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.

As a woman with my boyfriend, I don't feel safe here. My boyfriend feels the same way. This is the staffs home and they treat it like it's their own in a bad way. Yesterday there was a guy shooting up outside in broad daylight and today the hostel staff were fighting outside. I don't feel safe and do not recommend this place. It looks nice but is not what it seems. All the staff seem to be constantly outside trying to holler at girls as they walk in while smoking. Quiet hours are not adhered to and there is a LOT of traffic in the hallways. There's about 20 people per hallway and at all times of the night people are going back and forth and every time after a crazy event, you're on edge and wake up. Stay somewhere else. STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE. For the price a motel six and the safety of a door is worth it. ALSO, it's ten blocks from the gaslamp area which has cheaper and honestlysafer accomodations.

Best hostel for comfort in San Diego for sure. The owners Brandon and Derrick are there for your every need. I am big into sales and digital currency and the owner Derrick is very knowledgeable with both. I also love sports and they showed me how to stream the games on my phone. This place is great and if I was ever going to visit San Diego again I would definitely stay here. The rooms are private comfortable and the bathrooms are large with soap and cleaned daily. Thanks guys!

Aggressive towards me from the moment I walked in the flea and fly ridden lobby. He was again twice more in next 24 hours. Left 1 day into my 5 day booking. Derrick was amazing and gave me full refund and suggested somewhere else 10 mins away that was fantastic, cheaper and had a room with less guests and more importantly no druggo guests.
