When you choose Gaslamp Hostel not only will you live in a unique, historic building in the most central location in San Diego, but you'll become part of our extended family. Whether you are an international student, going to school locally seeking student housing or just need short-term housing, we strive to provide a cozy, inclusive, and warm atmosphere so you'll feel at home. 

We want guests to be comfortable being who they are and ask they also respect the opinions and boundaries of their fellow guests to provide a peaceful, accepting setting for all.  Our mission is to show the best of San Diego to domestic and international travelers. All occupants will be asked to review and sign our house rules on acceptance. 

This is a smoke-free building. Any 'recreational' activity has to take place outside the building. That said, anyone 21 years or older is welcome to consume their own alcohol on premises. 

We provide linens and furniture. If there's something you need that we don't have, ask and we'll see if we can accommodate you. If you just must have that favorite blankie or pillow, we will launder for you before taking it to your room. 

While we love our furry friends, we cannot accommodate pets. However, we do have a canine ambassador, so if you need a little puppy time, our buddy will be thrilled to help out. 

more than a crash pad,

we're a community.
