I found the hostel to be very clean, quiet and safe. The hostel is located on one of the main streets with plenty of bars and restaurants. I would've liked for there to be more daytime activities like walking tours or group tours to certain hotspots

2nd visit and still very user friendly. Great staff with lots of enthusiasm.Great location and lots of organised activities. Breakfast is plentiful and pretty good by hostel standards too. Only 2,slight faults - a bit pricey and the 6 bed dorms should only be 4 bed because the room is too small for 6.

Hostel Staff was very helpful. My room was clean and I had no issues with roommates. I enjoyed making my own breakfast in the morning. If I am ever in San Diego in the future, I will crash here again.

The location, services and people were nice! It's on the gaslamp street and my room was street side, so it was pretty noisy. And the hostel is not noticeable. You have to be careful not to pass it. However, other things were perfect!:)

The employees were super rude. The accommodation was ok Showers were a little dirty. Parking around the hostel was terrible. I didn't have a good experience so I'm in the next day we got a motel in La Jolia, it was the same price and much better.

I had a wonderful stay at the USA Hostels San Diego. Cannot ask for a better location if wanting to stay downtown in the Gaslamp district. I would definitely recommend this hostel to my friends, and would also go back anytime.

The hostel was very well situated in downtown San Diego, and it was walking distance to Petco Park and Balboa Park. It was very affordable and had a great free breakfast. The waterfront was nearby, as well.
