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

    Samesun hostel at Venice Beach is perfect! Security from outside the hostel to inside makes one feel very safe. They give a sense of privacy and a welcoming feeling in a shared living environment. They take cleanliness, environmental matters, and professionalism (whilst being personable) very serious. The atmosphere is “chill” and group gatherings with fun and music are common. The location is perfect. Wether you are here to relax or partake in festivities, you will feel comfortable.

    It was mine and my sisters first time staying in a hostel and right when we got there we were meeting friends already we had a wicked 5 days there meeting people at the hostel was the best part! The pub crawls are awesome and there’s a cool bar right across the street. The view from our room was amazing. Definitely coming back next time in Cali 😊

    I can't say enough good things about this place! This is the best hostel I've stayed in so far! Very neat and clean, friendly staff, great lounge area, and good breakfast. Everyone I met here was super friendly and place felt very safe. Rooms and bathrooms seemed newly renovated and perfectly maintained. Highly recommend! :)

    Very consistent hostel. Great location to see venice beach. Cheap (compared to other hostel locations) transport to LAX due to proximity to airport. Kitchen and labeling system on point. Common area fun and beach views. Security is solid and felt safe. Plenty of scooter, and bikes available outside. I have been staying here on cali trips for over 7 years. Above average for US.

    Great hostel, amazing location, good atmosphere. Staff was friendly at all times. Only downside is that the WiFi wasn't that great in our room and kept going off all the time.

    I had Such a great time. This place is located in a perfect area of Venice Beach. The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to provide the guest with a relaxed and fun environment. We were disappointed that there was no good social area within the hostal, and no bar but there was a great bar right across the street. I have stayed in hostals all over the world, and while this one was outstanding, it’s missing the ambiance of a hostal abroad ( outside the US). 9/10 100% would Come back

    Good hostel, can’t say it was great, as I found one better, they give you a nice breakfast, a little bit expensive for what they offered, nice vibes, cool people, only one floor, located in a second floor without lift, no wheelchair access, small common area, if you smoke you have to go down for it. Good staff really friendly. The neighbourhood full of homeless people. Feels quite unsafe at night. Will recommend staying in Santa Monica Hi hostel better.

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.
