Stayed at the beginning of September in a private room and found the location excellent. Hostel would be ideal for individual travellers or groups but would not recommend for couples. Room was basic, which you would expect, but the lack of air conditioning effectively ruined our stay. Temperatures reached mid 30s and with only a ceiling fan the nights were... More

Great hostel to stay in for student travellers and anyone who is looking for a laid back, sociable place to stay! Great location in the Gaslamp District, where most of the bars/nightclubs are in Downtown San Diego. Staff were all very warm and friendly and provide either a meal or entertainment nearly every night! If you're staying in San Diego... More

Love this place!! I was in awe the whole time from the art everywhere. It takes hours to just admire it all. It was pretty clean nothing terribly nasty, but definitely not a well manicured hotel. It was my first hostile and if they're all like this, I'll always go to them!

Lucky D's is hands down the only hostel for me in San Diego. The staff are like family, and they do their best to make it feel like home. The facilities are always clean, the common room and TV room are decked out and the kitchen has everything you could ever need. On top of that, the hostel staff throw... More

First night was in a shared room, the sheet was covered with girls hair, was not clean, was disgusting. Few bathrooms for so many rooms, all bathrooms was mixed. Really poor quality, too hot inside rooms and too noisy. I didn't like at all. My second and third nights was in a private bedroom, the sheets was clean but the... More

We stayed at lucky D‘s for 4 days last year. The hostel is much cheaper than the other hostels in san diego, particularly USA hostels, which seemed too much of a bargain to not try. The hostel is however very old and tired. We stayed in a private room which was very dark and had an old fan providing the... More

The hostel was nice enough but I'm pretty sure my linen was dirty. The staff - for the most part - were very friendly and offered good advice. Especially Paul. The location was very good but the breakfasts were average. All in all I would probably stay there again.
