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.

“Fantastic Stay! Stayed at USA Hostel OB for a few nights and have nothing but good things to say! The hostel was clean, staff (and other visitors!) were friendly and very helpful! The hostel is in a great location, there's lots to do in Ocean Beach and I always felt safe walking through the neighbourhood! Would definitely recommend and visit again!”
