    The Podshare community and option for long-term stay concept is really great and convenient, especially with access to all their LA locations. The facility has a lot to offer (green space with games/relaxation, conference room, computers, full kitchen, and nice bathroom facilities) and only a block away from the Venice Canals. If that were all, it would be a great stay — but the staff is what makes it. The night I arrived, they had a community pancake dinner and GOT watch party!

    Such an awesome place. I was stuck between going to a regular (ie cheaper) hostel and this, and am very glad I chose this. Would honestly love to live there for a bit, to be honest.

    I loved my stay at Podshare Venice. A welcoming, inclusive atmosphere, with great facilities - basketball court, hammocks in the garden, TV room, and a great open plan bunk design. Even though I was only there for two nights I felt part of a wider community there. I have no real complaints. Would recommend it to any solo / pair travellers, but perhaps large groups would prefer a “party” hostel. This place was civilised and pleasant, with all visitors respectful of personal space and quiet

    If you're looking for a slightly more mature place to stay, PodShare Venice is a great option! It's close to the beach, Abbot Kinney and the canals, and has cool facilities like a basketball court and attractive outdoor area. It has a friendly, social atmosphere, although the 10pm lights out policy (while understandable given the open plan layout) is a bit of a shame. But overall, I really enjoyed my stay and would happily book again.

    Great staff and atmosphere the location was great and the place just had a really cool vibe. My pod was very clean, however some of the public spaces such as the kitchen and bathroom areas could have been a little cleaner, but with high traffic this is to be expected. Overall would defiantly stay here again!

    Between the location and the facility, this has potential to be one of the best hostels ever. Unfortunately, it is not. The hostel itself and the pods are really cool and super cozy, but there aren’t curtains for privacy which is quite awkward. The amenities like the basketball court/ soccer nets are sick, but for being so overpriced you’d think they could afford balls that aren’t destroyed. My biggest gripe is that there were no events or effort to unite travelers or show them the city at all.

    I feel like the word “hostel” is a bit misleading. Especially for Europeans who are travelling .. this is definitely a shared accommodation/ living space. Not the open, friendly like-minded travellers hub like I’d expected. Especially when this place is featured so heavily on Hostel World
