3 minutes from the old Market Square. Live music in the pub. Cheap breakfast. Free dinner. Wow! Plan to have fun. Now if you are a stick in the mud looking for peace and quiet, try elsewhere.

Hello Gerard, thank you for your review. In our hostel there’s enough space for people who wants party and then during the day need to chill out a bit. We have sofas in a pub or terrace where you can e.g. read a books from our library. Also you can always join us during our daily events where we are chilling and having fun at the lake, river or just making picnic all together. It’s summer time ;)

This is a luxury hostel. Many backpackers, who are often just a bunch of drunken louts, do not deserve such luxurious accommodations and should find a pig stye more suitable to their station. Myself, with more refined sensibilities, could live here 365 days per year.

Chelsea Star Hotel

I recommend staying here but several improvements are needed: 1. There are no lockers in the rooms. Lockers are needed 2. The bunk beds are too low and too noisy. Need better quality bunk beds 3. There is not enough common area. The only common area is in the courtyard outside, but in inclement weather it is not usable and there is no where else to hang out and meet other travelers. They need to have an indoor common area.

Well, we are certainly glad you chose us. Thanks for the great review. -HI San Diego Downtown

Not really a hostel. No activities or information or anything like a hostel. Did not meet any fellow travelers. More like a rooming house. Kitchen had nothing to cook with. No dishes, bowls, cups, or anything. Just one broken pan. Useless. They charge $5.99 per day for internet. Every other place has free WIFI. They charge like 10% extra tax on top of everything. I can not recommend this place unless you are desperate.
