I LOVED it at Banana Bungalow West Hollywood. I was traveling alone but I met so many amazing other travelers and the staff was so great and friendly. There was so much free or cheap happenings and the atmosphere was great. I'm bit biased because this place become my WeHo home. The rooms were basic hostel rooms with bunk beads....

I stayed here with my partner for 6 days and was really happy that we had chosen to stay here. It is in a great location! Catch the 217 and be on the Walk of Fame in 20mins, walk 20mins to the Grove or get a bus to Santa Monica Beach. Was greeted and talked through what the hostel offers...

Yeahhh we weren't massive fans of LA, but this hostel more than made up for that. The room was great, it was cleaned every day and the bathroom was absolutely fine. The location in West Hollywood is a little out of the way but there's still things to do. I'd recommend The Grove mall a couple of blocks away and...

We arrived and the taxi took us to the wrong banana bungalow! No problem the staff arranged a free ride to the other hostel. Room was spacious and had a little balcony outside of it. Only issue was the vip tour company they use who had changed around their Disney times even after emailing to check. A bit annoying and...

Booked to stay here for 5 nights in a 3 bed private room. I wasn't expecting the ritz but the room felt pretty dirty and itchy. We were on the ground floor and couldn't open any windows or look outside. It was like a green prison cell. The sheets on the bed looked really old and stained. I mean how...

Stayed here for about 5 nights from memory, originally we thought we had booked the other banana bungalow but were pleasantly surprised we booked this one! We stayed in the large dorm room (about 14 beds/7 bunks) and were so impressed! Each bunk bed had a separating wall for a little privacy and the room also had a massive common...
