In my opinion is the best hostel I've ever been to. Clean, great service, many activities (f.ex. bonfire at the beach). You can rent body board, surf board there. Clean showers with nice cosmetics. We had wonderful stay there and we would love to come back again.

Stayed here for one week during July and had an amazing time! The outside of the hostel is very colourful and looked amazing! (You see alot of people walk past talking pictures). We were given a 6 bed dorm upstairs, although rooms are abit small, there is plenty of rooms as each persons suitcase/backpack can fit perfectly under the bed... More

A good 5 night stay at the OB was one of my favourite experiences in SD. The rooms were slightly crowded but for the absolutely brilliant price I couldn't have asked for a better place. The staff were extremely helpful, eager to make the stay and final day (with baggage storage and whatnot) very pleasant. The social activities available were... More

In a nice area, very close to the beach and shops. Staff are very friendly (given water and pretzels on arrival). If you get a receipt they will refund your travel costs getting to the hostel from the airport/bus station. Had curtains on the beds, good privacy! Washing machines are cheap, great outdoor area with TV. Wifi is not so... More

Brilliantly located hostel. Super friendly staff with frequent hostel events. Rooms were clean and spacious. Only problem I had were the lack of outlets.. But besides that everything was perfect. Had the best time of my two month west coast travel here. Would recommend to everyone.
