Hostelworld says

This is Venice Beach, guys! So you are going to need somewhere suitably eclectic and energetic to stay if you are going to experience it right. This is that place. Sitting right on the boardwalk, the view over the Pacific Ocean in front is, frankly, to die for. What's more, nightly activities make it easy to meet new people - perfect for solo travellers. You can arrange trips to all the attractions around LA, like Universal Studios and Disneyland, from the desk.

Property Description

The beach, a bar and beautiful views are what you get when you stay with us! Located directly on the Venice Beach Boardwalk and close to LAX, we are the best and most convenient spot for exploring LA's beaches and beyond!

Iconic Venice Beach is world renown and we're right in the heart of it. Many of our dorms and privates have a full or partial ocean view, but you can also just walk out the door and be on the beach in 30 seconds.

And after you've had a day of sunning, swimming or just people watching, come hang out in our Surfside Bar & Grill, with our guests getting to enjoy happy hour drink prices all day.

We've something happening daily with Trivia Night, Open Mic and live bands in the bar, as well as a limo tour and other activities.

And if hanging at the beach is not enough, our knowledgeable local staff can fill you in on what to do both at the beach and in L.A. We're surrounded by places to shop, eat and relax and are just a short bike ride or walk from most of the sites you'll know from the movies including Muscle Beach, our famous Venice Skate Park and the Santa Monica Pier.

In addition our guests also get:

-Complimentary breakfast that includes eggs, fresh fruit, baked goods, coffee/tea and fruit juice
-Central air conditioning
- Free luggage storage
-Fast and free wifi
-Guest kitchen
-Luggage lockers for each dorm guest
-Light and shelf on each dorm bed

    A really great hostel with awesome amenities and a very friendly staff. Didn't have the breakfast but the spread looked wonderful. We had an incredibly rude guest in our room (went to the toilet with the door open, didn't flush and left pee on the seat, etc), and without us bringing it up the staff asked about our stay and ensured us that that type of guest is not in line with their policies. I felt like they went above and beyond with their recommendations and I would definitely stay here again

    Great place to stay at. Location is amazing. Can't ask for a better location. Rooms of 6 do get warm during the night. Bathrooms/showers busy and aren't the cleanest. Evening Activities are fun! Would stay here again.

    Great location and you can get happy hour at the bar downstairs all day. Right on Venice Beach with access to parking nearby. 30-40 minute walk to Santa Monica beach Security to get into the building is good however there are only small lockers in the rooms. Clean and tidy throughout People have commented about lack of bathrooms on floors but we had one in our room which would explain why you don’t need loads on each floor

    Only stayed for 1 night. The locations was wicked and the place was clean and safe. Would've loved to stay longer and get to know fellow travelers. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

    Hostel was in a great location with Venice Beach just outside the door. The hostel is very secure with key cards and lockers for your things. I would recommend booking a room with a bathroom included as there are only 2 bathrooms on each for (2 floors) so if you don't have a bathroom in your room, it can take some time to use a bathroom (either toilet or shower). There may be a few characters outside at night but the hostel is super secure so I was never concerned about this.

    Hostel is in very good location for beach and cafes/bars along the beach front. 4 bed dorm was a little small for 4 people, but beds were fine and en-suite great. Kitchen area was nice and free breakfast is a nice touch 👍 The bar downstairs was great, highly recommend Wednesday night open mic! Staff friendly and very helpful, WiFi was good. Rooms could be cleaner imo and the lounge area and kitchen are again a bit small.

    Very Good

    16 Apr 2019
    The staff was super nice, they let us drop our bags before 3pm (check in time) and were always here to answer our questions. It is located in a pretty central place, there were a lot of restaurants near, the beach really close by and many electric scooters to rent to go around Venice. The only problem is that there aren't a lot of showers and toilets but usually if one is occupied the other one is free. I also had stains on my sheets which wasn't really nice. But overall, I recommend the hostel!

    Very Good

    The hostel has great location - can't beat that for the price. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm, the bedding is comfortable. Kitchen is adequate, they have hairdryers, irons, etc. However, there is a serious shortage of bathrooms - just 2 per floor; to make matters worse, the toilets and showers are together, so if someone is taking a shower, and you just got to pee, it's a long wait (especially in the mornings)!! Staff is just okay, not super friendly as in other hostels I've traveled to globally.

    The bathrooms are very limited, more so because they are combined toilet and showers. one has to keep waiting for a bath or loo. also no basic toiletries like shower soap and shampoo was provided in the shower area which was a pain.

Samesun Venice Beach says

We are the only hostel right on and right in the heart of Venice Beach. Our fun and social environment reflects this iconic California neighborhood which is quite possibly the best place in Los Angeles. Wake up to ocean views in our en suite rooms and enjoy all that Southern California has to offer while staying with us.
