    Very helpful and enthusiastic staff. The building has great common areas. My only suggestion bis that each bed have a shelf, a place to charge phones, and a reading light. If someone wants to read, the whole dorm is lit up. Overall, one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at.

    Power strip has loose plugs. Bed doesn't have good support, sags hard under load. Curtain doesn't close from air filter, so light comes into the room from outside during night.

    Overall a decently clean and friendly hostel. I stayed in a private room and the original room I was given was not the cleanest - extremely dusty air conditioner, smelled like cigarettes etc. but the staff were extremely understanding and accommodating with the issue and offered to switch my room. My new room was clean, private, and well equipped. Facilities were great and the location can't be beat - centrally located in Gaslamp Quarter with reasonable overnight parking right across the street!

    Good location and nice staff, but it does get loud on the streets, especially weekends, so you may have trouble sleeping. Also, not much of a social atmosphere, so it felt sort of dead.

    Location is great and staff very friendly and fairly knowledgeable about the local area. There is no real social atmosphere at the hostel. Few events arranged and tricky to meet other guests in their 20s-30s as a solo traveller. Many of the guests are older. Great if you want somewhere reasonably cheap to stay in Central San Diego and if you already have other plans. But not the best if you looking to meet people to explore the city with.
