Great surf post spot

Tree house
Love this place. Great people, caring and shares like a family. A house away from home.

Heck I'd Come Back.
As near as I can tell there were about 20 people staying that night--a fair amount of people in the common area--a little awkward when you're new--a little rule breaking-smoking late in common area but was fleeting--a cigar. It was quiet when it was supposed to be. Parking turned out to not be a problem. Showers and bathrooms are co-ed but for the most part I saw only one problem the morning i was leaving--a friend of a guest took a shower--Management got on his case. I thought this place was close to the beach and restaurants but they are about 6-7 blocks away--some isolation cuz of that--bring your own shower towels or can buy a clean one for a buck. There is no cold beverage machine so bring water vessels for their icebox. wifi is excellent. Price of your stay is hard to beat.

OK, if just staying 1 night
Good service. Big thing missing in the room was a desk and chair. There is plenty of room for it.

Great hostel in San Clemente
House of Trestles is a perfect hostel for a solo traveler. Jonathan was a lovely host who made me feel welcome and cared for immediately. Everyone at the hostel was warm and welcoming, an excellent community to be part of. Clean, well managed, well maintained. Co-ed everything, just fyi. I would certainly stay there again.
