21 October 2009 Hayley would recommend this property

Liked: good rooms. was kinda noisy location but also right near clubs and restaurants. So you need to learn to take the good with the bad. offers a good kitchen and common room but the no alcohol rule limits people from really interacting much. Most people just go out. Otherwise, good hostel

Jodie Cole

18 September 2009 Jodie would recommend this property

Liked: My friend and I stayed in a private room with its own bathroom for a very good price - not much more than the shared dorms. It was very spacious and clean. The only downside was that we put the 'please service room' sign on the door and the maid didn't come until three days later when we checked out. The hostel is in a great location - right near all the shops and bars and public transport for the beach. It claims to be very secure and the reception people give you a 'security pass' (basically a folded up piece of paper with 'security pass' written on it) which you're meant to show at reception when you come in but they never check anyway. The kitchen/living room facilities are good but there are only two computers. They don't tell you where the stairs are and just direct you straight to the lift so if there was a fire then everyone wouold be stuck. Overall, san diego is a beautiful place and this hostel is very good value for money and you will meet lots of people!

31 August 2009 David would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent location, right in heart of gaslamp quarter. safe and secure. bathrooms should be cleaned more often and the place NEEDS aircon or at least a fan in each room - it is ridiculously hot at night in the whole hostel, not just the rooms.
