The Experience

Our hostel is directly on the Venice Beach Boardwalk and close to LAX. Our environment can be described as homey and quirky! Our staff aim to provide a fun, clean and relaxed environment where guests feel like family. If you are an upbeat, social, hard worker, we would be interested in you joining our team! We are looking for volunteers handle activities and so some tidying. While running activities you'll get an insiders knowledge of Venice.

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.
