The staff was not helpful. The key they gave me wasn't working so they just told me to leave the door open... Also, the bathrooms were really dirty and there were coackroches in the rooms.
--Very low price even for a single private room with a fridge. --Met some very nice people from all over the world. --Hayden was very nice & helpful! --Cable TV with lots of channels --Room was bigger than I thought --Close to grocery, bus, and dining --Hayden had good suggestions about where to eat, and was genuinely interested in the guests staying here --I understand it is a Hostel, and not a ritzy hotel, I could go either way about coming back or recommending this place.
--Roof top patio was scattered with beer cans & bottles, & trash...I cleaned it up myself --Kitchen was dirty...again I cleaned it --clean dish policy not upheld --2nd broken TV in my room taking up counter space...owner said she would have it removed but never did --Trash from previous guest in trash can in my room...showed owner but seemed uninterested --overheard owner & housekeeper arguing --Booking.com said there was AC, staff said my room had a ceiling fan, but it didn't and they didn't have a box fan for me so the room was very warm --Kitchen fridge overstuffed with food, some of which was inedible --housekeeper was singing gangster rap songs about penises and drugs while I was eating in the communal kitchen --I wish I could post some of my pictures along with this review....I told them I was a travel photo blogger....I would have hoped they would have tried harder...
The location is pretty good and the staffs were receptive.
They forgot to put sheets on my bed, they didn't say until what time the check in goes and then when I got there at 11:30am they said that it was until 11am and also the wirelless is so bad it didn't work from my room.
The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and friendly!
There were bedbugs!!!
Nothing. STAY AWAY...
The staff are really unorganised. Check-in was a nightmare. There are no lockers. Very small kitchen only 2 seats and small table! the bed was really hard and uncomfortable. My rooms was way to hot for the summer with the only window locked and a slow ceilling fan . The bathrooms were also really small with no sinks, even though there was a sink in the bedroom. Kitchen was small and the breakfast provided was almost nonexistent. On top of that they keep my reservation deposit after telling me that I could not stay for my second night because my reservation was done too late! Much better hostels in San Diego stay away of this rat hole!!!
The price, the location, simplicity, the rootftop terrace.
The place could do with a lick of paint and a little refreshing.
Staff and location.
Bed is not comfortible.It was very old.
Excellent location and easy access to public transportation
The price. But you get what you pay for!!
Rude staff. Room was not ready until 9:00 p.m. the day of check-in, 12 hours after check-in time. We had to lug our stuff around all day and keep checking back to see if the room was ready. Apparently they had no one to clean it! This ruined our first day at our conference. The room was OK when we finally got in, but only one of three windows opened, and that only partially, and the ceiling fan did not work. There were no trash cans to be found, no toilet paper, and no towels available to even rent. My boyfriend stayed three nights previous to me and had NO SLEEP at all due to roommates turning on lights, partying late, lots of dance music from the lobby. The worst night was when a young man brought a woman to the room at 2:00 a.m. and proceeded to have loud (and apparently unfulfilling), unrelenting sex with her on the bare plastic mattress cover, scratching and clawing away, having removed all the sheets to "save them for later". After 2 hours of this going on not four feet from my boyfriend's face, he finally sat up and said "REALLY???".. Now the man was perturbed that he had been disturbed and would not be "able to finish". They finally gave up and opted for Snickers bars instead, as Snickers Satisfies. They roamed the halls buck naked in search of those, too. They were still crashed out in the room when I arrived at 11:00 the next morning. Later they checked out but left our room door wide open with all our stuff in there. The staff was consistently rude and unhelpful, and never did get the ceiling fan to work or the windows to open over our four-day stay. The 'breakfast' consisted of a gallon of milk left out on the table in the (very) hot July weather and a box of Fruit Loops. The kitchen was filthy and piled with dirty dishes until day four, when someone finally came along to do some cleanup. The rooftop patio was littered with countless beer cans and bottles and was un-usable.
I did not like any thing about the hostel. To grade the R.K hostel is +0. Not to put male inside a female room.
Friendly and clean staff who knows how to run a hostel. The hostel in very dirty, bed not made, no air conditioner. The hostel smells very bad. Two male was check in inside my room which is female room.
