i loved that they serve free nutella for breakfast, i have never found a hostel that does that and i was also really impressed with the quality of people working in this hostel. Elena (i think she is italian) is super helpful i suggest you reach out to her if you need anything. i think i made a new friend! i'm definitely coming back and recommend this place!

Our stay was okay, the location wasn't the best, it's close to the walk of fame and about 15 min walk to the Chinese Theatre etc, but to get to Santa Monica on public transport it took about 90 mins. The wifi only worked outside of the rooms and was pretty slow. You're only given a sheet, no quilt, so we were freezing a few of the nights. We got told off when we were airing our room out by having the door open during the day, but at 3am people were allowed to play basketball and shout.

Thank you for your review of Banana Bungalow Hollywood! Reviews really help us target the needs of our guests and make improvements for the next time you stay with us! Unfortunately, Santa Monica is far from all of the hostels in Hollywood. LA is huge! We do offer blankets in the office though, and we apologize that you did not receive one on your bed. For security, we try to keep the dorm rooms locked, so no other guests can enter. Make sure to visit the next time you are in Los Angeles!

Would not stay here again as I was overcharged by $5.24 (apparently they don't charge cents and just round - that was $0.24 cents of it - a rip off). They have a $5 card fee. She said that it was on this website and their website, I said that I didn't see it on either website. I would not stay here again, as I'm not happy about their rounding policy and not being advised until that I got to check in, that they have a $5 fee for paying on card !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your review of Banana Bungalow Hollywood! Reviews really help us target the needs of our guests and make improvements for the next time you stay with us! We usually do round down on from the balance due, saving our guests some cents. We list the $5 Credit Card fee on our website, and make sure to offer an ATM on site to those guests who would rather not pay the CC fee. Make sure to visit the next time you are in Los Angeles!
