I live in Missouri, my daughter lives in Australia, and was finishing college as we planned her wedding in San Diego. We had friends and family come in from all over the world and it was quiet the reunion! We stayed 10 nights in the hostel and had the rehearsal dinner there. We catered in a Taco Truck and the...

Hands down best decision I could have made. Went to San Diego for Work conference (but flew in early for mini-vacation also) and the hotel was crazy expensive so I searched for an alternative. Had never been to a hostel and was of course a bit skeptical. This was an amazing price and had 10x the amenities/awesomeness that some of... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and felt totally at home here. It's in a great location super close to ocean beach. There's supermarkets within walking distance. We had a hire car and there is free street parking, it can get busy at the evening but we always managed to get a spot. They have a wonderful kitchen and the... More

It's set up like a great hostel. Good security ( as long as guests close the compound door! ) fab staff, cleaning efforts great, all mattresses enclosed in plastic ( sanitary ) , all pillows encased in dust mite control cases - great. Breakfast is great time to meet others and watch visitors make their first ever pancakes ! Staff... More

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
