Located just a few blocks from the waterfront in the Little Italy neighborhood of downtown, you can enjoy a great night’s sleep at a California styled hotel in San Diego. ITH Hostels Downtown San Diego offers cozy beds, comfortable facilities and friendly hosts who have a passion for showcasing the local culture. The San Diego International Airport, Gaslamp District, and San Diego Convention Center are all nearby and easily accessible.
Housed in a remodeled Victorian building from the early 1900’s, The International Travelers House Downtown San Diego Hostel has spaces for all types of travelers regardless of their industry to create a social, friendly and fun atmosphere. Make yourself at home and enjoy our beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces to relax on during your stay with us.
Inside you’ll find San Diego based decor, original paintings and art by our very own. You can book a private room for extra space and privacy or save money with a single bed in a dorm room. All rooms have been equipped with the latest bed designs for a comfortable night sleep. The exterior grounds offer multiple spaces to meet and spend time with other travelers. All the guests gather regularly in the evenings to trade stories and laughs.
Social hostel by night, our friendly hostel is also designed to be a place where you can relax and hang out or work while on the road. You’ll also meet super-friendly travelers and soak in the ultra-homey vibe. Wellness and yoga are close to our hearts at ITH, and so we have partnered with top-rated studios for you to experience and feel great during your stay. Welcome home!
We are James Black and Bobby Dyer, cofounders of ITH Hostels. Ever since an early age, we have always had a passion for hosting and a love for travel but weren’t sure how we could combine the two.
After meeting each other while working at another hostel in San Diego, we knew we could help travelers with a better experience during their trip to San Diego. After over a year of searching on craigslist for a potential property, we found the perfect spot, and ITH Hostels was born!
We believe that traditional accommodations leave out the most important parts of your journey: the chance to open your mind and experience the world through another traveler’s eyes.
Our sustainably driven communal lodging strives to educate each guest in the walk of life that we call hosteling. Open your mind by meeting world travelers and learning new cultural practices of how people really live in their communities. Look beyond the hostels as a simple place of rest, and embrace the unique experience you’re about to be immersed in.
