HI - Sacramento


Housed in a beautifully restored 19th century mansion, Hostelling International's Sacramento Hostel offers old fashioned Victorian elegance with the comforts of modern amenities.

Dorms $22+, Private $34.50+

Known to historians as the Llewellyn Williams Mansion, the Sacramento Hostel is one of the last remaining Gold Rush-era buildings on historic Merchant Row, in the heart of the California state capital.

The hostel feels more "bed-and-breakfast" than "backpacker hostel," featuring a restored grand entry, lavish sitting rooms, hand-painted ceilings, wood paneling, chandeliers, stained glass skylights, and fireplaces with original painted tiles. A wraparound veranda, outdoor patio with umbrella tables and fountain, and beautifully landscaped gardens add to the mansion's historic appeal. On top of the marvelous antique architecture, the hostel provides guests with modern amenities including DSL Internet, free WiFi, a fully equipped kitchen, on-site laundry, and private parking. Both dorm rooms (between 4-9 beds) and private rooms with both shared and en-suite bathrooms are available.

The hostel is within a short walking distance to both the bus and train depot, as well as local attractions such as the State Capitol building, Old Town Sacramento, and numerous museums (several of them free every day of the week). Take a stroll through the up-and-coming midtown arts district, and take in all the galleries, restaurants, bars, shopping, and nightlife the state capital has to offer. Sacramento is also a short drive to many launching points for adventures on the Sacramento and American Rivers, from pulse-pounding whitewater rafting to mellow "tubing" floats through gentle currents.

The Sacramento Hostel is a unique and affordable choice for travelers of all ages to experience a rich cityscape, easy-going atmosphere, and top-quality attractions. Reserve your stay today!
