Property Description

Explore the bohemian shops and stalls along the boardwalk, visit Muscle Beach for a work out or take a bike for a ride up to Santa Monica; you will love SoCal beach vibe and our huge backyard!

In the other direction of PodShare Venice, you can walk to Abbot Kinney Blvd which is a hip, lively street filled with boutique stores, delicious restaurants and bars. Take a look at the map of our favorite eateries that will be on your bed, along with a clean towel.

    I loved this hostel! The pods were sturdy and comfortable and everyone there was super fun. The showers are clean and well stocked with shampoo ,conditioner bodywash etc. The kitchen had everything I needed. Would definitely stay again!

    Great place to stay! Staff are amazing and helpful. The property has literally everything you need, including things like shower amenities and extra food items, so no worries if you’ve forgotten anything. Love the pods and how private they feel even though it’s a shared area. Awesome having access to the bikes as they’re there best way to get around :)

    I think the Podshare is a great place to stay and I'm glad that i stayed there for 3 nights. The hostel is clean and staff is very friendly and helpful. There are great communal areas to meet people. Met loads of like-minded travelers and locals while staying here. Beds are very comfortable, nice AC at night and a TV for each bed. The style of living isn't for everyone however. And there were only 3 showers, but very nice showers. Already have booked this hostel again for next 2 trips to LA

    I had a nice day here which included a very desirable location and friendly staff. The bed was comfortable but the room in the evening was quite chilly, a thicker comforter this time of year would hit the spot. The ratio of beds to bathrooms is cumbersome.and I would prefer additional privacy with such.

    Great spot. The property felt very safe and secure. Excellent location next to the venice canals and just a short walk to the beach. I was able to park my car for free which was nice. There was a great kitchen to cook in with plenty of free items you could use. They were a little short on bathrooms, only 2 working toilets. Only 3 showers but I was up and in the shower at 7am and had no issue getting right in. I will say this is where things could have been cleaner The shower curtain was moldy

    It really depends what you’re looking for. If you’re simply looking for a place to sleep for a couple nights, it’s perfect. Only thing I found was the bathroom to be a little bit small for the amount of people, but everyone manages so it’s not that bad.

    The facility is much smaller than what it is in pictures displayed on the website. There are guests who smoke (e.g. cigarettes and cannabis) in the morning and through the late evening at both of the designated and common areas. I felt the heavy smell and it got me sick. The staff in the evening was helpful and friendly.

    I've stayed in pod style hostels around the world -all awesome except this one. The bunks are not built into a solid wall but rather fake wooden walls (in a barn) so basically every time someone walks on the wooden floor, gets into a bed etc. - the whole structure shakes. This woke me up a lot. The pods were also really dusty and dirty. The staff were not very helpful/informative. Theres quiet-time (lock-down) enforced from 10pm-10am so no only is there no vibe, but you're also not gonna sleep.

    Insecure & unsafe. A 6 foot tall fence is all that separates the outside to inside. No locked door/window, or key to fence. Just a 4 digit code which could be seen from the street by a bypasser. Told there’s no staff there from 2 am - 7 am. Decided not to sleep there & later asked for a refund. Told safety is a matter of perception & they considered it safe. Dom (staff) said if they had a window/door it could easily be broken so it's the same as a fence. Owner refused to speak to me or refund me
