  • Fantastic location near trolley and bus routes in a wonderful old historic building with lots of character. Unfortunately, the shared bathrooms need a major power washing to eliminate the mildew and heavy use. Even though the dorm rooms are small and real breakfast was not included in the price (a common element of international hostels), the stay was well worth the price in downtown San Diego, just two blocks from the water. The complimentary coffee was very good.

  • Staff very friendly and professional. Security staff dealt effectively with a noise complaint in less than 5 minutes. Showers and washrooms always clean. I would stay there again.

  • This is my favorite Hostel in the San Diego area! Easy access to the bus, train station, and trolley. I am planning to stay here on my next San Diego trip.

  • I stayed there for just over a week and the customer service was fabulous. The rooms were well kept, but the bottom sheets were never washed, you are only given a fresh top sheet and blanket. There were over 4 different people in one bed on the same bottom fitted sheet( I know because I was watching a pen mark on the sheets all week. I don't even want to know how long it had been since they have been changed.

  • One of the best hostels and I have been in many in both Europe and USA. Hot breakfast, free dinner twice a week, bonfire at the beach and they even paid for my taxi from the airport.

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
