It's cozy and convenient, definitely a good place to stay in San Diego! They have discount for rent the surfing board and super close to the beach! A bit way to downtown, but if you love beach, this is where you should go.

I've stayed in many hostel's while traveling, and this one is definitely one of the best. Great people, clean bathrooms/showers, activities as a group, close to the beach and bars. If you're looking for a relatively cheap place to stay in Ocean Beach, look no further

Great staff and clean location. Very helpful and fun people! Not lockers for everyone in rooms but be sure to bring a lock if you plan to use one. Also very secure feeling. Wide range of activities available. If you don't plan to participate, don't plan to sleep too much

Me and three other people stayed here overnight on a Saturday. It was a lot of fun very clean welcoming and versatile spot. There was a big parade out in front of the building celebrating Christmas. It's just a short walk to the beach. And overall an amazing trip
