Great Hostel! Location is perfect. You can basically step on the beach from the front door. I stayed there for 4 nights in January. Staff was friendly and breakfast is great.
The rooms are alright but don't expect anything fancy. Some of the lockers in my room seemed a little bit wrecked but nothing was stolen during my stay. Allover nice people and a very friendly/ layed back atmosphere. The area is great you got lots of little shops, bars and restaurant with a typical beach community feeling. In addition, some of S.D. greatest food places are just around the corner (Southbeach Grill, Hodads to name a few)
If'd come back to S.D. this is the place were I'd wanna stay!
