    This hostel by far is one of the best. Very diverse staff, all extremely friendly, and easy to approach. The guests I've met have been cool and you really get to meet lots of new people. As a Black man, I was unsure what to expect upon arriving but, was put at ease by Justin, the manager, who went out of his "way to make me feel welcomed." If you're looking for a "place to stay near the beach" this is your place. Also, the grocery store being one block away is an amazing benefit!!!

    I had a really good stay at this hostel. Great location and had a lot of amenities most hostels don't have. The staff was super nice and friendly - Justin was great! I definitely recommend staying here if you come to San Diego, it's close to everything, good surf, and a good place to meet people.

    The location couldn't be beaten, the pancake breakfast is an awesome perk. One staff member was incredibly rude but the rest were excellent and welcoming.

    Great location and great value. Overall, it was a good two days. The Wi-Fi for the TV was very frustrating, but if you’re not there for the TV then it won’t be a problem.

    A fun spot , with the best location right overlooking the beach. Seriously unbeatable for location. The dorms are pretty ordinary. Nowhere to put phone or wallet if sleeping on top bunk. Sondd Ed shelved would go a long way to improving the bed. Showers and bathrooms always clean, but old and tired . Guests were respectful of the quiet hours. Staff were super friendly. Waking up to beach views... makes it all worth it!

    It's a pretty chill hostel. Kind of expensive for what you get but it is California after all. My only complaint was that a few beds were located right next to the bathroom door and there was a bit of a smell wafting out. Lots of stuff to rent so you can do cool activities. Other than that it was about as expected for a surfer hostel.

    The location is great, however, there were some pretty sketchy people staying there that ruined the experience for me.
