FUN... FUN.. FUN.... there you go... that's a fairly bang-on-accurate description of our stay at USA Hostel San Diego. Oh the fun we had! But remember... "what happens in San Diego, stays in San Diego... sssshhhhh!"
Now I've summarised our stay, I'll tell you a little bit more about the digs... we three gals rocked up (in our convertible Mustang don't you know) to the epicentre of The Gaslamp District to find the hostel nestled in between a couple of bars/restaurants... hungry? thirsty? look no further... just roll out the front door. The location could only be better if the beach was on the other side of the road (it wasn't...it was a 20 minute bus ride away). If you want to go out and drink and dance the night away till the early hours, this is the spot and most definitely the hostel for you.
THIS IS A PARTY HOSTEL... THEY LIKE TO HAVE FUN!!! If you don't like a party and don't like fun, maybe consider somewhere else... but if you want to meet amazing folk from all over the world and really let go for a few nights, then get booking immediately.
From the moment we stepped inside the place, we were warmly greeted by everyone, we fell in love straight away. Checked in we were assisted upstairs with our MASSIVE bags to room 23. Oh room 23! A fab duplex of a room... sofa bed on the ground floor... fridge for essentials (beer)... flatscreen TV... stairs leading up to the 'attic' room, double bed, it sounds bigger than it was but full of character.
The rest of the place is a rainbow of colour and feels like it's hosting some very happy memories within it's walls. Communal bathrooms...fine....small lounge area....free wifi...kitchen...great breakfast to ease the pain of the night before.
Highlights: BEER PONG! Bar crawl. Meeting the brilliant people we did.
Recommended: Book a couple of nights at The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs for rehab after your stay here.
Would we go back?... In a heartbeat.
