ITH Zoo Hostel & Co-Live is located in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego. It's the closest hostel to the world famous San Diego Zoo. ITH Zoo is a very social hostel with an emphasis on community. In fact, it's also a co-living space for students and other young people staying long term in San Diego.
There are common areas for every purpose. Chill out with a book in the library, watch a movie in the lounge, or challenge a new friend to a game of pool. With daily activities scheduled both day and night, there's always something to do. Start the day with a free continental breakfast and then join us after the day's adventure is through for a free community dinner, seven nights a week!
The atmosphere in the ITH Zoo Hostel is just amazing. The staff is all super friendly and helpful and they play along with the games or other stuff you're doing. The free breakfast and dinner was a super big plus, the food was really good. There are also at least one or sometimes two fun activities per day planned. I only stayed there for 3 days, but I felt so close to everyone there after such a short time, yes cheesy. Would definitely recommend, and would love to come back myself!

This hostel is in a great location, close to a Rite Aid, Whole Foods, and a bunch of restaurants. It is in a great place to great around without having to be in one specific kind of neighborhood. It is also nice to be able to walk to Balboa Park. Staff was great and friendly. It was also really nice to have breakfast and dinner as part of the accommodation fees--quite unique from my experience with hostels here and abroad. I would recommend this hostel!

Awesome hostel, great staff, cool vibe, great neighborhood. A little hot at night but the awesome atmosphere, and free breakfast (and dinner!!!) more than makes up for it. Beds comfortable, and had the largest hostel showers I’ve seen. Definitely will be staying again.

If you like the beach, there's no better hostel in San Diego than ITH Beach Bungalow Surf Hostel. This hostel sits right on the sands of Pacific Beach. This colorful hostel is perfect if you'd like to surf all day, enjoy a beautiful sunset on the deck, and then party all night. With a mixture of dorms and privates, it's great for solo travelers, friends, or couples. Nightly dinners ensure you'll make a new friend.
With bicycles, surfboards, and wetsuits available for rent, the Beach Bungalow has everything you need to enjoy Pacific Beach. We'll see you on the sands!
Bicycle, surf board, and wetsuit rentals
Paid Parking. Reservations required
Great to eat breakfast on the deck, lounging looking out at the waves and surfers over the heads of people walking on the boardwalk . The hostel also has shared food prepared nightly and tons of ideas on what and where to hang. Great place.

This place is awesome! Good crew all round, great location on the beach and in a great spot. Can't recommend this place enough. Would be awesome if they had private rooms available during our stay but didn't matter too much everyone in this location had a great attitude and nothing was an issue. Would definitely return.

If you want a hostel that feels like a home, to make lifelong friends, relax on the beach, or party the night away then this is the hostel for you. I intended on staying for one night and ended up there for a week, if I didn't have a flight back home I would never have left. The staff really make this hostel worthwhile and with events every night it's perfect.

Spread across a number of buildings in San Diego's Little Italy neighborhood, ITH Adventure Hostel has something for everyone. Each building caters to a different type of traveler, from mixed dorms for those looking to enjoy Downtown San Diego's nightlife to premium rooms for business travelers. Despite the disconnect layout of the buildings, ITH Adventure Hostel is a very social hostel with those looking to meet new friends gathering in the communal area each night.
The location is a perfect base for exploring San Diego with most downtown attractions in walking distance from the hostel.
Free tea & coffee
Private rooms, mixed dorms, female dorms
I had a great stay at ITH Adventure! I’ve been traveling through the US and am in my last week and it was just what I needed! Great atmosphere, friendly staff and clean rooms, really quirky decorated with everything you would need. I was in a full dorm and didn’t have problem waiting for the bathroom in the morning. They had a BBQ on the patio with some music playing which made for a lovely chill vibe. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a great place on a budget in San Diego!

Easily my favorite hostel! It's very inexpensive and extremely comfortable to stay in! Everyone is so nice and every night is a lot of fun. Great outdoor and indoor atmosphere! They put on great free BBQs almost every night and have a bunch of other activities. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in San Diego!

This place has become my home over the last week and a half after I moved to San Diego from Denver. The staff is magnificent, this is the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at, and I met my new best friend during my stay. You can't not stay here if you're visiting San Diego. Also make sure to listen and hang out with Andrew each night, he has incredible words of life wisdom.
