Upscale Hostel Oct 22, 2011
The location of this hostel is unbelievable! smack dab in the middle of the Gas Lamp district and a 15 minute walk from Seaport Village. It has a great atmosphere and the dorm rooms are clean and have plenty of space. The beds are probably the best I've ever had in a hostel and there were plenty of extra blankets available.
Breakfast didn't start until 8 which is pretty late for me but that's a personal preference, the selection was quite good with fruit and bagels. The only major downside to this hostel was the poor internet connection and the grubby bathrooms. The bathroom issue is easily solved with an old pair of flip flops but the internet was frustrating. Apparently they are getting this sorted for the end of November though so at least they are working on it.
You have to show your check-in contract every time you enter the hostel and there are huge lockers in the rooms so security is very good and they offered activities most evenings such as bar crawls and movie nights. I also bought my zoo ticket here as it worked out a few dollars cheaper than getting it at the zoo and i missed out on the huge lines.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone going to San Diego
