Property Description

Located in a historic 1880's building in the center of the downtown Gaslamp Quarter, our hostel makes a statement with its double staircase and sunny, open atrium with a Victorian style that's a nod to the Wild West days. We'll tell you all about our building's infamous past as well as the ghost stories! It's just a step outside our door to the festive atmosphere of outdoor dining.

With our great weather year-round, San Diego is a great escape any time of year. We are minutes away from a great stroll to the waterfront or a ferry to Coronado Island's expansive white beach. The Padres stadium is a 10 minute walk and many other attractions are very nearby including the San Diego Zoo, Seaport Village, Midway Naval Museum and SeaWorld. Explore nearby neighborhoods and hiking trails or take tour of our myriad of microbreweries! We're also a short drive or bus ride from other beaches. You can rent scooters and bikes at a nearby stand and get out and explore the city!

While the building may be Victorian, our amenities are all modern including:
- Privacy panels on all dorm beds that include a light, shelf and outlets to charge your electronics!
- Community kitchen with lots of cookware
- Comfortable mattresses with fresh bedding, linen, pillows and towels
- Central air conditioning/heat and ceiling fans in all rooms
- Dorms have lockers with outlets inside for secure charging of electronics
- A variety of cereals and oatmeal, fruit salad, coffee, tea and hot chocolate daily
- Spa-feeling hallway bathrooms with hair dryers
- Fast wifi
- Filtered water dispenser
- Laundry
- Free luggage storage during stay
- Early check in and late check out (when available)
- Comfortable hang out spots
- Electronic entry to hostel and rooms
- Self check-in for after hours arrivals

PLEASE NOTE: We also have parking passes for rent. Please reserve in advance to guarantee one is available.

This hostel is in an excellent location and is very accessible by public transportation if you don't have a car. The staff is lovely and very flexible. I had some issues with my booking and needed to leave a day early, Erica was incredibly friendly and very helpful in figuring out my problem.

Not too many toilets/showers for everyone, plus the staff is cleaning them in the morning (so making them even less available in the "rush hours"). Internet was really bad, especially in the evening. It's perfectly located in the Gaslamp district but Downtown SD is a weird place, feels not that safe compared to other areas of the city. Next time I'd rather stay in La Jolla.
