The hostel was clean and nice, the staff was helpful and nice, the beds make a lot of noise when people move, also would be great to have a small light for reading or checking in, because when we got in the room people were sleeping and we didn’t see enough to make our beds. The breakfast is really poor, no juice, no options for vegetarians/ vegan, but bread, eggs, butter, peanut butter,banana, apples, te and coffee. To expensive for offering that, also it was Friday and nothing going on, no hostel spirit

This is a really beautiful hostel inside an old house. I can't comment on the dorms as I was staying in a private room (using the shared bathroom) - my room was very clean however. There were no problems with the bathroom either, though be warned that the toilets and showers are in the same room (so not much privacy!). My final bill for the room was a bit more expensive then I was expecting - I assume this was because of the Hostelling International membership fee, which I was happy to pay, but it would have been good if this was clarified at reception. Otherwise I would definitely recommend this hostel for anyone needing to stay in Sacramento.

I found this beautiful mansion about 4 years ago and have stayed off and on when I am in the area for personal or business purposes. The Mansion itself is beautiful, and it is convienantly located for those who Travel from out of town or from Over seas. Most of the staff are wonderful. My huge issue is that they have become lax on their rules to the disadvantage of others who have come to stay. Recently I decided for personal reasons to take some time and stay at HI. The first day I was there, I was panhandled by a gentleman who did not have enough money to stay, in fact I had heard that this person had asked two others to no avail. The shift person was made aware, but seemed to do nothing about it and just let the man keep roaming the halls downstairs. My second major issue as I was put into a room with a woman who incessantly talks to herself. She also had gotten into the refrigerator and eaten other people's food and there was a huge red flag on her account! Was told by Management she was still allowed to stay only being banned from the Dorm Rooms. I asked her for a comp as I was going to stay another night but only given 5 dollars off. The second night I was there was okay, but than comes the 3rd night and the new person working the day shift puts her in my packed Dorm Room of which she was banned. I had to call down to the front desk to the shift person now, as it was obvious that message from Management was never relayed to her. What was supposed to be a relaxing problem free 3 night get away, turned out to be a nightmare. Management did not really seem to care and I feel the 5 dollars off was more of a placation. After this experience, I sadly will NOT be staying at this HI anymore.

The HI Sacramento is probably one of the most stunning hostels you’ll ever visit. Originally built by a gold rush millionaire, the house has seen better days but still retains an old world charm.

The communal rooms on the ground floor are comfortable and decorated in keeping with the style of the building - there’s lots of space to relax, a nice dining area (where a continental style breakfast is served between 7-10am) and a lovely porch with seating.

I booked a private room (dahling - what can I say, I like my comfort!). Called ‘the mother lode’ it was small but comfortable. Located next to the ladies bathroom, earplugs were essential - but hey, I’m quite sensitive to sound and always take them with me just in case).

The hostel wasn’t as sociable as I’d have liked - perhaps a victim of everyone in the communal areas being ‘plugged in’ to their devices. But the early morning breakfast crowd were a diverse bunch of people who were happy to chat and share stories and recommendations of places to visit. Those staying in dormitories reported that everyone was respectful and the dorms were also clean and tidy.

So, if you can cope with washing your own dishes and stripping the bed at the end of your stay, this is a good economical option in a really great central location. I’d definitely go there again.

Close to downtown, ten minute walk to Amtrak. Beautifully restored parlor house. Great common areas. Stayed in coed room that was eight men and my wife and me. What kind of coed room is that? Light rail and community theatre close.
