Liked: Awesome place with a great vibe, extremely social and staff are very welcoming. The hostel is in an awsome neighbourhood close to heaps of bars. The staff were great, in particular Alex and Megan who who invited us out for drinks on a Saturdays night and Then took us up the coast to go camping for the night which was an added bonus we did not expect. This place exceeds expectations and especially Alex and Megan's customer service excellence

Liked: Great atmosphere, always something going on. I love the decor. The place was clean the staff were helpful and the location couldn't be better. They sell discounted zoo and sea world tickets ( I didnt go but the fact they do is great for a student back packing trying to save money) . They had a great free breakfast, waffles and cereals. tea and coffee all day and a free dinner while I was there too. Highly recommend this place.

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 stairs the 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: I loved all the freebies on offer here, the staff were really welcoming and the place was clean. When I arrived they were putting down new carpets which looked very smart. The kitchen is amazing and a place to meet, cook and chat over food. The staff are a mine of information and helped me to book a hostel in LA. I am returning to San Diego at the end of the month and will definitely stay here. I loved it.

Disliked: There was NOTHING I disliked about this hostel.

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
