We are a charming, friendly hostel with the feel of a B&B. Located in a sunny, welcoming college town on California’s Central Coast, we are a convenient stay midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. We create a relaxed, safe, homestyle atmosphere for travelers of all ages and are just a few short blocks to the treasures of downtown. The area is ideal for the outdoor explorer with countless hikes, beaches and adventures cradling the town.

Not all rooms/beds are available for online reservations. Please call (805) 544-4678 or email reservations@hostelobispo.com to check for dorm bed and private room availability.


If you enjoy the homey vibe in San Luis Obispo, you can find more of the same at the seasonal, secluded hostel in Fullerton, just outside Los Angeles.
