Liked: This is the best youth hostel I've ever stayed at! Besides the fact that breakfast AND dinner are offered, which saves you quite some money, the atmosphere at the hostel was amazing. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. During my visit the other people staying at the hostel were all very sociable and fun to be with. The location is great since it is in a quiet area, but still in walking distance to the bars and clubs of the Gaslamp Quarter (Little Italy is right around the corner) and the trolley stop isjust a 5 min walk from the hostel. The activities offered by the hostel were also really fun and it was great that you got an opportunity to meet the people staying at the ITH Zoo Hostel. The Hostel is always very clean and although people go out together regularly the staff makes sure that the noise is kept down not to disturb the other guests.

Disliked: Johanna left no negative feedback.

Liked: This hostel goes above and beyond in accommodating it's guests. I've stayed in several hostels in the past and this one is easily the best bang for your buck. They provide meals and even have a fridge available for storing personal items. Hands down the best part is the free activities that they provide: pub crawls (free cover charges to bars), sail boat trips, hikes, adventures around town...They also make it easy to meet people and all of the staff are extremely laid back and friendly!

Disliked: Alexander left no negative feedback.

Beach / sunbathing

Liked: I liked how close this was to Little Italy

Disliked: I disliked that there is no real beach in walking distance. This is more in the financial district and you have to bus or take bikes to the beach.

Liked: I positively impressed by the character of the hostel. I travel a lot and this was on of the best hostels I stayed in. The arranged activities (including the free food) are awesome, and therefore the hostel is also perfect for travelers that travel on their one.

Disliked: The way to the beach is quite long ... , however, it is close to nightlife.

Liked: Very comfy beds :-) very friendly staff and plenty of info on San Diego and surrounding areas + lots of group activities and chances to meet people and socialize. Quite clean, and breakfast + dinner included in the price makes it really good value. Also, the area feels very safe and it's only a 10-15 minute walk from the Gaslamp Quarter with all the pubs and restaurants.

Disliked: Not enough restrooms, though I managed to escape the big crowds by showering early in the morning. No lockers in the dorms, but there are a few small lockers for valuables in the kitchen (bring your own padlock or rent it), and the staff is super helpful with storing your luggage after check-out. Would be nice to have individual lights for each bed, lockers in each dorm, and maybe to enforce the "noise curfew" a little bit more energetically. The staff members recommend that after 11-12pm all noise be avoided, but nobody is actually doing anything to make sure that the rule is respected. For those who may be there to study/work rather than to party every single night, having people who play guitar in the veranda until 1 am or come back in the middle of the night from a pub crawl and turn on the lights in the dorm room is not much fun.

Liked: very friendly and helpful staff, nice hostel. the kitchen is small but has everything you need + it is clean which isn't the case at most kitchens in hostels. there was freshly made pancake in the morning and pizza slices in the evening. there is a flat screen tv in the common living room with a million chanels and I think it was pay tv, so there were a lot of cool movies and also classics plus sports. in the bathrooms there was music broadcasted via internet livestream, I remember that I took a shit during the western soundtrack "a fistful of dollars". Awesome! I was very impressed, especially for that price! I will definitely come back!!

Liked: I loved Everything! People was very friendly and helpful, You get breakfast and dinner. All the facilities are brand new and clean! Rooms a spacious. Overall hostel has a great atmosphere. Ceo (the turkish guy) was an erasmus student in Budapest, Hungray, so we had a lot in common. It is just really hard to believe that they can manage all these stuff from just $25/night. But they do it! Proper job! Respect. And thanks for staying with You. I'd definitely recommend to everybody!
