* Our hostel is for young international backpackers/tourists only * valid passport + proof of international travel required * if you don't have this, please read details below + call the hostel to discuss before booking *

Our small, clean and friendly Youth Hostel has both communal shared dormitories with bunk beds and 3 private rooms in a nice, safe area.

1 - Our budget Youth Hostel is for Young International Backpackers/tourists + you will need proof of international travel (e.g., PASSPORT with recent stamps or a valid outbound air ticket) -
If that's not you, please call us to discuss your situation before booking/traveling.
Know that at times, we can make exceptions and welcome young domestic U.S. tourists, however,
** Local Californian residents or non-backpackers/tourists will not be admitted and we reserve the right of admission. **

-- If we're your first hostel experience just remember that we are not a Hotel/Motel & we offer cheap dorm beds/rooms for Young International Budget Backpackers only. During high season, the hostel will be full, privacy cannot be guaranteed & an open mind is required. Other than that, you'll meet lots of like-minded young souls & have a great time! --

2 --- Taxes not included in all the rates shown online. Upon your arrival, you'll be required to pay the 'Balance Due On Arrival' plus an additional state tax, UNLESS your confirmation email states that the taxes are already included.

3 --- Hostel opens for check-ins from 9am through 12 midnight
(Note that we only open our doors at 9AM so please do not call us before that time or attempt to enter the hostel (not even to drop your bags.))

-- If you need to stay later than 1PM (+- until 7PM) and use the facilities (showers/kitchen/lounge/luggage storage) due to a late outbound flight/train, you'll need to pay us a small day fee of $5. --

4 --- We count with TWO BUILDINGS, the main one is a vintage German style Country House converted to a Youth Hostel 35 years ago making us the longest running Youth Hostel in Venice Beach! The second venue, 200 meters away, is a two storey boutique building, very cozy and will make you feel at home!
You might be staying at either location but YOU MUST CHECK-IN at 2915 YALE AVENUE.

-- Great day & night life close to the beach, bars, malls, 3 inexpensive bus lines with easy routes and for water enthusiasts, the amazing Marina del Rey with kayaks, Paddleboards, etc. for rent.

5 --- FREE & SAFE STREET PARKING ON BOTH VENUES (Street parking does not mean private parking or a closed parking lot, but it will be free and your vehicle will definitely be safe) - Always comply with all parking signs and regulations, e.g., park on the right side of the road, no parking in alleys, red colored curbs or in front of fire hydrants (not even for 10min while you're doing the check-in). Also mind temporary No-Parking Restriction zones due to emergency works, etc. ( )
-- You might be staying at either location but YOU MUST CHECK-IN at 2915 YALE AVENUE.

In the event that we're unable to drive, i.e. your arrival date falls on a day/week of staff holiday, please TAKE THE LOCAL BUS TO REACH US:

--From the baggage claim exit the building and take the free airport 'LAX Lot South / LAX City Bus Center” shuttle to the 'LAX City Bus Center' then board the #3 or #R3 Big Blue Bus towards Santa Monica. Get off at the Washington/Lincoln intersection (20-30 min.) then cross the street to 'Walgreens' and walk three blocks on Washington Blvd. We are located opposite the '26 BEACH' restaurant (neon sign), at 2915 YALE AVENUE (we're the second building on the right, the brown and white one). The bus costs $1.25 per person and you'll need the exact change.
-- BUS #3 & R3 SCHEDULE:

-- Alternatively, an Uber/Lyft ride from the airport to 2915 YALE AVE will be around $10-15

'free cancellation'), you must cancel your booking on your account at the website page or APP at least 48 hours before your arrival.
-- Failure to cancel in time will result in a cancellation charge fee equal to the first night of your stay.

