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.

I enjoyed my stay at the hostel! It was my first work exchange and it taught me a lot of useful tips and tricks I will use going forward. San Diego is a beautiful city and I recommend everyone see this city at least once.

This place is in a great location for downtown SD. Management was nice and very accommodating. I met so many good people. Parking is a bit hard but other than that a great place to be.
