It was a few years ago I stayed and had the time of my life, loved the hostel so much I stayed for 3weeks! Brilliant staff and made many friends, great location too. If I had the money I would be straight back on a flight to SD and would love to stay here again. More

Very good place, rooms with only 4 people, very clean, has laundry service, great breakfast, very nice stuff. We stayed there for a few days and were very sorry to leave. Really loved this place. The location was also very good, about 1-2 blocks from a lot of restaurants and bars.

Stayed here for a few nights and it was amazing. Great location and facilities, especially the kitchen, and the food/beer nights were an unexpected and awesome bonus. Staff brilliant, efficient and friendly. Stay here!

I stayed at Lucky D's for 10 days whilst visiting friends in San Diego. Its the fifth or sixth time I have stayed there and I have always been impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, always clean toilets and showers and the free breakfast (and free evening meals a few days each week). I highly recommend a stay here... More

The location, situated downtown on 8th, offers perfect access to night time hot spots in the famous Gaslamp Quarter. The hostel is full of travelers eager to share and hang out and swap travel stories. The common room and kitchen was a great way to share and meet your neighbors. Friendly front desk staff, bikes to rent, and a super... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. I was a little cautious at first but that went away very quickly. It had great people from all around the world and the staff was just very comforting. I would like to thank every single person that made this stay just wonderful. I would highly recommend this place to everyone... More
