Two of us stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff was extremely helpful, the volunteers Sunday morning were warm, friendly and welcoming. Free breakfast, coffee/tea, wifi daily. A clean, quiet, and respectful space. Couldn't have asked for more. As far as hosteling goes, this was really everything you could ask for. The courtyard area was a great bonus too! The only complaints we had were the distance from downtown and lack of any reasonable public transportation options, but you can't fault the hostel for that. As for the facilities themselves, it should be noted that the wifi is not accessible in the dorms (only the common areas) and the washroom situation could be dicey if the hostel is full (especially the men's, as I understand there is only one stall). Otherwise - an awesome, inexpensive place to stay within walking distance of Ocean Beach and Point Loma.
