Stayed here back in October. The hostel is great, they have nightly activities and the staff do a good job of showing you around. We went out for their club night and were a little nervous about being taken to a crappy club. They took us to Barracuda with a nice roof top patio and it had a very healthy mix of girls to guys. They got us in no hassle and cover free. We stayed in a dorm room that they let us have as a private. The rooms are okay beds a bit old and linen a bit tired but it's what you expect from hostels I guess.
Location is good, a short walk to gaslamp but if you walk 3 blocks up to 10th ave your going to see nothing but bums. They're harmless but don't bother walking up walk down.
If you had a car like we did, you'll hate San Diego's stupid parking lots. You can't seem to buy a 12 hour parking pass, just obscure times like 8 hours and you can't buy 2 of the tickets. No 12 hour or 15 hour. So if you are like us, who park there car around 8pm, want to start drinking and not move our car until 9am in the morning your out of luck. There is free street parking but you need to be out by 8 or 9 and it is hard to find close to weekends. There is a small lot behind the hostel with a person attending it to collect $. Throw him a few extra bucks and you can park until the morning.
They had some all you can drink night for some really small amount I think $10, we didn't do it but apparently it's really easy to break even.
The hostel didn't have many people when we were there, but the staff took us out to good places, some went to go visit the USA hostel but we didn't bother.
The place could use a few more bathrooms, thats all I can add.
I'd stay here again.
