I was going to stay there for 2 nights, but I checked out after the first. There was a very smelly and noisy person in the room. I couldn't sleep all night. The staff was very friendly and the place was very simple, but ok to stay overnight.
Super convenient to the railway station if you're doing the 774 pacific surfliner or other train. Unfortunately hostel is closed until late afternoon so you need to sit with your gear for a long time after the train arrives from San Fran waiting for hostel to reopen.
Only stayed overnight but noticed this is a "real" hostel with excellent facilities for folks staying longer -- good large clean kitchen, well located, friendly staff and visitors. SLObispo very cute -- would highly recommend this hostel there -- seemed to be a lot of knowledgeable cyclists staying.
Very nice, friendly and motivated staff!
This is a great little hostel, small and with a very convivial vibe. It's in a quiet area too, with plenty of street parking if you're driving, and only a few blocks from downtown.
Had a lovely stay at HI-Hostel Obispo as a stop over on my road trip down the coast. Staff were wonderful and rooms were extremely clean. Had a very homely feel and was a short walk to the heart of downtown SLO. Felt more like I was staying at a mate's place rather than a hostel Thanks for a lovely stay- Libby
The rooms are big with a lot of beds... In some hostels this is not a problem, but here the rooms were cold and with only a very small window. The common space is so big but at least quite cosy, but if you leave the big lights on in the evening you feel like in a hospital... A bit of music would be nice! And the staff was hidden in their own private space instead of mixing with the guests, like happens in other hostels... Computer is PAYING!!!
Great little place. Really nice staff and good atmosphere.
