    Quite easily the worst hostel I have stayed in in my entire back-packing career. Dank, dirty, unsafe and full of people who have nowhere else to live instead of travelling backpackers. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!

    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
