I have never stayed in a worse hostel. It was filthy, and full of people who were living there and working in the area. It was literally falling apart, the bathrooms were rotting and full of peoples' personal stuff, the bunkrooms were full of various...More
Quite easily the worst hostel I have stayed in in my entire back-packing career.

United States > California > Los Angeles > Venice / Westside
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.
