Best Sacramento Hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Sacramento hostel

There are very few hostels in Sacramento, so if you find availability at any of them, it’s a good idea to book your reservation to secure lodgings early. A couple of them can be found in downtown Sacramento, which has good modes of transportation: RT provides light rail service and an extensive fleet of buses that cover the entire city, and there is Yolobus and Amtrak as well, if needed. Among the various places of interest in the city center are the California State Capitol, the California Museum, and Memorial Auditorium.
The most obvious choice for hostels in Sacramento is HI Sacramento on H Street downtown. This property is a refurbished mansion that offers guests a choice of private rooms, same-sex dorms, and mixed dorms, many of which have shared bathrooms.
