I chose this hostel because it was cheaper than the others and so I got what I had expected. The only thing I would complain about was that I wasn‘t allowed to sit in the lounge area for 15 mins after checking out, but was asked to leave immediately… charging for luggage storage is one thing but just to let me wait for my bus? A bit disappointing

Clean and quiet. Fyi, there is quite a sulfuric odor in this part of town. Stay closer to the redwoods if this bothers you. Also the gym next door has a very loud (but good) playlist that you can hear during their 5am, 6am, and 7am workouts. Bring earplugs. Overall a comfortable place to stay and close to bus routes. Would recommend.

Small bedrooms but very comfortable beds. It felt like a harry potter house with these many windings but cute after all.
