Great location, friendly and helpful workers, clean rooms and bathrooms. Excellent experience at HI San Diego, we would definitely stay there again if we go back! We loved how close it was to the nightlife and a short walk away from Petco Park!
I stayed here for 2 days as part of a scientific conference at San Diego. I felt the staff to be very friendly, helpful and caring. For the amount you pay, the things you get is abundant, free breakfast, 24hr free coffee, tea, and so...More
We stayed in a private room without a bath. I was worried there'd be lines for the bathrooms and showers, but this was never the case. It did get a little loud Saturday night on the street, but they provide earplugs and we turned on...More

Thank you for the review! And we are glad you enjoyed the WoWbutter, we hadn't heard any feedback on that yet :)
I was at the hostel to attend a conference. I stayed in a four-bed female only dormroom that unfortunately did not have a wash basin. This would have been handy to eliminate the trip to the washroom for brushing teeth.
The washrooms are clean, provide...More

I stayed here alone, sharing a room with around 5 other girls. This hostel is perfect if you're travelling alone. Staff are really friendly and willing to help with any problems you have. Location is in walking distance of everything, only downside is that it...More

There is parking nearby. The two closest parking options are the Park It On Market garage (on Market between 6th and 7th), and the LAZ Parking Lot (on Market between 7th and 8th). The Garage parking is 24 hours, and you pay when you take your car out, so it is typically $15-$20 for a 24-hour period depending on when you take you car in and out. The Parking Lot is typically $9-$12 for a 10-hour period of time. With the lot, you can only pay for 10 hours of parking at a time, and you pay upon arrival the kiosks located in the lot.
All the best and safe travels!
