This was a last minute New Year Eve booking, so options limited, bottom of the barrel sort of speak! Been over 50 countries, countless hostels: staff was rude/indifferent, 16 people crammed into tight closet with 2 toilets (one was covered with a thin canvas and no lock 5ft from kitchen, imagine the sounds, smells!), nonresident friends of excon employee (bragged he's been in prison twice!) come/go. Location in safe, lively Cresthill being its only saving grace. Try hostels in Gaslamps!


Great stay at a really friendly hostel really convenient for everywhere in Hillcrest.


Perfect location in a coolest area of San Diego; Hillcrest and North Park! The hostel owner has a long traveller history, so he knows how to take care of his guests. Nice home-like atmosphere. I recommend to all of you!


the only think i dont like was the attitude front desk person

My only suggestion is that the beds could be a little thicker. They're a little thin, so not as comfortable. Also, a lock on the 2nd bathroom would be nice. Otherwise, great hostel overall.


This hostel is ok but do not expect something nice. The shower do not have any private room where to change and they are like the shower of a pubblic swimming pool. One of the bathroom does not lock.
