I like this place because it is just in the beach and is a perfect place for you to enjoy sunshine, blue sky, and beaches. The atmosphere in this hostel is good, fun and energetic too, and I would recommend this place to others and will stay again for my next visit. However, there is no air-conditioning in this hostel.

Perfect place for young travelers. The location is super, staff is friendly, some rooms are very hot, others are perfect especially those who look to the ocean. It's the right place to meet people from allover the world.

The hostel is clean, friendly & in an amazing location! Courtney at front desk is fabulous & helped me with any queries I had! The location is right on the door of venice boardwalk, very unique. I was hesitant to go on my own but the overall trip was fantastic!

Thanks for the feedback! Courtney is pretty fabulous - I will make sure this gets passed along to her. Venice is quite unique and has a lot of character, plus the beach. What more could you ask for?! Again, thanks for the positive comments and safe travels. Cheers, Sara General Manager More

Cool people, clean bedrooms, cool vibes everywhere, its just perfect for party and relaxing. Its just on the beach, so you can rent a skateboard or a surfboard and go riding everywhere. I truly recomend this hostel for young people, who want to know other people and party together.

Samesun has great staff who are very helpful, an awesome and cheap Hostel Hopper Bus Shuttle Service, clean rooms (Bathrooms leave a bit to be desired on occasion - especially after a Friday/Saturday night) and the location is to die for if you love the beach and the outdoors that LA has to offer.

Good location for venice beach, not too far from airport either. Rooms are good size with lockers! And has nice view overlooking venice skate park! There is a good selection of bars and shops around the hostel, staff were friendly, would probably stay there again, if I go back to Los Angeles

The rooms were a mess, and the staff were unorganised and unresponsive. During my stay I was asked to check out of my room to check into another mid stay only to be told to check back into the same room. You could not pay me to stay here again.

Sorry to hear that your stay with us was not ideal. The original reservation that you booked had you and your friend in the same room, however, you contacted us letting us know that you made an error with the dates. With these date changes, it affected our ability to get you into the same room, as we were fully... More

Nice service, Well located hotel. Nice choice for staying 3 or 4 nights with your friends. Its next to the beach and has some bars underneath, which are plenty of people on saturdays and fridays. The beach is 1 minute from the hotel. The people that are in charge of the hotel are very friendly

I really recommend this place - it's close to the beach, just in the middle of colorful Venice. Rooms and toilets were clean, I liked the idea of small breakfast - fresh coffee, toasts, oatmeal... I spent 10 days in a 4 bed room with private bathroom. I met guests from all over the world. The hostel has big kitchen... More

I wouldn't count on the free breakfast- it consists of jam and bread. The kitchen is overly crowded during breakfast. I got no sleep at night because the noise outside from music all night and the homeless is consistent. Top bunk was creaky when I moved.

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
