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

    I was only able to stay one night, but i wish i could have stayed longer, and not during the pandemic when the common areas could be open. It was very clean and the staff were so friendly and helpful- i felt very welcome. My 4 person dorm (reduced to 2 for social distancing) overlooked the venice beach boardwalk- a really cool view. The location of the hostel is perfect. Walking right out of the hostel, there are so many food options and you can see the beach just a block away.

    Large, hotel-like hostel - for as crazy as Venice Beach can feel outside, inside the hostel feels calm/safe. The hostel is right on the boardwalk, so lots of food within walking distance, and lots of noise (closing your window helps). There is 24 hour front desk, and the staff is friendly/professional. The room was clean, and the private bathroom was a nice touch. The common areas/kitchen were closed and we weren’t notified ahead of time (for COVID, so understandable). Would recommend overall!

    The hostel was overall a nice stay. Shared bathrooms were okay. Although there were only two in our floor (which has around 15 bedrooms) we didn't have to wait too long in order to use them. The most unpleasant surprise was to find so many stairs and no elevator. Specially at the check in and check out stages, it wasn't fun to drag our luggage all the way up and all the way down through the stairs. Beds were okay. Loved that the electric outlets had usb ports. Lots of homeless outside the hostel

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.
