    Truly one of the best hostels as far as location and staff. I Have stayed before and always come back. Numerous things to do nearby and on the beach. Always meet great new people and it is hard to go wrong staying here in San Diego.

    Would have been good if there was a luggage room. Also on the first night someone walked into our room at 8am who we didn't know despite checking the door was definitely closed so security could have been better. However, the hostel was good value, GREAT location right on the beach, breakfast AND DINNER was included which was great and there was free coffee all day.

    Staying here was great! The main areas and the bedrooms were kept really clean, and the people/ staff were all very friendly and easy to get along with to make friends! The only feedback would be the cleanliness of the bathrooms, I think could use some improvement. However the family meals and small details like hiding Easter eggs was really heart warming. I had SO much fun and met the best people which really made my stay at the beach bungalow totally worth it. I will definitely be going back!!

    The location wins over any other hostel. Ocean front where you can watch sunset comfortably from your hostel. You can rent surfboards and wetsuits for a very cheap price. They have free breakfast and most nights also special free dinner. The beds are comfortable, a little noisy but nice. Bathrooms could be improved a little but they have everything you need.

    I enjoyed this hostel; it was right on the beach and attracts interesting guests. My main issue was with the cleanliness of the facilities, which left something to be desired.

    This hostel is a good place for people who are surfing all day and are just staying at the hostel to eat, sleep and party. The rooms are pretty noisy and there is not much room for privacy. The bathroom is kinda dirty and sordid, the water tap is almost falling apart, you can’t really close the door in the public bathroom and you don’t really want to prepare food in that kitchen. The location is great though and the terrace was also pretty nice. But don’t forget to bring FLIP FLOPS! Dirty floor!

    The room smelled of marijuana. The staff does NOT enforce quiet hours, (loud til 130a.m) & there's one bathroom inside the 12 bed dorm that one person at a time could use. Outlets scarce and not available for each bed. Shower looks horrible. On the bright side your directly on the beach, they serve breakfast and dinner. Also have quite a few social events. Other than that for anyone who wishes to have peace and quiet while they sleep & a clean shower, Go ELSEWHERE!!!!
