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. We are also very close to the airport.

We look forward to welcoming you at our second beachfront California hostel, and we hope to see you soon.

    Samesun is such a nice place to stay! The common areas, including a kitchen, a front and back patio, are so inviting and the perfect place to socialize or just chill whenever you feel like it. Additionally, there are plenty of sockets and comfy places where you can put up your laptop and work (if need be). I would definitely stay here again!

    The real highlights are the Staff and the Location. Staff bent over backwards to ensure the building and all areas were clean and to take care of every request, regardless of how Crazy. There is no better location as it is right in the middle of OB 2 blocks to the beach.

    I Loved everything everything here. I love that they have quiet hours because some Hostels are loud all Night and they are really strict, so people can sleep. However, I Wish quiet hours were a little later like 12-830. 11-7 seemed like a little early. Other than that, the stuff is very friendly and helpful, they have group activity. The vibe was really chill and I love the art and Layout. They have a lot of space for everyone to hangout. This is where you’re meant to be!

    This hostel is cool as f**k! One of my favorites in San Diego. Big open airy space, cool layout, funky colors, nice, fun staff. I will say this though. Get the 4 bed room. 6 is claustrophobic we were falling all over each other in there.

    Very cool chill spot. Felt very safe, and the place is kept spotless. I enjoyed the kitchen very much, it was ver roomy and had all I needed to prepare myself a meal. They had many fridges which was cool because there was enough room for everyone’s stuff. The farmers market right outside make it a dream and the beach 2 blocks away is awesome. I saw a couple sunsets there and had a bonfire with a few friends I meet there; great times. I also went to the Irieality reggaeshow at the holding company

    I absolutely loved my stay here. The staff was fantastic. Made a lot of nice new friends enjoyed my stay immensely. I highly recommend. Beware weekends are busy so where there is a lot of parking it can be hard to find a spot. Best thing to do is sit and wait follow people. Other than that I Had a fantastic time and would be more than happy to go back

    Great location along a busy strip that leads to the beach. (The rooms are not affected by the noise of passersby.) It is a comfortable environment for all types - conversational seating for socialites, lounge room with TV for those who want to chill, etc. There are plenty of single bathrooms with showers that provide safety and comfort for all users. Note: Taxes are not included. We stayed here to surf at Mission Beach - not recommended since the only convenient route is accesible by car.

    So conveniently located one block from Ocean beach and among restaurants, shops, and a grocery store (right across). Easy access to the airport, downtown and Mission beach by city bus.
