Very friendly staff and great facilities, along with being very tidy and clean. Thank you
Location was awesome, right next to some really cool bars, pubs and cafes. Room was clean, kitchen was lovely and the general atmosphere was brill!

I ALWAYS STAY HERE WHEN IN SAN DIEGO. EXCELLENT LOCATION IN GASLAMP DISTRICT, EASY ACCESS TO BUSES AND TROLLEY. STAFF IS EXTRADORINARILY HELPFUL. FREE BREAKFAST MORE THAN ADEQUATE AND THEY PROVIDE SOY MILK FOR THE VEGANS! BEDS ARE COMFORTABLE. BATHROOMS VERY CLEAN AND SANITARY. TWO SUPERMARKETS WITHIN 4 BLOCK AREA, RALPHS AND JUMBOS. ELEVATOR FOR EASY ACCESS TO SECOND AND THIRD FLOORS. EXCELLENT KITCHEN FACILITIES AND DINING AREA. EXTRA-LARGE TV IN MOVIE ROOM. TWO FREE COMPUTERS.
Staff so helpful. They are incredible. They went out of their way to be of assistance. The breakfasts and dinners are right on....wonderful bread, not the usual fluffy white stuff, soy milk for the vegans amongst us, fresh fruit, cereals, etc. and the dinner, Asian, Italian, etc., buffet style, perfect. Compliments to the chef! I rented the private room this time. It was very large. Lots of fresh air because I could open the windows. Private bathroom.
Really clean and modern facilities, more of a hotel vibe than a hostel. Probably not as good for meeting people and young travellers but good as a home base to check out San dieg as it's in the perfect location for food and bars.
Everything perfect. I stayed at Portland,Seattle(HI).....This was the third time to use this property.Very satisfied.
Awesome place, very clean, most staff are so so nice there's a couple who are weird though. Nice location. Good breakfast they do cereal and toast which is cool. Wifi in rooms and powerful hot showers. Beaut of a place
NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED IN HOSTEL: just wanted to state this fact. There is no indication of this fact when booking, I wouldn't have stayed here if I had known. Other than the no drinking rule, it's a pretty great location, for bars and restaurants, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It's about a 45 minute bus ride to the closest beach. No real common room where you can meet people in the hostel.
Mugs in the kitchen are too small, no milk, no sockets next to beds.
