We are closely monitoring the rapidly changing events related to COVID-19.  The well-being of our guests, staff and community are our number one priority. During this unprecedented time, we wanted to let you know that we have been required to alter our standard operations but are taking the necessary steps to keep you and our staff’s health as our top priority. Please contact the hostel property you booked directly to confirm your reservation and any adjustments which may need to be made.  We want to thank you in advance for putting your trust in ITH as you plan your future travel.

Booking Flexibility & Cancellation Policy
Given the rapidly changing guidelines and restrictions, we have been adapting our cancellation policy to be as flexible as possible.  We want to assure you that you can travel with ease and stress free.   Please contact us as soon as possible if you feel your travel plans will be changing.  If you made a reservation through a travel agent or online booking platform (e.g., Hostelworld, AirBnB, Expedia) please contact them directly and you should refer to their terms and conditions.

Tips For During Your Stay
Sanitizing and providing a social distance for our guests is a top priority.  We recognize that the COVID-19 virus has required all of us to be more mindful as we go through our regular activities. Our hostels are working to ensure that we meet the latest guidance and recommendations including these additional COVID-19 specific cleanliness protocols.  We are closely monitoring updates by the CDC and local health authorities to ensure the actions we take are suitable for the evolving environment.

You can learn more about the latest updates and restrictions for California by visiting, COVID 19 California updates.  Thank you for your trust in staying with us, and together we will overcome this challenge and return to healthy and happy traveling.
