Very good hostel and friendly staff, but there should be lockers in the rooms.

Great hostel in a good location. However, I had the room on the first floor right by the entrance and the front porch so it was really noisy. Throughout the night, I heard guests talking and partying in the lounge and the porch as well as street noises (sirens, buses, etc.).

Hi! Thanks for staying with us! Sorry to hear that you caught our hostel on a noisy night. We do have free ear plugs at reception. Next time please let our receptionist know and it will be our pleasure to get you some ear plugs. We do also enforce our quiet hours so guests can get their rest but sometimes people are having such a great time they can be a bit noisy. We will continue to work on keeping the noise down after quiet hours so everyone can sleep! Cheers, Bobby Owner

we decided to stay there for 5 nights, but after having spent 2 of them we decided to add 2 more. The staff was so nice and kind and the daily offered activities awesome! on top of that it was very clean. The atmosphere was charming and the fact that this hostel is really small gave it a familiar feeling . We'll be coming back

Awesome staff, so friendly and you felt they were your friends. Daily and nightly activities every day, and the chilled out atmosphere made it so easy to meet people and bond with the other guests. Will definitely stay here again next time in san diego! :)

The free breakfast and supper was definitely a perk! As were the free activities! Everyone that worked there are extremely nice and helpful. I would stay there again if I return to San Diego. I really enjoyed my stay here.

It was a great stay! Chose this hostel because dinner was also included as well as breakfast and it was excellent. Sushi night, bbq night, pasta dishes! was definitely a bonus to only have to get lunch when travelling and they offer it all for such a great price too! Great staff, great location, close to Little Italy station where you can then get to Old Town and go almost everywhere by bus! Would def stay again!

Great Place, especially for a small hostel (which gave it a good family vibe). Staff were amazing and helped us with loads of stuff. They also kept the place super clean. The meals were great, although cereal at breakfast would make it perfect. The activities were really good, the Mexico trip was so much fun and the free surf trip was awesome. Having been to other hostels in the area, I would definitely recommend this as this best hostel in San Diego.

Clean, safe area, friendly staff. Our room stunk badly from rubbish/compost outside, but that's not the staffs problem, just bad location of rubbish- window allowing smell in couldn't shut.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We're working on a new place that will work better for the rubbish and recycling, so thanks for the feedback, it's always helpful!
