Everything was great, really clean and beautiful old building - just the lockout during the day was inconvenient. Would be really good to be able to at least access a shower / bathroom when coming back from the beach in the middle of the day.

Cute little hostel right between Downtown and the beach with it all in walking distance. Staff, rooms, showers, all really good. Lots of free food is a big plus, too. But the curfew really bothered me. Apart from that it was a pleasant stay.

Loved the location of this Hostel. Needs designated parking though. Some of the staff appear to dislike helping older patrons and seem put out bt having to answer questions.

I am very glad the curfew now is midnight - it used to be 11 pm - that helps when you want to catch a movie.

The cottages were a lovely surprise as was the free food and beverages in the well equiped kitchen. The atmosphere was calm and peaceful and the setting lovely. Would definitely recommend hi Santa Cruz. Would suggest the hours of closure during the day be reduced. 11am-5pm is too long.

WiFi is only good in the main building. Guests should be warned not to leave entry doors open when not in dorms.

I love hosteling it when I travel and have experienced a broad range of quality at various hostels. HI Santa Cruz though was by far one of my favorites. I really loved the friendly staff and the guests who were traveling that I made friends with. Thanks HI SC!
