Great experience; would stay again !

I stayed in a 6-beds female dorm for 3 nights and I loved the place. The rooms are clean. The mixed bathrooms have individual showers with locked doors and a common sink area. Cleaning is done several times a day so the bathrooms as super clean as well and usually not crowded. Breakfast is not much but it was enough for me. They have bagels with different spreads. They also have fruits and oatmeal; along with coffee and tea. The hostel itself is nice, I loved the colorful style with lots of plants, but it is kind of a party place so it might get loud, especially in the evenings or at night. The rooms as well as the main entrance are locked via electronic key to ensure safety. Rooms have lockers too (you will need a big lock like the ones used in high school, you can also purchase one at the reception) The location is great, in the Gaslamp area with lots of restaurants/eateries/supermarkets and shopping options, close to public transportation and short ride to the airport. The hostel offers a lot of activities such as trips to Tijuana or free shuttles to La Jolla. They also organize outings in the area or getting togethers at the hostel. Only cons would be that the towels are really tiny but it is no big deal for only a few days. Individual hangers for each bed would be good too.

Getting the Little Things Right

I read all the excellent reviews, but I was still impressed by the hostel when I got there. It was the little things: the selection of teas, the evening games if you wanted to play, the staff cheerily printing something for me. That's the kind of thing that makes you happy in a hostel, a hotel, or a home. Please keep doing what you're doing!

Excellent place

This was a very clean place. With the locked access to the front door as well as my room, I felt very safe here. I booked a dorm-style room. The bed was fairly comfortable but made quite a bit of noise, both with squeaking whenever someone rolled over as well as a crunching sound from the mattress cover. Room had a locker but wasn't large enough for my carry-on size bag. It did, however, have an outlet inside if safety is a concern for you. Be aware there are two flights of stairs to the lobby and another flight up to some of the bedrooms. Breakfast was very basic with bagels and fruit. I didn't take advantage but they do provide a lot of activities for guests. Overall, nice place!
