Right by the Ocean beach, this hostel is clean, neat and well equipped, much more than the outside lets on with its funky look. I only visited and didn't stay, but I will next time! A lot of free activities and tours.

Hostel is really nice, very good looking and renovated. Rooms are clean even if the shower doesn't smell very good. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. If you prefer tranquility, that is not really the place because there is always music and people on the patio. The Bonfire at the beach is a really nice activity. Perfect for a quick...

By far the best hostel i've ever stayed in, i stayed here for two nights last year in September with TrekAmerica. Rooms were spacious enough and clean and beds were comfy. Relaxed atmosphere and a great way of meeting new people.

This hostel was splendid, modern, safe and comfortable. The staff was pleasant, and I had the absolute best time. So far, it has been the best hostel experience. If you're in San Diego, *this* is the place to rest.

The hostel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. It's located right in Ocean Beach which feels like its own small coastal town. It has character. The staff organized a bar crawl for everyone staying there. It was a great night. Met tons of other travelers I might otherwise not have met.

The front drisk was very knowledgeable about the area . The rooms were clean. The bathrooms were clean. They had a nice backyard to just chill. It's on a great street where you can walk to the beach or bars/restaurants.

This was my third time staying here and just like the last two visits, I had an amazing time! The location is pretty tough to beat being less than two blocks from the beach, and the staff and volunteers are always great. I highly recommend staying here when visiting San Diego
