Wow, reading other reviews about bad experiences at check-in and parking just aren't anything I've ever experienced. Sorry the other folks had such bad luck. I have been a delegate at the Annual Conference for my church for the past 4 years and I have stayed at this hostel for 3 of those years. I consider it walking distance to the Sacto Convention Center (6 blocks). I have arrived just after noon and they allowed me to check into a dorm room, despite the 2pm usual check-in time. I usually arrive by Amtrak with reservations a month in advance, so I am very thankful for their allowances with my schedule. I have taken rides home with friends and staff has always allowed my friends to use the parking lot for 10 minutes or so when loading my stuff late on saturday afternoon. I have met wonderful folks while staying at the hostel, great conversations! I really enjoy this aspect of the hostelling! Their breakfast is good, oatmeal, apples, juice and english muffins or bagels with condiments. For late dinners and late snacks, I really appreciate their kitchen facilities. The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars is because I have had trouble getting hot showers on the 2nd floor. Other gals say they thought the water was too hot, tho! I usually run the sink water for several minutes and that seems to draw the hot water to 2nd floor. The one time I stayed in a basement room, I had great hot, hot showers. The bathrooms seem to accumulate a little bit of dust on shelves and in corners... well not a little bit, A LOT!!! I am not a fastidious housekeeper so for me to recognize this is saying the place really could use some better cleaning. I know they have some people from a home for mentally challenged persons do their daily cleaning (those folks are very serious and they really take pride in their work) however, an appropriately delivered critical review might generate some positive results and be helpful.
