Lets face it, you aren't staying at The W or Chateau Marmont so I dont understand all these reviews bashing the place.
It is a HOSTEL, fairly cheap, full of young people. It may sometimes get a little noisy but I can honestly say it never kept me awake. It is in pretty much the best location in the whole of Venice Beach. A Restaurant/Bar right downstairs, friendly enough staff, overly friendly manager who is always making sure everyone is having a good time.
I have stayed here three times since 2009. Usually about 2-3 weeks each time over the period of about 5 weeks whilst im in USA. The closest thing I have ever had to a problem was one night a group of friends and myself checked in and went to sleep. We woke up the next morning to the most intense heat I have ever felt in my life. Went to the reception desk and told them and they checked it out. Turns out the heater was broken and blowing hot air into our room. 20 minutes later we are in a new room with a beach view. Problem solved, no drama.
I would reccomend this place to anyone who has realistic expectations of $25 a night accommodation. I honestly love the place and am excited for the next time I come back to Venice
