HI - San Luis Obispo Hostel Reviews


HI-San Luis Obispo, Hostel Obispo is the perfect stopover for travelers along the California Coast. Halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, it is close Montana de Oro State Park, 4 beaches, and amazing volcanic peaks; less than an hour's drive to Hearst Castle and the famous Big Sur Highway 1. San Luis Obispo County is a paradise for outdoor activities - cycling, hiking, surfing, kayaking and rock-climbing to name a few. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, HI-San Luis Obispo (Hostel Obispo) is a short walk to downtown shops, cafes, theaters, and the Amtrak train station. Don't miss the Thursday night Farmer's Market!

As a small, family-owned business with only 24 beds, Hostel Obispo does not have staff on the premises during the day. Consequently, guests must be out of the hostel between the hours of 10 am and 4:30 pm. If you have a private room, you might be able to arrange access to your room in the afternoon by checking with the front desk staff. No check-ins after 10 pm, but once you have checked in, you may go out and return to the hostel as you wish with a code to the combination lock on the back door.

Our cozy lounge is equipped with two guitars, a piano, drums, and a tambourine. Music, anyone? In the winter, you can keep warm with hot chocolate in front of the fireplace, and in the summer you can relax outdoors on one of our three patios.

Home-made sourdough pancakes and organic coffee are served from 8 to 9:30 am (donations accepted).

Guests must have proof of residency outside San Luis Obispo county.
