This hostel was a great experience overall- my boyfriend and I loved our room, and the bathrooms and kitchen were really clean and accessible (despite some remodeling!) The only con is that it is LITERALLY impossible to get back to this hostel at night using mass transit, and cabs in San Diego cost a fortune. We got stuck a few times downtown- which was not fun. If you want to hang at ocean beach, this is the place for you. Otherwise...I'd go for a hostel in a more convenient location.

Wifi was to slow. Overall very well kept, You didn´t have to do your dishes by yourself, witch was a good thing.


Overall a really nice hostel with comfy beds, friendly staff and good atmosphere. The only negative comment I have is about the shower facilities. When we were there the women showers were being renovated, so two floors had too share one shower... that resulted in having to wait in line several times which was a bit annoying. Even after the renovation is done, I would still assume that more showers are needed when the hostel is full. It would also be nice with WiFi in the rooms/dorms.

Thank you so much for your review. We truly appreciate your comments. I apologize for the inconvenience of the shower renovations. I hope you will give us another try once the renovations are done. It is going to be really nice. There will be three showers and three toilets in the new bathroom along with 5 sinks. The completion target date is May 20th, 2014. We are also installing this month a new internet system that will allow guests to get free WiFi in the rooms. Cheers, Jenny


One of the best hostel I have ever been to.

Thanks so much for your amazing review!


Matresses from hell, but clean beds and rooms, nice staff. Atmosphere a bit boring, smoking and alcohol not allowed inside the hostel.

Thanks so much for your comments. We truly appreciate and value your review. I am so sorry for your experience with our mattresses. I wonder if the mattress was flipped the wrong way. Sometimes this happens accidentally. They are tempurpedic Mattresses donated by tempurpedic. Cheers, Jenny

I really like the hostel because the staffs are very kind, friendly, cool and helpful. The facilities are prefect. The Wifi also good. The hostel also closes by bus top to go downtown. I also can walk to go Ocean Beach.

We loved having you stay with us. Thanks so much for your great review. Next time you are in town try our fun new free Sunset Cliffs photo excursion. Cheers, Jenny


Staying at Hostelling International San Diego, Point Loma was a great experience, both me and my fiance enjoyed our time. We'll definetly consider staying there again. It's avery quiet and nice neigbourhood, not so far from the beach. (We had a car but it's possible to walk) The staff is very friendly. Wish they had private bathroom options though. I'd certainly recommend it!
