Very convenient location, nice people, just minutes from the convention center. Definitely recommend staying here again. Understand it is a "youth hostel" so some people do stsy up late, but the management is respectful, and dealt with the complaints and issues others staying there had.

I stayed here for a few days whilst doing a whistle stop tour of Cali and had not seen enough of SD last time I was there. Being a sucker for craft beer it seemed like the perfect location. Luckily it turned out I was right as it is just a short walk from Petco Stadium where you will find... More

Very Nice hostel, very clean, very good atmosphere, super friendly staff (except for one Spanish girl at the desk who thinks she owns the place), great location. Big kitchen to cook your own meals, clean bathrooms and the common rooms are comfy and tidy. I really recommend this place!

The hostel is a steal!!! At that price at such location, I bet you can’t get it. The location and the price are the best and the most attractive part of the hostel. You are just minutes away from Glasslamp Quarter and Public transport to travel to the rest of the city. The people at the reception are great. They... More
