    Even though we found ourselves here during the California lockdown, the staff were amazing & really helpful! Unfortunately, social events were cancelled due to social distancing, but there were enough facilities at the hostel to keep us entertained. It's in a great location & was kept immaculately clean. We will definitely return when things are in full swing. Thank you!

    The only issue we had (and it was not the hostel's fault) was someone ate half my leftover salmon sandwich which was clearly labeled in the fridge.. .They left the lettuce and half the roll...

    The best hostel I’ve stayed at! Great location, I could always find parking, the kitchen was huge! The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms were very clean. The shower was nice and hot too. We went while the covid-19 virus was about though so there were no activities hosted. The tv room has a large flat screen tv and has access to hulu, Netflix, all the good streaming sights. There was beach equipment and surf/paddle boards available for free too which was pretty cool.

    I stay here every time I'm in San Diego - awesome staff, good people, interesting guests. The rooms are tidy (bunk beds are a little old, but still sturdy and comfy!) and the bathrooms/showers were recently updated and are super clean. Twenty minute walk to OB's restaurants/beaches/bars but far enough away in a quiet neighborhood with a grocery store across the street.

    It was my first time staying at a hostel! A lot of the amenities that are usually included were "not allowed " because of covid. So you're paying the same price but not getting the full experience. The staff was super friendly! The walls are paper thin, you can hear everything! But other than that we had a great time! Would definitely stay again!
