    I couldn't recommend STAY OPEN in Venice Beach enough! I had a last minute trip change, and whilst looking for reasonably priced accommodation, I found STAY OPEN. This place was honestly incredible. The hostel is only 10 beds, which made it really intimate where you could mingle with the other guests easily. The facilities were phenomenal, and the location was perfectly situated in Venice right on the beach. It was only a short stroll to food, bars and everything Santa Monica has to offer.

    I was exploring the West Coast, visiting friends out there I hadn’t seen in years, and it was my first time ever in LA. I needed a spot where I could work remotely comfortably during the week before I could go visit my friends. I picked this beautiful space for digital nomads while enjoying beach vibes and was able recharge my introvert self while STAYING OPEN to opportunities to meet new people. SO LOVELY. I wish I could write a longer review on here lol. I will add more in depth on Google. :)

    Honestly had such a wonderful time here! Staff was super friendly and helpful. This place is homey, the beds are sooo comfy I didn’t wanna get out. The pod has a privacy curtain and a little closable door. You’re literally right next to the beach and a walks away from the Santa Monica pier! They have bikes there you can use as well. I highly recommend you stay here. I would definitely stay there again! You can also check your bags for the day after checking out which was super convenient!

    Hands down the best hostel I have encountered! Great location steps from the beach. Clean and secure. Friendly environment with a homey feel. I enjoyed having my own private space in my pod, while I also felt comfortable socializing in the public spaces. The hosts had some good recommendations on places to eat and things to do.

    Stayed at Stay Open for about a week, and was extremely happy with the location, staff and all the help given. Met some great people who i had some brilliant nights with. Andy and Jelena couldn’t be more helpful. Jacob helped plan our last night out, so super grateful to the whole team

    I absolutely LOVED my stay. The beds were so comfortable, all of the facilities were clean and comfortable. The view and location is amazing! It feels more like you’re staying at a friends place rather than a backpackers. Such a warm and homey feel. Loved it, will be back for sure!

    When you first come in, you can enter via a keycard or the app. Checkout is easy, just put your linens in the basket and your good to go. I had enough space to my belongings away, and they also have a small storage spot to put your valuables away with your own code if needed. Kitchen seemed fully equipped, and you have your own spot for food and snacks. They also have a tiny room for an important call if you need a quiet spot. My bed pod was super comfortable, comes with a white noise speaker if you need

    Wonderful location on the Venice boardwalk. Trendy interior and comfortable beds. Friendly travellers. Has a feeling of a luxurious villa on the beach. Staff is friendly and attentive to all questions. A perfect get away when you’re done with Hollywood and Downtown. Amazing rooftop for morning coffees/ sunset drinks. Close to the bus that takes you Downtown and Santa Monica/Malibu.

    They deserve to be rated 10/10 IF they change 1 thing. Beware: they charge $30 for luggage storage before you check in. I wanted to drop my luggage 2 hours before, they wanted to charge. They also charge if you want to hang around after 11am check out. 2 other mates were annoyed too. Other than that, This is the Best Hostel I have stayed at. Pods are great! The atmosphere and vibe is amazing. Bathrooms best I have seen. View from the top floor looking at the beach is Awesome. Must visit place!
