Galavanting Not Mandatory. (But Highly Encouraged.)

As the closest hostel to the famous San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park, the CoLive Balboa Park is perfect for explorers looking to be centrally located. Conveniently located in eclectic Hillcrest, travelers can explore amazing international cuisine, diverse shopping and thrift stores nearby, and easy get to the many diverse neighborhoods nearby. Despite its great location, the CoLive doesn’t feel touristy, but has more a laid back neighborhood vibe.

The CoLive Balboa Park has every space a traveler could need, and creates the perfect atmosphere to easily meet people and make new friends. A social lounge with billiards tables and art chalk walls, an indoor courtyard to relax and get some fresh air, and even a library to get down to business. Local food vendors also provide meals for our guests which brings everyone together to socialize. 

This space has a great energy created by the diverse group of travelers and students who visit us. Expect CoLive Balboa Park to be an adventure, and to leave with new friends from around the world.
