Top tips for finding Sacramento hostel deals

  • 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. There is a long list of important landmarks nearby, such as the California State Capitol building, Cesar Chavez Park, and the Historic Governor’s Mansion. The Old Spaghetti Factory and Alaro Craft Brewery are places to dine and enjoy drinks a few blocks away.
  • Whole.Styl One on 12th Avenue is another small hostel in Sacramento with limited accommodations; this hostel offers nine shared rooms and one private room with a shared bathroom. Among the listed attractions close to this property are the California State Railroad Museum, Crocker Art Museum, and Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park. There are buses along 14th Avenue and Stockton Boulevard, which are the main roads in the neighborhood. Church’s Chicken and Café Colonial are a couple of eateries that you can choose from.
  • About 8 mi outside the city center on Ascot Avenue in Rio Lindo, North Sacramento, is the White River Inn, which offers free parking and three private rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. This property is very close to Sacramento McClellan Airport and the Aerospace Museum of California at McClellan Park. The California State Capitol is a 20 min drive away. There are a few places to eat on Rio Linda Boulevard, including a MacDonald’s and Little Caesar’s Pizza; or you can choose to explore for something more original and substantial.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hostel in Sacramento, you should consider going during the low season. You’ll generally find lower-priced hostels in Sacramento in November and June.
