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...

I was taken aback when I saw my room, as we had to pass through another room to get there. The 6 person...

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...

My stay at Banana Bungalow was the perfect introduction to LA and the USA. The hostel is clean and basic with free breakfast by the way of cereal, toast and coffee amongst other things. The social atmosphere at this hostel was fantastic, with a very central common area and activities every night with enthusiastic staff running them! They even offered...

Pros: -West Hollywood is a great location if you're not wanting to be too far away from the tourist attractions. For the price you pay, it's a bargain. -On site parking is available on a...

Free food, free drinks, free entertainment and free rides to attractions made the experience great value for money. Good place to go if you want to make friends on your travels, activities create a pretty communal environment.
