Liked: The place was great! In the middle of Gaslamp, a very cute zone of Downtown San Diego. Big kitchen complete of all supplies you may need, Big common zone at first floor, cozy and comfortable. Great staff, always kind and super available. Hope to come back here :)

Liked: The location is outstanding. Right on the edge of the Gas Lamp quarter means that there are bars and restaurants galore within minutes but the area itself is very quiet. If your budget does not stretch to eating out every night however their is a good kitchen and a well stocked supermarket only 2 blocks away. Also you are only a short walk to the Zoo or the harbor or again minutes to the trolly or bus stops if you want to go further afield. Staff were all very helpful.

Disliked: My only bug bear would be the beds which had a tendency to squeak quite badly. We were in a two bed dorm so not too bad but if you are in a larger dorm room then ear plugs may be a good option.

Liked: Fantastic location, staff was super friendly and helpful, hostel was clean and comfortable, and it was wonderful having a full kitchen on hand.

Disliked: When I was in San Diego, it was super cold and the hostel was quite drafty. Obviously, the hostel cannot account for the cold weather, but it would've been nice to have a few extra blankets to keep warm in the cold nights, as we were only given a sheet and a thin blanket.
