Before my trip to the US I never tried a hostel before. So I decided to try one, to see if I would like it. And I wasn't disappointed! The hostel looked nice and cozy. The bathrooms clean, and the bedroom was ok. I stayed in a four person mixed room, I don't think it had an outside window, although... More

I went to San Diego for the Comic-Con and the hostel is just few blocks away from the conference area, which is absolutely convenient. The hostel is clean and staff are quite friendly. If I have to say one flaw about the hostel, I'd probably pick the noise because this hostel is right in the middle of downtown San Diego.... More

The location of this hostel is really excellent , centred smack in the middle of the Gaslamp Quarter. Having stayed in USA hostels Hollywood a few nights previous we were looking forward to our stay here. Unfortunately the rooms did not quiet live up to their counterparts in LA. We had one fan for our four bed dorm and it... More

A nice hostel to stay at, especially if you're visiting in order to enjoy San Fransisco's night life. Clean place, mainly young people staying and helpful staff. Wouldn't recommend it for travelers not intending to do out and party cause, 1) noisy area and even more noisy if you have a room overlooking 5th Avenue, and 2) 9 out of... More

Nice location in a cool building, friendly staff... however, the hostel has too few bathrooms and they chose to clean them at times when most backpackers would be taking their showers, creating long lines...

Everything you would expect from a hostel with good feng shui. :) iPads for internet access is a nice touch. Don't miss the entrance as your walking down the block. It's sandwiched between two restaurants with outside seating.

Even though we are locals, my friends and I chose this place because it was cheap and looked fun...we couldn't have made a better decision! The people who stay are of course, foreigners, and they are so down to earth! Needless to say, we made some great friends in just one night. The staff, especially Mark, is also super friendly....

This hostel is all about safety, central convenience & an inexpensive bed. Rooms are small, dark, cramped, but beds are comfy, restrooms clean, kitchen useful. Friendly staff! Close to bus routes, Enterprise car rental, grocery store.

The San Diego Hostel is a great place! The valie-for-money is good and the location is pretty good in central San Diego. The Staff is really friendly and they are more than happy to give you advice what to do. A guy working in the reception, Mark, was really helpfull. We had unfortunately locked our keys inside our car and... More

I thought the staff were thoughtful considerate helpful and the free breakfast was great... the cozy open-air feel of the joint was extra exotic... I will very likely stay again with usa Hostels sometime soon!
