Thanks for choosing to stay with us at USA Hostels Ocean Beach, San Diego! There is parking all around the hostel but on our street most of it has a two-hour limit. If you go just a couple of blocks from the hostel to the north and south, there is non-metered, all day parking.
Please note there is no parking on Newport Avenue from 2:30pm-9pm on Wednesdays, due to the Farmer’s Market. All cars parked on Newport will be towed.
Please let me know if you have any more questions. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
