Banana Bungalow Hollywood
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We stayed for 3 nights in December and the heating wasn't working in our room. We reported it and were told someone would have a look at it but it still didn't work. Breakfast was ok and the staff were friendly. Great location on Hollywood Boulevard, close to the metro for exploring LA.

This place was really ruined by the group of people that were there for me! The location was decent the rooms were ok. The staff not so good or helpful the bar crawl wasn't what I hope for. Loud English Juvenile's should be banded from drinking in group's.

Great place where to stay in LA, located in hollywood bvd!
I stayed here for one night with a friend, and for only 85 dollars we had a private bedroom (1 bed queen-size) with private bathroom! Quite small but very clean confortable, provided with fridge, microwave. Furthermore the parking and the very nice breakfast were included! Fast wifi.
The best feature, anyway, is the staff: everyone was so nice and efficient, also for information about the city.
And the guest were all young and friendly!
Definitely the best place to stay in LA, if you are young and look for a cheap but confortable accomodation!

Nice place to go,near to almost everything you need to see.
Its seam alot like a party place for young traveler!The people there are nice,nice staff and its the place if you want to meet new people.The only bad part of it is the breakfast is really simple there would be great if there was orange juice...And its noisy until 11h30 p.m(see my only bad comment on this hotel is the breakfast quite stupid haha).The area is safe,so no worry about it!
Cheap hostel to go!

We stayed there for 2 nights and it was awesome. They have party there, the location is fantastic and everything is clean and the staff nice.

Although, I would have preferred a female only dorm, it was fine and I really enjoyed my stay there!

This was our first experience ever in a hostel and wow what a great one! Ever since we always compare to it and recommend it to others.

Staff were really nice and seemed to enjoy working there. great activities and party all the time, great food for cheap price like 5$

ambiance is really nice full of people from all around the world ( mostly from australia when we were there) who always want to meet new people.

Location is a must , 15min walk from center of hollywood. 30min walk from hollywood sign trail everything is near. Plus the view from the balcony is so nice, hollywood sign right in front of you. You also see the court where everybody is chilling so it´s a nice ambiance.

Really this is the best place ever. Looking forward to come back.

I stayed 8 days, and it was just freaking awesome. I might have stayed a little bit too much, but every night there was something to do, and I never thought I'd be able to get so much stuff included within the $30/night. Free breakfast, and free dinner/drinks some days were just absolutely incredible.
