    The location is very good between the airport and downtown. The staff was reasonably friendly and made efforts to accommodate requests.

    Essentially no wifi in the first room I was in. I was offered a different room where it was somewhat better but still slow and intermittent. Wifi is essential like water and air these days... it shouldn't be that difficult to add routers/boosters or whatever so that it works everywhere. I was going to stay a couple days longer but due to lack of wifi ended up moving to a hotel a couple of blocks away for five bucks more per night that also had a private bathroom.

    i did not like a single thing about this hostel

    Kitchen is there but absolutely filthy and dirty. you can not cook there. In booking.com they said breakfast included but they offer just a pack of bread (looked like leftovers to me) on top of a disgusting microwave. I was there 3 nights in a 5 female dorm and the bathroom and room has not been cleaned ONCE even though the waste bin where soo full that they packed all the waste next to it. also i got bites there from insects and my bites got infected! there is one staff member who is simply crazy!! seriously i wouldnt ever go there again even if they paid ME!!! it was the worst hostel ever ! Also they dont have many guests (no wonder) so if you are going there to make friends go somewhere else

    Room very nice and good location. 2 minutes on walking from little Italy and 15 minutes from the Harbor

    Kitchen disgusting, stinky and bad smell. Unforniture, no microwave, no bowls, no glasses, no forks, no knives, no plates.. is it normal for a hostel? Never happened before!

    The staff was friendly except one Asian staff who was rude and did not show any hospitality.

    San Diego is hot. The ceiling fans above/near my bed was not working. However, the staff arrange a 6 inch fan, which was not effective. The breakfast need to have more variety like adding fruits.

    There is nothing to like about this place.

    I've stayed in a lot of hostels across the world and this is by far the worst. In fact, it is misadvertised as a hostel (really, it is frequented by very sketchy and dangerous people on drugs). I'd intended to stay here for three days but left after a night to a hostel in the Gaslamp Quarter (much better!!). The reception closes for some strange reason and I waited an hour and a half for the receptionist to show up. The hostel itself is incredibly dark and cold-looking, and I saw very few people in the hostel. Those that I did see were either incredibly rude or warned me about my stuff being stolen. The room I was in looked as though it had never been cleaned, and at one point there was no toilet paper in the hostel. The people I shared the room with seemed odd and I didn't feel safe in this place, hence why I decided to leave. If you are a prospective traveller thinking of heading to San Diego and are reading reviews of potential hostels, bear the negative ones in mind, because they are not lying about this place! The RK Hostel should be closed down.
