Liked: free brekky everyday and waffles on the weekend.lots of pub crawls and predrinking in the common room to get to know the other guests in the hostel. close to gaslamp so lots of places to eat (some a little over priced though)bright and funky hostel. cheap drinks just down stairsthe older lady who cleans is so lovely and helpful on ides on what to do!

Disliked: a couple of the people at that were on the front desk over my 5days there were lacking a smile so it made me not want to ask questions. the first girl was very short with me, not rude but like she didn't want to talk to me more then she had to.its a little loud due to the bar down stairs but once i was actually asleep i didn't hear it. (im a deep sleeper) but i think they offer ear plugs.

Liked: Welcoming atmosphere, interesting artwork along corridors, lockers in rooms, social events organised by the hostel staff, free evening meals and breakfast, communal environment.

Disliked: Don't fall so easily for paying $10 for wristband to get drinks concessions on the organised pubcrawls, as we did not break even on that night, visiting a mere two pubs on our only night in S.D. Seek assurances.

Liked: Location, but you have to expect noise as it’s directly downtown, but with no AC and the open windows, it’s a bit too much. It’s located right above a bar.

Disliked: It’s located right above a bar. The bed are cheap and very uncomfortable, like a used and hard futon highly overdue to be changed. It felt like sleeping right on the wooden frame. not enough toilet per floor. Price too high

Sorry about the bathrooms. It can admittedly be hectic sometimes. Hope it was otherwise a happy stay.
