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.

“Awesome hostel in the heart of the Gaslamp! The room is great in every aspect. Clean sheets, privacy shade and light on each bed, big-sized lockers for each bed. The bathrooms look like they're newly done. Staff were friendly. Above all, the location couldn't be better right in the middle of the action in the gaslamp quarter.”
