We have never stay anywhere like this, the hotel is like a community and very welcoming, the entire building is an art piece. If you enjoy art, this place is for you!! The environment left us feeling comfortable and relaxed, just what we needed. I plan to go back soon with my best friend for a “girls trip.”
I had a great stay. Met some wonderful people whom I will now keep in contact with can't get any better than that and Chris the general manager is awesome!!! it's good to go solo which I was it's good to go with friends but it's a very very cool place super down to earth and very comfortable.
Was out in the area for business and figured I would extend my trip over the weekend. Never been to San Clemente before, figured I'd book a hostel for more of a communal vibe plus I like the fact that they partner with surfers for (an additional charge) you can take lessons. Spent 3 nights in a private room. The room was great. The only thing I would mention as a "con" would be the highway noise. If you are a light sleeper I would suggest requesting a room that doesn't face the highway. Lee took me out Saturday for surf lessons. He spent a couple hours with me out in the water. As an extreme newbie to surfing he was extremely patient with me and was a great instructor to keep you motivated and pumped up both in and out of the water. Chris checked me in and out and was also available via text or phone if I needed anything. Overall, the staff, location, price, amenities - I couldn't have asked for a better stay! I will definitely be back. THANKS HOUSE OF TRESTLES!!!!…
House of trestles is filled with amazing and kind people who want nothing more than to make your stay as pleasant and meaningful as possible. From 2018 until now I have stayed here 3 times and it only gets better each stay. Thank you to Josh , Rose , Chris , Megan , Aaron , Welvis , Diego, Nestor and everyone else for making this stay so special.
Very rude manager. Everybody there was high and had NO CLUE how to provide customer service. You can smoke pot all day long but alcohol is not permitted. Probably a good fit for a 16 year old! Place seemed a bit seedy and dirty. Did not want to stay
