I just love this place! I've stayed twice now on very different trips! I was first here in 2009 on a 3 month trip around the states. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm for a few nights and a private for a couple of nights. Both were great, I met some awesome girls and hung out with them a... More

This is definitely a hostel- rooms are very basic, bathrooms have plastic cups, shower tap didn't work very well (half came out the bath tap instead of shower). Staff were nice. Breakfast was provided (very basic - toast / packet oats / tea & coffee). Always had events on at night though we didn't go to any. Rooms are decently... More

Arriving at the hostel for check in we were greeted by a lady who came across as very rude. Our room was very basic and I felt it could have been cleaner than what it was. One problem was that loud music played until late in the middle of the hostel meaning it was difficult to sleep. I understand you... More

My husband and I stayed at this hostel a couple of years ago and decided to return this month. As before, the prices are rather high for a hostel but according to LA standards they're decent. The rooms are eccentric and bright but we had a room overlooking the tiki bar this time which was lovely. The hostel has friendly... More

The hostel itself is quite good for an older type building and they keep it quite clean most of the time. Having free breakfast was great and it had a nice variety. It was a great hostel to meet people with nice outdoor areas which allowed for a bit of roudiness in the evenings. Some staff were lovely, a girl... More

I've stayed in this hostel twice in a 5 year time period and stills being really good. This time we took a private room with friends with a total of 3 beds and it was way better than many hotels I've stayed in the past. Great clean room and bathroom, tv and cable. We had free dinner and free beers... More

I stayed at Banana Bungalow for 4 nights when I first arrived in USA. For what you pay for it's good value! Breakfast of 2 types cereal, milk, organic soy milk, hot drinks, toast, nutella, peanutbutter and jam. There is some kind of event on every night, most were not to my liking (I'm not the clubbing sort, especially as... More
