Gaslamp Hostel Reviews

Location and Contact


• We can be hard to spot due to the outdoor dining taking over the street. We are 5th Avenue closer to G Street than F Street. If you are looking at Gaslamp Pizza we are two doors to the left. If you are looking at Whiskey Girl, We are two doors to the right. When you arrive at 726 5th Avenue, look for the Panevino and Asti restaurants. Our purple door is located between them.
• Airport - only a 10-15 minute cab/Lyft/Uber ride. The quickest way to get to us. Usually around $17US.
• Train - get off at the Santa Fe Depot (not Old Town). You can walk or ride from there. If walking, plan for about 15 minutes (.8 mi). Walk out of the station to Broadway, make a left. Follow that to 5th Ave, make a right. Follow that to 726. Purple Door. We are on the right. If you hit G Street, you've gone a few doors too far.
• Bus - About a 20 minute walk from the Greyhound Terminal you'll head Northwest on National Avenue toward 13th St. Continue straight onto 13th St. Turn left on Imperial Ave. Turn right onto 12th Ave. Turn left onto J Street. Turn right onto 5th Ave. Follow to 726 on the left. Purple Door.
• Driving - Likely you're using GPS, so we'll just help here with parking.
• 1. Rent a parking pass from us. It's $20 per night / $110 per week (refundable $25 key deposit) in a monitored garage just 1 ½ blocks away. You'll have 24-hour in-and-out privileges.
• 2. Park It on Market. You can enter from 6th or 7th Avenues. $1 per hour from 3 am to 6 pm. $5 from 6 pm to 3 am Mon-Thurs. $10 on Friday-Sunday. Each time you leave, you pay. During events though the pricing changes to $15 for 12 hours and then the $1 per hour rate kicks in again.
• 3. Ace Parking at Horton Plaza. 8 pm to 5 am Sunday ââ'¬â€oe Wednesday is $10, Thursday ââ'¬â€oe Saturday $20. Then $2 per every 15 minutes or part thereof. Daily maximum is $48.
• 4. Metered street parking is for 2 hour shifts only. Most meters are free after 8 pm until 8 am but be SURE to check on the meter or street sign. There is NO parking on 5th Avenue at night on the weekends. CARS WILL BE TOWED. We don't want your holiday ruined, so don't chance it!
• All meters are free on Sundays.
• 5. Non metered street parking can be found but you'll be about a 10-minute walk away.
