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.

“The hostel was pretty amazing. Starting with the location, which is right where you want to be when going out or anything really because it's in the heart of San Diego and ending with the staff is absolutely fantastic and make your stay great with different activities but also just with their personalities. Everything is laid-back and fantastic. We really had a great time for the weekend and I'm for sure already thinking about coming back! ”
“Cozy. Clean. Convenient. As a frequent hostel visitor I can rate this place as 10/10. Every convenience is on the spot. Kitchen, breakfast, laundry, showers, towels, linen. The place is kept clean and the staff is very friendly location is great in the center of downtown and the price is fair.”
