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

    Really enjoyed our short stay! Big appreciation to the staff that kept the building clean and filled with good vibes. We'd love to come back and spend more time. Excellent location, comfortable clean rooms. Yes, Venice Beach may seem a little sketchy to some at night. That's not the hostel's fault, and honestly, keep your head up and mind your own, and people are going to leave you alone as you stroll the ocean front walk. PS: didn't have any issues parking a few blocks away and hopping a scoot.

    Perfect spot to check out Venice Beach, with an Ocean View. I stayed there during lockdown and had a whole room to myself which was nice, with bathroom en-suite :) Staff was helpful and the room was clean!

    Excellent location - walking up and walking outside the front door and straight onto the beach is absolutely divine. The kitchen and communal areas aren’t accessible due to the pandemic... which is unfortunate. Friendly staff. We stayed in a single dorm room. It only had one window with a cover over it that didn’t let much light in. But that didn’t matter because we were out and about all day and the price was resonable

    I had so much fun and stayed a couple of days. I actually stayed in a private room and a doom room with my friend. The first night the private room was great and clean if there was a bathroom in the room it would have been perfect but we had no ocean view. The next day we booked a dorm room so we had a place to keep our things while roaming Venice. The room had an amazing view and we got lucky and no one els was in the dorm with us 10/10 for the view and the set up was nice.

    Very covid aware. Nice enough place. One night staff guy I'd fire... told me 55 minutes to LAX on a Sunday morning at 7 am. Was there in 10 minutes. I know the best trolling people on earth. There's fun trolling and there's just dudes being mean. I stopped trying to figure out what makes that personality tick. Venice is fun. Stay safe stay well.

    Room was nice and clean, there was a BIG stairway to carry my c**p up to get in & my wait to check in was TOO LONG. Please also check your homeless peeps right at the base of your door downstairs...I understand there is alot in that area but the one by your door was fairly aggressive/scary/drugged out of his mind and I would think twice about staying there again in effort to avoid interaction of this nature.

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.
