About the host

Our cozy, relaxing travel hostel is located in sunny Orange County, CA- there are beautiful beaches, delicious restaurants, and Disneyland nearby. We are 14 miles from the beach, 30 miles away from Los Angeles and 100 miles north of San Diego; it's easy to explore Southern California with a car. A bit more challenging by taking a train to LA or San Diego. You should volunteer at bamboo house if you like the hostel experience but in a relax...
