This hostel is very good. It is a real Venice Beach experience. In other words it is not santa monica, or miami, it is worn, funky, fun, relaxed, social, full of travelers most staying a night or two on the way to other locations like south america, or canada. It is in the center of the boardwalk the center of...

The location is Excellent only meters from Venice Beach. I stopped in a double room - Room Clean. Showers Clean. We eaten out everyday during our stay, and also travelled around LA, using the hostel as a base.

Hostels in LA are expensive in general, so this place cost an average price and provided the basics - beds, bathrooms, put-together-yourself breakfast. The place wasn't the cleanest or safest but the location is amazing. We walked an hour by the ocean on a quiet avenue to find our hostel in the most happening 12am location in LA. The stunt...

There is absolutely nothing good that can be said regarding this establishment. The communication was rude and unprofessional (who writes email replies using all capitals letters)... No "great location" can make up for the treatment we experienced!

The hostel was all good, but when we finished cooking our meal on our last day, and were about to wash our dishes, someone wanted to use what we were using (like a pan or something) right away, without us washing it and we gave it to them (not directly, just placed it on the counter) and he said thank...

My friend and i booked this hostel prior to our arrival. We flew from New Zealand and were very tired and jet lagged. The gentleman at reception was so rude and unhelpful. He made us wait 1 hour and a half for a room as he didn't know who was checking out. He finally gave me a key and said...

I don't really understand the bad reviews on this place. It was my first time staying in a hostel, and I had a great experience. While it's not like staying at a five star hotel (you're staying in a hostel what do you expect?) the room was much bigger and cleaner than I expected. As a young female traveler, I...

I personally don't have anything to compare this hostel to because this was my first time staying in this environment. We stayed in mixed room (211).The room was basic but clean, the toilet and shower were clean which was a bonus. There was a locker for valuables. The location is great but I believe the place was a little expensive...

This hostel is located in a great spot if you're trying to stay close to the beach, we were really close to Muscle Beach, the basketball courts, and we could see the Santa Monica Pier, which was not far from us at all, but we didn't have the time to walk there. I suppose that a little more effort could...

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.
