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 had been attending the Moby Dick marathon reading on the beach just a few very convenient steps from the hostel. Others staying at the hostel were very considerate and decent. To be honest I was expecting something else. The atmosphere will have me returning next year.

    Nice location and clean - communal space was a little rowdy so I didn’t use it too much. Great location right on the beach and staff were accommodating.

    Very Good

    Didn’t have much for meeting spaces and there wasn’t much for security besides scanning your key to the outside front door. The hostel is located right above/next to a bar, and the music is SO loud at night that it literally shakes the walls. I’ve stayed in noisy hostels before but this was a whole different level. It’s located right by the beach though, so if your goal is to go to the beach or party at the noisy bar, this place will work fine haha.

    Great choice if you’re looking for a cheap place in an amazing location on Venice Beach. You might meet some cool people too. Good staff. Cons:they try and keep it clean, but the one shower upstairs is always pretty gross, among other areas. Another thing: some dorm rooms are in the middle of the building and essentially have no window to the outside. Also, like many American hostels during COVID, they let some down-on-their-luck non-travellers stay a while, which is ok, but it changes the vibe.

    The hostel is on top of a club, so expect loud music till late. Sheets had stains. Bring a lock or the’ll charge you 8$ for one (without a lock you don’t have a safe box).

    Place was pretty dirty and small. Would only stay again if I wasn’t going to spend any time there. The day staff was helpful and super friendly. The night staff not so much.

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.
