Venice Beach - Warm, weird and wonderful

Welcome to Venice Beach, paradise for those who like it warm, weird, and wonderful. Samesun Backpackers (formerly known as The Venice Beach Cotel) is located on Windward Ave in the original St. Charles Hotel building, the first hotel in Venice. Windward Avenue was the hub of Venice at its beginnings and still maintains that popularity now, mostly due to new attractions such as the beachfront skate park.

Venice is one of the most vibrant and eclectic neighbourhoods on the continent, and Samesun backpackers 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.

Over 25 years of experience, we have private and shared rooms, some with partial or full ocean view. Reception at Venice Beach Cotel is open 24 hours with excellent building security. In our bar you will find great people to hang out and party with and in our kitchen you will find FREE coffee & tea. All beds are made with fresh linen and towels.
