    It was the best place to stay ever. The staff are amazing (and a little bit crazy, in the good way 😂), the rooms are really good and clean and the view is the best.

    I absolutely loved it here. All of the employees and guests were super sweet and cool, plus it’s RIGHT ON THE BEACH. You really can’t beat the price for the location. I will definitely be returning.

    I stayed here for 2 nights and I was pleasantly surprised by this place! The back deck is right on the boardwalk and I could sit in those hammocks for hours. The staff is very knowledgable and friendly, I felt very welcome the second I got there. I'd stay there again if I come back to San Diego.

    Great location right on the beach, walking distance to shops, bars, and restaurants. super relaxed and laid back hostel environment, staff was friendly. Kitchen was small and kind of dirty. but my dorm and ensuite bathroom were both spacious and clean. loved the outdoor area, would consider this more of a party hostel.

    I made a reservation online for the ITH Hostel for a friend of mine. I reserved the room, the deposit was taken, and I thought everything was okay. Two days later, we were told they do not accept 3rd party payments. I called and tried to pay over the phone, but they wouldn't allow that. My friend was in a serious bind and just needed a safe roof over her head and a bed to sleep in. Her last night was compped. But, she had to go. The hostels they said would accept her and my payment, didn't.
