Everything about SameSun was perfect. However they don't have a very good communal area to meet people. I was only there for 3 days though so I didn't really get to experience any of the proper group activities.

I only stayed for a few hours but it was good. there was always a taxi cab nearby if needed. Right next to be beach and other facilities. A few "interesting" characters out and about but that didnt bother me at all. Good place to stay

I can't recommend this place highly enough! Great vibe and really easy to meet people. You can't beat the location and the staff were super friendly and helpful. If you're in LA, this is the place to stay!

All the good mood you can find in a hostel. Friendly people and very clean. Location is perfect if you're going to LA for something near the beach.

This was my first time staying at a hostel and I will never rent a hotel again!! The staff was warm and friendly just like the weather and my roommates ( I stayed at an all female room) were super dope. This place is right on the boardwalk just steps from the beach and the place is an excellent deal for the money

Really nice staff, they help create an awesome atmosphere. The hostel has a really chilled and fun vibe, great for those travelling alone with the organised activities and use of the common room. Right on the beach.

The staff are very helpful and cool. Location is awesome right on the beach. But in general it's very expensive for a hostel but I guess that's LA. Venice beach area seems to be more expensive than other parts of LA surprisingly even more so than Hollywood BLV.

Best location to stay in LA. Venice is awesome. Hostel is good. Nothing special, but we had no problem there. Staff is nice, bathrooms are clean, and bedroom as well.

Perfect location for Venice Beach, right on boardwalk. Unfortunately no atmosphere at all, way too small common room, bathrooms very unclean, no one participating in activities. Shame!

Thanks for the feedback. Our location cannot be beat, that's for sure. We have daily and nightly activities that we offer - hiking, beach volleyball, to all you can eat taco nights, which gather a lot of participants. Maybe it was an off day or everyone was tired out from the activity the day before.. Hope you enjoyed your time in Venice! Cheers, Sara - General Manager
