      Thank you so much to Sara and Co. for making my mini birthday vacation very special and pleasant. My first time visiting L. A. and certainly not the last. Would definitely come back again to Venice someday— nice, clean, efficient, and right on the beach!

      Surprisingly nice hostel on the strand

      Bunk beds are slightly small, fit my 5’9”. Didn’t sleep well but don’t know if it had to do with the noisy A/C.

      Great place for young travelers

      I loved my stay here! I ended up extending after the first week! Super friendly staff, conveniently located right on the beach, made a lot of friends as well!

      Low Class people and owners Hotel.

      This Hotel has Very Poor Customers service and Treatment. I had Car Problem and I called the front desk to let them know I was going to be late with my check in after 3Am .I was told no problem the front Lobby is open 24hrs.So when I arrived I was told that my reservation was cancelled because my credit card was denied. I knew that they were Lying to me because I have plenty of money in my account. So they're terrible people who manage this Hotel. Front Lobby Personal was hidden behind a wall with just a camera and speaker to talk. When I told them about I called to let them know I was running late and I was told no problem will be waiting for you. That person didn't want to talk no more and sent me these two Men who came out of a alley to Scare Me away with my Wife. It was a planned setup. I know they canceled my reservation because I reserved since last year when Hotel rates were cheap and now they can rent out at full price. This is a Very Low Class of people and owners who allow this kind of scams to be done. Very scary and dangerous to send Their People from the alley to Scare you away. So I'm leaving this review and hopefully either Hotel.com or Consumer protection does something about this Place.

      Great location, ok facility

      Right at the skate park. Walked out of Samesun to the beach and ran right into it. Great skating day and night. Shared a room with a wonderful young lady from Italy. Great view. Cheapish bunk beds. Bathroom ok. Didn't spend much time in the room, tbh. I loved Venice. The people watching is almost as good as NYC.

      I have health issues so I think you should mention no elevator. Stairs can be tough for some

      This place is a joke.

      So I had to pay almost 40 dollars in parking for over night at this location. Got to the front desk to check in gave them my Id and they asked for the person I was with Id that had broke and was missing the very bottom of the ID. They told us because of that we couldn’t stay there and I had to find another place to stay. I asked so what happens to my reservation online and the manger said it will be canceled which it seems he didn’t do either.

      Loved my stay

      It was a wonderful hostel, friendly staff, they were able to keep my bag for me until I could officially check in. Super clean! That was a big one for me, some hostels lack sanitation. The common areas were closed because of Covid. There are a lot of homeless people wondering around, so if you’re a woman just be wary of that. Perfect location though, so close to the beach, lots of shopping to do outside, food was spectacular, such a vibey place
