You want a different vacation experience? Can you exchange the perfectness of hotels with making fast friends, meet people from all over the world, and be right next to the beach? I stayed here (in my 30s) with my son (17) for 4 nights and...More

First I must preface this with saying that the States don't really have a hostel culture. So if you are looking for hostels with European standards and prices, then you will always be disappointed. You would be better off looking for cheap motels/hotels.
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
