I have nothing bad to say about this hostel - I wasn't in LA to party, so I was happy that even though they arranged different parties and outings, the hostel itself was very calm. The staff was nice, hostel was clean, wifi worked really well and I was very happy that they had lockers in the rooms that you can use with a normal padlock. I would definitely recommend this hostel, I felt safe there and that's not always granted with hostels. I'm very happy with my stay :)

Best hostel in almost 4 years travelling - lots of fun - lots of party nights - lots of free booze - lots of hot chicks - expensive but that's LA - and location pretty outta the way but free shuttle most nights to the clubs

I would recommend the Banana Bungalow. The staff were friendly and helpful. The kitchen is enormous, and the hostel feels safe. Good location for walking also. I would not recommend taking the airport shuttle, however. I called up with the time I needed to be at the airport and arrived 45 minutes late despite little traffic that day. The shuttle driver grabbed coffees, socialized at hotel stops, and even dropped his wife off to work on the way after I had told him I was going to miss my flight.

Not so closed to Hollywood boulevard so that a car or hostel shuttle is needed. Activities and clubs are awesome.

Bobby was incredibly helpful! He helped us sort our car parking and couldn't do enough to make our stay a good one. Other members of staff were great too.

Amazing!! Little bit more expensive but this is the place to be, especially for first time travellers! Staff are excellent and activities are fun and convenient. Best hostel I've ever stayed at across the world.

Banana Bungalow is a very nice and social hostel. The courtyard, lounge area and cellar provide a lot of space to relax or meet up with people. There's a big kitchen, plenty of bathrooms and breakfast provided. The hostel organizes an activity every night, going from free bbq to party bus to karaoke. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean. To be honest, I was sad to leave.

Absolutely loved staying at this hostel! Right in the heart of West Hollywood, just a stones throw away from the Farmer's Market and a short uber ride away from the strip. Great vibes and the staff (Niall!) were very kind and accommodating. A lot of hostels I've stayed in are very business orientated and were mainly concerned with giving us a bed for a couple of nights. This hostel, however, made sure that everyone felt right at home and made sure that we were all having a good time!

Was a really fun hostel the staff was really cool and they had tons of cool activities for people to do. They were a bit expensive because they were a bit far from places to see. But I had a good time.

Very nice hostel overall. Staff is friendly and James is a legend. There is a lot of activities. However, there was an error with management and there was a traveller who was sent to the wrong room, this resulted in myself being rudely awoken at 5 am by two drunk guests claiming that i was in one of their beds - as the numbers didn't add up. management took no responsibility for this and refused to compensate me for the error, which is pretty weak considering how expensive it is to stay here.

great hostel to stay at, lots of good events and some cool people to meet too. price is par for hollywood, hostel was lovely and clean with helpful staff and great kitchen facilities, loads of fridge space and cookers etc. breakfast was good, cereal, fruit, bread etc. can walk to places but lots of buses nearby. enjoyed stay so much that I decided to come rebook for the last few days of my usa travelling.

The hostel was good, but my co-travelers and I especially appreciated the hostel activities. If you want to see the city and its fancy neighborhoods, we absolutely recommend the tour with Armani aka Jesus. Thanks to Armani aka Jesus, we even had the chance to meet Justin Bieber. And if you want to party in Hollywood, the hostel has some great stuff to offer, too. Jesus, if you read this: contact Angie. Codeword "I believe I can fly" ;) We would stay at this hostel again anytime. TheGermanGirls
