I stood at the front desk for about 4 minutes waiting for the receptionist to acknowledge me, she was too busy texting and she never looked up until I was forced to get her attention.

Great spot walking distance from clubs and bars, staff were friendly however there is a limited number of toilets and showers for such a large hostel which can be an inconvenience.

Great place to stay in San Diego! They offer free breakfast aka toast and jelly every morning as well as free washing powder, and linens. My only complaint was that it was really loud outside due to the bars and construction work going on right outside of the rooms.

I had a great time at this hostel! I love San Diego and I love Lucky D's. It is perfect for getting to know other travellers at breakfast or in the evenings where there's always drinks for a few dollars in the common room. A few times a week the staff also makes dinner for everybody which I never had at a hostel but really liked! The rooms are very nice, the staff is friendly and the hostel is located in the Gaslamp Quarter, in downtown SD. I will definitely stay there again next time :)

My girlfriend and I stayed here hoping for a cheap and quiet hostel. As it turns out it was not the latter. This is a party hostel. Even though it is cheap, if you're not into drinking, drug use, and debauchery then you'll probably find that your stay will be incredibly uncomfortable. Do yourself a favor and drop a little more for an HI hostel nearby.

It is a very nice and fun place to stay in a good location. The staff is really nice and lot's of fun activities make it easy to get in contact with other people. They have great breakfast (cereals, oatmeal, bread, jam and peanut butter, waffels...). I would totally recommend this hostel!
