Property Description

San Diego’s classiest hostel, in the premier Gaslamp neighborhood offers everything a backpacker or business traveler could want. Our recently renovated urban hostel offers shared and private rooms, free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast, comfortable spaces to meet new friends, and a worldly staff ready to provide you with the best hostelling experience.

Our hostel’s staff is in the strictest compliance with San Diego’s mandatory casual attitude, but don’t let their laidback style fool you— we work hard to provide our guests with a true “San Diego” experience. Our dedicated activities guru’s mission is to make your stay awesome. Check out our weekly events including free dinners, downtown and Balboa Park walking tours, pub-crawls, seasonal trips to the beach and more!

Here are a few of our ideas to enhance your San Diego experience:
• Spend a day at the beach – we can tell you where to catch the best wave, or sunset.
• Get international and take the trolley to Mexico – it’s only a short trolley ride away!
• Go on a brewery tour and taste why San Diego is Beer City USA.
• Get cultured at Balboa Park, home to world-class theatres, museums and the zoo.
• Dance the night away right outside our door in San Diego’s hottest clubs.

Getting here is easy – we’re walking distance from the Amtrak and Greyhound Station and easily accessible via public transportation from the airport or beyond.

Free breakfast is important to any traveler and we get up extra early to make sure you can start your day right. Always free and overflowing we serve local fresh-baked bread, cereal, oatmeal, peanut butter and jelly, fresh fruit, milk, soy milk, plus non-stop coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

There is tons of space to lounge around in and to make friends from all over the world before you hit the town. If you’re looking to relax after a long day of sightseeing (or after a great night out in the Gaslamp Quarter), you can chill out in our TV room, enjoy our game room which is fully equipped with a pool table and video games or share a meal in our fully equipped kitchen.

Our hostel offers shared co-ed and single sex dorm accommodations of varying sizes to fit your budget. If you’re looking for a little more privacy or comfort, we also offer private rooms complete with your own bathroom and air conditioner. We’re hostellers ourselves so we don’t compromise when it comes to comfort or safety. All of our rooms have Tempur-Pedic mattresses, secure lockers and enough plugs to satisfy the techiest traveler.

If there is anything we can do to improve your stay or feel like testing the staff’s knowledge – visit us at the front desk any time - we’re here 24 hours/day to help.

Latest Review

" It was terrific to stay at HI San Diego Downtown. The room and bathroom were terrific - spacious and clean. The common areas were friendly and inviting. Joe organised a terrific day for us at the beach. I highly recommend signing up to one of the organised activities. The street outside has lots of nightlife (restaurants and bars) and is noisy but if you can work around that, you'll love your stay. "
