a view of our glass atrium with a painting of a 'madam' from the hostel's brothel past on the wall



Gaslamp Hostel's unique look harkens back to the early days of San Diego when the neighborhood was home to saloons, dance halls, and houses of 'ill repute'. 

Our building has been a hotel, a brothel, and is rumored to be haunted! But its large atrium and skylight keep it bright and inviting. 


We're looking for artists to help adorn our walls. If you're an artist, ask us how you can contribute and save on your visit at the same time!