The people working there are awesome and the location is very good :D I will definitely come back!
Terrible service, hosts with bad attitudes and incompetence. Facilities were unsanitary and incredibly small. In showers there were mold and water pressure was terrible as well as the temperature was all over the place. Rooms unorganized, bad layout. Would absolutely not recommend.
All the time the people are worried in make you happy and the rooftop make the rest.. great stay, great place.
Slow at the check-in
Great potential. Place is cute, decent amenities, and I felt safe.
My non-smoking room was attached to the smoking patio - would have been easy to rethink that logic. Patio life was hopping until 3am or later, but our window wouldn't shut and I needed to wake up early the next morning. The place was loud in general until well past 3am - there was no time designated for start of quiet hours which I think you need in a hostel. Some staff seemed overwhelmed with the guest numbers, and other staff just didn't seem to care (I had to ask for a pillow three times, and even after that, no pillow cases were available. Dishes were piled to the faucet - characteristic of a busy place, but completely unsanitary and great incentive for cockroaches) I have stayed in several hostels and this was the first one that seemed like it's worked well in the past, but has become too loose with its operations to ensure people can enjoy themselves AND get at least half a night's sleep. Too bad, because I liked it when I first walked in.
blazing fast wifi
don't think my bed sheets were cleaned prior to arrival
Reception guys were very kind.
Place is really small.
Not a comfortable stay. The beds are very uncomfortable. There is no AC. My window was stuck open so it was very loud if somebody was talking outside
staff and location were great.
NOTHING TO LIKE AT THIS PLACE/ITS GREAT IF YOU WANT TO PARTY ALL NIGHT AND THEN BE DRUNK ENOUGH TO SLEEP ON METAL BARS UNDER A WORN OUT MATTRESS AND NOT A SINGLE RULE WAS ENFORCED! SLEEPING WAS NOT A OPTION! LOCATION IS GOOD IF YOU LIKE TO BE CLOSE TO PARTY AREAS AND YOUR YOUNG, GO FOR IT,LMAO!
BEDS WERE HORRIBLE/FLOORS THAT NEVER SAW A VACUUM /POOR VENTILATION/STAFF THAT KEPT LOOKING AT COMPUTER SCREEN WITH BLANK STARE/RESERVED DOUBLE ROOM WEEKS IN ADVANCE ONLY TO BE BOUNCED FROM ROOM TO ROOM 3 DIFFERENT NITES! ABSOLUTELY RUINED MY VACATION/ONE NITE HAD TWO SLEEPING IN BED BELOW ME.BATHROOMS AND KITCHEN AREAS WERE DISGUSTING. WOKE TO FIND PEOPLE WHO WERE'NT EVEN REGISTERED SLEEPING ON COUCH IN COMMON ROOM! CEREAL AND TOAST ONLY OPTION FOR BREAKFAST!AND BOTH WERE OLD!
Price was great for a single bed room in downtown San Diego. Internet worked fine while I was there.
Checked in and had to hit the ATM as they don't take cards. Came back after hours and had to pay the next day, and the staff member I dealt with didn't seem to be very friendly. He wanted to charge me a late fee for not tracking them down to pay earlier, he insisted I'd have to change rooms, and kept claiming my reservation was shorter than it was. I didn't get a good vibe from this place so I just told him I'd leave early and go stay at a friend's house. Bummer, as I had high hopes for this place.
All was pretty well!
No dish clothes for dishwashing , and no bleach to add to bleach water. so many foreigner's and must have bleach??
The staff helped us planning our trip in the city, the location is perfect and facilities are nice. We met a lot of young people, it was nice !
Upon arrival , a staff member tried to charge us a $5 early arrival fee, but we arrived at 10AM as they requested us to ! And at 4PM the room still wasn't ready... They ask you to arrive between 10 and 12AM, how can the room still not be ready at 4PM ?! We lost our first day...
From a previous stay, it was nice. But on this particular stay, they were over booked so i was turned at the door with about 50 other ppl.
Close to gaslamp district
Most of the staff treated me like an uninvited in-law living on the couch.
Very cean and comfortable hostel with dedicated staff
