Is Samesun hostel near Pacific avenue Venice in a safe locat

Hi, I'm staying in Samesun for a few days mid August and I just wanted to find out is this considered a safe location or is advisable to rebook somewhere safer? I booked it as it seemed close to Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey but it's really unclear where is safe and where isn't around this area.

What sources are telling you the area is unsafe?

It's the heart of Venice -- the center of tourists, street performers, pot stores, alternative lifestyle living. It's an extremely dense area, very busy and VERY loud. If that makes you uncomfortable, then look into HI hostel in Santa Monica.

At the bottom of the stats: "Over the last six months, the rate of 202.3 crimes per 10,000 people is higher than in nearby Del Rey, Playa del Rey, Mar Vista and Marina del Rey."

Don't leave anything unattended!
