All you need when you stay with us is a swimsuit and sunscreen – we loan free beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, mats, Frisbees and paddle ball sets. We even have coolers to keep those beach beverages icy cold. Wanna try out surfing? We have surfboards and body boards for a low rental cost.
Our FREE shuttle to the most popular San Diego tourist spots also helps make us the best hostel value. Running four days a week we drop off at SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo and our sister hostel in the heart of the Gaslamp District. We even do an airport drop off and twice a week hit La Jolla cove.
We not only fill your days with options, but you can also join us for our twice weekly beach bonfires with good ol’ American ‘smores’ and hotdogs.
And, if the cozy warmth of the fire gets you feeling musical, you can borrow one of our a guitars, tambourines or bongos and get to singin’ campfire songs. We also have beer pong tournaments and movie nights complete with popcorn. To see what’s happening in fun and unique Ocean Beach, scroll down the page to our “Special Events” section, the ‘Activities’ area or check out our blog or Facebook page.
“One of the best in the world for a reason! I stayed at USA Hostels San Diego for 8 nights, and it was a great experience the whole way through. Everyone is very friendly and the rooms are great. Location is spot on, and access to the other parts of San Diego is easy. The hostel also puts on activities for each day of the week if you fancy a trip to Mexico, beach volleyball, cycle tour, bonfire on the beach, bar crawl, or maybe even a movie night. It really is a hostel that anyone would feel very welcome at, no matter your age or where you're from. It's such a friendly spot and I'm sure I will visit again in the future.”
“Our stay couldn't have been better! Great facility, awesome and friendly and helpful staff, fun activities and great location. Can't really ask for much more :)”
