Thank you for your interest in our hostel. 

You can make reservations by phone or through our online booking system (above). All reservations require your first and last name, your email address, and a Visa or Mastercard to hold your reservation. We answer questions about our hostel through email, but we don’t make reservations via email.

Booking online through our online reservation system is a fast and easy way to make reservations for the Santa Cruz Hostel. Because we are a small hostel it is very easy to overbook space. This means that you can only book co-ed dorm space online—single gender dorm space, and private rooms can only be reserved by phone.

Checking online is the best way to figure out exactly what we have available for any given day. All private rooms, single gender dorm rooms, and co-ed dorm rooms can be reserved by phone. If we don’t answer please leave a message including your name, phone number, and what you would like us to know.

The office is open every day from 8am-10pm; Check in: 4pm-10pm. Our phone number is (831) 423-8304
