were very funny, but others were less than average. All with high aspirations no doubt for the future. Our room contained a double bed plus 2 single bunks. It was quite stuffy but and if you opened the window you were bound to hear plenty of sirens fly past. So not easy to get to sleep if your room was above the street. Split 3 ways, it was cheap though. They have dorm rooms that are even cheaper.

Unique Qualities: I'd receommend this place based on price, location (10 mins walk to Farmers Market) and social interaction.
