    As a young girl who was traveling alone, I felt very safe and comfortable. There’s keys on every room so only the people who are staying there can come in. It’s very clean and super comfy beds Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit sacramento on a budget

    Hostelworld had a lot of incorrect information listed on their website. Hostelworld listed checkin time as 2pm. At checkin we were told it was 3pm and had to wait an hour. Parking fees stated by Hostelworld was $5 per night. At checked in we were told it was $6 per night. Hostelworld neglected to list important information about age requirements for staying in shared rooms. When we arrived we were told my 8year old could not stay in shared room. Manager was nice enough to upgrade to private room

    I really have a great time and all people were reslly nice and kind with me. I was only my last day for my checkout that I was about half an hour late but they took all my things out of the empty roon. Nobidy else was there. I found it a bit rude they didn't even give me a few minutes though. And not so many people were there. The guy who put my belongings in containers, perhaps was following very strictly the rules but at times flexibility is friendly and nice.

    The property was in a beautiful Victorian Mansion. The staff was friendly and I even got a free spaghetti dinner and breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay there and would recommend it to any other persons that are interested.

    My stay at this hostel has been fine and I love the room and space. The parking lot is very safe, through gated door and parking was only $6/night. I would recommend to any travelers. One commend is, i wish there were more varieties of food breakfast and fruits. Come and stay here and you won't be disappointed.

    Such a beuatiful hostel and you can tell the staff really want to create an amazing vibe - unfortunately it wasn't quite there for me during my stay as there were a lot of older groups of travellers and not quite the youthy vibe. But there are communal activities nights most nights and an amazing games room so I imagine it's great when its busy. Also there is only stairs and they are pretty painful but it's alllll good

    Very Good

    It's a beautiful old but well preserved building. Clean bedroom and bathroom. It doesn't come cheap, but you'll get some surprises like the one I had on last July 4, They served Taco and BBQ with cakes which was very good. A male staff was not so friendly in answering my questions. But it's okay, as long as I had a good night sleep.

    The bathrooms on the upper floors were not very clean and lacked privacy. However the staff were generally great and the location was pretty good.
