    THE BEST LOCATION EVER! The hostel is right on the beach with an outdoor common area facing the boardwalk, sand, and beach. Right in the middle of all the bars and restaurants. This is the hostel to be at if you want to visit San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood.

    Things that were great: 1) 30 seconds from the beach. I ran each morning 2) Towels provided To improve: 1. Great staff but.... On two occasions (the first at check-in ) I waited at the counter, in front of the receptionist, for like 5 minutes, before the receptionist spoke. A simple "please hold" would work. Only after I said hello again did they speak to say "hold on". I was unsure if they had seen me. I understand work gets busy but acknowledge the customer. Besides this, they were great.

    Had an amazing time at the Beach Bungalow! If you are looking for a quite place to relax by yourself, this is NOT the hostel for you. This place is a constant party, especially on the beach deck! Only downside is the deck closes at midnight, but the awesome part is that the Bungalow is directly on the beach so you can hang out there until your heart is content. The location couldn't be any better. Within walking/scootering to bars, restaurants, the bay for water activities and Belmont Park!

    The room I was in, the 10 person mixed dorm, was musty because it has zero ventilation. It didn't have many wall outlets either to charge devices. The other facilities were lovely, except the room. Overall great location.

    The hostel is without a doubt the best spot to go if you’re looking for the beach atmosphere it is located right on the beach they feed you at night burgers sometimes spaghetti sometimes, sometimes roasted potatoes, usually cooked by the staff who are from all the world. So we had spaghetti cooked by an Italian. Roasted potatoes cook by a Frenchman, and burgers cooked by an American. You get pancakes in the morning. Surf rentals are provided along with wetsuits. Dining/ grocery is walking dist.

    Perfect location & positive vibes. They have a door code they change often which is nice to ensure security. There is only 1 bathroom inside the 12 dorm (and it is always full) it wasn’t terrible but could have been cleaner & had more toilet paper replacement. The room can get a bit stuffy since there is only 1 fan. Overall would still recommend!
