Really good hostel, centrally located in downtown close to bars, restaurants and shops. The staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. The rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable. We had to share the showers with other guests, however these are cleaned every hour by the staff so they were always spotless. Lucky D's is...

Like most of the reviews here I couldn't recommend it more. Luisa and Marta in particular made my stay. Activities arranged every night and so there's always something going on. And San Diego is a fantastic city to visit.

Great time, clean rooms, hot showers and friendly staff. Stayed for a week on the tail end of my holiday and had a great time, common room always gets exciting after 8, tv room is great for hulu and Netflix when you're hungover, girls on counter are all qt3.142. Special thanks to Frank allesandro, Dan and jessica. Hey Arnold.
