    Its very stylish and cool place to stay, wonderful staff, nice atmosphere, outstanding hospitality, love the free breakfast time too. The only issue I experienced during my recent stay was the parking situation cause the City raised the public parking prices from $10 to $20 overnight. It has nothing to do with the Hostel on 3d. So if you want to experience full relaxation in the heart of San Diego after your night out don’t bring your vehicle or prepare to look for the meters parking.

    In the Gaslamp district. Lots of restaurants, grocery stores and even the USS Midway are nearby. For breakfast you have the choice of coffee ☕, tea 🍵, cereal 🥣 or make your own pancakes. The reception guys are friendly and there's a patio in the back to read or watch your tablet without being hassled. James was a super nice guy at reception and helped me with my questions. There's no AC. Still very comfortable with a ceiling lamp. There were many bathrooms. That was great! The kitchen was big.

    I am so happy I only booked for one night because after that, I was out and would never have to return. To preface this, this place is cheap, and if that is what you are looking for, great. But as an experienced hostel visitor, this place is far at the bottom of my list. The 'lounge' is dark and unwelcoming. The staff could not for the life of them keep theor masks on while talking with customers in the middle of a pandemic. THEY CHARGED A 5$ FEE FOR USING A CARD TO PAY. EVERYTHING WAS S***
