            This is a very nice hostel. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean, which is for me especially important when it comes to toilets & showers. The location is perfect as you are in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter.

            I stayed here while visiting Sand Diego for 4 days. The location can not be beat. We couldn't visit every bar, eatery, and entertainment place while we were there. Super close walk to the convention center that houses eateries with nice water views. The hostel host fun activities every day of the week that facilitate new friendships. Met so many cool people from around the world.

            The hostel is situated in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter. Which means it is very convenient to visit the city, but also means you have to bear with the noise of the neighborhood (i.e. super loud music til 3am).

            No complaints! The location is right in Gaslight, so lots of parties going on at night. If you don't like to go out drinking, maybe stay somewhere else. If you like going out, it is perfect! Amazing building painted with amazing art which has all been well taken care of. Showers were small, but clean. Six showers and six stalls total.

            I went to San Diego for their beer fest. (157 breweries and counting) I read that the Gaslamp Quarters was the party scene & had so much to do. It was a short Lyft ride to/from the airport. So very convenient. OMG you are literally in the best location in Gaslamp Quarters! I missed the front door walking past it. Twice! 😆 Maybe because I was so distracted people watching. I hurried and checked in... and then enjoyed the late night entertainment on 5th Street. So many options to select from.... I do plan on coming back to San Diego AND USA Int’l Hostel is where I plan to stay again and again. P. S. Little Italy was the next best place to adventure!! Prost 🍻~Becca from Texas

            Very clean and modern hostel, despite it being an older building. Fabulous location in the heart of the Gaslight district, although my roommates told me it was incredibly loud on the street Fri. and Sat. nights until very late. My only problem was the mattress on the upper bunk was somewhat saggy in the middle, causing me to wake up at 5 a.m. with an extremely achy back.

            Cheap accomodation during Christmas ”

            We spent 4 nights in a double room. Room was extremely small and the twin room at the top of the landing looked bigger. We were out and about most days so didn't need to use any of the facilities. Didn't have much interaction with the staff so can't really comment on that. Bathrooms were extremely clean though and we never had to wait to use the shower. We booked this place as we're travelling and rooms were expensive during this time - I probably wouldn't stay again if I visited another time of year.

            Our stay was comfortable and we would stay again. Great location to city buses and trains and ferry. 25 minute city bus ride from Hostel to airport. Plenty of restaurants, music and bars in a very nice part of the city. I had a private room. You are above two restaurants, so there is some noise, but nothing ear plugs and air conditioning couldn't drowned out.

            Stayed 1 night in February 2019

            Very good”

            The location is exceptional as it is located at the Gaslamp Square. With very reasonable price, you could get free breakfast and also dinner (Thursday and Sunday only)! However, I was placed with a man who seemed high and drunk where he split and vomitted over my luggage. The officers seem powerless to him, very dissapointed!
