Great place to stay. Not too far from the beach and the amenities are up to scratch. Staff overall were very helpful with everything from information about the area to renting bikes from the hostel, although here was one guy working there who was quite rude which made things uncomfortable at times.

This hostel is a nice, homely and warm house...if you are lucky enough to stay in that location. We got moved to a shared flat down the road, which was noisy, thin walled and a little bit run down. Staff was very friendly, everything else probably below standard, considering we paid 100 USD. The bed was fold out and the... More

I really don't understand the bad reviews of this place! My partner and I stayed here as part of a budget round the world trip, and we couldn't have been happier! Far cheaper than anywhere else we found in LA, great location only 15 mins walk from Venice Beach, and a really homely place to stay that is more like... More

This hostel is near the Venice canals and a few restaurants. It has a homely feel about it, a kitchen where you can cook, good bathrooms and dorm rooms. I felt very relaxed here, not a party hostel but an area in the kitchen where you could drink.

I booked this place thinking that it was the hostel at Venice Beach which is actually on Pacific Boulevard. This one is not where you think it is - it's on Washington which is nowhere near the beach. We found on arrival that we had booked rooms in an 'overflow' block with zero character upstairs from a laundrette. The rooms... More

We arrived late at night having had a long drive from Pismo beach. The address detailed on hostel world and booking conformations etc. is wrong so expect a very difficult time finding the place. The hostel is located in a residential area with absolutely no sign-age whatsoever. As we arrived after dark there was no one outside and therefore we... More

Located approximately 15 minutes walk from Venice/ Santa Monica beach. You can reach the hostel from the airport in 30 minutes from the airport via two buses in relatively moderate traffic, although traffic in LA is horrific most of the time. The rooms are very basic, lots of beds in a medium-sized space, not cramped for sure. Washing facilities were... More

This place is probably the worst hostel I've ever been too..and I've stayed in some pretty dodgy hostels! It is a mission to try and find the place because they advertise under a different address, another hostel told us it's because they are not actually allowed to have a hostel in the area. The place is literally just a run... More

So we arrived late at night extremely challenging to find the location as the address is wrong on multiple websites! Although staff was helpful in directing us. A helpful check in by staff. Dodgy, cramped bedroom- not worth the price. Was in a dorm of 16, at 6am the whole dorm was woken up to the sound of outrageously loud... More

Nice place, hard to find as they advertise under a different name. They have on street parking and really nice staff. Feels more like a home than a hostel. Only its a bit run down and the beds could be much better. Need a car as the beach is fair hike away

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.
