Just WOW. Great hostel!!! Make a good choice and stay there. Price is a little high but everything else ist just great!!!!!! Very good hostel!!! Location is good. Staff is friendly, nice and helpful.


At first I wasn't too impressed, but then I grew to love this place. Check in was a bit slow - they explained it's not usually as busy as it was, but they should have had an extra person to deal with the luggage storage and answering the phone and door buzzer to speed things up. The shared bathrooms could have been cleaned more often IMO. Overall, the staff was laid back and it was really fun staying here. :)


I loved this place. San Diego is an amazing city and this place is the perfect base to explore it from. The pub crawl was really fun and the beds with the privacy pods are a brilliant idea. I'd definitely stay here again.


The environment is so nice and I like the kitchen so much . It provides not only nice free breakfast but also the Kitchenware that guests can make lunch or dinner by themselves . Everything is great!

It was so hot in the room for two nights, almost no air in the room, I was about to sleep in the bathroom, because it was fresh... There is no air conditionning. Very well-located: downtown, near the plublic transportation, in the middle of dozens of good restaurants and bars.
