Orbit Hotel & Hostel

Orbit Hotel & Hostel calls itself the “sexiest hostel in the world,” and who are we to argue? It is located in the incredibly hip Melrose area of Los Angeles, so it has that going for it – guests can walk to many of the area’s main attractions. That is especially true if you consider the many beautiful (if surgically enhanced) people of L.A. to be some of the city’s main attractions.

There are both dorm style rooms and private rooms at Orbit Hotel & Hostel, with private rooms ranging from sleeping 1 person to sleeping four. Every room boasts private bathrooms, even the dorms, which is a nice perk not found in every hostel. Even more unusual is that every dorm comes with 4-6 TVs per room and their own private masseuse. If that is not the epitome of Melrose, we do not know what is.

Some of the amenities you will find at Orbit Hotel & Hostel are:



  • Free linens (towels available)
  • Free breakfast
  • Internet access and WiFi
  • On site restaurant, spa and night club
  • Airport pickup available
  • Luggage storage and security lockers
  • Laundry facilities
  • No lockout and no curfew

At Orbit Hotel & Hostel, the emphasis is on having fun and meeting other travelers. There are frequent parties in the cafe, and the hostel hosts free barbecues once each week (ask when you check in). Guests can also take advantage of special access to local clubs and get to and from the Sunset Strip in the hostel’s free “Club Shuttle.” Yes, if your goal in Los Angeles is to meet new people and socialize, then this is definitely the place to be.

Orbit Hotel & Hostel has been listed in a couple of popular travel guidebooks, so if this is the place you want to stay you will be well advised to make reservations early.
