we had an amazing time at this hostel! such a chilled out atmosphere around there. The staff were lovely and were able to help us with any question we had! I feel that the hostel match people well as we were a group of 5 ladies and in a room of 6 and were met with two other British ladies... More

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

First of all let me say when you book into a hostel you know you are not getting 5 star treatment, get this part straight before we go any further. I arrived at the Banana Bungalow quite late at night after a 1w hour flight only to find out our reservations were at the other location. The guy on reception... More

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.

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,

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.
