The location of this hostel was perfect for me. Right next to the ocean and a short drive to Montara State Beach and Half Moon Bay. Pacifica is only 5-10 minute drive away. Nice coffee shops near by. Staff is very helpful and friendly. I...More

Thank you for your thoughtful review! So glad you enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of our hostel and got to experience the local area while you were here. Looking forward to having you stay with us again soon!

Big Minus: that you can't check in before 3.30pm and you cant even use the bathrooms or common areas before you check in. They said its gonna...More
This was the perfect place to start my California road trip. It's only about 20 miles from San Francisco International Airport, so after a long flight from the East Coast, it was a relief to know that all I had to do was pickup my...More

We didn't use the bunk and I was glad. It seemed like a really small bed that folded down from the wall above the double bed. I don't remember how you would climb up there. I felt claustrophobic in the little room (cured by opening the window and listening to the ocean) but I think having someone sleep over my head would have made me restless (and I have slept in lower bunks in the past)

The website says, "Our shared dorm-style rooms sleep up to 6 people per room. Both co-ed and gender-specific rooms are available." I don't know how many dorm-style rooms they have. We had a private room, of which I think there were 4. Better ask the hostel directly. I'm sure they can give you the information.
