“So much fun!”
Reviewed April 17, 2005

I had the greatest time at the Bungalow. I was travelling alone, and about 10 mins after arriving, i was already asked to join the party on the beach! If you are looking for somewhere quiet, this is not it. But if you are looking for a great party and some super fun people, this is the place to go. I will be back as soon as i can!

This has definetly been my favourite hostel in the US. I just can't leave. 1 week turned into 6 weeks! The parties they throw here are fantastic....no more jungle juice. Living on the beach can not be beaten. Banana Bungalow thank you....I will be back!

this place is OK. if your lookin for somewhere to sleep then it does the job. the rooms are cramped but what do you want when the beach is 10 steps from your room. there are alot of irish there is lots of cliques, quite hard to get to know people straight away, you just have to make an extra effort if your on your own. me personally, i didnt enjoy my time as much as the other hostels i stayed in. but if your lookin to hit the beach then i guess you'll like it. what i will say though... really nice staff and lovely home cooked meal from glen!!!
