1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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

So this was our third hostel in the USA, so by now we had a good idea of how things worked and what to expect. Upon arrival, we were checked in very quickly by the girl on the desk. She gave us towels, bedding and keys and pointed us in the direction of our room. The lift was broken so... More

I stayed in a private room with full bathroom. I thought the price was very reasonable. I am a little bit of a yuppy so I was skeptical at first but it was pretty decent. We mainly just slept there and I thought it was worth the price.

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
