Positive Reviews

Unbeatable location right on the beach

In review after review guests described the location of the hostel not just as “good”, but as “perfect”. It is right on the beach, and its roof deck offers views over the Pacific. Since guests typically travelled to San Diego for sun and surf they were very happy with the location. The hostel also seems to attract a party crowd who reported that all the nightlife options they were looking for were right in the neighbourhood.

Relaxed and chill atmosphere

Going through the reviews, it seems that, as impressed as guests were with the location of the hostel, it was the atmosphere that they liked even more. They reported that the owner had a very good attitude and created a friendly social atmosphere that allowed all guests to have a good time during their stay.

Was kept pretty clean

Guests were generally happy that the staff here made sure the rooms and public areas of he hostels were adequately clean at all times.

Negative Reviews

Property was a bit run down

Guests reported that the actual facilities at the hostel were a bit run down, They mentioned that there seemed to be a lack of maintenance that made the place loo like it was hanging by a thread.

Too much of a party vibe

Guests who were not really looking to party (as a verb…) didn’t really enjoy their stay, saying that they were kept awake by the general noise and sometimes annoyed by the extent of marijuana smoking in the public areas.

Limited facilities when raining

It seems that it does, in fact, rain in Southern California; and when it does guests report most of the common spaces at the hostel become unusable. It meant they felt a bit hemmed in when it rained.
