great hostel. nice and warm during the winter


The room was small, but clean, but the bed was the worst I have ever slept in. Change mattresses ! I felt like it was collapsing under my weight !

I had a great time staying at San Luis Obispo Hostel! The staff were all super friendly. I would definitely stay at this hostel again.

Terrific hostel, mostly used as a stop off point for people going north or south


I had a really good time. It isn't really big or fancy, but really comfy and cosy. I like that. There is only thing I have to complain about. We had in our 6 bed dorm room only 4 lockers?! How does this make sense?


Very good value. Very cheap compared to e.g. hotels in San Francisco. Only thing is that when I came hone at 0.30 AM after visiting a bar, the door wasn't locked.
