This place is great for a few days in LA. They offer shuttles, tours and dinner depending on the day for free or super cheap! Staff are great, really helpful and friendly. Rooms are basic but I can't complain. The price is perfect for the value!

We stayed here 4 nights as our Airbnb cancelled on us. This place is probably great if you're young and looking to do the arranged activities and nights out etc. However for us, it was just very over priced for a bunk bed in a dingy little room! On a positive note, the location was great, staff were friendly &... More

The location is perfect, just a short 15min walk to the Grove Theartre and Whole foods, as it is right on Fairfax Ave. The shopping around is on point, Crooks and Castle and Diamond Supply is just on the next block. Plenty of little convenience stores around for..CHEAP ALCOHOL! $25 for a 700ml Grey Goose. Staff are great, and so... More

First time in a hostel so chose my own with ensuite. The hostel experience was so good i won't stay anywhere else now. Free breakfast, all day coffee/tea, lots of free nights, absolutely safe with 24 hr security. Fun place to be with large social areas. It's a must

If your in to spending a lot of time in the hostel with groups of people then this will be perfect for you. They do bar crawls and karaoke nights and all sorts with their sister hostel in central Hollywood. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the bathrooms are also clean and functional. There are also lockers in the... More

I am generally particularly positive about the Banana Bungalow hostels, I already stayed in the one on Maui and I simply had a blast! Cool, urban atmosphere with people playing music, table tennis or other communal games. Super helpful and friendly staff. You have free Wifi everywhere in the hostel, a free breakfast ist provided, the rooms and bathrooms are... More

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
