I stayed in a six bed female dorm for five nights. On arrival the staff were pleasant enough. However, there was an issue with them overbooking the room and this was not resolved until 11pm that night. The staff were pretty rude and started stripping peoples beds believing that someone had not paid when actually it was there area they... More

A good stay, the private rooms are decent for the price and is close to the farmers markets for cheap meals. Staff are great, really helpful & they always have events on which are good value. Free breakfast is included. Easy to Hollywood area but takes about 3/4 of hour to Santa Monica esp in peak traffic. Only downside is... More

The rooms are fine and we had good people in our doom which makes it better If you want cash a trick... More

we stayed at banana bungalow for three nights in december 2014. Since we didnt want to share neither bed- nor bathroom with strangers we booked a private room. The room was very clean and we even had our own fridge and microwave which was very nice. Unfortunately our room was at the groundlevel and a little bit noisy. The breakfast... More

I have never been to a hostel before and I planned to stay there for only 3 nights. It ended up that I stayed for 1 month and all I can say is that I had the best time. The staff is very friendly and the volunteer workers are super nice and always helpful. Rooms are clean and the free... More

This's place is awesome. Plenty of communal space. Huge kitchen, which is always clean and tidy. Staff are helpful and genuinely friendly. A short walk from the bus stop to everywhere, Santa Monica, Hollywood Blvd, Studio City and anywhere else you can think of! We had a private double room as the price was similar to two dorm beds. Clean,... More
