I'm grateful that the hostel is present in Sacramento, well placed, and well staffed. It is an honor to be part of the preservation of this gracious, historic mansion. I miss the photos of the old days in the diningroom .... but things change .... Thanks to all the friendly staff, volunteers, and donors who keep it alive!!!!

I loved it! This was my first visit to the hostel and I will definitely return. Beautiful building and everything is well taken care of. Great location! A small thing- maybe move the signs telling about the activities for the week, since they are not very noticeable. I didn’t see them until I’d been there a couple days already. I like the way there’s a compost bin as well as recycling. Thank you for the earplugs! Afternoon tea is really well done. Overall, excellent hostel and great value. Love!
