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!

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.

I think Lucky D's is a great hostel! It's clean and safe, and the location is excellent, because it's near Gaslamp Quarter, Petco Park, Convention Center and the San Diego Bay. Also, the price is fair with good services, and the staff is great. Michael, Sasha, Anna and Gregory were very friendly and supportive, showing me many places in San Diego. Jackie is another staff member that you can always count on! Extremely happy, funny and she also prepared an excellent Thanksgiving dinner for everybody! Strongly recommend it!

I love this place. I've been to so many hostels around the world and Lucky D's is up there on my list. The location is perfect. Its downtown and its close to so many bars, venues and parks. The hostel itself is really clean, and it seems the staff works around the clock to maintain the place. The staff are really diverse and helpful. They're also really involved in all the activities of the hostel. Speaking of activities, you'll never get bored. Pub crawls every nights, beer tours, soccer games and game nights. Their common room is great for partying and meeting new people. They have free breakfast everyday and free dinners few times a week. The atmosphere is really cool and they have art everywhere around the hostel. Also the rates are really affordable. Bottom line If you're in San Diego, you have to check it out.

The location isn't too bad, walking distance from the airport and not to hard to get to from Greyhound. It's close to the main parts of San Diego and has a nice view from the back
