Samesun Hostel

One of California’s most vibrant and eclectic neighborhoods! Surrounded by music, art & beach culture, our hostel is just steps from the famous Venice Boardwalk & Muscle Beach. Hostel is conveniently located close to LAX, walking distance to Santa Monica and is the only ocean front hostel in Los Angeles! The vibrant Boardwalk is lined with bars, cafes and restaurants with some of the best people-watching on the planet as artists, hipsters, travelers and locals all mix together in this beach front oasis. 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.

We pride ourselves on our homey, down to earth atmosphere where everyone is part of the family! Staying here you will learn about the hostel industry and experience different cultures from all around the globe. Leading the various activities, you will strengthen your interpersonal and leadership skills, as well as be fully immersed in the Venice way of life. If you are interested in learning more about the California culture and love meeting people from all walks of life, we would love to have you join us and become a part of the family! We want to show guests a good time and enthusiastic volunteers will help show guests a good time and hopefully help them create great memories of our city. In addition, there are plans for our volunteers to work as greeters and contribute a bit to tidying up around the hostel.

some("The best experience I\'ve had this year, the staff is incredible, you can feel at home and the work hours are enjoyed every day, you have contact with the guests all the time. You have the chance to explore and discover once of the most famous california places VENICE BEACH (surfers, skaters, and sexys Americans 😋). Then is easy to go to downtown Los Angeles and walk through Santa Monica and Marina del Rey. The sun smiles every day and you can see the beach from the window. Worldpacker I can tell you will never forget this experience. ")

One of the best experiences of my life. I really loved it.
The best place to make friends and improve the English language.
You can go to the beach, pubs, parties, everything is very close to the hostel.
Volunteer work is not difficult, you just have to organize yourself in relation to the schedules, the activities are distributed throughout the week, at different times.
I really recommend Samesun at Los Angeles to everyone. Thank you Samesun, Manager Mahdi and all staff.
