Our 'vision' for 2020 was nothing like we planned!!  We had plenty of cultural dinners, tours and group programs on the list that we put on hold for now.   We passionately believe that hostels play a pivotal role in cultural exchange and acceptance all over the world and hope that we can return to our international travelers community as soon as it is safe.  

 In the meantime, we are grateful to provide independent cottage accommodations to essential travelers as outlined in our Regional County Covid orders.  

Looking forward to seeing you in 2021!



Comprised of 5 renovated Victorian beach cottages, the Santa Cruz Hostel has the ability to accommodate individuals, families and groups are welcome to stay in separate cottages with plenty of social distance in our gardens.  

Covid 19 has changed our layout and the way we offer our accommodations.  Sharing of cottages is no longer allowed.  We have 5 completely separate cottages for short or long term stays.  Each has a different range of amenities including kitchens, living rooms, full baths, dining areas and even a piano for you to play!
