This hostel has a fantastic location, that's really what makes it 4 stars for me. The staff are pretty friendly (depending on who you get), Dom the activities guy is great fun for sure! The breakfast is soso and the kitchen/lounge areas are kinda small and impractical. Beds are really comfy though, the internet is great and you really can't... More

After staying at a SameSun in Kelowna and having a good experience, I thought I'd give their Venice location a try. My wife and I rented a private room for four nights. We had a few hiccups: the smoke-detector kept beeping and we were initially over-charged (deposit wasn't factored in). But as soon as we pointed out the problems, they... More

Great people, really helped me out when I stuck in a bind - came in late at night without enough money for the night so they let pay what I had and the rest in the morning when I could get some. Awesome location and all the good stuff - nice facilities, free breakfast, power and fan for every bed.

It doesn't get any better than this location wise. If you want to be where all the action is in Venice Beach look no further. We had our car with us and parked in the lot right behind the hostel for $20 bucks one night and then found street parking for the next. We did the free bar crawl on... More

Loved staying here, free breakfast is good, hostel is super clean and the common area is great - you look out onto Venice Beach. Staff are all very friendly and super helpful. Really cool area for tourists, there is lots to see within walking distance. If you like the beach this is the perfect spot for you.

Loved the place! The people who worked there were great help and loved the influence of them to really make a friendly environment. Made some great friends. Location was in the middle of Venice, and everything Venice related. Highly, highly recommend

Had an amazing stay. Really helpful & friendly staff and the rooms have a mirror & sink in them which is handy. Ideal location right in the heart of Venice beach. Would 100% stay here again when I'm in LA.

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.
