We recommend parking in the lots near the hostel rather than on the street due to varying parking regulations.
There are parking lots near the hostel. Rates start at $12 for 24 hours. There is also metered and free street parking near the hostel. Meters are free from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. from Sunday through Wednesday and 8 pm to 11 am on Sundays. For Thursday/Friday/Saturdays metered parking is until midnight. and all day Sunday;
Please note that the meters north of our building are a tow zone at 8 pm on certain nights. So, we do not recommend parking by the hostel because of the many restrictions, making it easy to get a parking ticket. You can ask on arrival how to get to the pay lots. Our favorite is only 2 blocks away on Cherokee Blvd.
If you would like to find street parking, then we recommend you try using the Parker by Streetline, Inc. app available for both IPhone and Android. This parking app was debuted in Hollywood in 2010 and is designed to help you find available parking spaces and lots.
