We stayed two nights there and it was pretty good. Check-in was a bit messy and cold, not completely professional. But some staff members are really friendly and made our stay better. It looks like a party hostel with really young guests. I wouldn't recommend it to families. However noise doesn't stops too late so it's okay to sleep for...

Pros: Cheapish, breakfast, 24h reception, ensuite bathrooms. Cons: Very noisy til midnight, rooms are not acutally 6-8 bed dorms. They're 12 beds. Seperate in two rooms, but no door inbetween. Location is not that good, hollywood is done in one day and after that you have a long way to the beach/downtown

I didn't expect much for the price and location, so really "the vibe/banana bungalow" exceeded expectations. It's kind of a hostel/hotel, if I was younger and checking out the LA area on a budget, I would definitely stay here... the local tour schedule looked great... I'm just an old guy that wanted a cheap place to stay close the Fonda...

Stayed for two nights in a private double room with bathroom! Nice, comfortable stay, great and clean rooms with no issues! 5-10 mins to the walk of fame and metro stations. Would definitely stay again Thanks

I stayed 2 nights in the Banana Bungalow. It has a great location right on Hollywood Boulevard - about 30min walking distance to the Doldy Theatre. The hostel is nice and clean. Also, it has free parking (limited spots) which was why I chose it in the first place. If you don't feel like exploring L.A. you can just chill...

After reading several reviews I felt the need to say...don't lose sight of the fact that this is a Hostel. If you're looking for the Ritz-Carlton experience on a Motel 6 budget, you can forget about it. That being said, I had a really decent stay at the Banana Bungalow Hollywood. We stood here in a private room (with on-suite...

I would probably still recommend this hostel to others based on the price we paid for the location - it's in a really convenient place to visit everything in Hollywood! BUT based on our experience I really can't give it more than two. On our first night one of the guys in the room just got into bed with one...

For what you pay for (in terms of LA prices), it's pretty good. Good base for Hollywood and comfortable enough. Only problem was music that started outside window for breakfast from 7am? But still cheaper than anywhere else you'll find in LA

Travelled with a group of girls and we wanted accommodation which was right near the center of the strip - Banana Bungalow is the place to be! Located on Hollywood Boulevard, this hostel was the ideal stay for us. We went in April 2013 and the hotel assistant in the office, Jimmy, was soooo welcoming and friendly, he was the...

Not particularly impressed by this hostel. It has a American motel vibe with an inner, outdoor courtyard with the rooms a floor above overlooking the courtyard. There seemed to be food and music in the courtyard most evenings which was quite annoying when it went on late but is probably nice for those that are looking for that kind of...

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
