Travellers' Choice
Lucky D’s is fun, comfortable, clean and safe. It has an amazing atmosphere and a perfect location. Lucky D’s Downtown San Diego Hostel is steps away from the Gaslamp District, home of San Diego’s hottest nightlife, restaurants, bars and shops. It’s close to all of the city’s attractions and the best beaches are a quick bus ride away. Lucky D’s staff are wonderful. They are knowledgeable, helpful and will make sure you have a good time. San Diego is a fantastic city and Lucky D’s is in the middle of the action. There are fun things to do every day, a party every night and plenty of free food. You’ll have so many new friends you won’t know what to do with them all. COVID-19 UPDATE: OUR RECEPTION AREA, CHECK IN and CHECK OUT WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM 10am - 10pm 7 days a week. KITCHEN IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ALL SCHEDULED SOCIAL ACTIVITIES ARE CANCELLED WE HAVE PUT IN PLACE PROTECTIVE MEASURES INCLUDING HOSTEL-WIDE DISINFECTANT SEVERAL TIMES DAILY, AS WELL AS ADDITIONAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AS RECOMMENDED BY THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. PLEASE CONTACT THE HOSTEL FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS.

Great place, helpful and accomodating staff. The rooms and common areas are cleaned daily by the staff and several volunteers. In contrast to other hostels Lucky D has several common rooms that create a social and homely feeling. Best of all, the hostel is centraly located and resonably priced.

It was terrible one of there long term guests had an ankle monitor on and I left early due to mentally I'll roomate. The staff was unprofessional and unaccomodating. I walked out 2 days early without a refund to get away!

This is two years back to back I've stayed at Lucky D's Hostel in San Diego. The people operating this place are great, friendly & very helpful. The atmosphere is openly social, I met several nice people who were also staying there. I appreciate what this establishment offers to travelers looking for a nice, low key affordable place to hang their hat!
