    One of the best hostels I have stayed in! Shout out to Liz, Sandra, and Chris taking a group out to a bar. Definitely going to be staying at this hostel in the near future. The hostel's backyard is a great way to meet other travelers and hangout. The hostel is about a 15 minute walk to the train station. Thank you to all the staff for being awesome!

    Had such an amazing time staying here! The staff was awesome and so friendly. Absolutely love the location of this house- walking distance to Little Italy and the pier. Lots of good bars & restaurants around, plus an awesome farmers market Saturday morning. The house itself was clean and well taken care of. The rooms were a good size and I actually slept very well in my bed. Didn't have any issues with it being too loud or any of the other guests. Would 100% recommend - and will be returning!

    I've stayed in over 40 hostels internationally, & this is in my top 3 favourites! Renewed my stay multiple times since I'm having such a good time here. Reasons I love ITH: 1) Location. Walking distance to transit, parks, coffee shops, restaurants, farmers markets, music, comedy, waterfront! 2) The people!! Made more friends here than ANY other hostel in USA! 3) Feels like home. So open compared to other hostels I stayed at in SD. 4) Free breakfast! 5) Staff are the most friendly travelers ever!

    Jessica is very friendly with tourist advice and hospitable to guests– hostel is in a good location if you are after the Old Italy and Gaslamp area. No complaints. Breakfast was also good for what you expect from a hostel. Clean sheets... also practical to do laundry.

    I nice hostel with family atmosphere. The floor of the dormitory was a little dirty but the bathroom was clean. 3-bunk-bed not so comfortable to get in. A little bit long waiting time for extending my room not because of a queue rather because of the booking system and staff.

    Clean Hostel cool staff but not really for Solo travel during covid. Most of the people are residents so that makes it less fun to do stuff.

    The hostel is located in a great spot, minutes away from the waterfront. The building itself is well-kept. Nothing new or modern but adequate enough for its needs. The staff were nice and showed me around to my room, kitchen and restrooms/showers. There were issues checking in and out because the wifi connectivity was extremely slow. The rooms are what they are; six bunks to a room. My roommates were also nice, most staying just for a few days or week. I would say it was worth the booking.
