Reserve Now

While walk-in guests are welcomed when possible, advance reservation is highly recommended to guarantee a place to stay when you arrive. If it is less than 24 hours until your arrival, please do not use our online reservation form, instead call the hostel directly @ (1) 530-546-3266 (Monday-Thursday: 9am-12pm and 4-7pm, Friday-Sunday: 8-11am and 4-7pm).
