I went to San Diego once in 2011 and again last March 2014... I never write reviews but I felt that I should because I absolutely love this place! I will definitely be going back as soon as possible. The free food and friendly faces were just what I needed during my spring break. Everyone was incredibly helpful in telling... More

Hostel is in a great location, cozy, as clean as you can expect, with friendly staff... But as there was no air condition in our room at all, just a small fan (with no effect), during the two nights we slept there it was like 30 °C (87 °F) in the room all night and it was almost impossible to...

The Hostel is very organized, clean and safe. The localization is very good: in downtown, near of restaurants, clubs, balboa park and Zoo. There are a lot of options to buy something, like stores and market. Downtown is safe too. Staff were very friendly. Room, kitchen and common room are very good. I also liked the breakfast (cereals, coffee and... More

My boyfriend and I had a private deluxe room. We enjoyed having our own room. The room was nice and clean. We had two fans in our room. One of them was very noisy which my boyfriend found a little annoying during the night, but it was our own choice to turn it on. The showers and toilets were clean.... More

I absolutely adored this hostel. My first stay I met new friends immediately and the hostel was very social in organising events to help everyone meet one another. The breakfast was decent, and by the end of my trip I was able to stuff my face enough that I could save money for lunch! The rooms did the job, my... More

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!

This was pretty much what you'd expect from a hostel. This is by no means a negative review, just want people to know what they are walking into! I mean what do you expect at $25 a night in DT!?! I think it's a pretty great deal. I read a lot of reviews before hand and they were all really... More

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
