Lucky D's Hostel

Visit hotel website
Certificate of Excellence
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 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.

My first time in one and pleasantly surprised. Clean, positive thought provoking artistry and slogans everywhere. Daily activities to encourage inclusion. Rooms are simple and efficient while the kitchen was expansive. I would definitely stay the again!

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.
