Property Description

Welcome to the newest addition to the Samesun family! Formerly USA Hostels Ocean Beach, we are proud to take over this award-winning hostel.

Located right in the heart of the idyllic Ocean Beach community, you'll love our large common spaces, open-air concept and range of private and dorm rooms. Our local staff know the area inside out, and can arrange bike and boards to help you explore the area further.

Ocean Beach is California life at it's best. The beach is here. The sun is here. There are a ton of great restaurants and breweries in the area. You can surf, skate, walk, run, bike, be a yogi, or just chill out. And with easy transport to other neighbourhoods in San Diego, it's easy to use Ocean Beach as a base for exploring further.

    Great hostel! I really enjoyed my stay here. The location is perfect and is within walking distance from the beach. They rent surfboards for a good deal. Close to plenty of bars and restaurants.

    Super friendly place! Great location and very secure. Couldn’t fault this place if I tried. Great option for a generally more laid back San Diego vibe, but you’ll absolutely find people to go out with you if that’s what you’re feeling too.

    A very nice hostel, great location a block from the beach! A busy street, no parking but I found a spot a few blocks away. Kitchen and common facilities are very nice and well organized. Lots of guests and busy, vibrant atmosphere. Staff were friendly, helpful , professional. Downside: i wasn't very comfortable in my bunk room - small room, cramped w bunks, stuffy -poorly ventilated, I am fully vaccinated, but given the current news on delta I felt uncomfortable in that sleeping space.
