This is one of the best hotels I've stayed at. They had both morning and evening activities most of which where completely free. Good breakfast and lunch included in the price. You can spend your time chilling out in the garden or you can party hard 24 7 it's got something for everyone.

I liked the friendly and relaxed atmosphere in San Diego. They offer free activities at day and at night which are led by a member of staff which give you the opportunity to meet other people very easily. As I was traveling by myself, this was just the perfect hostel for me. It is great value for money and I felt comfortable and content the whole time!

The location is right in the Gaslamp quarter. It couldnt be better. Its Non profit hostel so there not charging for every little thing like towels and using the shower. It had a pretty good vibe. I was there for the Rolling Stones concert that weekend. Theres a full Grocery store/ drug store on the block. That really helped. Lots of Pubs and restaurants. I have only good things to say about it.

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.

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

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.

The location is very good. Wifi is very good but it can drop out sometimes. 6 floors with a elevator. Daily maid service. Hot showers but the water pressure could be a little better. Price for a 4 bed room is very good but can change from week to week.
