    I want to say thank you to the outstanding volunteers at this wonderful hostel Eric/Luis - I cant say enough great things about these two spectacular guys. They showed me a great time from the moment I walked through the doors. Great adventures with amazing photos Jake/Alyssa - Truly amazing personalities. I felt truly welcomed when these two smiled at me at the front desk. Alyssa has the best way of informing us of Quiet Hours. The only downside is that I couldn’t stay longer Cheers! -Ray

    This is my favorite hostel yet! It's the cleanest, safest, and friendliest hostel we've experienced in the U.S. or Europe! The outdoor space is super chill and the daily activities make it so people can experience the local beauty for free. There are great pubs and restaurants right outside the door, and the beach is only 2 blocks away! We rode the bus from downtown San Diego to Ocean Beach. A car is not needed unless you're in a hurry.

    I had a blast staying in this hostel. Everything went great, from staff to the structure, the events held by the hostel and the guests. I made friends that I hope I can be in touch for the rest of my life. This hostel is the best I’ve ever been to and the vibe is amazing. Next time I come to SD I already know where to stat, and it will be in this hostel for sure!

    Such an awesome hostel experience! The hostel itself was clean and secure, and everyone there was so friendly. Someone was always up for hanging out or giving advice on what to do in San Diego. Downtown is an hour bus ride away but there is so much to do in Ocean Beach I didn't feel like I needed to leave. If you visit San Diego, definitely stay here!
