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

The first time we stayed there in a private room which wasn't too bad. It was clean and comfortable. The next time round we stayed in a 6bed dorm that had another room attached to it with four beds and their only access was through our room. The tap in the bathroom was always leaky and two of the men... More

We specifically stayed here as we wanted to meet other people and get the social vibes going for our first overseas adventure together. This place does try to get the energy going with free events like comedy nights, bbqs, ping pong competitions and cheap 'tipsy tours'. The unfortunate thing is that it's like a ghost town. Everyone keeps to themselves,... More

I stayed here with a friend for a couple of nights. We found it was dirty and cluttered. Some of the staff were helpful others seemed to lack interest. The breakfast left much to be desired and the location is a fair distance from anything of interest. We wouldn't stay here again.

We arrived at the Banana Bungalow in West Hollywood on April 8th after a very long and hungover flight from NYC :) The staff at the bungalow are fantastic. We were giving keys straight away and check in was easy. Myself and a friend travelling in our group had stayed here before and loved it, and it didn't disappoint the... More
