Our Approach
Our goal is to provide a safe place for you to rest your mind/body/soul while traveling.

We want the Santa Cruz Hostel to feel like home while you are traveling – this may be hard to do but we hope the experiences you have while visiting us are something you can remember for a lifetime.

What You Can Expect From Us
Our goal is to provide a place you can rest, shower, prepare your meals, and have coffee with people from around the world or maybe even from your hometown. As staff we try to do the best we can to give you the best experience while you visit Santa Cruz.

What We Would Like From You  
Treat others as you want to be treated. The hostel is a communal space– this includes guests, staff and our neighbors. Clean up after yourself; leave the space better than you found it.

Those With Digital Devices
We understand that you want to stay connected to your loved ones, but please respect others and keep phone calls short in common areas and turn ringers off during our quiet times. Take advantage of the social atmosphere of the hostel in place of your cell phone or Laptop computer.
