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, favorite places in Venice, or sort you out for a surfing lesson or tour. And you can join our own weekly activities including Taco Tuesday, our Venice favorites bar crawl and our limo 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.

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

- Intimate lounge

- Laundry service

So grab a bike, board or wave and come chill with us in the California setting you've always dreamed of! View House Rules

    This hostel has the most perfect Location to visit VENICE BEACH. You are literally Right there and can walk everywhere. To get to the Hostel you have to climb some steps to the first Floor where the Rezeption, kitchen, lounge and also a couple Rooms are. I have used our ensuite but also the hallway bathrooms and both was really clean. They also lend you hair dryers and towels if needed for your stay. I loved how everybody was so nice and we really had a great time . I would totally come again

    It was a lovely place to stay. I watched the sun set over the ocean from the room's huge window after a really fun, if not so successful, attempt at surfing. You can rent boards right next door! The employees were all very friendly, the room and building were clean and secure. Perfect for a little solo trip to the beach!

    Super clean and very secure made me feel good in a edgy area of somewhat homeless nomads. Bicycle rentals next door. Met travelers from all over. Staff friendly and helpful with info and WiFi. Super free breakfast

    Incredible place to stay on a budget while traveling. The location is great, right next to the beach, and has the bus stop to go to/from the airport a short 4 minute walk away. The room and restroom were clean, and the staff was very attentive and friendly. For the location and price, this is truly a great hostel to stay at. I think the only thing that disappointed me was the breakfast -- not a lot of options and nothing that could really fill you.

    Great experience, very clean environment and friendly staff, perfect location to go exploring LA. You will find free street parking 5mins walk from the hostel and you will be sleeping very close to the beach.

    The room I stayed in was very dungeon like and had no natural light. The room was not well cleaned and there was noticeable hair on the bedside table. This was topped off by the ripped towel i was given. I would not say the staff were warm and friendly either, with no real attempts made at making conversation- other than when they wanted you out of an area, or when it was time to hand over cash. The breakfast was acceptable, but why cut bagels into four quarters?! So awkward to toast.

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.
