i loved this place so much that i just had to write a review!
i only got there late, after sunset, as i had driven up from santa monica. i was struck by how gorgeous and quaint the hostel looked in the evening glow- it was a fairytale cottage set in such a beautiful street !
the manager showed us around, and it really did look like a cute farmhouse inside. very eco-friendly and full of interesting stuff, not a typical hotel. i had the double bed at the first floor. twas small, but clean and suited us just fine! very cosy. the window overlooked the pretty garden outside.
twas abit weird when i woke up and went out of the room to brush my teeth to face a whole table full of hostelites eating breakfast, but haha, i didnt mind. if you want privacy, you shld take the 2nd floor room i guess. they served lovely organic stuff for brekkie! some yummy homemade breads and such.
the shared toilets were nice and clean, no problems with the amenities.
i went to explore the house, gardens and street the next day. all the houses looked so pretty and quaint, gave me such a warm fuzzy feeling for some reason! pls do try out this hostel for yourself, it's totally worth it for such a low price! i think i paid 55 USD for the double room (:
