San Luis Obispo is a charming, friendly hostel, located in a sunny, welcoming college town on California's Central Coast, and is a convenient stay midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, just 12 miles to the beach.

This hostel has a fully-equipped kitchen, lounge with fireplace, piano, guitar, board games, and outdoor garden patio with BBQ.

San Luis Obispo features many cafes, theatres and coffee houses offering live entertainment almost every night. While staying at Hostel Obispo, you can explore tide pools at Montaña de Oro, bird watch at Morro Bay, rent kayaks at Shell Beach, hike the many hills and canyons surrounding the hostel, go surfing at one of the four beaches in the county, or bike along the coastline. For an indoor experience, you might attend a concert at the Performing Arts Centre or visit Hearst Castle which is 45 minutes away.

Loved staying at this hostel! The staff were super friendly and helpful. Would definetly stay again. Just a shame that the pancakes aren't gluten free :(

Hostel ist jeden Tag von 11am - 4.30pm geschlossen. Obwohl die Leiter des Hostels anwesend waren, mussten wir bei unserer Ankunft vor dem Hostel warten und durften nicht rein. Schlechter Service!! Dorm hat für 6 Betten nur 2 grosse Lockers..macht wenig Sinn. Lage gut, nahe an Bhf. u. Innenstadt. Komfort und Sauberkeit ok, aber nicht HI-Standard.
