“The service was wonderful. Much appreciated.”
“Liked the service, room, kitchen, 24 hrs availability of tea and coffee.”
“It was welcoming and the staff were so nice. The place was very clean. It was nice of them to put on a free breakfast and dinner. Would definitely reckonment this place to anyone.”
“Dorm rooms were lovely, privacy pods are a brilliant idea Comfortable beds and pillow trave Right in the middle of Gaslamp District but I didn't hear too much Friday night noise”
“Would definitely recommend this place to any young travellers staying in San Diego, has everything you could need and I didn't want to leave!”
“There is a song sung by guns and roses , it says when you have a job to do, do it well. Hostel on 3rd does this , all staff are friendly and helpful, it is clean with a good breakfast and interesting travelers. I travel to San Diego often and know the Hostels and this is 1 of 2 with good mattresses.”
“These guys are the best . I've read some of the comments and some of them were just not true . I loved that place!!”
“price location cost clean laid back”
“Spring Break 2014 - First time at a Hostel and didn't know what to expect. Loved it! All the other hotels in the area are expensive. I'm visiting to tour San Diego, not sit in my room all day.For someone who kept busy during the day and only needed a place to crash and shower - the price was perfect! Even though it doesn't include parking there's plenty of places to park and it still comes out cheaper than paying to stay at the hotels in the area. Employees are great! Really make you feel welcome and at home. We enjoyed the mixture of cultures that the hostel provided. Met some great people! Perfect location - not far from anything. A couple blocks from the gas lamp district and all the beaches are within minutes. Thank you to everyone!”
