2.0 Bad

Cons:The room was filthy, I was overcharged. When I told kayak they overcharged me they refused to correct the issue. I lost my money and slept in my car thanks kayak. I'll never use your app or anything affiliated with your company. Filing a complaint with bbb

2.0 Bad


10.0 Excellent

Cons:I didn't like that it was no smoking, that would of been nice to have that option. Great other than that.

2.0 Bad

Cons:Staff was nice but unprofessional, I shared a room with 5 homeless men. Upon arrival, room had foul stench and there was no mattress on the bed, simply a foam mattress topper, no more than 2 inches thick. Pillow was comparable to a bag with a newspaper stuffed into it. Overall not an ideal place, very loud and filthy. White bed frames were full of dirt and questionable stains. Bathrooms were small and not cleaned enough for their mass use. After, reluctantly falling asleep I woke up in the middle of the night to itching and several bug bites, only to find small bugs in my sheets. I can not say for sure that they were bed bugs, but regardless they left welt sized bites along the side of my stomach. Overall, horrible experience I left less than 3 hours after arriving and opted to sleep in my car for the rest of my stay in San Diego. Having stayed in hostels abroad in europe and asia, the Hostel Habibi would more accurately be described as a homeless youth shelter. Upon trying to request a refund, I was referred to my booking website, whom upon calling the hotel was told that they wouldn't refund me for the rest of my stay. Steer Clear of Hostel Habibi
