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.

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

    The location is great, it’s literally a few feet away from the famous Venice sign. If you get to stay on the third floor, you will be able to see the beach and all the people skating, walking, and shopping. This was a great place.

    Absolutely so thankful that I stayed at the Samesun Venice Beach Hostel! It was truly amazing and it served as the foreground of the best experiences of my life, though 99% of them were had outside the hostel the environment inside of it was exactly what I needed to have a phenomenal trip. Thank you Samesun!

    I can't wait to stay here again. After the beach closes at night, the street musicians downstairs on the boardwalk sound like dreamy lullabies up in your dorm. Someone was always at the front desk and they were all so friendly and welcoming. Sooo much good food right outside Samesun's door on the boardwalk.

    The location of this hostel was amazing! My friends and I got a room with a window looking out to the beach and board walk! It was so nice! Just by looking out the window you felt like you were in the middle of everything! The air conditioner in the room was amazing as well! I will say a lot of homeless people hang out around the area in front which is a little uncomfortable but all in all it was a good stay! Thanks!

    . The property is literally steps away from Venice Beach and only $40 per night. However, it was definitely a bit sketchy. I reserved a bed for 3 nights on the second floor. When I got there two of the four beds were empty and the other bed available clearly belonged to someone who was actually living in the room. The amount of stuff under and on that bed as well as in the closet clearly indicated a stay far longer than 2 weeks. Good news is that I never saw this person and had total privacy.

    The staff here & the place inside are great. The location of Venice past 6-7pm is kinda obscure & maybe a little dangerous. I saw homeless & other people whom I was a little afraid might rob me actually. Another issue was the rooms. They weren’t up to par with cleanliness, smelled like feet where I stayed & I happened to room with a woman in her 40s who would talk loud, make noise & was kinda weird. I’d rate this a 5/10.

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.
