I liked that they embraced SDCC while I was there only downside the stairs and unisex bathrooms otherwise a great location and friendly staff.
Tour guide on walking tour was great he introduced himself to everyone and offered to take photos. He was a manager at the hostel sorry forgotten his name.
This is a well kept secret for sure.
The people are nice it's a little noisy at night and they're are clubs down the street but if your tired from a busy day it shouldn't bother you.
