We especially liked the extra touches such as water dispensers, hair straighteners and toiletries in the bathroom and great list of free activities to do.

This was my first time in San Diego! Traveled solo and immediately met friends upon arrival from all over the world! Already planning a trip back for the end of the summer with some friends I met during my stay. Incredible location and staff, no complaints!

Love the hostel with the patio and the kitchen as the center of attention where everyone is cooking, drinking, chatting. Felt like a home! So close to the beach and in the middle of the lovely Ocean Beach.
