Staff, Location, and funniez timez it’s got it all
Well I have stayed here before and that was ok but I would have liked a lower bunk bed. This year I was here for San Diego Pride 2019 and stayed for 2 nights. This time around I did get a lower bed which did indeed help a lot. The bed was nice and good to sleep. My roommates were nice and kept to themselves and that was an added bonus since I needed to get as much sleep as possible due to me volunteering for Pride. The showers were good but the one with the much bigger space the shower handle to operate it was loose but still managed to use it. But the most important thing was the staff was so helpful with my needs and I will always thank them for that. Overall I will come back and also an added bonus is: LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. P.S. I wished I knew the staffs name that I met on Saturday night at the front desk. There was girl working the front but another colleague of hers was there to and he was helpful with information. Also I kind of thought he was a hottie jejeje. Thanks to all and see you next time.

Bad smell
The place need better ventilation, there’s a bad smell all over. Bed sheets don’t smell fresh. Beds are not comfortable, some guests looked like local homeless people.

Taking a kick back attitude
For the price its ok. Not for a family or suitcases. Travel light and work on your patience. Balboa park nearby, and places to east or hang out. Roomates won't like you if you SNORE!!.. If your a senior please request a bottom bunk bed. Lol !!.. I kinda liked it and certainly stay there again!
