staff was okay but not super friendly or helpful; the rooms and the building are okay but not very comfy or nicely furnished; they don't offer any activities (neither during the day nor at night) and they close the living room every day at 10 pm-then you can only be outside or in the hallway or in your room; WLAN is not working very well and they don't have computers (only some old machines that aren't working very well and you have to pay to use them)
the staff was quite friendly but incompetent-they couldn't even tell me where the bus stop is for the bus that goes to the airport, and they couldn't answer any other question I had; the rooms could be cleaner; its a bit of a walk to the strip or fremont street (ca. 15 min.) but there is good public transport; they offer good, freshly cooked dinner for only 5 $; good activities at night;
great place to stay:very nice and helpful staff; good location:close to Downtown and good public transport to the beach; very clean; they also offer trips which are really good to explore SD-to a very fair price! Thanks Steve for fun nights and interesting talks, Bobby for awesome trips, Eric for making everybody feel welcome, Alissa, Gillian and Kayle for letting the sun shine in the hostel 24/7, Thiago for doing Yoga with me;and Ben is a great cook and entertainer!
