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.

“I would absolutely stay again! Staff was friendly and so was everyone staying at the hostel. I really liked the social environment of the place, but you can also be by yourself if that's what you like. Location was perfect, really close to a lot of fun stuff. It was also clean.”
“Amazing place in the heart of San Diego! It was the first time I stay the night in this city and I couldn't have chosen a better place! This hostel has everything you need, it is clean, quiet in the night, the staff is helpful and the environment is really friendly. What I like the most about this place is its location. It is surrounded by restaurants, bar and clubs and the zone is appealing. So don't think twice, this is the place to stay in!”
