I loved Banana Bungalow! Three of us went into San Diego early before business meetings and decided to stay there and even though we were moving over to The Catamaran Resort, we didn't want to leave! It's so much more than drunken folks, truly. Yes, there's drinking but there were also plenty of folks who weren't getting drunk. We're women... More

Beware of 5 star reviews. If your idea of a good place to stay is hanging out with drunken English yobs, hobo's, drug addicts and waking up in filth.Then this is the place for you.Yeah they throw parties every night big deal.For the price your paying you expect a clean room and sheets.The room I was in looked like it...

this place was gross. like an adult day care with many guests apparently "living" on premises. being close to the beach was great, but I'd rather haved camped somewhere. room was old, ratty & filthy and sleeping was uncomfortable - hard beds and noise coming from all directions. constant party playground here...definitely not for those who want a relaxing place...

This place is great! They have parties everynight and you can meet people from all over the world. The staff, mostly from England are a bunch of crazy women. Haha! Dont get Traci started on their "Real Bacon". If you dont drink and are more of the "inside type", you might want to find someplace else. Will i be back?... More

I had the greatest time at the Bungalow. I was travelling alone, and about 10 mins after arriving, i was already asked to join the party on the beach! If you are looking for somewhere quiet, this is not it. But if you are looking for a great party and some super fun people, this is the place to go.... More

This has definetly been my favourite hostel in the US. I just can't leave. 1 week turned into 6 weeks! The parties they throw here are fantastic....no more jungle juice. Living on the beach can not be beaten. Banana Bungalow thank you....I will be back!
