First started in January 1994 as the Grand Pacific Hostel in San Diego’s redeveloping Gaslamp Quarter, today we’re running outstanding hostels in San Diego, Hollywood and San Francisco.
USA Hostels is now in its 23rd year of operation and winner of many industry awards including top rankings by Hostelworld, Hostelbookers and Trip Advisor..
Even though we’ve grown a lot there are some things that haven’t changed at all since things started in San Diego. We all work here for the same reason: we love to travel. Since each hostel is run for travelers, by travelers, guests can expect to find the kind of excellent service that we know makes any trip easier and more enjoyable. We run some of the cleanest and most fun hostel facilities in the USA with loads of activities, tours and parties!
We hope you’ll come visit us during your travels. Don’t hesitate to contact any of the people listed below with any questions, comments or feedback.
