Welcome to Venice Beach, paradise for those who like it warm, weird, and wonderful.
Venice is one of the most vibrant and eclectic neighborhoods on the continent, and Samesun has opened a hostel just steps from the famous Venice Boardwalk. Located just minutes from LAX, our new American accommodation is your ideal starting point to explore Los Angeles, California, and beyond.
And yes, this is seriously the best view ever from a hostel in North America! Many of our 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 the 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.
Our amazing staff can help you organize trips to Hollywood, Universal Studios, Disneyland, and other attractions around LA. Ask us about affordable rentals for bikes, skateboards, and everything you need to be a surf maestro. Nightly activities starting in our lounge introduce you to fellow backpackers and take you out to some of the best night spots in Venice and Santa Monica. We understand the merits of being economical – the hostel offers free wifi and free storage, with free parking nearby.
Experience this amazing place in cheap and cheerful hostelling style at Samesun’s newest location!
