the place closes for cleaning at 11 am and everyone has to leave and take off for 5 hours,it put a big damper on the stay. it was hard not to come back after waking up early and take a nap, also it limited going out at night, because so much time was spent going out in the daytime, before i was ready to go , taking all my stuff, making sure i had everything, and after lunch i had to find extra things to do to kill time, by the time i got back i was exhausted and it did not leave time for dinner

very nice and frieddly place, not far from everything! Just staid for one night there, but everything was good!


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.
