This place is cool, it's an old motel with drive in car parking! It's worth noting that this place is definitely all about the fun and partying! I stayed here as I am a rollercoaster enthusiast and was heading to the theme parks. This place is right in Hollywood boulevard and close to the subway. First thing to cover off... More

Banana Bungalow is slightly further out of Hollywood Boulevard however it is walkable. The hostel provided transport for different tourist locations on specific days free of charge. Breakfast is included (cereal/toast/tea/coffee) but they should have fruit every day not just sometimes. The beds are not comfy, very squeeky, move about and not great to sleep on. The air conditioning is... More

I spent a lot time in a lot of hostels. This one was clearly the worst I've been to yet. The payment process: dubios; they didn't even want to give us a receipt. The rooms: dirty as sh * t!!! Extremely smelly and the water didn't go down the drain of the bathtub. Wifi: Didn't work in the room. Sleep... More

We booked this hostel as travellers not backpackers, would be fantastic for actual back packers as the facilities and events are great! For just travellers i wouldn't recommend. Staff were really friendly. Tip: once your there do not walk right!!! Head left into hollywood.

Not the place if you're looking for peace and quiet. Lots of partying till late in the night. A bit inconsiderate to not have all smoking areas close to each other, meaning that non-smokers get second-hand smoke throughout the hostel. Chair and table weren't clean, but linens were okay, and bathroom was clean. Microwave in the room was a bonus!... More

Room - was not the best I had in the US, but was sufficient. No real complaints. Location - I thought the location was ideal. Getting transport to and from the hostel was quite easy Atmosphere - great events and pubcrawls. The people who were organising the events were lovely, which added to the atmosphere

We loved our time in LA here, sure it's a lot at first for a dorm room but they had free shuttles to a lot of attractions (driven by a honey) and they organised free meals and drinks in the evenings - I drank my money back in vodka cranberrys. The rooms were good quality and clean too and the... More

The hostel itself is one of the coolest I´ve ever been so far! Staff were very attentive, and having the parking inside is a great point. Rooms used to be motel rooms, so they are big, including toilet and kitchen. It is within walking distance from the touristic section of Hollywood Blvd, so no need to take the car to... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
