This has been by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff were friendly and willing to help. Laundry was cheap and they provided you with free soap. Lockers in the room were spacious. Great location in the gaslamp district. There were always activities planned and free pasta meals provided. It was a very social hostel for such... More

I spent one night at the Hostel and had a great experience. I met some nice people, the staff was super kind and the room was comfortable and had everything I needed! It's right downtown, so it's a good location!

Unlucky I've been there only one night, but it's enough to describe it as a nice, wonderful and funny place, right in the middle of San Diego's nightlife.. Emily at the reception desk will help you in a lovely check in or check out!! Enjoy!!

I chose to spend two nights in three different hostels in SD and USA Hostels was the best! The only things that can make it better would be an outside area and more mixing of people, ITH had free dinners to get people talking.

Room were a bit cramped, but it's great value for the price and location. Staff was friendly and helpful. Facilities were generally clean and functional. Free breakfast with pancakes and fruit and stuff! Was a bit warm inside in April, but they had fans and stuff. It might have been in that awkward phase between spring and summer where it... More
