USA Hostels® OCEAN BEACH

We’re the newest member of the USA Hostels family….
But we’ve been a big part of Ocean Beach life for 20 years, formerly known as Ocean Beach International Hostel or OBI, for short. The spirit and fun, the crazy colorful paint job and the famous peace sign still remain, but the inside is shiny new, complete with USA Hostels‘ signature ‘privacy pods’, new mattresses and linens, secure, clean accommodations, and new patio chill out space.

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.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“Super interesting area, amazing hostel, met so many new people and did a lot of activities!”

Felicia - Germany - November 5th, 2017 - Booking.com

“Super fun trip in Ocean Beach! This hostel in Ocean Beach is by far one of my best hostel experiences. Clean and modern rooms and facilities. Friendly and helpful service. Transportation to nearby attractions. Breakfast is included, too. Would recommend if looking for an affordable stay outside of downtown San Diego, plus you are just a few blocks from the beach.”
