The hostel is very close to the walk of fame, but also sufficiently away from all the actions, so not too noisy. The staff are helpful and kind. I didn't stay for too long, but I noticed there were washing facilities, and a kitchen in the room. The only problem is that the room smelled a little bit funny (but that's what happens when you are sharing the room with a bunch of people I guess...), and there were an army of cockroaches to greet you in the bathroom and the kitchen.

Very convenient location. Close to highway for travel to universal and beaches, prime spot for the hollywood walk of fame. There was night activities at the hostel every night.

Had a great time at the Banana Bungalow, there was heaps of opportunities to make friends and they had a wide range of activities to sign up for at a great price. Lots of free dinners and beer, would recommend especially to a single traveller or if you don't have a car as they do lots of trips to popular spots on the cheap

I booked a 4-bed room but realized that there are in fact 2 rooms linked together to share one bathroom and a kitchen. It's nice to have a TV in the room but sometimes it can be noisy if people in another room are chatting and watching TV. It is convenient to go to nearby metro station and only 2 metro stations away from Universal studios.

Great location in Hollywood, next to metro station and all iconic things of hollywood are within walking distance on the same street. Facilities are clean, staffs are friendly. Nice hostel

The best thing about this hostel for me was the social atmosphere, as I came to LA for the first time as a solo traveller for only a few nights. Something was going on almost every night, so I got the chance to meet lots of other people. In particular the wine tasting evening and free taco/karaoke night was surprisingly fun (beforehand I could only picture it being somewhat cringe-worthy), helped along by free drinks! I found the staff to be friendly and helpful, and a good laugh to boot!
