6.2 Okay
Cons:light switch didnt work nor did the bathroom fan
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Obviously there are changes due to COVID, but it was an great stay!!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Hip and fun; great location
Cons:The water tastes weird; the perfect view of the freeway
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:But it had amazingly comfortable beds. The decor was fancy, the bathrooms were very modern - I see why it was a little more pricey than average hostels. Had a tv in the room, and with decent channels! Location is prime. Had nightly activities but the night I was there, it was cancelled because not enough people wanted to do it.
Cons:The price
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:Rooms are not huge but comfortable, new and clean. Staff was very helpful and polite. The proximity to everything--wine tasting, breweries, restaurants, the beach and all the shops on State St could not be better. Also close to the train station.
Cons:no complaints at all.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:We loved the boutique feel of the wayfarer. The quirky designed reception area, mermaid wallpaper in the bedrooms and state of the art kitchen facilities. Location is perfect to explore Santa Barbara. Staff were super helpful. Great value for money.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:*The decor was awesome *The room was immaculate *The staff was super friendly *Free coffee / water / kitchen access *Free breakfast *Very funky space with a big library, board games, and fun activities planned (there was a bar crawl going on the night I got there) *THE POOL! *Super close to the train - 1.5 blocks walking *Great use of space in the room, including cabinets built into the headboard
Cons:The room, though immaculate, was TINY. I live in NYC, and this was small even by NYC standards. The bathroom floor doubled as the shower floor, which actually worked out rather nicely, but it was an odd adjustment. The space was great for one person, but I'm glad there weren't two of us staying there.
