      A particularly good hostel. The front desk was welcoming and the location was excellent. It is safe to show cards when entering and leaving. The kitchen is also nice. Breakfast is usually full. You can have hot tea and hot chocolate all day,

      Very Good

      Located in the city center, the traffic is convenient, that is, the bar street in the summer weekend is quite noisy. For those who need quiet sleep, it is prudent. Breakfast is relatively simple, the shell fruit is very solid, 24 hours coffee, Lipton tea, the kitchen is big enough, clean and tidy, the front desk staff is very good, will come again

      The location is great, in the gaslamp quarter. About half an hour walk from the famous Balboa Park. It is not too far from the port of San Diego. Many bars and restaurants downstairs. Good is very convenient, and bad is very noisy at night. The choice for nightlife is right here. The music downstairs is a lot of Latin and there are street bands. Okay. The staff were very welcoming. Will organize a city tour. Breakfast is average, no milk. The decoration is very unique, the patio is very warm, but unfortunately there is no time to enjoy. Washing clothes one dollar at a time, drying one dollar. Would consider here if I return.
