Hands down the best hostel I have stayed at. Staff are brilliant and it's safe and secure. Always activities on. Loved it here, has a reputation for being a party hostel but I always found the noise level went down at a reasonable hour around midnight. Would totally come back

We stayed here for a week and it was great! Check in was simple and we had the private room (which I recommend highly). The room was very spacious with 1 double bed and 1 single bed, kitchen and bathroom. As there was only two of us, we had plenty of room. The location was great, close to the buzz... More

The room was nice, and the people were fun. It's not located especially close to anything but enough amenities around. They have events scheduled every night and tours during the day. The staff could be a little more engaging, but will definitely be back.

We stayed with a friend for one night, we paid one of the privates rooms and it was pretty nice with microwave, fridge, air condition and private bathroom. The staff is really nice, they help you any moment and they're young people so you'll have fun for sure. BUT if you're a backpacker you may no like it, the common... More

I spent 2 nights in this youth hostel and i loved it ! The welcoming & the room were perfect ; cool and clean, I couldn't ask for more. The location is amazing, it's on Hollywood Boulevard at only a few feet from the first path walk "star". A liquor store is just in front if you want to drink... More

This would be my 2nd stay in Banana Bungalow Hollywood and I would stay I would probably stay here again if I were back in LA. We got a premium room with a kitchen, and it had a microwave, fridge, sink and utensils. The place also had laundry facilities and was close to the bus going to the airport (8USD)... More

Me and my friend was super excited to stay in this hostel, looking at the website, it looked great. We went for the budget dorm room. Was disappointed to find out bedroom door didn't lock and what's more, the lockers in each room where tiny and didn't look all that secure. The breakfast was a bare minimum of coffee, toast... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst passing through LA. It was a great place for backpackers to stay and a very friendly atmosphere. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm with another friend and my two other friends were in a different room which was inconvenient because of booking different times. The overall experience was excellent...

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
