A cool hostel with friendly international staffmembers in downtown SD. It has a lot of rooms to hang out and socialize. If you want to, you can party everyday as they have an event schedule for the week. Would come again!

Was the first hostel I stayed at and now I wonder why I didn't do this before. That's the perfect place if you're in a mood to meet people, interact and have fun. And the dormitory is not a good place if your intention is...More

The hostel is very centrally located and offers fun stuff like discounts on drinks at local bars. The people I met there were very friendly. The free breakfast is very plain, but for the price, it's nice that they even offer a breakfast at all....More

Lucky D’s is fun, comfortable, clean and safe. It has an amazing atmosphere and a perfect location. Lucky D’s Downtown San Diego Hostel is steps away from the Gaslamp District, home of San Diego’s hottest ...More nightlife, restaurants, bars and shops. It’s close to all of the city’s attractions and the best beaches are a quick bus ride away. Lucky D’s staff are wonderful. They are knowledgeable, helpful and will make sure you have a good time. San Diego is a fantastic city and Lucky D’s is in the middle of the action. There are fun things to do every day, a party every night and plenty of free food. You’ll have so many new friends you won’t know what to do with them all. Less

There are two sets of lockers in every room. In one I could fit my carry on suitcase, my backpack and there was still room for one more suitcase. the other ones are smaller, like for a purse or small stuff. Hope this helps.
