I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ITH BIG BEAR!!! I've traveled to many countries and have stayed in many hostels and I still believe that this hostel is my favorite. The rooms are very clean and tidy, the staff is wonderful and often great conversationalists, they offer DINNER AND BREAKFAST and have a lovely fireplace and seating area! THANK YOU for such a wonderful experience - I will be back again soon.

Hidden Gem in Southern California. The complimentary dinner and breakfast were amazing. All the staff were extra helpful. The location is ideal for people from San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, etc. Also there is an apple tree with mini apples! Definitely will recommend this place for anyone who wants a nice escape from the city. The staff will go above and beyond to ensure you have a pleasant stay. 🙂

Really neat place with a volleyball court, hammock forest, great location and more. I visited in the summer and the staff was super friendly! They gave me some great hiking recommendations. I cannot wait to come back and visit in the winter. This would also be a prime spot for ski season. Highly recommend. Also Beware of Yogi the watchdog, he welcomed me with a ball in his mouth lolol.
