We booked this last minute (3 days of arriving to San Diego) they were helpful on the phone. Andrew at reception was awesome helping us checking in answering questions and printing tickets for us. The private room was clean and comfortable, looked like new bedding and furniture. The bathrooms also clean. Great value for money and would recommend

Was clean and worth the amount. The only thing was the front desk person was terrible. Very rude! I had never been to a hostel so I was not familiar with the customs. I had asked politely what to do with the used sheets. His response was so rude! Told me " I don't understand?! Do you not sleep with... More

I went twice to this hostel and each time was great. I really enjoyed it. Bathroom and bedrooms are always very clean thanks to a great team that work well and is very easy-going and nice to talk to. The location is great, right in the center of Gaslamp, the best district in SD if you want to go out.... More

First time ever in a hostel and it was great! Room was a little warm but the whole building screamed unique. Loved the employees and fellow travelers I met there! There's a little nook that looked as if people had left books there before (a lot of German books too...), and there's so much natural light in the building. Only... More

The hostel is bright and welcoming. All of the dorms are clean, including the share bathroom and the staff helpful with local and tourist activities. I love the USA hostel group and would always try and stay with one of them over any other.

Friendly staff, clean rooms. Daily bathroom clean up. Daily activities with the hostel or on your own. Located in the gaslamp district( great place to go out). It's a bit far from the beach but I'd definitely come back.
