    I've stayed at 5 millions billions hostels, from Malaysia to Morocco to Mexico. There are nice elements that you can cultivate structurally—kitchen, bathroom, check-in, etc.—and those are solid here. What's harder to generate is a vibe like Stephan, Alex and Jordy share with the peoples. They're attentive and helpful and insightful, and, just as importantly, the types of peeps that make a structure a place you want to revisit. Props to them.

    Very Good

    My walk to get to the location in the dark took me through a bad part of the city. I was stepping over homeless people camped out on the sidewalk. Unrine was running down legs of other homeless people I encountered to get to this joint. Once I arrived, secure door, so I started to feel a bit better. Check in was smooth. The place reminded me of a college dorm with drunk 20 year olds walking around. The entire place smelled like urine. Had a private room w/ lock, felt better. Staff was friendly.

    One of the cheaper options for options in Gaslamp if you're looking to travel on a budget. It is situated in a historic building and has quirky decor all throughout. Constructive feedback: - Cleaning frequency of the bathrooms needs to be increased. There are only 2 toilets and 2 showers per floor and a sink room - which were all lovely if you manage to snag them after a fresh clean. - Ensure that all bathrooms have a mirror, soap AND towels - often there was a pick 1 or 2 scenario
