HI Sacramento hostel is an elegant 1885 Victorian mansion in the heart of downtown Sacramento, within walking distance of the Old Sacramento historic district, the Sacramento River, museum and the State Capitol. Need to go further? Why not raft down the American River, take a day trip to Gold Rush towns and Lake Tahoe or cycle the oak-lined American River bikeway.

For dining, guests may opt for the light-filled dining room (complete with chandelier!), or the outdoor patio with fountain, umbrella tables, and barbecue.
What travellers think
The hostel is gorgeous, the kitchen is grand, but we were kept up most of the night by the simplest of sounds: a neighbor's snoring, the bizarrely loud creaks made by someone simply walking to the bathroom. Also, the house isn't well insulated, so we were kept up by screams and fights (from the street). We had a private room, so we paid what we would've for an ordinary hotel. We'd hoped the extra $$ would buy us a solid night's sleep... We support HI but we probably wouldn't stay here again.

Too bad SACRAMENTO is just so boring which explains why I had to cut my stay short by a day, it could have been 2 days short. Very impressed with the location, the staff, and the accommodations. I am very impressed with the bedding. The other guests were excellent too. SACRAMENTO makes SALT Lake City ( City of Mormons ) extremely exciting. The 2 huge malls is a BIG PLUS.

Nightlife & entertainment tip
I went to a great talk at Sacramento State, ie. CSU in Sacramento. It was Valentine's day. Sex was the topic. I'm a public health nurse, so I especially liked her perspective.
