    Booked a Bed Did Not Get One”

    I stayed one night and it was fine. Met some great folks and staff was fine this night. 4 bed room. I booked a second night online and asked about if I would be needing to change rooms. A manager said no and to check in later. I checked in around 10pm with another manager and he claimed there was an empty bed in the room for me. I went on to decompress from my day, eat and drink with folks in the common area. When I returned to my room all four beds were full. I slept in the driver seat of my car. I have heard one word of mouth story that this happened before and another one from a google review. I called to confirm I would not be charged. I was told I would get a call back when they checked on it. I did not recieve any calls back nor an email response when I emailed. Avoid ITH hostels unless it is your only option. I have heard many bad reviews from others hanging with folks in better managed hostels in San Diego. P.S If y'all at ITH read these and want to reach out to rectify your mistakes you have my number.
