    I loved staying here. Cool place with a great vibe and friendly staff. Had a blast going to the Gaslamp, which is right around the corner. I look forward to staying here again.

    This is my first hostel stay in a couple decades. My friend I was with uses hostels very often. This hostel was pretty nice and better than what I was expecting. The location is very good,. I had my own padlock, but no towel. Towels were rented for $1 each. The free breakfast wasn't fancy but good enough for me. It wasn't very crowded when we were there but there were plenty of volunteers living there. Most seemed to be from Brazil and other South American countries. I'd stay here again for sure

    Comfortable beds and friendly staff - couldn't ask for better for the excellent price. I also liked the funky decor and all the helpful suggestions/info for ways to pass the time in the area. Plenty of food/drink/entertainment within easy walking distance and Lyft drivers circle the area like sharks so there was never a wait.

    This was a great stay, it is close to 5th street and the Gaslamp District and within walking distance of the convention center and most things around the downtown area. I would definitely stay here again! Everyone was very friendly, although some of the staff speaks little English but that makes it just that much more fun with folks from all over the world. Whether you come with friends or are by yourself you can meet people there and have a good time.

    Alright so I'm going to be brutally honest. I stayed 3 nights in a private deluxe room and it was glorious. It was amazing because it was quiet and towards the quiet side of the street. Meaning away from the west side. It had an ac unit, which is essential, and the bathroom was right next to the room. That being said, the last night I was there I stayed in a regular room facing the street. It was loud as hell! If you stay on that side of the st, earplugs and air freshener are essential.

    If you want to rest and have a good sleep, this is not for you at all! The first time in my life I was able to see bathrooms and toilets have no mirror in there at all!

    Either I had a very bad room when booked or the conditions are terrible in some rooms, the one I got was close of a source of noise and had a terrible smell when I arrived. On the other side it has a few nice things, but things like a towel for the stay isnt included and costs an extra $1.

    It seemed cool for a bit. I stayed four days and went to renew my reservation. All was good, or so it seemed. I had to change rooms and went to make sure I knew which room. It was late, I had been checking out the local bars, I was told that I hadn't done what I did, extend my stay There were no rooms at the inn. No explanation mattered. The guy behind the counter called the cops. It was only one a-hole but that was enough.
