What makes us a top hostel in San Diego?*
Could be our 25 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. 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.
Come visit us and enjoy the group activities, including our infamous pub crawls.

“I liked this place and the location is great because it's right at the hot spot, bars, restaurants, supermarket, and public transportation is all within walking distance. Very clean place, they cleaned it several times a day, probably one of the cleanest hostels I've been to. Beds are very comfortable, even top bunks. They are semi covered, which gives space to talk with others but also privacy. Lockers were big and good. One volonteer was really cool, from Morroco I believe!”
