This is a wonderful Hostel to stay at at the end of our Southern Tier ride. We are taking a three day break, before starting the Pacific Coast Route, San Diego to Vancouver, BC. The people here are very helpful and you get a great vibe. All ages are here, it is a safe and quite place to stay. The... More

We stayed for three nights in a double room and loved this place. OK, the room was tiny and the bathrooms were a little tired (though clean) but the place has a really friendly vibe (there were travellers of all ages from all over the world), feels safe & secure and has the best garden to hang out in and...

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
