    Gus had great recommendations and was very personable! It was an awesome experience, everyone was so nice! The bikes for rent are actually very nice, they look like beach cruisers but have gears! Was a bit chilly at night with just a sheet but they’ll give you extra blankets if you need them!(:

    This place is wonderful and spacious. It has the biggest kitchen yet with everything you need. The staff is friendly and ready to help and point you to the right direction at any moment. They have a huge TV room, Foos ball, ping pong table, a pool, an area to work. It is simply awesome. Isis, Isa, J, Dave; and everyone else is just top-notch. I love it there. Everything is clean and brand new, I would recommend it to anyone who is coming to San Diego.

    It was such a warm, welcoming spot to layover. My only issue was how very noisy the doors are when closing and opening. They need to be shaved down and oiled. Or something. Also, although the room was cozy. Very tiny but cozy. I, literally, could hear the person in the next room snoring! I was trying to nap for my 1am flight and couldn’t. Lol Great place otherwise. Great location for spots to eat and a great grocery store.

    No activities, staff is nice but mostly hanges out in the office regardless of whether or not they are working. No social atmosphere, very quite. Wasn't given a blanket at check in just a sheet, ended up sleeping in a lot of clothes. Parking more available than other locations.

    I really WANTED to like this hostel. But several unfortunate events occurred. First, I paid $7 to have a small load of laundry done. I got it back with 3 odd socks - which means half of my socks are now gone (3 out of 6 pair) - and I got an extra odd sock that didn't belong to me. No one could figure out who it belonged to, and I was out 3 pair of socks. Not wanting to make a big deal out of it, I asked if they could just waive the laundry fee - since I have to go buy new socks. But no,
