“Cute Hostel, great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2008

Very cute hostel, in a great location to explore cambria. We stayed for one night at the end of June as we drove down Highway 1. The Hostel itself is great, very clean bathrooms and bedrooms, we stayed in room 2. It seemed to be mostly couples staying at the hostel, which made it feel more like an Inn. I would recommend this hostel to anyone travelling through Cambria, but be warned, Cambria is a very sleepy village, everything seemed to be shut by 9.00pm!

  • Liked — That it was a small hostel, great location and price!
  • Disliked — nothing!

We came up from San Diego for New Years weekend 2006-07. A great place to stay, the owners, Anne and Paolo are great hosts, and very committed to an environmentally friendly, community focused atmosphere. Buster, the manager, was helpful, and a great guy! We enjoyed our room immensely, it was a steal for $70/night, we stayed in the side room with queen bed usually reserved for staff, it includes a bathroom with sink and toilet and has a private entrance, in addition, it was right near the communal shower and kitchen, an ideal location, ask if the room is available, it is of exceptional quality. We had a great time touring the little town of cambria, the paso robles wine country (go to eberle winery, it was a great tasting and tour), and biking along highway 1 by moonstone beach. Lunch at the cafe with the blue moon hanging above the door was delicious! I don't recommend the mexican restaurant on the main drive, cheap tequila in the margaritas (and I ordered a top shelf drink), and cheap bottled salsa served as a side, overpriced and not too tasty!

Had a lovely stay at Bridge Street Inn. This is an adorable old house that has been converted to a hostel / B&B. The inn is one block away from downtown Cambria's many shops and restaurants. Cambria is very convenient to Hearst Castle, the scenic highway 1 / big sur drive, and the elephant seals. I stayed in one of the private bunks for $20 a night, including tax. That rate basically gives you a twin bed with a curtain you can pull around the bunk, giving you complete privacy. You also get a reading light and fresh linens. There are private rooms available that are very nice, but go for around $45-60 per night. There are several bathrooms in the house that everyone shares, but it is never a problem to find an empty one. Coffee and bagels/toast were provided in the morning. There is a great living room where you can sit around the fire and most likely meet someone from another part of the world. Plus, there is free wi-fi. The place is truly a unique and fun place to stay. I highly recommend it. Great for anyone who wants to feel at home when they are away from home.

We'd not seen any review of this place on Tripadvisor, but the Inn's own website made it sound very different from the larger, more anonymous hotels we were going to be staying in. Also, it was very good value, and we wanted to try somewhere where there was more chance to meet hosts and other guests (the rooms are not en-suite, you make your own breakfast in a communal kitchen, and you share the living area with the hosts). We booked 2 months ahead, as it was a weekend. It was a good experience - the hosts are friendly (and tell you things about Hearst that you don't hear on the official tour !); it was interesting to chat with the guests who were visiting from Japan; there was never a problem with waiting for bathrooms or kitchen equipment ('though the place was only half full); it's very quiet, but very close to several excellent restaurants and cafe's, and only 10/15 minutes drive to Hearst Castle. Some of the less-used surfaces and corners of our room were a bit dusty - but, with such good value and the Inn's many other good points, this wasn't a problem. Shared living area & kitchen are locked during day, but you have a key that lets you in to get to your room and the restroom. Not a place for those that want luxury and lots of their own private space; very good for everyone else.

Really friendly B&B run by professional hippies. Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The communal kitchen and living room offers a great chance to meet people and it's right in Cambria so you can walk to the shops and restaurants.

I went for "inexpensive" over "luxury" and I'm glad I did. This comfortable and charming inn/hostel was a great find.The rooms are sunny and bright, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the price can not be beat! The inn is located on a VERY quiet side street, a block from a cute main street area with antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, a grocery store, a pharmacy or two, a bicycle shop that advertised bike rentals, and other small businesses. The innkeeper recommended me to Robin's for dinner, which was expensive (well, by my standards) but SO worth it.You're not at the coast, here, so if you are looking for the sound of waves, this isn't the place. You're not far away, though, and the shore at Cambria was one of the most beautiful sights along the coastal highway.And this is a hostel, so if you want a king size featherbed, a private whirlpool bathtub, and a full breakfast (that you didn't cook yourself), this isn't the place for you either... but if you would rather save yourself $100 or so a night (maybe you could buy *three* meals a day that you didn't cook yourself!) this is a great choice.
