We have a quiet time that begin at 11:00 pm each night and the lights go out at midnight. Our quiet time in enforced so that all guests can get some peace and rest. For guests who want to stay up late, there is a variety of bars and entertainment options within walking distance from the hostel.
My stay was easy and simple. I got to the hostel, was checked in, shown around, and left to settle in. I got in quite late (around 10pm) and it was no problem at all. I was invited to join an evening bar tour, but decided to stay in as I had just arrived. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and the environment was incredibly relaxing and open. There is no AC in the rooms but the fans make it comfortable. They provide free towels and the food is a definite bonus. Other than that, the only word of warning I would give travels is that San Diego is not a walkable city unless you only want to stay in one area. I got a bus pass and it was a bit of a pain it totally doable. Other than that, my time here was brief but just what I was looking for. I would love to stay with this hostel again sometime to fully experience all of its amenities.
ITH is the perfect accomodation in SD for an eco-friendly lifestyle, to meet new people and join activities. Everything is very well organized.
It's full of open air shared spaces in the garden.
Breakfast and dinner included are a nice add-on. Definitely I would recommend it!
This is just the B.E.S.T hostel that I never been ! A really Nice team, really clean place and cosy ! Cool activities , it s a really good price/quality
If I go to San Diego again , I will for sure sleep in this Amazing place !
Thank you again !
This is a quaint hostel situated in Little Italy;a nice location. This hostel did provide quality service during my stay. There are only two negatives, and they are attributed to me. I write about them so other future travelers who are very gregarious/outgoing (specifically males) won't have these similar issues: 1) I was too noisy at night outside with other guests and in my room (while going to the urinal) and 2) I received guest complaints about alleged unwanted staring in a co-ed room while I was talking with them. I got the boot the next day (via text/email) without discussion. Overall, this is a good hostel with good staff. Unfortunately, it wasn't a good fit for me. But travelers play it chill and read/ask up-front about any policies you need to adhere to and you should be fine.
Bobby and Steve were very responsive and accommodating. The staff at ITH Adventure Hostel were welcoming. Facilities were very clean and our stay was very enjoyable. Everyday the hostel hosted activities - all free, for everyone to do together. This made meeting people very fun and exciting! I have been recommending friends to stay here whenever they are in SD.
