Breakfast was awesome!
Those complementary pancakes
That I had to sleep on the top. But that’s fine, someone got there before me.
What a nice experience! The staff was great and extremely accommodating!
The beds were so comfortable, had e everything you could need to cook with, refrigerator, very clean showers and big too, clean bathrooms also big. There up stairs and down stairs . Off street parking, one walking residential block from am track, never heard train at all. Friendly staff. I'm 64 I have never stayed in less then a three star hotel, this is like a 2 1/2 stars it so good, a lot of food available and you can bring your own too. Pancakes homemade and coffee in am. For dinner they served chicken and salad and spaghetti, coffee is very good too. You get a clean towel, locks avaible for 5.00, for your entire stay you get the 5 dollors deposit back on key. Had rear, lighted rear door with combo door lock, as they close main door about 10 pm. You leave at 11 am check out, or go see the town, as they are closed 11- 4:30pm every day, and no staff is in office. So you have to have something to do or read in front yard in front and socialize. Very quiet location, in regular housing track, very cozy hip area, lots of stuff to do in daytime and you get a great map of area, very easy to read, most everything is in walking distance . I was admazed!! I could be using hostels and saving big bucks. My stay was 37 dollors overnight, plus tax 41.15 total such a great deal. Each room has 4 sleeping beds, bunks also, and family rooms. Your own shelf area to lock, on site washer and dryer 5.00 for use no matter how many loads you have to do, big, big kitchen and table, patio, guitar, wi-fi, piano too. No t.v. but most has their phones for watching t.v..each room has ample electrical sockets for charging. Library, records, turn table. Just a great place, do try them, 30 minutes from chumash casino, Hearst castle close, bullitions, pismo beach 15 minutes, the madonna in 10 minutes away. Just off the 154 freeway. Nipoma is 10 minutes away too .lots of close winery's to tour. My first time doing hostel it was fabulous .
Once door is closed, room is dark, maybe a night light? Otherwise your all covered, linens, blankets,pillows, towels. All items are in living condition like in your home and very clean.
The staff is very friendly and do their best to make everyone feel comfortable. The young lady who checks in guests is extremely kind and patient. I’ve observed her work with challenging guests and she handles it very professionally. I have some health issues that limit my mobility and I genuinely appreciate how helpful she’s been:-) Thank you!
