I ended up staying at Lucky Ds out of sheer chance - I arrived in San Diego late and needed a place to stay. Unfortunately I could only stay a few nights but in my short time there I found it to be one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Very clean rooms, friendly staff (special shout-out to Michael...

Stayed here for 4 nights in a private room shared bath. Room was nice, had a fridge, TV and two fans. Share bathroom were cleanish (ladies please take your hair out of the drain when you finish in the shower, it's not that hard) and the shower was to die for, best shower head and pressure. After having so many... More

Good hostel, nice vibe, they should improve the cleaning, the room was quite dirty and the light was broken. Great position, however I prefered other areas of San Diego. To be honest, I wouldn't choose it again, although the overall experience was quite positive

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
