San Diego is called ‘America’s Finest City’, and for many visitors, it’s easy to see why. Many will attribute this title to San Diego’s weather: warm, sunny and Southern Californian. And while this is true, the city itself lends itself further to this reputation. While the downtown core and Gaslamp districts provide many visitors with their first glimpses of San Diego, it’s the beaches and coastline that really draw folks in to what this city has to offer.

Ocean Beach is one of these such beaches, and our favourite neighborhood in the city. It’s easy to forget that you are in fact in one of California’s largest cities while you stroll along Newport Avenue, watching the locals at the plethora of cafes or breweries, strolling by with surfboards and yoga mats. There is still a laidback, hippy vibe to this community, and our colorful hostel is right in the heart of it all.

Our hostel makes a great base to exploring all that San Diego has to offer, in both Ocean Beach and beyond. We offer a wide range of dorms and private rooms, many of which have been recently renovated. We also have a guest kitchen and laundry, but what really makes this hostel is amazing is the large outdoor communal spaces. Ocean Beach retains a relaxed California attitude, and our hostel embraces this feeling.
