Liked: Free breakfast & meals 3 times a week, good communal spaces and the location.

Disliked: Wifi on 4th floor was a bit slow, pub crawl could have gone to cheaper spots(backpackers!) and maybe some of the staff could've been more engaging, but no major negatives!

Liked: We are 3 girls from England and we loved our stay here! The hostel is amazing and full of life, the staff are really friendly and there's generally always someone on the desk to help you out when needed! It's full of young people and the activities they put on are great for meeting new people. The beaches and easily reachable by a cheap and quick bus ride as well and the centre of town is only seconds walk away. I would recommend this hostel to any students travelling and wanting to be well located in San Diego!

Disliked: It's not that great if you want a decent nights sleep. The beds aren't the comfiest and the noise from the street is mega loud due to being near to the fire station! No complaints apart from that though.

Liked: They offer free breakfast, three times a week free dinner (and it's tasty!). Staff is friendly and you are in a very central area of San Diego - you can walk to a mall, the movies, trolley and bus stations...

Disliked: It is very loud at all times... there is so much noise on the street downstairs that I could hardly ever sleep. It is a party hostel because of its location right in the gaslamp quarter... so people (mostly Germans or Brits) came in groups just to sleep there and party, not very interested in getting to know other people from different nations or having conversations with someone not already belonging to their group. I've been to a lot of hostels and normally always get to talk to people and make friends easily...but not here. It's not a very nice atmosphere for you, in case you're travelling alone.

The property's response is...

Liked: It was right near the main restaurant and bar quarter and close walk to the harbour. The staff was super friendly and helpful and there was lots going on for those who wanted to stay with the hostel. The free breakfast was great! WAFFLES!

Disliked: The US policy was a bit confusing and almost made us not book. Understandable but a shame to have to put that on the website as you could lose business.

Liked: Really nice hostel. Always have stuff going on in the evenings, and plenty of opportunities to socialise. Free dinner 3 nights a week is great. Only downside for me was that the breakfast only comprises of very sugary things! Really sugary cereal, and waffles. I did enjoy them, but would have liked the option of a healthier alternative.

Liked: the girls were really helpful behind the desk. and friendly housekeeping staff.

Disliked: the guy behind the desk at one point told me i could not get a sim card in the USA just for pay as go phones. so i went to the shop and got one immediately. he apparently knew nothing about this aspect of life in America.

Liked: Almost everything, it has a very nice atmosphere, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything u need to cook, big common room and nice and comfortable beds, very clean, they make a nice dinner 3 times a week for free, the breakfast is great and the manager is very nice!!

Disliked: The staff: there must be around 15 guys and girls working for the hostel, they look a nice group of friends but they don't do nothing to envolve you to party with them, In the beginning i thought it was me but than other 2 guests told me they had the same feelings, they should be more friendly with customers
