Nice hostel in a good location. Adequate dorm rooms with big lockers and bed lights. Good bathroom facilities, though cleaned at odd hours. Kitchen facilities small and crowded, especially during breakfast times. Breakfast ok. Staff all polite and friendly. Has laundry facilities. Overall, would definitely recommend.

Great hostel in a brilliant location. I have stayed in several of the USA Hostels and all have been excellent. Was a bit quiet while we were there so atmosphere was a little subdued but that is no fault of the hostel.

5s across the board, best dorms I've ever stayed in with a private "shelf" area for each bunch. Hostel itself is awesomely located on the edge of the gaslamp district and the staff are helpful and friendly. Would absolutely stay again.

Right on the main strip, so a great location. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Enjoyed it here. Like the board of things to go that day. Little bad points. I had a big case and there's a fair few stairs (more my fault than the hostels) and the showers were a bit dirty. There wasn't many places to sit at breakfast. Not major complaints at all.

Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Well-located in the Gaslamp Quarter, a short walk away from the 5th Ave Trolley station. Fairly comfortable bunks, each with light and power socket. Street-facing rooms can get a lot of noise from nearby bars. Lockers available in room with power socket inside, though require big-ish locks. Card access to get into hostel and rooms. Vending machines and ATM available. Good facilities in working order. Overall, a nice hostel.

If you get given room 18, simply refuse, there is some kind of lift/air vent which makes a really loud constant noise all through the night.

This place is fantastic! It's in a perfect location, right in the middle of the gaslamp district, close to public transport, restaurants, bars, shopping. It is very secure and there is plenty of room for your bags. The staff are amazing, very friendly, always around to help, speak amazing English, and really know San Diego like it's their home. The hostel has a staircase in the middle and plenty of places to hang out so it's easy to meet people. And it is so clean all the time!Highly recommended

Even though it was a cool night in San Diego it was SO HOT that I could barely sleep. Please buy fans! Other than that, it was a nice hostel - the free breakfast with fruit was great.
