HI San Diego Downtown

An Art-Filled Hostel in the Heart of the Gaslamp

Located in the heart of the Gaslamp quarter, we’ll help you make the most of your stay in San Diego and make new friends from around the world while you’re at it. Our newly renovated, art-filled hostel features a game room, shared lounge spaces (set up for easy distancing), and a central location close to all the public transportation you'll need to explore America’s Finest City.

The hostel is staffed by local experts, and we love to share information about hidden gems you won't find in the brochures. Our neighborhood boasts endless restaurants, bars, cafes, and nightlife. We’re just a short bus or car ride away from the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, and some of America's best beaches. We’re also a quick walk from the San Diego Convention Center, the Amtrak station, and the Greyhound station.
