The hostel is well located next to the Gaslamp Quarter. But I've been traveling for a time in California and at this hostel was the only place that I didn't have help for the staff when I needed, actually the guy was really rude. I really was upset comparing to all those other hostels that people were kind and helpful. And there are not enough showers and bathrooms, they are outside and two of each for floor.
The staff people were helpful and there are lots of activities at the nights, but the location is not so good and it would be nice if they have some free shuttle to the beach.
