This hostel was fantastic! The view from our room looked right onto Venice Beach. It was in a great location where the beach was so close & it was walking distance to Abbot Kinney & buses were frequent to Santa Monica. The rooms were clean & had enough room with good bathroom facilities. We didn't use the kitchen facilities as... More

Ive stayed here 3 times since 2004, with my latest stay in late December 2014. You cant beat the location, right in the center of Venice and literally on the beach. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly and helpful. There are loads of bars, restaurants and cafes in the area and of course the beach is only 1... More

This hostel changed my mind and showed me, that hostel is a cool place to stay if you are young and travel alone. Samesun is clean, nice rooms and good people are around. I even liked the... More

Couldn't pick a better location. Great for meeting other backpackers - which is huge help if you're travelling alone! Staff are sound, very laid back. Sure why wouldn't you be - soaking up that Californian sunshine all the time, eh? Would stay again in a heartbeat if I ever make it back to Venice. Recommended.

Samesun is the place to be! The hostel is your home and the employees are your friends. Every night you can enjoy the beautiful view from the livingroom. You are a 1-minute-walk from the beach and there are a couple of bars just across the street. I don't really wan't to go back to the US but i'd love to... More

The staff were lovely, great atmosphere, highly affordable and great location. Only flaw is that the rooms can get very hot and humid in the warmer months so maybe air conditioning systems should be invested in. As a female staying in a 6 person mixed dorm with an ensuite, I was impressed by how clean they kept the bathrooms considering... More

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.

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.
