Liked: cheap.other travellers were nice

Disliked: - staff wasn't helpful with any concerns or questions, not on time for check out, super slow (it took us 20 minutes to check in) didn't let us in our room until 2pm (check in time on hostelbookers is 9 am) - not enough bathroom facilities (plan time to wait when you re going to use the bathroom), but this was maybe just due to outbooked hostel- on the website it promise breakfast, but there was nothing- many bugs outside and also some inside the property (luckyly we didn't find any in our rooms, but still it's hard to fall asleep, when you have to think about the bugs downstairs, creeping up into your bed (which wasn't comfortable at all, but ok for one night)

Liked: There was not much to like. The free breakfast was ok. The bathrooms seem to have been remodeled recently. However, the rooms do not.

Disliked: staff was very unorganized and barely friendly, seeemed overwhelmed all the time, hostel is in very bad shape, it was extremely loud all night (both street noise and guests) and nobody cared, 2 inch gap between window and wall, no AC, dirty room with furniture that looked like it was taken from the street somewhere

Liked: We were meant to be in a 4 bed dorm but the guy at the desk put us into a different room than was planned so we had the dormroom to ourselves the whole stay. Location is perfect- walking distance to the main area for restaurants and nightlife. The bathrooms were clean and always available.

Disliked: Not much of an atmosphere to meet anyone- rarely saw another guest the whole stay. The guests I did see were older men.

Liked: It's located in Downtown, near bars and restaurants in Gaslamp District. It's near the Greyhound bus station and the trolley station. You can also walk to Seaport Village. If you like the beach, this is not the right place to stay, it takes two hours to get there (trolley and bus). The bathroom was always clean.

Disliked: The bedroom had a carpet, I think that was a bit smelly and my mattress, in particular, was very uncomfortable. There aren't lockers in the bedroom. Breakfast was really poor, but I paid only 20 dollars, I wouldn't pay more than that for this hostel. Most of the hostel guests live there, so there isn't a travellers' atmosphere. Anyway, I didn't have any problem with that.

Liked: The location and price, 20 bucks (especial offer) was a great deal. The staff is nice too, we didn't have any problems and they were very friendliness.

Disliked: There was a fight in the second night between two guys of the hostel. And the smell wan`t that good too.
