Liked: I love this place. I've been to so many hostels around the world and Lucky D's is up there on my list. The location is perfect. Its downtown and its close to so many bars, venues and parks. The hostel itself is really clean, and it seems the staff works around the clock to maintain the place. The staff are really diverse and helpful. They're also really involved in all the activities of the hostel. Speaking of activities, you'll never get bored. Pub crawls every nights, beer tours, soccer games and game nights. Their common room is great for partying and meeting new people. They have free breakfast everyday and free dinners few times a week. The atmosphere is really cool and they have art everywhere around the hostel. Also the rates are really affordable. Bottom line If you're in San Diego, you have to check it out.

Disliked: Nothing! Everything was simply awesome.

Liked: Good location, free breakfast, clean rooms, cheaper than other hostels.

Disliked: Can be very hot and noisy in the rooms at night. One night they put on free dinner at 6.30 and all the food was gone at 6.20 (before we arrived for dinner!).

Liked: The cool and vibrant decor of the hostel.

Disliked: I shared a room with 3 other girls. There was no AC in the room and it was extremely hot! Also, the socket to charge your electronic devices was fixed in the middle of the wall next to another girls bed which made it difficult to charge your phone if she was sleeping! 2 toilets and 2 showers is not enough for a floor of more than 40 people! The bathrooms are very small.

Liked: Really friendly Staff, has reasonable facilities for a hostel. Has a big kitchen and they put out some breakfast items, cereal, milk, waffles, fruits which is more than I can say for other hostels. If you are staying here for Comic con this hostel is less then 10 mins walk from convention center.

Disliked: Yes the 2 rumors you keep reading are true. Only one shower per floors, usually there is some one using it when you want to. They have split the bathrooms though so they have 2 toilets on each floor as well that are separate from the shower room plus a room with bathroom sinks. Located in busy downtown area and its right on top of a to a bar so it gets pretty noisy at night. bar music, cars, etc. You will need ear plugs to sleep which the staff do give you.

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
