this place was gross. like an adult day care with many guests apparently "living" on premises. being close to the beach was great, but I'd rather haved camped somewhere. room was old, ratty & filthy and sleeping was uncomfortable - hard beds and noise coming from all directions. constant party playground here...definitely not for those who want a relaxing place to stay on vacation. the price brought us here, but we should have known better. save your money and stay somewhere else.

Stayed here for four nights at beginning of september, really cool hostel, as soon as we arrived we were invited to join the party....it was labour day....they were having a theme night.....everyone had painted themselves head to toe as a superhero! My boyfriend and i had a private room with our own private ensuite and everything was perfect, lovely and clean, brilliant shower and they even provided towels! This place is really a bit mad, a lot of the people there seem to have been living there forever. Location is excellent right on the beach, close to loads of bars and restaurants, very far from downtown but everything you need is right on the doorstep. Dont reccomend if you are the quiet type, parties happen here every single night and it gets pretty noisy, def reccomend it if you are up for a laugh esp if you are travelling with a large group of friends, it wasnt exactly the romantic getaway my boyfriend and i had in mind!!

This place is great! They have parties everynight and you can meet people from all over the world. The staff, mostly from England are a bunch of crazy women. Haha! Dont get Traci started on their "Real Bacon". If you dont drink and are more of the "inside type", you might want to find someplace else. Will i be back? Hell yeah. This place was great, met people from all across the world, and got to hang out with drunken Australian, English, and Swedish people etc. Jamie can plan great keg parties! -Niles Abbott

Hey young people!
San diego is a great place to stay, while you are in banana bungalow!!! This is the paradise! Imagine you are right on the beach, looking at the sunset, everything is so wonderful...
Also, beside beeing romantic, you can enjoy doing party all days, from the begining of the day till the end of the night...
I do not say that The Bungalow is a great place if you do not andle the noise, but if you want to make some new friends, enjoy the beach, and take some beers, well, the Banana bungalow id the dream place to stay!!!!
Just want to say Hi to all the staff, you are guys soo cool, stay like you all are!!
And, Matt, thaks for taking me out sailing, it as been a great experience... and i'll never forget this... and u!

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!
