Great location right next to the Venice Beach boardwalk. Staff was cool. Would stay again.


In love with the staff and locals. I'll be back soon!


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.


Great hostel. Best location and heaps to do in the area. The staff are freaking awesome and keep the vibe going around the place - especially thanks to Jordan for the sick skating lessons on the boardwalk. Already planning to come back here ASAP.


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


Fairly basic hostel with a great location (20m away from the beach). Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were comfortable - the common area is comfortable but if you're looking to socialise the bars outside are really the best place.


lovely happy staff, always ready to advise and support. The location is one of the best.

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!




Chris at the samesun made the stay great. Good times and the location.


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.

My first time at a hostel and it's exceeded my expectations! This place is awesome!


Great location! Great atmosphere and very clean! The place to be when visiting Venice beach or Santa Monica!


Stayed in a 4 bed with an ensuite and it was amazingly clean! Great location!


Great location by the beach! Would definitely come back!


Great locatio, excellent staff


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

Awesome Hostel. Great facilities and helpful staff. Could not have asked for a better location.


Great hostel in excellent location. Very helpful staff. Wifi reception was a little average. Bathroom facilities were great.


Very good one. Remember a little bit some hostels from Europe. Very good location
