The hostel staff are efficient and knowledgeable. I particularly enjoyed how clean and quiet the room is. I made new friends and took great photographs of the Capital area. I look forward to recommending HI Sacramento to my European acquaintances.

I have not stayed at a hostel before and was not sure what to expect. I enjoy staying in a particular environment and just thought hostels were not my cup of tea. I will quickly say that I was wrong. I did upgrade from a dorm setting to a double bed with a private bath. I do draw the line... More

Sacramento Hostel International is the best kept secret you will be glad you found. The staff is incredible. But the building is part of its allure, with well placed amenities neatly tucked away within this beautifully preserved mansion. Breakfast gets you ready to go, and a great location to boot. Careful, you might even walk away addicted to their mint... More

For my first time in Sacramento, I couldn't have imagined staying at a better place. I stayed in a dormitory with my co-workers for a business trip, which was clean. Staff was friendly and welcoming from the first moment we walked in. The bed sheets, blankets, and towels they provided were comfortable. The shared bathroom was decently clean, and I... More

From the moment I walked through the door I felt good. They were preparing for Halloween so there were decorations everywhere. All the staff are friendly & helpful. The rooms are spacious & clean. The shard bathrooms are a little dated but they are clean & the shower has really good pressure. Breakfast is plentiful. The atmosphere is just the... More

Great 19th century building, very impressive. I slept on the dormitory with shared bathroom: bed was not bad and bathroom was clean. Breakfast to improve a little in my opinion but is good by the way. Beautiful living room to meet people all over the world. I passed a good time and location is close to Old Sacramento, Capitol and... More

As far as US hostels go, this one is pretty nice, with spacious, relaxed common areas. I stayed in a private room and it was cute and comfortable. The other options as far as I could tell in Sacramento were pretty slim - overpriced bed and breakfasts, drab chain hotels, or motels with rooms overlooking parking lots and roadways, all... More

The hostel is located in Downtown Sacramento and close to some restaurants. The main attractions of Sacramento are also a short walk away (apart from Sutter's Fort). The staff is very very friendly. We were greeted like old friends and they had many tips on what to do. Also, when our train was departing at 12am, they allowed us to... More

I stopped here overnight between my travels from Yosemite to Sacramento International Airport. I so loved this place. They have private rooms which cost a little more or the dorm rooms...This was my first hostel and although I was leary about the dorm room for an overnight stay and the price being right....I was very pleasantly surprised...I slept well and...

Stayed one night in May - excellent facilities - staff members were top notch - so welcoming and knowledgeable - great location downtown - within walking distance of restaurants and nightlife - very clean - the building itself is an attraction - Victorian mansion with all the 'trimmings'!
