It was a fun stay!


Well situated blocks from Hollywood action, Banana Bungalow is excellent value for dollar at a prime location in Los Angeles. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was a nice touch, and the place has a pleasantly laid back atmosphere.


Very good hostel with lots of events planned, for every day of the week. Not in the best of locations if you do not have a car though. It is possible to get everywhere in LA on public transport, it just takes ages.


We enjoyed our stay here. The location is great if you want to be near Hollywood. Free breakfast which is toast & cereal. Coffee tank needs to be disposed of though as is old & disgusting! Overall place could do with a clean up, we had ants in the room too as they have a kitchen in each room, which I think is a bad idea as people just leave food out & rooms are not cleaned very well regulary. But it is still an ok place to stay & we enjoyed the atmosphere.


Awesome place to stay with lots of activities organised by the staff, who were all super friendly and helpful! Only drama is the poor/non existent air conditioners. Other than that a great place to stay in LA.


Coolest place in LA


Great social atmosphere loved staying here


good hostel, location is great and awesome party atmosphere! also steyed in the WeHo one.


Hollywood is a dump but this is still a reasonably central location to be in. Pretty much as good as a hostel gets: TVs and kitchen in every room, events every day, shuttles to the beach, friendly staff etc. They should probably treat their driver better though, sounds like he has to work really long hours


DO NOT STAY IF SINGLE TRAVELLER! Had a staff member ask me and several friends if we "wanted some black d**k in us" at night, repulsive.. Also one of the staff allowed underage drinking and drug taking.. Saw several fights happen here many people who didn't stay at the hostel lurk around late at night.. Did not feel safe here at all and the rooms where filthy.. Much better options in hollywood avoid at all costs
