Welcome to the Anderson Estates. The best hostel in Los Angeles for international travelers.


The Anderson Estates features several properties, including the famed “Rochester Mansion”, home to prominent Hollywood actor, Eddie “Rochester” Anderson (Gone With The Wind, Cabin in the Sky). Eddie loved the artist community and thrived off creating fellowship. He enjoyed making people smile and being a source of inspiration to everyone he would meet. We are happy to continue his legacy.


Our historic Hollywood mansion is rich with not only history, but a unique mix of cool artists and friendly, knowledgeable staff from around the world. We welcome true vacationers from all walks of life, including youth travelers, business execs, adventurous backpackers, creatives and more. While you have your fair share of USA hostels, the Anderson Estates are a cut above the rest.

We offer many amenities including free breakfast, free internet, free washer/dryer, daily activities, and a short walk to the metro. We strike the perfect balance between a laid-back Cali vibe and Hollywood excitement. Looking to cool off from the summer sun? Take a dip in our pool! Would you like to record your next big hit? Be inspired in our vintage piano room. No matter what the travel occasion, the Anderson Estates has got you covered!

Come be a part of Hollywood history and find out why we are the number one hostel in LA! The Anderson Estates look forward to hosting you today.


Happy traveling!

We have free breakfast every day for guests that includes waffles, pancakes, fresh fruit, oatmeal, coffee, breakfast burritos and orange juice.

Our estates are rich in Hollywood history. The property is owned by the family of a famous actor, the first African-American actor to be given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
