  • Great Hostel but the beds were too creaky. They use temperpedic beds which I liked. I loved the breakfast they provide which is so much better than other hostels, and the staff was very helpful.

  • The people (staff) at the hostel are very friendly. I enjoy staying there. It is in a great location and is so much nicer than staying in a cold hotel. I would suggest to change the code to the bunk room Sea Otter as someone could come in who shouldn't.

  • Very kind staff. Extremely clean facilities with an incredible location to check out the local attractions of Monterey. Equally ideal as a place to rest before exploring Carmel-by-the-sea and Big Sur.

  • I was charged $10 more than what I was Quoted. Tom said there was an additional Monterey lodging tax, but you should notify bookings of this.

  • Great location. Cool programming. The staff could be a little more coordinated and organized. It was weird that I was told at the last minute that I had to switch rooms. The call came at a very inconvenient time since I was out running errands related to find an apartment in the area.

  • The gentleman at the counter double charged me. First I used my debit card and he said it didnt process. So he wanted to try again. He did and said it didnt go through again. So I paid in cash. A few days later I checked my a/c and found that the money had been deducted through my card. Now they are not responding to my email requests. I was there for only two nights. For for being duped, overall rating: Poor.

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
