Overall, this hostel is much better than their hollywood location. Overall i will say its good. Recommended. However some staff are rude. Some girls working the reception seem arrogant and full of themselves. Come on you are customer service, you are here to serve customers not to look at them like they are inferior to you. I hope someone teaches... More

I have stayed at this hostel on two different occasions (in private rooms with ensuites only). I was very worried at first as I had never stayed in a hostel before, but I was very impressed with how clean everything was particularly the bathroom and the beds are very comfortable. My only complaint would be that even though they have... More

Stayed 12 nights all up nothing but rave reviews made some great friends and really close to malls and a short and cheap Uber ride to any attraction. Rooms are what's to be expected of a hostel really nice layout. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm and had no dramas. Nice common area.

We are two 21 year old girls who were traveling America when we stayed in Banana Bungalow in August. The hostel was nice, we were in a 6 bed room with an en-suite which was standard, we didn't have any complaints about the room. The two guys who work there are brilliant, really friendly and lovely. however the girls on... More

The online booking was very easy and it was not expensive at all ! When we arrived people were really nice, there is great chillout zone, party nights, bufet and breakfast ! I really liked this place and I would definitely go there again :)

Only stayed one night as they were fully booked for our remaining nights in LA. Rooms were clean as were the bathrooms. Laundry was good (a dryer did eat my money but the staff fixed it). Free WiFi and computers to use. Good tours and deals and the activities guy (Irish) was really friendly. Good definitely recommend.

We absolutely loved this place - we found it to be so accommodating for the backpacker (free local and interstate calls / very good internet / computers / free breakfast etc). We had our own private room, it had great amenities there - tv, fridge, microwave, own shower, balcony. It was very comfortable. They had themed nights too (including free... More

Stayed here in a private for 3 nights. Really nice room for a hostel. Had a TV, fridge, microwave, private shower. Cant really complain, and If I did it would be unfair as you have to remember that this is a hostel and not a hotel. However, this is a very high standard hostel. Very helpful and friendly staff. Cool... More

location is good it's near Kmart a whole foods and other supermarket. Right near Melrose for some good shopping and the farmers market. Didn't really enjoy the party life every night, we couldn't just chill out in the lounge after midnight we had to be in our rooms or where the party was which was annoying because we weren't bothering...

Hostel was quite good value for money. Stayed with my mate in a six bed dorm. Good wifi, free breakfast - staff were very helpful. Plenty of bus routes on the main street outside. Few improvements could be made - plug in our bathroom didn't seem to work (room 202). Overall I didn't have any issue with the hostel and... More
