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

We stayed here with our two kids (3 and 6). The staff were very helpful, the common areas were very clean and the outside courtyard was very pretty with fairy lights and lots of plants and a hammock and ping pong table. Our room was small but cozy and clean with double bunk beds. Everything worked well and you can't... More

I loved staying at this hostel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The family-like atmosphere made it a home away from home. My only problem was finding parking, and that can't really be helped. Nights were quiet and the my room was comfortable and cozy. I will definitely stay here again, and am looking forward to it.

Spent 4 nights at H.I. The location makes this hostel worth it. The property needs some updating but it works. It's close to many downtown restaurants and bars. It can get loud, late at night with guests coming late. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast is simple and good as well.

The staff was thorough in explaining how things work and what was expected. The rooms and bunks were very adequate. Meals were fun and very good. Location made it easy to get to local restaurants, library bars and downtown.
