Waking up to the beautiful Pacific, with the most wonderful weather you could ever imagine. Also , if you appreciate art, good vibes, and healthy free breakfast in the morning this is where you want to be.
You can forget that your suppose to, at some point leave and when you realize it some sadness will envelop you (:
Bunk - stained sheets blankets a mess. Felt dirty and a mess. First reason I will not return. White sheets are white at hotels so they can be bleached and visibly clean. Common spaces are fine, also a bit of a mess. The crowd was not the surf crowd I was expecting - everyone was more into drinking. I was not interested in spending time there. It also appears people are living there which I found creepy. I left when the sun came up to surf (no idea what breakfast is like) and didn't return until it was time to sleep. It was not a place I wanted to be. Would be nice if they offered coffee. This place could be amazing. I have stayed in surf hostels in the past that are welcoming, clean and friendly. I didn't see any announcements or notice any events happening, but generally if someone was there to create an environment and connecting the visitors that would be great; also ensuring the spaces are clean and reflect the environment everyone is responsible for keeping up. It's all good you are into a grunge vibe. Not for me.
I liked many things in this location: convenience of the hostel, especially to the freeway, beach, outdoor activities & local sports accessibility & other touristic activities; the staff is very supportive & hard-working (especially Thomas*); the privacy & spacious room of the bunk bed, including the large storage space under the bunk; the very interesting & friendly guests from various backgrounds & cultures; and overall facilities. Nonetheless there are some areas of improvement! Hope this could be upgraded before my future stays.
Mostly comfort, entertainment & accessibility: would to have “my own” independent light, access to electrical outlet to charging my phone; a former pillow; some stackable baskets or shelves in my bunk bed to store my personal belongings; organized, comfortable space for walking in the dorm room & “uncluttered” areas. When I needed to use my bunk bed; I had to move personal belongings of my roommates (specifically from the one under my bunk bed) to be able to comfortably & easily reach to my bunk bed & I would have loved that this hostel offered some kind of entertainment activities, as others have in West Hollywood, for instance, such as comedic shows; perhaps some outdoor organized activities, such as bike tour, beach boardwalk, nite social activities into town would be nice, too.
When you stay at House of Trestles in San Clemente, you'll be on the beach, a 5-minute drive from San Clemente Pier and 10 minutes from Dana Point Harbor. Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, express check-in, and express check-out.
