We built the House of Trestles as a home for surfers and backpackers, making their pilgrimage to surf Trestles. House of Trestles is a surf hostel, steeped in San Clemente Surf Culture and Street Art. Located on Surfer's Row, you will be within walking or bike riding distance to 16 local breaks. The project consists of five Team Rooms, designed by local surf companies, including Lost Surf Boards, Rainbow Sandals, Ripcurl, Vissla & Catch Surf.
We handcrafted the semi-private, birch bunk beds with a curtain system for additional privacy. Each bunk has a memory foam mattress, reading light, USB charging dock and lockable storage. Each room has a sink, windows and air conditioning.

Located on Surfer's Row in San Clemente, California. Within walking and biking distance to 16 surf breaks, cafe, restaurants and bars. San Clemente is the most southern town in Orange County on the San Diego County line. An hour from Downtown Los Angeles and Downtown San Diego.

The common areas include a kitchen, dining hall, Moroccan lounge, laundry room, restrooms, showers, surf shower, wetsuit rack and art gallery. We are also home to the Street Artist in Residence program, so the building is covered in murals by internationally acclaimed street artists.

Mmmmmm, fridge was broken,turned up to 9 but it stunk to high heaven and my food dint even stay cold. No hot water at 9pm amd there were men's underwear all over the ONLY co-ed bathroom. Also, got a room that didn't look anything like the cute little built in bunks in the ad. Nope, regular bunks in a room full of smelly stoners. Booked 3 days, left after 12 hours.
