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

Located directly on the world famous Venice Beach Boardwalk and close to LAX, we are the best and most convenient spot for exploring LA's beaches and beyond. Many of our dorms and privates have a full or partial ocean view, and you can also just walk out the door and be on the beach in 30 seconds.

After you've had a day of sunning, swimming or just people watching, come hang out in our newly renovated lounge to swap stories or just kick back. Our friendly and local staff will clue you in on the best happy hours and favorite places in Venice, or sort you out for a surfing lesson or tour.

If you need a break from the sun and sand, 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, the famous Venice Skate Park and the Santa Monica Pier.

So grab a bike, board or wave and come chill with us in California! View House Rules

    Great place near Venice beach, walking distance. Can be loud at night due to pubs nearby, but that's expected of Venice!

    Location was great. Area may seem sketch but is safe. As a solo traveler I always appreciate communal space and feel the space did not do enough to bring people together; however I would stay there again if visiting the area. Staff was helpful, not overly friendly but were chill.

    Hostel is right at the beach which you can see from the spacious lounge area. Overall ok place, some of the staff were demotivated and unfriendly, most were nice. Very few showers and bathrooms, expect to queue or get up early.

    This hostel is in a great location, right at the main entrance of the beach. The price is very reasonable, that includes a quick basic breakfast. However I think it is important to let guests know that it is very loud outside at all hours. Especially on weekends, as there is a bar right next door open until 2AM. Also there is no parking in the area. It is very stressful if you are driving. You have 5 mins to load out in the busy street and then hope you can find a spot somewhere in the area.

    If you don’t like sleeping then stay here. There is a nightclub directly below the hostel and the walls were shaking the music was that loud. Music stays on until 2am. They should really disclose this to guests. Good if you’re looking for a party.

    Not worth paying the amount for this hostel. We stayed in a private room which had no natural light, and was absolutely not worth what we payed. Too small. Too cramped. Payed hotel price for less than motel standard. Bathrooms also were not clean and what was advertised was not what we received.

    Our room was hot & muggy, us and our roomates agreed there had to something wrong with the AC but the front desk said there wasn't. They did give us a fan on the second night which made it a bit more livable. The noise level is insane, the beds were rusted (nearly cut myself), and the carpet is absolutely disgusting. Its central on Venice beach which is great but honestly thats the only redeeming quality.

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.