El The Venice Beach Hostel es un albergue acogedor de estilo hogareño situado en uno de los barrios más emblemáticos de Los Ángeles. Estamos en una zona tranquila y segura, muy cerca del famoso paseo marítimo. Descubre quién más se hospeda en el albergue mientras saboreas nuestro desayuno continental gratuito. ¿Has conocido un par de colegas? Pues podéis ir a desafiar las olas con nuestras tablas de boogie board gratuitas, jugar al billar, echar una partida a la Wii o hacer una maratón de juegos de mesa.


¿Quieres ir directamente al agua? Estamos a pocas manzanas de Marina del Rey. Caminando 25 minutos, llegarás al Venice Boardwalk, y en 18 minutos podrás pasear por Abbott Kinney Boulevard, una calle de más de un kilómetro repleta de tiendas de ropa, galerías de arte y locales modernos donde comer algo. Desde el Aeropuerto LAX, tardarás 40 minutos en transporte público, aunque podemos ir a por ti sin coste alguno si reservas más de dos noches. También te ofrecemos aparcamiento gratuito, muy práctico si recorres la costa oeste por carretera.

Habitaciones y Dormitorios

Nuestras habitaciones dobles privadas son como un santuario lejos del bullicio de la sala común. Si no quieres que pare la diversión, reserva una cama en uno de nuestros dormitorios mixtos y duerme plácidamente rodeado de tus nuevos amigos. La ropa de cama está incluida, y dispones de una pequeña taquilla para guardar tus dispositivos electrónicos de forma segura (¡recuerda traer un candado!).

Extras y actividades

Cuando te apetezca pasar un rato en el albergue, puedes ver un partido en la televisión de pantalla gigante, leer algo emocionante de nuestro servicio de intercambio de libros o simplemente relajarte tomando un café o una infusión. ¡Otra cosa es que quieras aprovechar todo tu tiempo libre en Muscle Beach! En recepción puedes alquilar bicicletas playeras, incluso con candado para que disfrutes del agua tranquilamente.

    Even though I just stayed one night I would definitely recommend the hostal to everyone. It’s a beautiful house in a quiet street close to everything you can possibly need and it’s pretty close to the airport as well. Ian, who runs the hostal, is a very cheerful and kind man. He was very helpful. Staying in the oldest hostel in Venice Beach was a perfect decision! I hope to be back soon.

    I would stay here again without a doubt. The hostel is well located in Marina del Rey/Venice beach, and you can walk everywhere, even to Santa Monica. Close to the bus stops and specially close to the bus stop to get to/from LAX. Booked three nights, stayed for a week. The kitchen and the common area are fully equiped. Also Enjoyed breakfast very much everyday. Really appreciate how the owner and all the staff members made feel like home and helped me with every question I had. Thanks again! :)

    El dueño del lugar es muy amable, trata de informarte de todo lo que puedes encontrar cerca al hostel. La limpieza está bien, tienen una cocina amplia y limpia. Lo que podría mejorar son las camas, se ven un poco antiguas y con poca privacidad pero para el precio me pareció Ok; asimismo si bien el dueño- administrador es muy cálido, sería recomendable tener a alguien más en caso se requiera de información. La ubicación también me pareció ok, cerca al aeropuerto y unas cuadras de la playa.

    PAID LUGGAGE STORAGE $5 TO STAY PAST 1PM. TAXES NOT INCLUDED. Place was okay. Low season no people and no atmosphere. Generally clean. Owner seems very meticulous and very Type A. Many written and unwritten rules about the place. Not a fun environment to hang out at all. Just a place to spend the night and get on your flight. Close to the airport. Wouldn’t recommend as a social setting, felt kind of cold and isolated. Owner was RUDE ON THE PHONE. Instructed me to book more expensive dorm.

    JUST DON’T! Managed in the mornings by a passive aggressive person, who walks in the rooms shouting unnecessarily and opening all windows and curtains (even if you’re sleeping). When addressed about it, he replied “we don’t care, this is how we run the hostel, you can take your money back and leave”. Besides this, the kitchen and bathrooms are filthy and the doors don’t close (literally, not even a door knob). There’s no heater anywhere and staff forced me to have the room windows open.
