Stayed here for two nights in a private room. Room was clean and tidy and the price was very affordable. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel has activities / events every night and has day trips available which makes planning your time in LA helpful. Wi-fi works well both in the common area and the bedrooms. Would definitely stay...

This little hostel is what it is! The staff were super friendly and very helpful and great knowledge of the area. The rooms were clean and nicely fitted, we had a private 4 share. Nice bathrooms and common area was huge. Huge kitchen and games room and tv lounge space. Always things going on, like trivia lights and party tour... More

It's a cheap but good option in West Hollywood. The parking is not the best, but suits everybody. Don't expect luxury, but friendly staff and fun. We shared a mixed room for 12 and it was OK! The bathroom was big enough.

As far as hostels go this one is pretty good but like any hostel don't expect the room to be immaculately clean. We only stayed 3 nights so it was manageable. Lucky for us we can both fall asleep with a bit of noise cos let me tell you this place is really loud. They host events on during the... More

If you're travelling and want to meet new people, have fun but still stay in a clean, safe hostel then the Banana Bungalow is a good choice. If you want to be right in the middle of Hollywood however then book somewhere else. There is another Banana Bungalow in West Hollywood that looks to be in a better location but... More

My partner and I stayed in 2 different private rooms (due to a Grand Canyon/Vegas trip half way through) and thought it was fantastic. The rooms were spacious and clean. We had a double bed and bunk in our room, a fridge, microwave, tv, balcony with chairs, and aircon. We couldn't get the plug to work in the bath but... More

I stayed there for 6 nights in a dorm room that is shared by 6 females. There are 3 bunk beds in the room and one bathroom. And, free wi-fi worked in my room. All staffs are friendly. Although I’m not good at speaking English because I’m not an English speaker, they tried understanding my terrible English, and I felt... More

I initially stayed at the sister hostel which was terrible. Transferred to this hostel which was a great decision. I stayed in the female only dorm. Everyone was so friendly. It's clean and very safe. The communal area is a great way to make friends. This was one of my favourite hostels. Unfortunately I fell ill, luckily one of the... More

I've stayed at many hostels all around the world, and I can say that this was one of the worst hostel experiences for me (and my friend). When you stay at a hostel, lets face it, you don't pay for nice beach views and personalised name tages...you pay for somewhere to sleep with a clean bathroom. I surely didn't get... More
