My friend and I stayed at Lucky Ds hostel last week for two nights....the guy who checked us in, Justin, was super sweet! He gave us the lowdown on everything we needed to know about staying there...Brion, also super sweet, carried my obnoxiously heavy suitcase up 2 flights of stairs like a champ! Lucky Ds is a wicked cool place... More

I am so glad to have had my first hostel experience at Lucky D's. The staff is amazing, the dorms are cozy, and they serve dinner a few nights a week, plus have social gatherings and fun stuff going on all the time. I have been lucky enough to find a spot here during busy times in San Diego, and... More

Great place, it's huge so you never have problems with accommodations. The staff is really great and the free cereal breakfast and sometimes even dinners are great thing for budget travelers. Location is good and convenient. Definitely thumbs for this one!

I really enjoyed being here. the hostel is in downtown San Diego - a perfect location when you like to go out and do sight seeing (very central). Unfortunately it's very noisy on the weekend. The price for a female dorm was okay but could be cheaper especially for students ;) The staff members were really friendly and obliging! Marie... More

I was in that Hostel for 2 nights and I had a good time there. The people are really friendly and the rooms are clean and good. Only the street is a little bit noisy, but the rest is okay. We went out every night and enjoyed the nightlife in San Diego. If you wanna have fun, thats the place... More

I highly recommend here compared to my last hostel experiences. No staff made us food except here. Also, this is closed to gaslamp street so you can easily enjoy night life. they gave a nice map to go around the city. Nice pictures on the walls

this is hostel with artistic theme. looks very cool inside and the location is perfect if you wanna party at the gaslamp district. it's literally 5 minutes from there. they don't have parking, but if you go few blocks away you can find street parking for free. the only complaint i have is that our room was extremely noisy, because...

This place was awesome. Awesome art all over the place and they have music on constantly which was always good. The pub crawls were really great, there was a lot of choice! Amica was the best host and she was British so that is always a plus! Social aspect of the hostel was the best we have had so far... More

Great service by the staff, good vibrations all around, this place is quite cool. Facilities are clean, but more important - even as a dorm-dweller, you've got access to bathrooms and showers that grant you privacy. Wi-Fi access is good, and many computers are available, as well as pub crawls.

If you love the nightlife then Lucky D's is in the perfect location! There are so many options around the Gaslamp District. The hostel itself has it flaws. There were only 2 showers and 2 toilets for a floor of at least 50 people. Its a bit old and the staff were pretty unhelpful and didn't show much interest. They... More
