Step back in time at HI Sacramento, a beautifully restored Victorian mansion in the heart of California’s state capital. The hostel boasts elegant parlors, private and shared bedrooms full of period details, a fully equipped guest kitchen, outdoor patio, and a game room. Guests enjoy free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast, luggage and bike storage, and much more! Free guest activities are hosted each day, such as Taco Tuesday, dinner nights, movie nights, weekly pub crawls and afternoon tea time. Just blocks from the hostel, guests can explore the State Capitol, DOCO Plaza and Golden One Center, as well as the riverfront shops and museums of historic Old Sacramento and the hip bars and restaurants of Midtown. The American River Parkway is close by if you fancy a relaxing bike ride along the river (ask us about our bike rentals!)

Accommodations are available in shared gender-specific or all-gender dorm rooms, or in private rooms. Most rooms have shared bathrooms, but two private VIP rooms with private baths are available. Upstairs dorm rooms feature classic Victorian fireplaces and tile work, and a mahogany-railed staircase and mezzanine overlook the lobby beneath a huge painted-glass skylight.

The hostel’s fully equipped kitchen is the perfect place to store food and prepare meals. Guests can opt to eat in the hostel’s ornate dining room (complete with chandelier!)

I’ve stayed in many hostels during my years of traveling. This beautiful old mansion is a standout! The staff were warm and engaging and provided me with excellent suggestions for places to see, swim and dine. I thoroughly enjoyed conversation with guests from many different countries. Despite the 111 degree weather out, the mansion was cool and inviting.

I had such a wonderful stay at this beautiful hostel! It was such a warm, safe, clean and gorgeous place. So many members of the staff were incredibly accommodating and caring. The manager is great and helped me figure out plans around the city. They have a big kitchen to cook in and even have a bin for composting! I stayed in the private queen room one night and then the female dorm room and both were lovely. Thank you again!
