Location is amazing!!! You can't ask for more. We stayed in a private double room so I can only comment on this. The room was big enough, comfy, sheets and towels provided. Bathrooms are shared but clean and we didn't have any problems with too many people using them or anything like that. Staff is friendly and nice. We didn't... More

Staff were uber friendly here and it's a great place to meet people. We had a double room which was fine, basic but comfortable and decently decorated with towels etc. bathrooms were clean and shower was powerful and hot. Location was good and just round the corner from a couple of brew bars and restaurants.

I just got back from Lucky D's and I had a great time! The hostel is in a great location, and easy to get around town. The Hostel itself has a cool vibe, and is unique from all other hostels I have stayed in. The staff is excellent, and very friendly. Bruno the Brazilian staff member went above and beyond... More

Lucky D's hostel has a great friendly vibe and is in a good location. Staff are always helpful and make an effort to keep your trip entertaining every evening, especially Jessica who helped me out multiple times with my reservation. There's also some really great deals on drinks most nights of the week and having a common room, TV room... More

This place was so much fun. Our four bed dorm had a lovely breezy big window with a view and comfy beds and there were fun things to do every night like a free taco Tuesday and $5 all you can drink nights. Great common room with beer pong, drinks fridge and iPod dock too. We came back two days... More

I chose this hostel because it is close to where I have to spend most of my time in (a conference) and because of its relatively affordable price. However, the room was not clean and was with a strange smell, one screen window was not securely attached. The front desk could care less about what your room had problems with.

I stayed here in during Comic Con in 2014. The room was clean with enough outlets and lockers, but it got really hot at night; having the fan on and the windows opened helped a lot. Considering the hostel was fully booked, the bathrooms were nice/clean and I didn't have to wait long for the showers.

Hi there! Thank you for your note, Christine Liz. Planning on coming back for Comic Con again down the line? We'd love to welcome you to stay with us again. Maybe this time San Diego will muster up more of a breeze! Take care, Pete More

One of the best hostels we stayed in on our travels. We stayed in a private room and it had everything we needed, really comfortable bed! The staff here are so helpful and friendly and the place has a really good atmosphere for students or backpackers travelling around California!
