Hostelworld says

USA Hostels San Diego is a colourful and funky hostel location in the central Gaslamp District of the city. This hostel features all-you-can-eat pancake breakfasts, power sockets in their large lockers, pub crawls and budget-friendly dinners. Each bed has a privacy divider, a personal light, a shelf and a power socket. Hostelworld guests say the 'great fun and very approachable' staff 'know what they're talking about' when it comes to local sights and have highly recommended this hostel 'if you're looking for an inexpensive place to crash and meet interesting people'. We like their day trips to Tijuana.

USA Hostels San Diego says

I think that what makes us truly unique is that we're set in a historic 1880s building in the heart of the Gaslamp entertainment district in downtown San Diego. Having been both a brothel and a children's home and purported to be haunted, the hostel's colourful combination of eclectic artwork and Victorian architecture mixed with Mexican elements makes it unlike any other hostel in the city.
The location of the hostel can't be beat; all the entertainment is right outside the door. Also convenient and appreciated is that many other tourist attractions are walking distance from the hostel, including the Midway Museum, Seaport Village, Balboa Park and the world-famous San Diego Zoo. Personally, I'd say the zoo is the place not to be missed, as it's unlike most of the zoos in the world. In addition to its size, animals are housed in natural settings. Zoo admission helps this non-profit's efforts to save and repopulate endangered species.
We're ideally suited for those aged 21+, small groups, weekend getaways, stopovers to/from Mexico and those just looking for sunshine and good weather all year 'round.
