“loveliest stay during my california roadtrip!”
Reviewed November 12, 2010

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 (:

Arrived after lunch and walked around Camria, such a lovely little town set back in time.
The Hostel opened at 5pm, we were greeted by a very friendly lady that showed us round and too our room. We opted for a private double room with its own toilet & sink - shared shower facilities.
It was decorated lovely and very clean.
Being a hostel I was weary but it was very good value and did its job of a one night stay before we moved onto Carmel.
Two small negatives:
The bed wasnt that comfy but okay. The towels were about 20 years old and musty so we didnt really want to wash and waited for our next stop.
If your backpacking you will have your own towels anyway. Its very pretty and set in a lovely street.

A really lovely house full of character and charm. Great location near to lots of tempting restaurants in a really pretty town. Shabby and not clean enough for my standards but it's so beautiful you don't care! Good value for money.

Adorable little hostel in an extremely cute little city: we loved it!

The place was clean and quiet.

We loved the free internet as well as the water saving features in the bathrooms!

Great stop on the way down Highway 1!

Very cute hostel, in a great location to explore cambria. We stayed for one night at the end of June as we drove down Highway 1. The Hostel itself is great, very clean bathrooms and bedrooms, we stayed in room 2. It seemed to be mostly couples staying at the hostel, which made it feel more like an Inn. I would recommend this hostel to anyone travelling through Cambria, but be warned, Cambria is a very sleepy village, everything seemed to be shut by 9.00pm!

  • Liked — That it was a small hostel, great location and price!
  • Disliked — nothing!

We came up from San Diego for New Years weekend 2006-07. A great place to stay, the owners, Anne and Paolo are great hosts, and very committed to an environmentally friendly, community focused atmosphere. Buster, the manager, was helpful, and a great guy! We enjoyed our room immensely, it was a steal for $70/night, we stayed in the side room with queen bed usually reserved for staff, it includes a bathroom with sink and toilet and has a private entrance, in addition, it was right near the communal shower and kitchen, an ideal location, ask if the room is available, it is of exceptional quality. We had a great time touring the little town of cambria, the paso robles wine country (go to eberle winery, it was a great tasting and tour), and biking along highway 1 by moonstone beach. Lunch at the cafe with the blue moon hanging above the door was delicious! I don't recommend the mexican restaurant on the main drive, cheap tequila in the margaritas (and I ordered a top shelf drink), and cheap bottled salsa served as a side, overpriced and not too tasty!

Had a lovely stay at Bridge Street Inn. This is an adorable old house that has been converted to a hostel / B&B. The inn is one block away from downtown Cambria's many shops and restaurants. Cambria is very convenient to Hearst Castle, the scenic highway 1 / big sur drive, and the elephant seals. I stayed in one of the private bunks for $20 a night, including tax. That rate basically gives you a twin bed with a curtain you can pull around the bunk, giving you complete privacy. You also get a reading light and fresh linens. There are private rooms available that are very nice, but go for around $45-60 per night. There are several bathrooms in the house that everyone shares, but it is never a problem to find an empty one. Coffee and bagels/toast were provided in the morning. There is a great living room where you can sit around the fire and most likely meet someone from another part of the world. Plus, there is free wi-fi. The place is truly a unique and fun place to stay. I highly recommend it. Great for anyone who wants to feel at home when they are away from home.
