    Had a great stay here!... The best thing about this place is the location... just steps to the beach. I stayed in the coed dorms in one of the bunks. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in San Diego. You can't beat the price in that location.

    The staff was nice and helpful and the check-in process is easy. The main office is comfortable and has a couple couches where you can hang out. For the price and the location alone, California Dreams is everything you could ask of a hostel -- a crash pad with a good vibe and clean environment.

    I could not have been happier here with my stay. It's my first US hostel. I wasn't expecting much after walking past other hostels. I'm open minded but appreciate cleanliness. The food was great and the kitchen was easy to use. Lots of friendly peoples and the ocean is 50m away. The sunsets are amazing, the area is perfect, and I have had an amazing time. Thanks guys!
