Property Description

We are a charming, friendly hostel with the feel of a B&B. Located in a sunny, welcoming college town on California's Central Coast, we are a convenient stay midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. We create a relaxed, safe, homestyle atmosphere for travelers of all ages and are just a few short blocks to the treasures of downtown.

While staying at Hostel Obispo, you can explore tidepools at Montana de Oro , birdwatch at Morro Bay, rent kayaks at Shell Beach, hike the many hills and canyons surrounding the hostel, go surfing at one of the four beaches in the county, or bike along the coastline. An outdoor lover's paradise!

For an indoor experience, you might attend a concert at the Performing Arts Center, explore the state's fifth oldest mission, or visit Hearst Castle. View House Rules

    Centrally located, very clean rooms and friendly staff. Free sourdough pancake breakfasts. Not your typical young hipster crowd - at least the 2 days we were there. Kitchen has all the amenities, but community couch could stand to be replaced - only "negative". Within easy and safe walk to downtown.

    Very friendly/accommodating staff and homey feel. Dorms are typical of hostel location (i.e. noise at night isn't non-zero). Conveniently located to SLO key sights. Would recommend.

    Everything was great here. Very clean. Easy. My only suggestion would be to modernize the lockers so they have outlets inside allowing you to charge your devices while you sleep or are away, AND every bed should have a reading lamp. Terrific place. I'll come again.

    Lovely little hostel just a stones throw from the Amtrak Station. Handy if travelling up or down the Califonia coast. Quite open and safe with no locked doors (lockers are available). A few minutes walk from a nice little park and shops, and a short bus ride or drive from several beaches. Although only here for one night, i found it enjoyable. Pancakes and coffee available in the morning.

    It was fine, San Luis Obispo is not a city I would recommend for anything other than a stopping point on the coast, but the hostel was fine, clean and friendly. The guests were generally older than most hostels I have stayed in and its certainly not a party hostel. The staff were nice and they have a good kitchen. Very much like staying in someones house (probably because it is a house).
