  • The location of this hostel is awesome. This is a basic hostel and needs a lick of paint and say more power outlets bed light lamp. The breakfast was nice but the cafe was extremely small. The staff were helpful and polite.

  • The location of this hostel is the best attraction. You're literally 20 feet from the pathways along the water. Within Fort Mason there are green parks and a community garden. I'm not sure if this was a rare coincedence or common place, but the night I stayed here there was a block party / street festival with 20+ food trucks and a DJ located just down the hill. There were NO spots within the room to charge any electronics and the sheets were clean but clearly old. Good basic hostel.

  • Staff is very helpful. It's not in a central area, but I think I prefer the amazing views you get from every window to a mora central location! Also, you can easily take the bus anywhere you wanna go!

  • No outlets or bed head lamps in the dorms. Not a bad dorm, but not the nicest either.

  • Overall, a great experience. Being able to stay at Fort Mason is truly an exceptional opportunity to access and explore the city of San Diego. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is pretty decent, though the coffee should be only for the brave. I stayed in the women's-only room and found the piping and vents caused a ruckus throughout the night. The lockers are a great size to store your bag or backpack. Highly recommend.

  • Overall very pleased with the accommodations and stay. This was the first hostel experience so do not have anything to compare to. Thought it was extremely organized, particularly the kitchen set up. First night stayed in the lower level private room which was too warm and a bit cramped. Second night on first floor private room which had high ceilings, more windows and was not as hot . Included breakfast was quite adequate. Would certainly come back again!
