This was my first solo travel. Definitely got everything I needed and more out of this trip. 28 days. Extremely thankful to the hostel team and my overall experience in San Diego

My experience at the hostel didn't really go as I expected. Chris was really listening and helpful. Tasks and schedules took place as agreed. But... Unfortunately I think the hostel has lost quality in recent years. Cleanliness was not up to standard. I also regularly saw cockroaches. And the clientele is no longer as young and party-loving as it used to be. I failed to feel comfortable during my month-long experience. Obviously, this remains my opinion and my expectations were perhaps too high.

Very mellow hostel, which has its advantages and disadvantages. All in all had a very good time!

Such a great experience. My first hostel experience. Fun to hang around downtown where stores would normally close at 9pm or 10pm eastern time. Also, the convenience of the trolley is definitely a great design, as there are needs to go places hours away from the hostel.
