    This was the first time I was able to get a whole room for myself at this location. I’ve done the shared room since I’ve been coming here for about 3-4 years and it was worth it. The room was good enough for one person or 2. It had enough space to put my luggage and clothes and not having to share space this time around was a nice change of pace. The only issue I had was that I was getting itchy from the sheets but good thing it was not bed bugs but other than that I liked and enjoyed my stay

    This is my 2nd stay in 2 weeks. I have been sampling all of San Diego's Hostels that cater to the international traveller. I was pleased with my 1st stay, a 1 nighter last week, so I decided to give it another try. I was blown away when Angelo, the front desk person, remembered my name "Billy" from the previous week, which was a short 8-9 hour stay. This is just an example of the way I feel when staying here.

    Big hostel with lots of different rooms so you don't have to share bedroom space w too many people. Comfortable couches and pool table in the common area, and they provide free breakfast stuff which is clutch. Location is great - within walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants in Hill Crest. Modern keycard type entry keeps it simple and secure to get in and out. Nice and helpful staff - would recommend!
