Welcome to our Venice Beach hostel in a paradise for those who like it warm, weird and wonderful.
Venice Beach, California is one of the most vibrant and eclectic neighborhoods in North America! Surrounded by music, art & beach culture, Samesun’s Venice Beach hostel is just steps from the famous Venice Boardwalk & Muscle Beach. Samesun Backpackers is conveniently located close to LAX, walking distance to Santa Monica and is the only ocean front hostel in Los Angeles!
And yes, this is seriously the best view ever from a hostel in North America! Many of our L.A. youth hostel rooms have ocean front views and/or views on to the entertainment area of the Windward Ave plaza as it meets the Boardwalk. Catch every West Coast sunset & feel the pulse of this beachfront oasis.
You don’t have to walk far from our L.A. youth hostel to start ‘California Dreaming’. Miles of beautiful beach are perfect for surfing or sunbathing. Need to work on the beach body? Around the corner is the world-famous Muscle Beach gym. Do you live to skateboard, or just starting out? It was born in Venice and the skate park in front of the hostel still attracts pro skaters from the world over. Enjoy stunning street art, amazing shopping, fresh food and some of the best people-watching on the planet from dozens of Boardwalk bars, cafes, and restaurants. A short walk or bike ride down the beach takes you to the daily Carnival at Santa Monica pier. There is something for everyone at Venice Beach, and at our full service hostel.
