International Travelers House Adventure Hostel Reviews

ITH Adventure Hostel San Diego is a comfy, beach-themed party hostel in an old Victorian house in San Diego’s vibrant Little Italy area.

The Location

ITH Adventure Hostel San Diego is in the Little Italy area, near plenty of restaurants and cafes along India Street. The hostel itself is on a quieter street, within walking distance to attractions including Waterfront Park, Maritime Museum, and the Downtown area.

This is certainly a party hostel, with a nightly gathering on the front patio area and organised activities such as pub crawls. When it is time to get some sleep, there are free earplugs offered at reception.

The hostel is served by a number of buses, including a route for the short trip to San Diego Airport. There are also shared bikes and electric scooters dotted around the streets to get about San Diego.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel features dorms of four to ten beds in both mixed and female options, with en suite bathrooms included in rooms. The dorms are split amongst the main house and individual smaller buildings out the back. Dorm rooms are accessed with electronic keycards. There is a short flight of stairs to get to the reception entrance.

The dorm beds and linens are fine, though there are unfortunately no power sockets or privacy curtains at the beds. There are lockers available in the rooms for use with large padlocks; bring your own or buy at reception when available.

The en suite bathroom we experienced is quick to get dirty and its fittings could use an upgrade; however, the shower has decent hot water. There are also unisex toilets and showers available in the main building. Towels are provided free of charge.

Common Spaces

In fine weather, hostel guests gather in the front courtyard area, especially on Wednesdays for free BBQ night. A TV room is available just inside the main entrance near reception. The free Wi-Fi works ok throughout the hostel. The kitchen is small and not really suitable for cooking, though the regular calendar of the hostel’s activities includes some group meals on offer. Free breakfast is provided, including bagels and spreads, cereals, boiled eggs, and bananas. There is also complimentary tea available anytime at reception area.

Summary

ITH Adventure Hostel has a strong party vibe, so if it’s socialising that you’re keen on, you’ll find the atmosphere here hard to beat. There are also plenty of cheap activities taking place from the hostel, including trips to Mexico over the nearby border. While the hostel’s Victorian building is charming, it is showing its age and facilities are due for renovations.
