    Lonely Planet review

    Lots of charm and color at this convivial hostel in a former Victorian-era hotel. Look for cheerful rooms, a full kitchen, a communal lounge for chilling and in-house parties and beach barbecues. Rates include linens, lockers and pancakes for breakfast. And it's smack-dab in the middle of Gaslamp nightlife. No air-con.

    Our independent authors have visited USA Hostels San Diego and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in San Diego.

    Description provided by property

    Voted Best Hostel Chain Worldwide 2013 and 2014 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence recipient. Celebrating 20 years of offering guests a fun environment, exclusive ‘privacy pods’, a central Gaslamp location (entertainment district) that’s walking distance to most tourist attractions.

    USA Hostels San Diego offers value for your $$ with privacy pods that feature a reading light, shelf and outlet, and of course, some alone time; a filling breakfast; free wifi and heaps of other amenities. No other hostel can show you the city like us! Join us for Tuesday Taco nights with $2 tacos and margaritas, head out on the town Wednesday nights with our pub crawl, spend a day out partying in Mexico on our Saturday Tijuana tour or just hang at the hostel with other travelers swapping stories and chilling in our intimate lounge.
