    HUGE complaint: Credit card fees! $5 per transaction!! If you were going to pay for your stay on a card it would go like this: pay for the room (cost + $5 fee), pay for deposit ($20 + $5 fee), at the end, to have your deposit refunded ($20 refunded, -$5 fee). $15 in fees for a $25/day room seems ridiculous. Bring cash!!

    This place rates very low on the Hostel scale. I travel between San Diego, Las Vegas, and Vancouver, BC Canada (My Home Base) every three weeks for my job. I have been to many Hostels in the San Diego area, and this one was totally off the wall. As soon as I walked in the door, COMPLICATIONS. It was better to pay cash, to avoid service fees. They also wanted a $20 cash deposit for security. This got my ears perked, as most places will just take your card number, and charge you accordingly. I had

    The main problem was the cold. Our room was the coldest I have even been. we had to sleep with pants and a sweater.The smell of the hostel was horrible too. there are like 7 people who life or ”work” there. If you go here don't forget your flip-flops, the showers are not very good. And the worst for us was the checkout. They tried to not give us back the twenty dollars deposit. We need to leave 15 minutes before to the time that the open and he didn't want to help us. I WOULD NOT go here

    AVOID! This hostel has horrible and deceptive operations going down. I booked my stay through Hostelworld, paid the initial deposit, then Arnol at the front desk tried to tell me that the deposit I paid through HostelWorld was a fee charged by HostelWorld and would not go towards my bed/room fare. This was 100% false and completely made up by Arnol. They did not have a sheet for me and the key to my room did not work. I asked for a refund of my fare (paid cash) and they refused to do so. AVOID!

    Staff made my experience here very unpleasant. Also, after staying at hostels all over the world, this one just had a vibe and character that was off. I wouldn’t stay here again.
