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!

    Very happy and lucky that I got a top bunk! 👍 A few quibbles, however: When I arrived after 6 pm, my bed wasn't ready. Something about the laundry not being done yet? I was asked to come back in an hour. Also, there are only 2 toilets in the place for everyone. Not a super huge deal for the patient folk, but one toilet had no seat for the ladies/people needing to attend to business. Squat! One more item for those arriving after dark..This place is really challenging to find at night .

    Great place if you’re in Venice! Not on the beach but it’s about a 5 minute walk maybe less! Plus you can go to any of the other pod sites as you please! I like that checkout is 11am but they let you stay and hangout in the common areas (not in a pod) until 10pm so if you need to wait for a ride or something you’re not stranded! Will be staying here again!

    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.

    Advertised as a hostel but is a CO-LIVING space, similar but few differences. People living there from all sorts of backgrounds, definitely an eclectic mix of people. Bunks are kinda spacious especially on top. 3-4 showers and toilets which is not much for how many people there, but was manageable. Limited gated parking can be a hit or miss and may require shuffling cars around at times. Location is the main attraction, less than 15 min walk from beach and shops.

    Affordable accommodation in a prime location. Easy walk to Venice Beach. Open layout can get a little noisy at night but earplugs are available. Showers and bathrooms are small and awkward but clean.

    I realized Venice beach is all potheads and free spirits but I didn’t expect the experience I got. The place smelled like pot the whole time I was there. I almost left the first night to go somewhere else because I didn’t feel secure. I stayed two nights and decided to tough it out on last night. The locker was small. I didn’t trust anybody there at first. Everything was so open. Know what you are getting when you book. Toilets were so small and not enough stalls. Staff were nice. Place was chil
