Our group (Sleep Hollow Presbyterian Church’s Mexico Mission Team) has taken over this amazing hostel for one night on our return trip back to Northern California for multiple years now. It is the perfect layout, safe, clean and inviting for our group after a very hard and exhausting week of physical labor. After a week of building homes for families... 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...

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

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.
