The HI Hostel in San Luis Obispo is in a normal residential area and it's a converted house. There is parking around the back and I had no problem parking there. Beware that there's not a whole lot going on in the area. Luckily I had a car so I drove to Denny's for dinner.
This hostel is a converted house and you notice it the moment you walk in. The first thing you see is a large common area, dining table and kitchen. Front desk is small and check-in was modern with a tablet where you had to sign for payment. Well thought of!
I was given a room on the ground level and it was a dorm room in the front of the building. It was extremely tiny. It fitted 2 bunk beds and then there was 50 centimeters between both beds. There was barely room to store your luggage or even to stand! This is the smallest dorm room I have ever stayed in. There's hardly any room to change clothes. It would be better to remove one of the bunk beds to create a room that's not claustrophobic. There's also no lock no the door.
I left early in the morning, so I did not use breakfast. I think some kind of breakfast was offered for a small donation.More
