Lovely staff! And good location!


80%

The hostel is in a really good location, we just found our room to be extremely stuffy with no fresh air and the common room is tiny which makes it difficult to hang out in to meet other people staying at the hostel. And with no wifi in the rooms the common room was often crowded with no where to sit.

The atmosphere was great in the common room however no hot water at all and the bathrooms were not the cleanest. Still good to be right on the beach though

Awesome location, had a perfect view of the beach from my room. Staff were hit and miss with regards to activities, the rooms were cleaned daily and to a good standard. Overall a good a good place to stay as long as you have done washing before hand as the hostel doesn't have laundry facilities.

Despite the location it's not worth the money. Next time in LA I'll book another place.

Thank you for the feedback. Sorry to hear that the hostel wasn't a good fit for you. Hopefully you were still able to enjoy LA and take advantage of what we offer - daily and nightly activities, free breakfast, wifi and helpful staff. Cheers and safe travels, Sara General Manager

I had a great time at the Samesun Venice beach Hostel & I recommend it to everyone! The staff was very helpfull & friendly !! The location was excellent ! Everything you need was at a walking distance. It was easy to get around the city by public transportation ! I will definitely come back !! ;)

Great location, clean rooms and toilets would stay again! But a minus for the uncomfy beds could feel the steal springs through the mattress

This hostel is in an awesome location and the staff are super friendly. The showers and wifi here are THE WORST though (no hot water at any time of day, the wifi works in 1 specific corner of a hallway - which sucks if you're trying to book more travel etc, as its hard to know if something is confirmed when the wifi drops out mid-transaction). However, the place is clean, the breakfast is decent and everything in Venice Beach is at your doorstep

I thought the staff was ok but they never answered my questions or request right away. I always had to insist. I really enjoyed my private room with tv, fridge and an amazing view of venice beach.

Good to stay in the beach and make friends. Not so clean but rooms have its own bathroom and it has an easy access to town if you have a car. Great free parking spots through the night

Thank you for the feedback. We started upgrading our wifi last week, and the project should be completed very shortly. It will help with making wifi accessible all throughout the hostel. Cheers and safe travels. Sara, General Manager

I arrived in the hostel right after having landed in LA after a long trip from London, and I could not be better welcomed! Greg explained me everything there was to know about the place and the activities organized by the hostel. Immediately after I got to my dorm, I was invited to go out for drinks and playing pool and met very cool people! I even got a free surf lesson during my stay by a british guy. Just if you have a car, this is not the easiest place to get free parking.

Given bad directions to the hostel as instructed on this site. Waited at the bus stop for 45 minutes before asking a bus driver if the bus was still running. Took a taxi (30 dollars) as the bus had stopped and received an apathetic apology. Other staff were very helpful.
