Hawthorne is great. I have fond memories and good experiences of the staff. Everyone there is accommodating and for reasons out of their control, fun people are drawn to it. The house is immaculate and I have thorough and deep conversations there with people such as the dude from Central Europe who told me about robotics tech, a Bay Area composer young woman, and the talented guitarist from the Midwest. I especially like the helpfulness of the staff in recommending the art tour and letting

I loved the location and overall personality of this hostel. I only wished that the staff had more of a preference for recommending local faire. I love recommendations by locals for brew and food, I felt a lack of passion from the staff when I inquired. Otherwise a great place. Remember that you can reserve a bed, which I did not know and as a traveler who is nearly 60, I prefer a lower bunk, but still enjoyed my stay!
