Better hot water and pressure in the showers would have been good. Could never get a hot one no matter what time of day or night I took one.

Second stay here. In September the heat was insane and the lack of air con was a kick in the nuts. However, en-suite shower was alright, room was clean... it's a great place to stay. Perfect location. Everything you could want is in the area. Good hostel!

Staff we helpful and friendly. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm and was quite comfortable. Had our own bathroom. Lockers in dorm also and storage for bags if you check in early. Literally on Venice Beach Boardwalk so you walk straight out onto the strip. About 40 mins to Hollywood via taxi or uber but not much you can do. Kitchen was not too bad and breakfast provided was pretty decent: eggs, fruit, coffee and pancakes pretty good. Most certainly worth staying if you in town for a few days. Peace from AUS

Samesun Venice has an excellent location right in the center of Venice Beach. Security is good, facilities are nice. The private room I stayed in was clean and cozy. They had a limo night event which seemed pretty cool. They had some other events as well.

This place is legit ! I've had such good time staying there. Prime location, right in the middle of everything Venice has to offer. Its a small hostel but very cozy. Rooms are compact yet nice and clean. Always cool people chilling at the common area. Stuff was simply awesome, very chill and laidback people who may give you nice company, would play guitar with you and organize some cool activities. I will have nice memories about this spot. Cheers. Oleg

This hostel was AMAZING! It couldn't have a best location, the staff is awesome, they will have fun events every night, place is safe and entertaining, the place is clean, the beds are comfy...I even got an upgrade just because! They helped me book a bus to San Francisco, everything. They really care, and the will help you with everything you need, and they will be very honest with the information they give you. 100% RECOMMEND,,,,

Well located hostel. Nice Staff. Nice Breakfast. Rooms are alright. On the 2nd floor it might be a little noisy due to a bar that is located below. Very recomandable hostel!

Best location ever, right in front of the main beach in Venice. Clean facilities. Great atmosphere with the right activities for the place (Tuesday tacos and live music bar). For a quick trip to LA this hostel is the best.

The staff was cool and fun , they would try and bring you out nightly and would provide you with transportation. The hostle was pretty secure and had a 24 hour watch . Also maintained pretty well , and they would give you a reall breakfast . This hostel was really good 👍🏻
