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

    It's just a cool place to be! From the staff to the location. You can't get any closer to the beach unless you owned a shop 10 feet away. You must also keep in mind that there is a national emergency going on and not all facilities and the like will be open or available. Even with that going on this is still the place to be. I can't wait to come here when everything is open and poppin. Anyway, awesome place! No better location! Cool staff! Best views around.

    Loved the staff (Blu and Heather) and the early check in. Was disappointed that they weren't serving breakfast. I understand the reason but restaurants are open in the city and accommodations could of been made. But overall it was an awesome stay. Big thanks.

    Kitchen and lounge were closed due to Covid-19. The up side was that I got the whole room all by myself. The bathroom was also impressively clean. Staff member was very gracious to let me stay in the dorm room by myself. On the flip side not related to the premises itself, there are a lot of homeless residents ( who are also heavy users of drugs) stay / sleep near the main entrance. A couple of them approached me for money. This did pose some safety concern though.

    My visit was during COVID19. I was surprised when I returned after being out all day. I had to take out the dirty towel and the garbage, left in the room. Yet they did put another person in the room? But never cleaned the bathroom and empty the garbage in both?

    With all the COVID stuff, this hostel was pretty strict with what they would and wouldn’t offer, so I totally understand why things like the kitchen and common room were closed. The only negative thing I have to say about this hostel is that my room smelled like cigarette smoke and some of the beds looked jerry rigged. Other than that I had no problems. Beds are comfy shower was warm and a fair price for what you get. Fantastic location

    We came here in July of the Covid Pandemic. When entering everyone was super friendly. Our hostel room was absolutely filthy. Crust on some of the sheets , filthy carpets, stains on the bed. My partner and I wiped everything down with Clorox wipes and the wipes were literally black after doing that. Do not come here if you want a clean experience , I have been to much better hostels

    This place made me want a full refund. I was not told that all amenities were closed until I literally paid for my room. No common room, kitchen or laundry services. I was there for 3 days. The front desk clerk told me they would microwave my food then complained everytime. Even tried to say no a couple times. No water pressure in shower and given 1 measly towel. No fan in the room, it was insanely hot. No window screen so bugs kept flying in at night. Not worth it trust me, way better options.

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.
