There is NO air conditioning in any of the rooms, despite what it says under 'Facilities' on Hostel World. The rooms are like saunas and was unbearably hot and sweaty in the rooms. The staff are not friendly at all. We stood in the lobby for 30 minutes before some girl came up and told us to wait another 5 minutes, then walked off. We then waited another 10 minutes for a guy to come down to check us in. While we waited we missed out on the hostel dinner. The breakfast was really bad too.

Hi there. thanks for your message. We are sorry for the situation and apologize for that. That is not the service we are proud to say we have. We checked in our cameras and look like you guys waited for around 5 minutes to have your check in done. This delayed happened because our receptionist was finishing the check in before. Hope you guys come back so we can show you the best of our hostel. Cheers

Best hostel I have stayed at in America. Free evening meals and loads of great activities to do every day. No air con though so it got hot.

This is the 3rd hostel I've visited in San Diego and the best so far. It should score high in all categories. It's safe, great location near airport, busses and Little Italy, the staff and atmosphere is very friendly, it's fairly clean, great value for money, hot breakfast and dinner included, free activities, towels, sheets, free games onsite, free movie night and choice of bungalows. I'd definitely stay here again. Only negatives may be not enough bathrooms and a lot of traffic out front

This is by far the best place I've stayed at in a long time. The staff are awesome and want to make sure you have a good time. The food provided is good and plentiful. The activities are varied and well organised. I wish I could stay longer.

Great concept, great vibe, AMAZING Staff. I had a blast at International Travelers House Adventure Hostel. I felt safe the entire time, the staff is extremely friendly and I am still amazed at what i received for such an affordable price. I highly recommend staying here and taking full advantage of all the group activities that are offered a little to no cost. A+++++ , Ross

This is what staying at hostels while travelling is all about. Great location, clean facilities and regular bunk bed are what of course everyone expects from the hostel, but there is so much more to discover here. The San Diego laid-back atmosphere and fellow travelers made my visit special. They also offer great dinner and breakfast as well as they organize tons of awesome free activities (snorkeling at La Jolla cove, pub crawls, visit to Ocean Beach, the list goes on...). Good job ITH Hostel!

Parking situation is difficult in SD. Great hostel, would go there again next time, especially for dinner. Breakfast should be served as promised, though.

Staff were rude, couldn't answer simple questions without being condescending. was only 3 toilets in the whole hostel!! Rooms were tiny. One staff member who was on breakfast was an absolute legend!! shame he wasn't involved more.

the hostel was fine - the beds were comfortable and the rooms had enough space (not a ton, but enough). staff was overall helpful but seemed a little stressed or annoyed - not incredibly welcoming, but not off-putting either. some of the staff were friendlier and others were less friendly, but that might just be how it goes. bathrooms were dirty.

A really great atmosphere, lots of free activities all around the city, good wifi and free breakfasts and dinners. Really good value for money, in a nice location and a clean, tidy hostel for the most part
