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 dorm I was in was filthy. Another girl came in, and changed to a more expensive room and another came in and wanted to leave, but was very late at night. We later discovered that the one of the girls staying there had been there for 5 months, hence why there was clothes all over the floor and products, dirty underwear etc. on the bathroom floor.
I stayed two nights, and the location was actually excellent. Very easy to visit different parts of the city. I would be willing to give it a go again, simply because of the location. Don't know if I would stay in a dorm room again though. If needing a dorm room, I'd reccomend the Hollywood location.
This would have been an excellent place to stay if we weren't constantly worried about the dirty room.
