I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights in September. It's clean, the bathrooms are nice and updated. I wish the water was a bit hotter, but it did the trick. The staff is friendly, there are lots of places to lounge, and they let me hang out for a better part of the day after I had to check... More

Looking back at our trip this was one of the best stayings. It was all clean, even the bathrooms. All new. Nice kitchen, nice staff and people. Close to Ocean Beach. Restaurants and grocery store just right across the street. Nice things like bikes and beach play stuff to rent.

One of my favorite hostel experiences here in the USA. Great location in a quiet neighborhood. Beach is about two miles away which was an easy trip by bicycle; I brought my own and they provide several racks for safe storage. Supermarket and library are both right around the corner. I stayed in the 4 bed female dorm and appreciated... More

This hostel had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in when staying at a hostel. I really liked the interior and everything was really clean. Probably one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed at as well. The location was pretty far away from everything and the bus stops running around 6 pm which was a bit inconvenient. I didn't... More

Great hostel, very clean, staff is more than helpful. Loved the pancakes for breakfast that they serve. You can hire bicycles from the hostel, they will bring it to you and come pick it up the next day. It is rather close to the airport so you can take a taxi and share it with other people from the hostel.... More

Stayed in this hostel for four nights whilst visiting San Diego. Was placed in a ten-bedroom mixed dorm, not my ideal scenario but it turned out to be good. I arrived in San Diego late on a Saturday evening via Amtrak and had no clue how to get from downtown to the hostel. However this was not an issue, I... More

The plentiful free street parking and the large kitchen island are the best features. The hard working staff puts out pancake mix to griddle your own. Plus fruit, granola and yogurt are yummy for brekkie with o.j. and the coffee. Because of the current drought in CA, the hostel discourages hand washing of dishes, cups, and utensils. Running the dishwasher... More

After a good hostel experience at the Mississippi River Headwaters State Park I decided to try it again. Over the weekend I stayed at the Point Loma Hostel. I was greeted by Danielle who was extremely pleasant and gave me a tour of the facility. Since my stay was over the weekend and during the summer the facility was quite... More

I stayed here on Memorial weekend. The hostel is located in a neighborhood area, so if you're looking for things to do, this may not be the best place. Public transportation was not very convenient (not a good thing when trying to get to the beach). They were working on the women's bathroom, so there was limited shower/bathroom space. The... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights. Overall our stay was very good just a couple of quirks as I have stayed in hostels before, there seemed to lack a bit of atmosphere around the place. This doesn't mean that the stay was not nice as it was just different to what I expected. It is a very quiet hostel... More
