  • Facilities very small. Private room had no place for clothes. Not even a clothes hook. The common area only had seating for five people. A few folding chairs would have helped a lot. The breakfast was hotcakes period. No fruit. I felt that very little thought had been given to small things that would make the place a bit more comfortable. A simple map showing the location of the hostel in relation to places people might like go would have been nice.

  • The room we were given was next to the common area and we could hardly sleep at night because of late check-ins walking by with suitcases. No 24 hours check-in but lots of people were arriving in the middle of the night. As there are only a few hostels in SB they have no trouble finding guests but it really is a shame, you would expect so much more of a place like Santa Barbara!

  • This was a really nice hostel for our stay, although we only stayed there for two nights and spent most of our time in the city. Quiet in the night and overall clean. Compared to other hostels in US maybe somewhat expensive, but SB in overall seemed not to be a good place to save money.

  • Great job by the staff (Paul) in letting me know what there was to do in the area and cool spots to check out, especially food. Pancakes were yummy. Thanks! :)

  • The shower situation was completely unacceptable. I paid for access to a shower, however the faucet did not produce water, it produced steam.
