This hostel has had more ghost sightings than we can count!
Before becoming a hostel, this building was a hotel located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter, aka the red light district. Considering its location, it tended to attract a particular kind of guest...
It wasn't long before the hotel gained a pretty bad reputation, and eventually, it was known as the worst hotel in the area.
Today it's been transformed into a vibrant space for travelers, but the hostel's past still lingers.
Multiple guests have claimed they heard a baby crying despite no babies being in the building. Other guests have reported seeing flashes of light and hearing footsteps when no one else was around.
One guest shared the story of seeing a man in old time clothes walking down the stairs only to disappear when he reached the bottom.
Another guest was jolted awake by the sound of an object falling and crashing to the ground, only nothing had fallen. What was even more strange is that her roommate was jolted awake by the same sound.
The Gaslamp hostel offers ghost tours of the area and the staff could go on and on about all the haunted happenings they've encountered.
