    I staying at CoLive for 4 nights and met some really great people during my time here! The staff members were very friendly and helpful, especially Amber! From board game nights to great dinners, I had an amazing time and would definitely stay here again when I go to San Diego.

    I only stayed one night, so my impressions were quick. Pros: helpful staff, creative decor, location, good breakfast (several cereals, fresh fruit + toast), comfy common room with musical instruments and a pool table, on-site laundry. Free towels and liquid soap provided helped make up for the weak flow from the showerhead I used. Also, it got pretty hot on the top bunk, so why was I only provided a blanket and not a top sheet? I would've asked for a sheet if I had stayed another night.

    Foolishly, I did not get a key because I didn't have ten bucks on me and also i was super tired. Get a key, it'll be so much more convenient for you. Other than that, it was really fun and lively.

    Great location. Its a bit of a weird dynamic with a long term people living there vs a regular tourist. There are too few lockers, and all have been taken over so you might not find a place to lock up your stuff. Over all though, I'd recommend it.

    My stay at ITH zoo was a good experience. I was on a one-week trip for work so I enjoyed the quiet, cozy little study room. The location was perfect for me - right next to the beautiful Balboa Park and a few minutes walk from grocery stores and coffee shops. The place is clean enough considering how many people stay there. The parties can get wild but thankfully they don't have them often. The people I met were the best thing about the experience - fun and friendly staff and residents. Cheers!

    Pros: staff is usually pretty friendly, the people staying there were very nice, plenty of bathrooms, nice living room space, ideal location, very close to cute areas of San Diego Cons: fruit flies everywhere (especially the kitchen), the rooms smell odd, all of the dishes are washed by the people that live there (so they might not always be super clean), staff not always at the front desk/hard to track down, not allowed to bring non-hostel guests in the living room area,

    The staff were not really helpful and was very nonchalant. It was hot in the room and LOAD because the room was off a busy street and it was horrible.
