Great value, especially as it includes breakfast and dinner. The other guests were from a variety of countries. There are lots of free activities (jam sessions, tours, etc) and the place has a real quirky charm. Staff were very friendly and enthusiastic.

The staff are what made this hostel amazing. All the volunteers were what made this place great as I felt right at home almost instantly. Free breakfasts and dinners were a nice touch, and a great way to meet so many others. Likewise with all the free activities. I particularly liked the laid back atmosphere: it felt like a community rather than a business (with all the rigidity), and that made you feel like you were at home rather than a guest. Thanks for the stay! :)

Great setup - such a wonderfully relaxed hostel to be staying - in a quiet enough area, with good facilities, good rooms and most of the staff are stellar - very helpful and accommodating, and keen for a chat about all manner of things.

The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. The free pancakes in the morning really started the day off right. The private room was cozy and comfortable. You cannot beat this hostel, as its only two miles from Ocean Beach (which rocks), as well as close to the airport (2 miles or so). Check out the Pizza place and mexican joint near the supermarket... you won't regret it.

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.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I ran into an issue upon arrival and the staff was more than accommodating. I really appreciate their understanding and flexibility. Cleanliness is average, but the location is great if you're planning on spending time at the gas lamp district or convention center. There is a great supermarket nearby and tons of restaurant choices in gas lamp. Noise from outside was a bit bothersome at times, but it's bearable considering the price you are paying in that location.

I only booked this hostel as it was the only one available for my dates. I enjoyed my time so much here I extended by 2 days. The hostel is in a great location, it's noisy most of the day due to planes as its very close to the airport but the convenience of the closeness of the airport outweighs the noise. This is the only hostel you can play the plane drinking game! If you're open minded and laid back this is the place for you. The hostel itself is average but it is good value for money, especially in San Diego! But the best part of St Christopher's is the manager, Juliet. She is a wonderful woman with a fabulous personality. She has epic stories if you take the time to ask. And providing you are polite and respectful, she will treat you like an old friend returning home. She has created the perfect hostel atmosphere, a home from home. I made friends I will never forget here, Juliet being one of them. I would recommend St Christopher's and I hope to return soon for considerably longer! Thank you, Juilet!
