“Fun, friendly, great times.” — Mar 26, 2017 Single woman traveller, felt safe and included in the activities - staff were friendly and went above to make sure guests had a good time. McFaddens pub night is must with the hostel! Wifi was strong throughout, rooms clean - private rooms on 4th floor are the quietest and least busy for shared washrooms. Not too noisy at night but ear plugs at the front desk. $10 a day bike rental with bike pick up and drop off at the hostel can't be beat!!! Close to the gaslamp quarter without being too noisy.
“Best Deal in Town!” — Apr 23, 2017 What a great and friendly place! I am an older traveller and just want an affordable and cozy place to stay. This place was perfect. The price was awesome, the beds were comfy and the wifi was more than adequate. There were 2 showers and 2 bathrooms on the floor and I never had to wait for either. The kitchen is a wonderful space and with breakfast included you can't go wrong! The hostel is in a good location with lots of restaurants nearby and is walking distance to the harbour.
“Amazing Experience” — May 29th 2017 I had never stayed in a hostel before staying at Lucky D’s. I was so surprised by the positive and friendly environment at Lucky D’s. I made so many new friends from all over the world and I enjoyed living in a culturally diverse community of people. A staff member, Addison Ray, invited us to many events and activities that Lucky D’s was hosting. Addison and the rest of the staff were so kind and welcoming. A highlight of my trip was going to a bonfire in San Diego at a nearby beach. I will be back soon!
“Great place to stay” — May 30th 2017 It was my first time staying at a hostel and I will definitely be going back to Lucky D’s. The place is unique and clean and the staff is very friendly and sweet. I stayed couple nights there and I was able to make friends and hang out with people from all over the world. If I ever visit San Diego again, I will definitely be staying at Luck D’s. Thank you for making my trip so special.
“Fantastic location” — 6 Feb 2017 Had a great time at Lucky D’s. Met nice people, staff is very friendly and partying hard :D. The location is fantastic in the middle of the Gaslamp quarter. The kitchen is the place to eat & meet. The entire hostel was exceptionally clean and tidy – Will definitely stay in this hostel again next time I’m visiting SD! And hopefully that will be soon again!
“Lots to choose from” — 12 Aug 2015 Great place and awesome location. The staff are super friendly, the hostel is spotless clean, the mattresses are very comfortable to sleep on, breakfast is free and there’s lots to choose from, even pancakes. Every other day the hostel offers free dinner, on other days you have a choice of different activities. There’s a very friendly atmosphere.
