    The stay was good the staff was awesome very close to all the downtown amenities including bars great restaurants, the naval museum and carrier and the waterways, all within walking distance. A great place to stay for $25 a night you can't beat it! Would definitely recommend to folks that don't need there room & bathroom, Sharing is caring! It's like adult summer camp. Bring your own shower shoes, and towel.

    The staff was friendly and very helpful in particular was Chris, the tall young man. He was very familiar with the San Diego area. The pancakes were very good for breakfast and location great for restaurants and bars. The property was very old and historic and the staff did the best they could. The hand painted art inside of the hostel was very impressive and colorful, it added to old San Diego.

    Great hostel. I've seen cleaner and more organized ones. The parking is HORRIBLE if you get there past 7pm. But the room was nice. It had a sink which was great for brushing teeth and hands face etc. Employees were nice and I felt secure.

    Very Good

    The Grandal manager/ owner of the hostel was very stern with the rules, whether it was about quiet hours or not hanging out in the kitchen/ dining area if you aren't cooking, prepping a meal, or eating. This, I feel was both great and a bit disappointing. Though you get the professionalism from the owner, you won't get much leeway to really relax abs get to know people outside odd the parameters of the rules. Other than that, it was great! Restrooms were very well kept, staff very attentive

    most people staying in the hostel were somewhat sketchy. I understand it's a hostel but I've had less of these experiences in other hostels in very close locations.

    I've spent over 8 years travelling around the world and living in hostels and this was the worst one I've ever stayed in so I think a review is in order. I'm almost 30 and was the youngest guest (avg age around 55) and they were letting locals in Aswel. Not just foreign passport holders. So zero social scene and atmosphere. Free pancakes tho.
