I loved the location only two blocks from the beach, there was a relaxing coffee shop right on the strip with ocean view. The people are very friendly in Santa Cruz. My bunk roomies were very considerate and polite, for bunk beds I was very comfortable and warm. This place was perfect for what I needed, I was in town for the weekend to visit my son at UCSC. Cute clean comfortable place to stay.
