We only had a short stay here as the previous hostel we stayed in was terrible. We rang up and booked a room, and the staff member on the phone wasn't overly helpful, but we managed to get the booking completed. There were a lot of staff members working which was always helpful, but some needed a serious happy pill.... More

It's more like a 3.5 if that were possible, but I'm rounding up. PROS: Friendly staff - helpful, active, involved and engaged. Willing to answer questions and provide amenities on demand. The staff had activities you could get involved in every day and night for fairly reasonable pricing. They hosted parties which made the atmosphere welcoming and allowed guests to... More

Staff: Staff were friendly and they were very helpful when ever I made an enquiry. There are always a lot of staff in the hostel and some of them are free to have a chat about anything you like. Location: The location is great. Buses run along Fairfax avenue where this hostel is located and this hostel provides maps, and... More

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

we arrived to a stench of smoke and urine. The room wasn't ready when we arrived but no one told us they just gave us keys so when we went to the room there was two cleaners eating lunch in there and pools of water on the ground. When we returned to the room it was hot, we turned on... 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
