Samesun is amazing! I wasn't sure what to expect staying at my first hostel. I am traveling from Kentucky but chose this place because of the location and price! It is as close to staying on the beach as you can get. We arrived to check in and it was a quick and easy process. I did bring my passport but for national travelers your ID will work as well.The room was spacious with its own sink and mirror. They do also provide towels. The hostel was clean bright and inviting with good security. The WiFi was also good. They even offer free activities every day of the week for guests to meet and interact. We took advantage of the Surf Lessons with South Cal and instructor Dustin. It was an amazing experience that I highly recommend. They do offer breakfast. All in all Samesun excelled way above our expectations and we would choose to stay here any time we come back to Venice!
