    Amazing Hostel Experience

    My second Hostel Experience and its been a great one! Better than the 60k I spent to live in the dorms at college! From the check in to the cleanliness and everything in between, well worth it! I even decided to extend my stay. The staff is inviting, helpful and accommodating, especially Maria and Eli. The bathrooms are impeccable and there's signs on each door to let staff know when they need to be cleaned. Each shower has a changing area for privacy. Great location with plenty of restaurants, bars, nightlife and shops in walking distance. Trolly is a few blocks away along with several bus routes. Makes getting around San Diego very easy. There is a laundry room, quarters are available onsite at the front desk or at the snack vending machine. They provide you with a towel, bed sheets and blanket. Follows Covid Guidelines for mask wearing and cleanliness. Definitely will stay here again!

    The property had history and character. I enjoy visiting hostels that are privately owned. They tend to be more eclectic and interesting. I enjoyed my stay so much I booked 2 extra nights.

    A great place to stay. Thank you for following covid-19 cleaning and other protocols.Also the room aircon in San Diego summer is really nice. Fro that reason alone, you are the only place I will go to. Other hostels are not worth it, with their open windows and fans.
