I stayed in a 16 share dorm room. The bed was very uncomfortable. On my second night I couldn’t sleep, so I went to the basement in the hope of getting some rest. When I got there, the air was filled with marijuana smoke which was very annoying. Another annoyance was the small number of bathrooms. Each morning there was... More

This place was recommended to me by my travel agent and I am so happy I took his advice! I stayed 3 nights in late May/early June. The hostel is in a good location and is within walking distance to bus services, grocery stores, The Grove, Beverly Centre and various eateries and small stores. I stayed in a private room... More

We stayed four nights at the Banana Bungalow while travelling and were quite happy. The staff and other travellers were all friendly and the location is convenient for sightseeing. The free parking is limited but useful and while the breakfast is undeniably basic it was very welcome! The (dorm) rooms are by no means palace-like but the ensuite bathroom was... More

If I had known when I was making the booking that this is the same place that used to be known as Orbit Hotel, I would not have made the booking. This stay was just as bad as the first one. The staff on check-in were very rude and then later in the evening when I came back the two... More

We stayed here from thursday to monday. We were 11 people and we got 2 dorms right next to each other. That was very nice, so we didn't have to run through the whole hostel to find the others. Every night they have arrangements, with is very cheap/free and is SO FUN! We went on the friday event where we... More

My friends and I stayed here for two nights. The facilities were quite average. Bathrooms not super clean and bedding a little manky. We had a room on the main street side, you could hear everything from the street. A fight broke out one morning between some young men, and we could hear everything they were saying and yelling. Overall... More

I've been a long time fan of Banana Bungalow West Hollywood and I go back every year. It is by far one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The property itself is clean.. Spotlessly clean. Two outdoor patio/tiki garden seating areas to socialize. MASSIVE kitchen with lots of food storage and fridges. Perfect for the budget traveler who... More
