USA Hostels SAN DIEGO

What makes us a top hostel in San Diego?*

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.

To see what’s happening in our city, scroll down the page to our “Special Events” section, the ‘Activities’ area or check out our Facebook page.
