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...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week at the beginning of May, in a private room, not the dorms. Everything was fine - our room was spacious, we had a microwave, a mini-fridge, free wi-fi, a TV and an air conditioner. The bathroom and the room overall felt a little dirty, but I think it might just have... More

I stayed one night here before catching my flight back to Bangkok on 24th April 2015. The hostel was located right on the Hollywood Blvd. with about 15 mins. walk to the epic centre of Hollywood activities. It is an awesome location. The room was spacious with kitchen and bathroom right inside the room. The place is well kept and... More

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. We had a cute little private room that included a twin and a double bed. We had our own bathroom, mini fridge and microwave. The only thing I didn't really care for was the limited parking where you had to give the staff your car keys for the night in case... More

I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm for 2 nights on the recommendation of a friend. Not really sure that she was talking about the same place. The staff member who first showed me around was quite friendly but majority of people working there seemed bored. Social activities were available from the hostel which is good and the hostel...

The staff were not very welcoming and friendly upon arrival and during my stay. I felt like i was bothering them. However, apart from that, everything went well. I stayed in a 6-bed mixed dorm. The room was pretty big and the bathroom as well as the kitchen area were clean. The kitchen is a great place to hang out... More

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.
