Also called Bannana Bungalow. Nice location, a little down on Hollywood Blvd but in walking distance to everything. Safeish location. You have to walk past 2 car yards to get there but I never felt unsafe walking at night. Hostel was clean and staff were friendly. The free breakfast was a plus & cheap dinners too !

This place is amazing for what it is. We paid under $100 per night for private accommodation which came with a full kitchen! On Hollywood Boulevarde no less!!! There are also dorm roooms at very reasonable prices.
Breakfast is included and involves cereal, toast and tea/coffee. Access is secure which increases a sense of security and parking is complimentary.
The hotel offers entertainment, tours and cheap meals and we even had free tacos one night!
there is free wifi, use of computers, baby- foot, table tennis and a basketball hoop. Our room had interesting artwork, cable tv and a/c.
this is a very relaxed place to be that attracts single and family travellers from around the world. I would definately come back.

This was a cool little hostel in hollywood that did just fine for our short stay in LA. We had a 6 bed mix dorm that was actually pretty good because each room has it own washroom and kitchen, pretty rare in the hostel universe, it meant you could shop and cook your own meals to save money for other fun activities. The downside, this hostel is a little bit off the main strip and in the dodgier bit of hollywood blvd. Also, as it is a hostel there are lot of younger people mingling about at night in the courtyard which was pretty noisy, if you want to sleep early this is not the place for you. The staff were friendly and the event staff overly so, we tried to go on one of the 'booze cruises' but it was cancelled the night we signed up for.

Room Tip: The thai place next door, open late and pretty decent.

A small, safe, fun place to be while staying in LA. I love the back breakfast area/tiki garden, and the fact that there are plenty of places within the hotel to sit outside and chat with people or work (I do both). Being around people who are traveling is always a pleasure and stories abound. The whole staff is great, parking is free *and* I never have to pack a lot because I do my laundry right there - the washing powder from the front deck is great, nice detail to have on hand. It's close to a nice walk down Hollywood Blvd. and the stars, and it right near a 101 freeway exit so getting around is a dream. It's a place full of young travelers and sure there are karaoke, music and people drink but there's also a ping pong table (that was always being used) and a movie room. Way too much good stuff that outweighs any party noise - which promptly stops at a certain hour. If you like less noise then select a room close to the garden/breakfast area. There isn't music until midnight every night - there are nights when outside activities are organized and everyone leaves. Love the Vibe and will always return.

Room Tip: Choose a premium private - kitchen and fridge and queen bed. Ask the staff about whether the cleanin...

I stayed at this hostel with my boyfriend at the end of may. Staff were lovely, apartments were a really good size with a good kitchen & nice bathroom. Free breakfast is amazing. Not too far a walk to Hollywood boulevard . Only down side is the music which stays on until midnight every day

Great place for YOUNG people who like to drink. Drinking events every night. Music bumping till 12 pm every night. Awesome breakfast for free every day. Staff VERY nice and very helpful. Found two cockroaches in our room but we thought the place was very clean other than that. For 80$ish a night I would stay there again for sure

Room Tip: Private room was great had own bathroom and large bed
