Was my first time at a hostel, so I was not familiar with hostel customs. When first arriving at the hostel the staff member at the front desk was very rude! So rude I almost decided to go somewhere else, but being that it was late I stayed. The staff member handed me clean sheets and gave me my key.... More

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.

Staying at USA Hostel San Diego was a great experience. The staff was really friendly and helpful, the bathrooms were always clean, the atmosphere was calm and quiet. The free breakfast and dinner were also useful when we didn't have time or energy to find a place to eat. I would recommend this hostel to everyone.

I enjoyed this hostel for the 1 night I was there. The front desk guy (Henning) was really nice and very helpful. The kitchen was big and clean and bathrooms were clean as well. Worst part about the hostel was the lack of air conditioning and not enough fans in the rooms. The all female dorm room I stayed in... More
