A good clean secure hostel. The toilets and showers were clean and the rooms were clean and tidy. Comfortable beds with very dark quiet rooms ensuring you will get a great sleep. There is only a small common area and over all this was a quiet Hostel. I did feel the price was rather exuberant for a dorm room, had...

Amazing location (from the front rooms of the hostel you can see palm trees and the sea!) as you are on Venice Beach within 1 minute of leaving the hostel with food stands, bike rental places and bars all around. Very friendly and helpful staff, good clean rooms, great inclusion of all guests with free activities each night for everyone...

Great location for Venice Beach (if that's your scene...!) Breakfast was really good, lots of options although there was a mad scrum in the kitchen at nearly all times. Otherwise, fairly average, felt a bit run down but fine backpacker accommodation if that's what you're looking for.

Although I only stayed one night in this hostel I can tell you it is a very good place te be. Staff was very helpful to show me how to go to the Getty Center by public transfer. Breakfast was very good and Venice Beach is an interesting place to be.

The common part of the hostel are too small for the number of persons. What's more they are not friendly. Location is great but expect a few hours to go downtown with public transport because of LA Traffic

The standards are overall an average for the room comfort and the supply for it like towels, charger, presentation. The breakfast is very simple, but included. Big advantages are that the WiFi is working quite nicely and the location just at the Venice beach is a catch.

Overall, my stay was alright. But it was pricey for a hostel, I would not pay that price to stay again. Great location, right on the beach. Although the area is quite sketchy at night and very noisy, it was difficult to sleep. Staff were helpful and friendly. Room was clean and security was good.

Clean, secure rooms and really nice staff! The hostel is located right near the main beach and near all the action. We only stayed one night here but loved it! Affordable and friendly! We'll be back :)

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.
