Definitely a great hostel to stay at in SoCal. The staff were probably the best part, always helpful and friendly, and they have great tips of things to see/do, and if you need anything they are more than willing to help. There is a great patio for meeting others, and the free shuttle is great. I stayed in a female... More

I spent just one night in this hostel, so colorful and in a wonderful location. I appreciated a lot the staff kindness and the neatness of everything. The Ipad in the common area, connected to internet and avalaible to all guests, is a great idea.

Love the decor and location. Staff are friendly. They have a shuttle bus service too, which is very helpful. Complimentary breakfast was good. Events on every night to meet people. There are private bathrooms as well which is awesome. 100% recommend USA hostels over other hostelling companies.

I stayed here for one night when I was travelling by myself, and I was so sad to leave. I was just in San Diego for a day and a night but wish so much I had more time to spend here. I was a little intimidated walking into the hostel by myself, but this was all on me and... More

This was a very nice, exceedingly clean hostel, just minutes away from the Beach. The free breakfast was quite varied and included items such as yogurt. The staff was super friendly and helpful without being asked. However, this hostel needs an inside TV room for the "older guests" who may not be interested in "partying" on the outside deck.

I stayed for a week as part of some solo travel. It was my first time visiting San Diego and I was so impressed with the location of the hostel and how easy it was to get from the airport - there is a direct bus connection. OB is a beautiful little town and the staff in the hostel are... More

Newly renovated, amazingly clean, great staff, 10/10 would visit again. Hostel was right along the beach, parking was decent & free. Wifi was strong. Went from here to the Ritz Carlton in Palm Springs (Rancho Mirage), and in some ways this place was better!

I ended up staying at OB for my entire San Diego trip (10 days). Wasn't my plan, but sometimes trips don't go as planned. Great Hostel to stay at, two thumbs up. Every morning breakfast was sitting out ready for me, endless water (great for the hangovers), Great kitchen for your own cooking, Communal area to hang out, semi private... More
