Firstly when I arrived I was charged quite a bit more than it stated on the banana bungalow website when I booked. Also two different workers gave us two different price quotes it's as if they were just making up prices. Then the worker who checked us in explained that one of the beds would need a blanket as it... More

Stayed in the private room with my wife. A bit small room but comes with a wardrobe cabinet. The hostel is located 2 blocks beyond Hollywood & Vine station, which makes it a mile plus walk to the main Hollywood Boulevard (my last stay was at USA hostel, which was much closer). The hostel overall is pretty big and has... More

Stayed here with a friend for two nights in June in an 8 bed en-suite room. Staff were helpful and friendly. Bathroom facilities weren't too fancy but was as clean as you would expect for a hostel. We stayed in room 214 which was two bedrooms made up of 2 bunk beds in each room - this was lovely as... More

I already had gotten a room at the Banana Bungalow in West, however this one is the best. The last time that i stayed at the hostel with my friends was great! Very close to everything and they have a nice staff,

Staff was really rude when I asked the manager she was busy... Check in time is 3pm, I tried to check in... More

I was here for two nights in April (22th to 24th) and I loved it. I was there with two friends in a private room. We booked a budget one and got one with kitchen. The Breakfast offers a lot of different things. The location is really good because you can walk to the walk of fame. There you can... More

An ideal place for people on a budget. We stopped here for 4 nights and would definitely go back if we were ever in Hollywood again. We had a private room which had its own bathroom and kitchen. The room was clean, had a daily maid service and also had cable tv which was great to just relax in the... More

Cannot speak highly enough of this hostel. Great location to see all the main attractions. Added bonus is the hostel offers pick up and drop off to Universal Studios throughout the week. We had a car and there was secure parking and it was easy to navigate around Hollywood. Also the hostel has great offers on meals( we had lasagne... More

Free dinner and drinks from at 8pm as long as available ! I love the full hawaiian style breakfeast outside area ! Drawback is that we had to leave the car keys at the reception when parked at the hostel since they park them all closed to each other blocking any use in a spontaneous way ! Breakfeast of course...

Arriving late we were desperate to get checked in and showered! When we found the place the receptionist could not find our booking and was relatively dismissing about the situation saying 'If you're not on the system, too-da-loo'. However, once he had seen our booking confirmation he was extremely accommodating giving us a private double room with bathroom and kitchen... 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.
