So we only stayed one night at this very nice hostel. But it was a much needed break from the other places we had stayed. I found it to be very peaceful, and I regret not staying longer in both the hostel and S.L.O itself. The hostel has a very 'homey' feel, especially in the loungeroom where you can just have time to relax and have a chat to other travellers or the very friendly staff. The hostel is only a short walk from the centre of town, and if you are trevelling by rail or bus (I forget the company, but they operate both as a rail and coach), it is close to the station as well. There is a computer for use by guests that is free which was a nice change.

But for me, the standout was the staff. Extremely friendly people who were more than happy to help out. When the taxi comapny failed to send a taxi that could take my surfboard, the owner of the hostel (whose name I have currently forgotten, but Justin is ringing a bell, but if that isn't right, I apologise) drove my friend and I to the bus stop. Legend.

There is also this rope and ball game that is worth a crack.

Great place to stay, will go back again for sure!

Room Tip: Of all the share rooms I have stayed in, this was by far the best.

This is the second time I have stayed at Hostel Obispo and I suspect not the last. They are gracious hosts, complete with coffee and pancakes in the morning! Clean rooms and friendly travelers make this the perfect place for social vagabonds. It is located a short walk from the train station and downtown SLO. Not used to staying in a hostel? Step outside your routine and spend a few nights in this great communal environment. You can't go wrong!

Staff is professional and helpful and are also really friendly and make you feel at home the minute you walk in! The place is great too. Its in a nice quiet neighbourhood next to the park and just minutes walk to downtown. There's a fireplace, full kitchen, dining and living rooms, even bikes and instruments to borrow. Not to mention they serve great coffee and sourdough pancakes in the morning! I think I'll stay a while!
