          Bright, trendy hostel in Ocean Beach!”

          Super cute hostel with good vibes just blocks away from the beach. You can even see the ocean from the sidewalk in front of the hostel. Very clean, high security and plentiful bathrooms. I was traveling with a group of 5 friends and we rented out a 6 bed dorm to ourselves. Despite having our own larger group, it was still easy to meet other travelers in the common areas. This hostel has an amazing setup with large kitchen, social patio and a cozy den with couches, instruments and a TV. We were only staying two nights and spent most of our time out exploring larger San Diego. My only regret was not being able to actually hang around the property more often. Such a nice environment that next time I visit San Diego, I will add in some down time to hang out here by the beach! See you again, USA Hostels!

          basically the "hot" hostel for tall, Victoria secret type beautiful woman under 26”

          Organized, well run. This hostel can be akward for middle ages traveler. 95% of the guests looked like six foot tall supermodels under 26, since they are Europeans they are taller than Americans. Anyway, being their parents age I didnt have anyone to talk to because it was all flirting non stop. The only heavy girl also sat alone, and the only other woman over 30 also sat alone. hostel is very small, imagine 45 people living in a large American house. It's well run, on the best street in San Diego, in the best neighborhood in the country. don't choose largest dorm because almost always someone will close the window and little air will get in the room. That goes for any hostel. Especially with only one window. Also little air will flow in window due to building being a foot away. Dorm rooms are half size of normal hostel so not God for fat people or claustrophobic people.

          Good vibe at the back patio and everyone felt so relaxed there. Even though the hostel was very near to the Ocean Beach (3-5 mins by walking), there is no a sand on the floor! And there were lots of interesting activities everyday, if you want to have fun at San Diego, this is a good choice for you

          BEST HOSTEL IN THE US!”

          I have stayed at the hostel four times now and would not choose to stay at any other location. A lot of reviews for this hostel on this website are in comparison to hotels. Hostels provide low rents in return for bare minimum necessities. But this hostel always organizes daily (mostly free) activities that usually involve food and/or alcohol. The bottomless mimosa bar on christmas was free of cost and so was the extensive breakfast spread. They also put out ham for dinner that night. I spent new year's there too and the place was lively not just because of the staff (which do an absolutely fantastic job) but also because of the guests and the atmosphere they're in. The TV area is comfy and warm. The patio is massive and is usually a party spot by the end of the day (remember, this is ocean beach...parties are unavoidable in this area). They also offer free walking/cycling tours, beach yoga and sports and free beach towels and gear! For $30 a night, this is a phenomenal deal

          Loved it!”

          This was my first time staying in a hostel and it was amazing!! I was in a 4 person room and loved my roommates. The staff was great and activities (I did yoga and bonfire) were fun! There's a huge fridge for food and ample cooking space with pretty much anything you need. There was also a big fridge for drinks and a small freezer for ice. The deck out back was awesome for hanging out, eating, drinking and meeting new friends. The shaded lounge area was nice to escape the sun and watch Sunday football with fresh air. Plus, it's only 2 blocks from the beach!!!! On an amazing street with a grocery store across the street and plenty of restaurants and liquor/beer stores. I will 100% be back for sure 💚 close to so many things like sunset cliffs, the pier, and public transportation.

          Great community and cali vibes”

          A great hostel experience, as it has a patio where everyone can hang out and chill together. Good breakfast and nice volonteers (the latino guys were questionable though... only seemed talkative/touchy with girls), especially Anika was really cool and always made everyone feel welcome! Disgusting toilets, not nearly cleaned as often as it should. Was puke all over several mornings. Should learn how to keep it clean from the downtown hostel. Kitchen is great! Also, really nice that you can rent bikes, very good bikes. My 6-bed dorm was way too small, should have been a 4 actually. Ventilation was unfortunately not able to cope. Lota of nice, very nice and young people traveling through. I was lucky cause several people were all staying several nights.

          위치는 관광지랑 꽤 떨어져있어요 대신에 비치가 3분거리에 있는데 다른 비치가 더 이쁩니다 직원들은 대체적으로 친절하고 하우스 키핑을 매일해서 나름 깔끔해요
