Loved this place!:) Very clean, friendly and helpful staff, free breakfast everyday, free/cheap dinners 5 nights a week, cheap/discounted tours both day and night all for $28 bucks a night in an 8 room dorm! Our dorm had its own fridge, kitchen and bathroom/toilet. We upgraded to a private room for our last few nights and it was better than... More

I just recently stayed here, after it being recommended to me for a few times. It's the end of my time in America and I wanted to do the touristy Hollywood tours, so stayed in Hollywood so I wouldn't have to walk far. This is a hostel unlike no other, there are kitchens in the dorms, and the bunks are... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks which is a long time to stay in Hollywood, but this hostel was just so nice. Located at the end of the strip, it was a refreshing walk to get to the main Hollywood Boulevard attractions. The hostel was clean and the staff were friendly. We were put in a room with a private...

Stayed here for a few nights during our trip around the States - cheap and cheerful, we were upgraded to a private room on arrival which we were chuffed about! Breakfast in the morning is limited but you get what you pay for. Rooms have enough space for what they're meant for - but with only a fan on the... More

Spent a week at Banana Bungalows last summer to end my travels through the US. It definitely ended my travels with a bang after spending a relaxing fortnight in Santa Monica. Banana bungalows is very lively!! I made so many friends so don't hesitate to come here if you are a solo traveler. They put on so many activities so... More

Smelt bad and no air con but asked to be moved and eventually got to a better room. This hotel is more for back packers and students. Its not the ritz and never will be. Although despite the... More

We stayed in Banana Bungalow for a couple of nights as part of a road trip. We didn't really enjoy our stay. I should start out by saying that we already had plans both nights so didn't join in on the organised events... This meant we missed out on the sociable element of the hostel which I think is a...

Our room was super dirty and gross, we had an infestation of ants, all over the cutlery and inside the drawers in the kitchen. The staff came to try and sort it out but there were still small ants crawling everywhere, so needless to say we didn't cook in the kitchen as they were fully booked and unable to move... More
