Could be our 22 years of experience, or our friendly staff of fellow travelers. But most likely it’s because we offer the best value in hostel accommodation in San Diego with our Gaslamp entertainment district location, our exclusively-designed ‘privacy pods’ and our truly unique style of hacienda-meets-hippie-meets-Victorian décor. And now, all guest rooms are fully air conditioned too!
Built when mining was bringing settlers to the new town of San Diego, our location originally housed a brothel. Wyatt Earp (of Dodge City fame) was among those attracted to the city by mining and the related businesses that developed. Earp operated four bars and gambling houses in the Stingaree, what is now called the Gaslamp Quarter. Considering his reputation for womanizing, it’s likely he came to know our building quite well.

“Probably the best Hostel I've ever seen. The Staff is very friendly, the beds comfortable and the restrooms clean. Exact in the centre of San Diego's Nightlife offers a great opportunity to visit this beatiful city. Especially liked the Taco's Tuesday with Piou and the Hiking Tour with the Guys... Till next Time :)”
“Awesome place! One of the coolest places I've stayed at. The staff were all very helpful and provided lots of information on fun group activities and the services provided. Accommodations including rooming, showers, restrooms were all very clean and up to par. Loved the breakfast provided in the morning and environment was inviting and fun. Would definitely recommend.”
