I booked this hostel because I needed a nights stop over in San Luis Obispo and it was the cheapest available. I have been traveling for over a month and stayed at many hostels ranging from party hostels to stricter ones. I read all the reviews on this one and was prepare for rude staff. When I arrived, at the same time as about 5 other groups, I expected to be waiting for some time, but the girl on the desk dealt with everyone very quickly and got everyone talking with each other, which is great for the solo traveler! In fact, this girl, Laura, was the most helpful, enthusiastic receptionist I have come across so far. She was really welcoming and was very informative.
As for the atmosphere in the hostel, the common room is essentially a living room, great for socializing and meeting people. I wasn't aware of strict rules or anything, me and a group of other people stayed talking in the common room past 2am. Everyone seemed happy there and very relaxed. Breakfast is also a great way to talk to people whilst making pancakes! I would have booked on for another night if I could have.
