After a good hostel experience at the Mississippi River Headwaters State Park I decided to try it again. Over the weekend I stayed at the Point Loma Hostel. I was greeted by Danielle who was extremely pleasant and gave me a tour of the facility. Since my stay was over the weekend and during the summer the facility was quite full. My big requirements are a comfortable bed and clean restrooms. I had BOTH!! The hostel is located in a neighborhood and was close to the places I visited..downtown, the harbor area, Cabrillo National Monument, Point Loma Lighthouse, Mission Park and the airport.
I didn't spend much time at the facility because I was extremely busy being a tourist. Unlike the other hostel I visited most of the guests at this one were much younger than me. Everyone did follow the rules about quiet time which was good. All in all it was a good experience and well worth the $33/night.
