Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Clean, convenient, good amenities. The girl who works the front desk is such a nice person. I really liked her. Only problem is that the hostel doesn’t have any activities. It was very mellow and felt a bit antisocial. It is very well kept; worth the price is you are looking for a place to chill near the beach.

Surprised at how few reviews there are of this place. Stayed for a week last summer and had an absolute blast. Very clean, the outdoor common area is huge. A block from the beach with tons of restaurants and bars nearby, They were just getting events back up, but had a blast at taco Tuesday/bar crawl led by Cassidy as well as her secret beach session. The people that were staying at the same time I was were awesome, one night one guy got a group of us off to sunset cliffs. A different night a bonfire was organized by a different guest. I can't wait for my upcoming visit!

I have visited literally hundreds of hostels in Europe and US and this is in my top 5!!! Super clean, well-run and friendly safe space for a single lady visiting SD for a Dead Show, stayed 3 nights and would give 6 stars if possible. Excellent location in Ocean Beach, has a great village feeling and transportation was accessible and close. Beach was a block away for strolling and lots of great food/entertainment/activity options right out the front door. Met some super nice people and just had a great visit! Thank you.
