“Good times” — Mar 21, 2021 Lucky D's more like Lucky Me. This hostel was a truly great experience! The staff were all extremely friendly and gave great recommendations on things to do around town. The private room was simplistic and comfortable, but the common rooms and even the hallways were outstanding! I also appreciated the shower and bathrooms that are at this location, all were very clean. Overall I will be returning for the great vibes here alone. Thanks for making my San Diego trip that much better Lucky D's!
“Lucky D’s is like a family.” — May, 2021 Lucky D's is like a family. The atmosphere is probably one of the best I have ever experienced in a hostel. The people are kind, the location is excellent, and the staff are amazing. Love it here!!
“Love this place, great people=great vibe” — March 2021 Great place, helpful and accomodating staff. The rooms and common areas are cleaned daily by the staff and several volunteers. In contrast to other hostels Lucky D has several common rooms that create a social and homely feeling. Best of all, the hostel is centraly located and resonably priced
“Attending the OFC Conference” — March 2020 This is two years back to back I've stayed at Lucky D's Hostel in San Diego. The people operating this place are great, friendly & very helpful. The atmosphere is openly social, I met several nice people who were also staying there. I appreciate what this establishment offers to travelers looking for a nice, low key affordable place to hang their hat!
“Exceptional” — 31st Dec 2019 Great place, very clean. The people are friendly and the kitchen is amazing.
“Exceptional” — 20 April 2021 My first stay at a hostel i had an amazing time.
