    Had a wonderful time at the ITH Adventure Hostel in SD and would have stayed more days if I didn't already have plans to travel elsewhere from San Diego. The staff was super friendly and inviting, and I found myself in the middle of engaging conversations and stories from all over the world. The rooms were a bit cramped in the larger dormitories ( triple bunk beds ), but for the price it was worth it. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

    Everyone was super nice and welcoming. There was a vegetarian dinner and breakfast the next morning. The bed was comfortable and the shower was nice. The whole hostel was also really clean. The literal only bummer is parking is a rough so prepare for that but I mean it's San Diego so par for the course

    Place was great. The bunks were a little close together, especially at my height, but everything else, from the friendly and helpful staff, to the clean common areas, was perfect.

    Overall best hostel experience I’ve ever had in America. You can tell they went out of their way to make it both great for when you’re spending time in the hostel and out of it. Events nightly, great location, and a staff that was more friends vibe than “employees”. I’d recommend for sure.

    Overall, I had a good experience here. I stayed for 3 nights. The hostel is located in a charming house and the facilities are well maintained and are clean. It's a great location that is within walking distance of the city center and Balboa Park. Free pancake breakfasts in the morning. The volunteers that run the hostel are all helpful. The volunteers that run the hostel like to party a lot, so if you're looking for a quiet place I would look elsewhere.

    Friendly staff, clean facilities, great location, uncomfortable slats with wide gaps under mattress needs addressing. After all a good night sleep is an essential part of a hostel.

    First, I'd like to thank Zack for his help and professionalism. And secondly, I am not blaming anyone for my experience but I am frustrated with management for the lack of communication and/or concern. The code for the door was changed and I was not informed and my purse ended up being stolen from me because I fell asleep on the stairs outside, being locked out with nowhere else to go. I don't blame them for the theft but I was hoping to get a refund and no one even called me back.

    The location of this property was excellent and the staff were friendly enough. The noise level throughout the night was awful. Each night I was up until about 2:00 a.m. and later on my last night and it was easy to locate the place due to the smell of weed that came off of it on a regular basis. We couldn’t open our windows due to weed and cigarette smoke that made our room reek. Some people might prefer that though.
