The name suite this place it's relaxing and surf boards are free to rent, so surf as much as you like. The place is clean and well maintained. The person running is also great. He tries to make guest stay comfortable. This hostel is more spacious then other hostels. More place to chill and hangout with friends. Instead of just room with a bunkbed like in Rosarito or Ensenada. The good things it has barbecue, bonfire place, so host has some activities for the week.

Lazy Lobster was my first hostel experience and I had a great time! Comfy beds, plenty of hot water for showers, awesome deck with space to chill out watching the ocean and super short walk to the beach below. I would visit again!

Super nice place!! A Clean Hostel with a nice big porch and living room. The staff is super nice (Sean showed me the whole area:)). You can go surfing with the Boards from the Hostel or do a nice hike in the nearby cannyon. And you can go and get the best lokal Almond Tequila and the real good mexican food. I can totally recommend this hostel. Go there! And it is near the US border so perfect for a trip to mexico.

One of the best places to stay in San Diego. Good sleep, good shower, clean towels, coffee, pancakes and eggs for breakfast and the most friendly staff. Check in was easy and, if you like to cook, kitchen is fully equipped.
This hostel is amazing. The private rooms are exactly what my husband and I were looking for. Room and bathroom with ocean view, comfy beds, quiet nights but yet, in the heart of the action. We stayed for a week and it was excellent for us to work online and enjoy the beach. They have double desk, coffee and tea maker in the room, free breakfast, smart TV and the staff is awesome. I will def come back!
