Overview

Our award-winning HI San Diego - Downtown has a relaxed urban vibe and loads of social spaces. First stop: have a go on the swings in reception (you're never too old)! We'll sort you out with a free breakfast and take you out on tours and trips like going to jam sessions in San Diego’s Hip-Hop community. There's also a games room where you can show off your pool skills or go old-school on our arcade games.

Location

We're in the heart of the lively Gaslamp Quarter – San Diego's nightlife hub. As well as loads of bars (including rooftop ones), this historic neighbourhood is filled with art galleries, music halls and cafés that spill onto the streets for outdoor lunches. We're easy to find too: just a 16-minute walk from the Greyhound bus terminal and 20 minutes from the Amtrak stop. From San Diego Airport, catch the 992 bus for 16 minutes to Broadway and 6th, then walk for 6 minutes to our front door!

Rooms and Dorms

With high ceilings, air con and fans, all our rooms are spacious and cool – we do everything we can to keep you comfy while you snooze. Each room has storage lockers plus free, fresh sheets and towels too. As for room types, take your pick! Choose to stay in a mixed or female-only dorm, or in a private twin or double room. (Some private rooms and dorms have en-suites.)

Extras and activities

As well as the fun bits, we have a practical kitchen, dining room and laundry room – in case you need to wash those socks. Laze on bean bags in the lounge to chat or use our free Wi-Fi. Our front desk is open 24 hours (which helps when you're crossing time zones) and we can store your luggage for you. We've also got a handy ATM – when you've stocked up on dollars, hire bikes here for rides around the city parks. Afterwards you'll be glad of our elevator for weary legs!

    this place is great. Staff was friendly & checked my reservation every time I came in, which made me feel safe. The rooms are all individually key coded; only the people in your own room have access. The artwork on the walls by local artists & for sale, which was a cool perk for a quick souvenir/memory of trip. Plenty to do in the hostel & too much to do within the immediate neighborhood outside the hostel. Electric scooters get you anywhere for cheap in downtown. Plenty of bathrooms 5 stars!

    Great location close to bars and restaurants. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Clean facilities. I stayed in a private room with no bathroom that seemed a bit overpriced compared to local hotels in the area. Ended up moving to Hotel Z and was worth the extra dollars. I'm sure if you were to stay in the dormitory there is better value here. Just my thoughts..

    Honestly, this place was ok. The staff was great. The issue is, there's a new nightclub across the street and it is LOUD. If you have a room on that side of the hostel, don't expect to get any sleep. When we told the staff about this they were very helpful and changed our room. The tours from the hostel activities desk were great, if you're here a chance, do those.
