    Great place; beware of noise!

    Our stay at the hostel was excellent. The location is perfect and we felt very safe. The rooms and shared bathroom were always clean. My only complaint is the noise. Our room was located above Market Street which has several bars and restaurants so people are constantly walking by. We stayed on a Friday and the next morning there were garbage trucks passing by since 7 am.

    I really liked the location, the fact that they have an elevator, and the size of the rooms and bathrooms.

    Good common areas such as kitchen. Cleanliness was OK. Downside for me is the lack of windows in the room that could be opened for fresh air. There was air con though which helped but I prefer to have windows that can be opened.

    warm cozy little space

    I stayedfor Thursday night and Monday night. It was described as it should be. Warm, welcoming cozy little place that is a very friendly environment. I would love to stay again here in the near future next time. I had a fun time here meeting new people and hanging out with them. Best of all! right in the heart of San Diego Downtown! Everything is right around the corner just a few minutes walk so it was very convenient too!! awesome great little location
