Cam and Holly were great.
In a different life they would have made very good friends!
The Hostel was nice and the stay is worth it just for the pancakes!
Real chill environment, if i had more money I would have stayed longer.
For now, Mexico bound!

I loved staying here. The staff (specifically Holly and Cameron) were amazing- accessible, helpful, and all super fun to kick it with. Felt very home-like with a kitchen, living room, and TV equipped with netflix and what not. I actually enjoyed returning to the hostel every night and met a ton of great people. If youre traveling alone, especially as a younger person, this is a perfect place to stay to meet and find people to go out with.
Also there is an old fashion driving video game in the living room. DO NOT underestimate. This game is way funner than it should be.
Location is a little bit out of the way, but a totally walkable distance from State Street and only a short taxi ride away from Isla Vista.
Overall, I would 100% recommend this hostel. I'm sure I'll return.

Cameron and Holly were amazing and so helpful. My hubby and I had a wonderful gettaway weekend. Beautiful and friendly. I love how close it is to the beach, and the free breakfast was an awesome perk!

We arrived late, and left early while driving the PCH1. Staff were very helpful - we stayed at their other proprty 5 minutes away, and the whole transition was very easy.

Price was very reasonable (we paid about $100 to have a 4 bed room to ourselves) in a townhouse with off street parking.

Floorboards were very noisy so it would be a bit of a pain if you had people coming in all hours, but didn't seem to be an issue. I think the biggest problem which needs to be addressed is the wifi - the signal is so weak, you couldn't really get signal anywhere except sitting right in front of the television. It would be my only negative feedback on an otherwise warm, homely hostel. Would stay again
