USA Hostels San Diego

It's definitely one of the best hostels I have ever stayed. Great facilities, perfect location in the middle of San Diego - everything walkable. Nice activities and great advice on activities. Only the room was very smelly which could be improved.
Would go there again for sure!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

An absolutely faultless hostel! All of the staff were so welcoming and made me feel so welcome; it truly felt like home from home. They have a range of activities on everyday, most of which are free and if not they don't cost too much. The Tijuana trip was so much fun. I felt so safe whilst I was there and the group organiser was brilliant. They have all you can make pancakes, cereal and fruit as well as tea and coffee available throughout the day. . The dorm rooms have privacy pods which, in my opinion, all hostels need to introduce. You have a metal divider covering where your head is on the bunk beds which has a little shelf, a night light and two plug sockets. You have plenty of space in the rooms to store your bags as well as lockers which have plug sockets in there. The location is fantastic as it is in the heart of the entertainment district with restaurants, nightclubs and bars all around you. Despite this you can sleep easily at night. There are relatively cheap restaurants to eat at as well as take out shops. Ralph's supermarket is within walking distance if you wanted to shop and eat at the hostel.
Overall, this hostel was amazing. A home from home feel and I will definitely go back there! (in fact I'd love to work there)!
