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

I actually didn't stay here due to a glitch in booking through Hostelworld, but it seems like an amazing hostel! They gave us vouchers for a free night's stay and let us join the Saturday trip to Tijuana. We saw three hostels during our time in San Diego and this was definitely the best! Too bad we weren't able to stay there

Staying at ITH was great! They where having some issues with their booking software and hostelworld overbooked me. But when I got there and there where no beds available they immediately offered me to stay on the couch free of charge! A lovely crew works there and the Tijuana trip was really fun! Fully recommended.

They messed up my reservation as I booked a room in a 4 bed dorm but gave me a room in a 10 bed. They seem to be having problems with their reservation system. They did offer me discount and the staff member was apologetic. Get free breakfast and dinner although the rations were small, Comfortable outside sitting areas.

We are glad that you enjoyed our outside areas. We had some problems with reservations coming through Hostelworld and we tried to accommodate everyone. Unfortunately we couldn't keep you in the room that you booked because it was a Hostelworld mistake, showing you a bed available when actually we had not. One more time we apologize for this situation. It is not the service we are proud to say we have. Please, let me know if you have any plans to come back and we give you a night for free. Cheers

Overall I had a really good time at the ITH, however that was mainly because of the people I met. The hostel itself and today and night time events put on are good but my experience was soured by the staff. I found the majority of them rude and if not rude uninterested in guests. Unfortunately the character limit doesn't allow me to recount each story but there were three separate occasions when different staff members were out right rude to me for no reason, which I find unacceptable .

The ITH is one if the best hostels i have ever stayed at! It felt like home and some ppl even became good friends. They understand why people travel and provide the best basis to experience san diego. Thank you, team, for the best time! Hope to see you soon!
