Dorm beds in our hostel feature our exclusive ‘privacy pods’, with a shelf, reading light and power outlets along with screening from ambient noise, light and roommates. No other hostel in California (except our sister hostels) offer this additional bit of privacy.  And, with new central air conditioning in all rooms, a comfortable night’s sleep is just a reservation away!

Electronic entry to rooms and backpack-sized lockers in each dorm provide for a more secure environment. Lockers even have power points inside for secure charging of electronics. Guests just need to bring their own lock (or can buy one at reception).

Our hostel beds are real mattresses, some with pillow top; no cots or foam mattresses. Snugly duvets and fresh sheets are always guaranteed at check in.

Private rooms offer a little bit of luxury away from home. Unlike other hostels that only have a bed and four walls, all our privates have  free towels, mini-fridges and other amenities. See the information below for the full list of what is offered here and at our beach hostel at Ocean Beach just a few miles from downtown.

Room rates at USA Hostels San Diego include daily breakfast, linens, luggage lockers in each room, storage on the day of checkout, laundry soap and a range of activities and tours at each location.
