I think we'd planned to stay at Banana Bungalow for just a couple of nights. That quickly turned into several visits over a three week period! My friend and I loved Banana Bungalow so much that we kept returning (and extending). Why was it so great? Well, the facilities are pretty good- fast wifi, little gym area, clean rooms with...

Staying at Banana Bungalow West Hollywood was one of the best experiences I had traveling. The dorms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast is really good and they have variety. The staff is really cool and helpful. They offer a bunch of activities, many are FREE which is awesome! Thumbs up for the bungalow at West Hollywood.

This was a really rough stay, I stayed in a private room and for 84USD a night I'd really hesitate to complain. A lot of the issues have already been discussed in other reviews but I do want to point out I usually ignore reviews that complain about noise because I can sleep with a ton of background noise but...

The hostel seemed great online and exactly what we were looking for with social outings planned nightly, a kitchen, 6 per room, washing facilities and wifi - not to mention the location. We got there on a wet day with our clothes soaked and wanted a hot shower to find there was NO hot water. We then found our 6...

I chose this hostel as it was a convenient 10 minute walk to CBS Television studios where I was attending a taping of a game show. I booked the cheapest dorm they had ($25) which was in a 18 person dorm, but upgraded for an additional $3 to a smaller room when I found out they did not have any...

Stayed at Banana Bungalow West Hollywood, as I had stayed at the Hollywood location before, and the stay was fine. The front staff weren't what you would call rude, but they weren't friendly or particullarly accomodating either. I was taken aback when I saw my room, as we had to pass through another room to get there. The 6 person...

A wonderful week in LA begins with a safe, clean home base. Banana Bungalow Fairfax was great value for the money. Easy location, access to many bus lines for Venice, downtown, etc. Walking distances to food, shopping very favorable. Clean and safe, with a great kitchen, continental breakfast, and many activities - take advantage of the shuttle/parties to their sister...

This was my fourth stay at the Banana Bungalow and it just keeps getting better. This time I stayed in a private room with two friends. The place is spacious, clean and has everything you need for a short stay in an excellent location! Don't pay crazy prices to stay in expensive hotel in the area! I'm in my 30's...
