Stayed in this hotel for a few nights. Initially booked it for about 12 days. My first night I was completed knackered after a 20.5 hour flight from Fiji to LA. Got to the hostel which looked abit isolated. My bedroom was facing the garden area where there was music, lots of travellers and the horrible smell of marijuana (I... More

We had a great time staying here for 5 nights in July. The hostel is really close to the main attractions at Hollywood Boulevard, it only takes a 5 min walk to the metro and then a 5 min underground ride. The hostel itself organises loads of events and are beyond helpful if you have questions about planning your own... More

Me and one of my friends stayed in a private room. The room was clean, the bed was comfy and the whole hostel was just awesome. The location was good, as it was practically on the walk of fame! There was a metro and bus stations close by, which could take you all over LA! If you're over 21, they... More

The location is near the center of Hollywood. The room is clean and the staffs are nice and willing to help. The outside bar and eating area are just relaxing. The only thing that needs to be improved might be the wifi coverage, the room I lived hardly got the wifi signal(east south corner of the hostel). Other than that,... More

Really cool hostel, out door bar area was great. Nice and big, plenty of room. Great rates and private bathrooms in queen rooms, big comfy bed, felt more like a hotel than a hostel, was very impressed. Lock up your stuff in the dorms, my watch was stolen! Otherwise it was a great place to stay!

This hostel is a great option for people who want to party. They have some great things to do everyday. The breakfast is very good and it's nice to have a kitchen inside the room. (all of them have one). There's no bugs and it's clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. I'd stay there again.

Loved the banana bungalow. Made lots of new friends thru the organised nights out. Most of the staff super friendly. Loved the cheap and cheerful nights out, loved the outdoor areas. Only thing would recommend would be more cleaning in bathrooms and turning off music in party room before 11pm. Other than that it is a great choice for a... More

I stayed in this hostel for 6 nights, the rooms are ok however could do with an update and new bunk beds as they are very small and noisy. The rooms have a kitchen however there are limited pots, pans and plates to use this is also the case in the large communal kitchen. The hostel is busy and always... More
