Awesome location right near the train station and main sites. If you have a group make sure you all book at the same hostel one location, a lot of people don't realize there are two. The other location has better common areas including a garden and bar.
Great location, right near the train station, easy walking distance to pubs and funky stores in Neustadt, walking distance to the old town, and right near a new grocery store. Showers were a bit weird. Stalls in an open room with just a curtain to separate them.
Pros- reading lights and power points above each bed. Free breakfast. Good central location near public transport. ($13 taxi to fishermans wharf). Cons- very loud street noise, bring ear plugs. The tenderloin district isn't as sketchy as some people say. Yes there are some homeless people, but my friend and I walked around alone at all hours and had no issues.

Awesome location. Walking distance to the beach, clubs, and stores. Pub crawls were a lot of fun! Buy a Mickey of vodka or something to mix with the free drinks before the pub crawl! Drinks at clubs in miami are really expensive.The free meals were pretty decent (get in line early). Wish there was more outdoor space to hang out in (non-smoking). Rooms aren't the nicest, but you shouldn't be spending much time in there anyways!
Great location. Only $10 cab ride from the airport and walking distance to Balboa park and the gas lamp district. Really good Italian restaurants and cages a few bloks away. Easy to meet other backpackers and great free activities. Go on the Torrey pines walk and the sunset cliffs tour with Bobby!
This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at!! Amazing staff, walking distance to las ramblas but not in the crowded tourist area, so easy to make friends, I had a blast at this hostel! Highly recommended.

Very quiet and relaxing. Definitely not a party hostel. Located a short walk from plaza nueva and right beside the Alhambra. Beautiful views from just up the street.
Very fun hostel to stay at. It's pretty big but not too crowded even when it's at capacity. The rooms are nice and so are the bathrooms. The rooftop terrace is great for relaxing with a beer or two.
This hostel is split into three different buildings. The one with the main reception is nice, but I ended up at the one called lolo's which was old and didn't have a lounge room or reception in it. The showers were scorching hot and there was no air conditioning.
Staff were not very friendly and the bar was never open. It was expensive and boring!
It was freezing cold in the hostel and the rooms were very dirty. There was sand in my bed and hairs all over the pillowcase and duvet, gross!
Great location next to the train station and a short walk to the high street. Rooms were clean and it was a fun place to stay at. I went on all 3 of the sandemans tours advertised on pamphlets at the bar. They were all excellent!
Nice hostel in a good location. The staff were really nice and helpful. Lots of stairs to climb if you end up on one of the top floors. The bathroom on the third floor was gross. It smelled bad and the shower was built right into the same area as the toilet and sink, so if you showered the entire bathroom floor would be wet.
Beds were decent and the common room was pretty funky. My only complaint is that the toilets had no hand dryer or paper towels and the showers were literally scalding hot to the point that I wasnt able to shower properly and there was no way to control the temperature. Good location near the main train station, makes it easy to get to and depart from.
