Very cozy and very friendly staff. The hostel has a good location if you prefer to stay away from the beach. They arrange something at the hostel every night, comedy club with free burgers, peer pool etc. which gives a great opportunities to meet new people. Highly recommend!

Basically Hollywood has no centre so you cant stay central but this hostel is ok in distance terms. It is right near Canters Deli which is delicious and about 2 miles from Holly Blvd and would take us about half an hour to walk, in the heat, it was unbearable. You need uber or a car to get around otherwise... More

This hostel was convenient for seeing some of the Hollywood sights. Its main strength though was the pleasant courtyard, where each night we met new people. The hostel ran a fun trip to a club. Breakfast was decent. The only negative was the parking. Free parking for the hostel was limited and street parking was too. One morning we got... More

The rooms are clean, the staff are helpful, the Grove is walking distance away, free parking, free breakfast, free tea and coffee, a good mix of guests. Value for money. No complaints at all! Would recommend to all who want to see LA on a budget.

Banana Bungalow Hostels are very lively. This is one of the most active hostels I have been to. They have activities every night of the week. The locations are prime and close to tourist attractions. I stayed in the West Hollywood location in a budget dorm. The dorms were like any other hostel dorm i.e. bunk beds, lots of other... More
