I am a person that has traveled alone every year for Halloween for the past few years on a tight budget... This hostel is the perfect place for me. It is literally right at the beach and the weather is so beautiful and sunny.. a lil chilly at nights so bring a jacket for outdoors! The shared rooms are perfect.....

This is a pretty rough place. It's fairly inexpensive if you get a good deal booking online, and the location is too good to be true (just on the beach front with a nice bar to play pool at across the street, bus stops to downtown LA are near and you can just walk to Santa Monica easily). On the...

This hostel is very near Venice Beach. It's old and not cleaned to the highest standards (towel had brown smears on it, sink in my private room full of hair, bed had crumbs on it). There is an additional $100 key deposit that they didnt mrntion when booking, and if you dont have it in cash they charge you to...

Do not believe anything on the website. Misleading and straight up false advertising. Only good thing is the close proximity to venice beach. But even that- its a dodgy area. Security at the hostel is non existent-safes broken and the locks on windows. Rooms are in a terrible state,as is the whole hostel. We stayed in a double private room....

This place is really awesome. At first sight it looks run down and shabby, but the cool people and atmosphere really make up for that. It's pretty clean and it's right down the block from the beach, so it's a great location. They offer free breakfast and dinner, what more can you ask for? Plus the German receptionist (Simon) is...

This hostel is practically on the beach front. Great location. You have to park a few streets away in order to park for free bit not a massive issue. The staff were very helpful and our private room and bathroom were very impressive. Large, airy and clean. The place was a little worn but it added to the overall feel...

If you are looking for hotel quality accommodation then look elsewhere. If you are on a budget and are willing to compromise on the creature comforts then this hostel is fine. We booked a private double room twelve months in advance, which was rustic, spacious and came with it's own bathroom. One block from the boardwalk, therefore the beach, and...

Good location for Venice Beach and comfortable common rooms. Cameras everywhere and strict rules. Staff is partly really helpfull and partly not. Rooms are cleaned daily but the shape of the building is pretty old. Pricy. Included Pasta and rice and waffles for breakfast. Vomitting smell on the couch.

I traveled alone and booked a private room here. People were helpful, friendly and a base breakfast & dinner was included. Not the newest, but clean and spacey and excellent value for the price. Enjoyed the social interactions on a good scale, facilitated by friendly staff and sharing food. Excellent location.

Got here early and our room was ready. Great considering we just got off a long haul flight. Central to some great bars and restaurants. Walking distance to Santa Monica pier. Beds comfy and rooms clean. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Helpful with information.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood 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.
