If you are not in your 20s anymore... my suggestion is to choose another solution. The hostel is in a very nice central position, close to Gaslamp quarter but is very dirty, stinky and noisy. The stink is the worst in the rooms. Breakfast is...More

There are two sets of lockers in every room. In one I could fit my carry on suitcase, my backpack and there was still room for one more suitcase. the other ones are smaller, like for a purse or small stuff. Hope this helps.
