Right on Pacific Beach, the Bungalow has a top location, a beach-party atmosphere and is reasonably clean, but it’s lackluster, very basic and gets crowded. Shared rooms are mixed-gender. The communal patio fronts right on the boardwalk are a great place for people-watching and beer drinking. No air-conditioning. Breakfast is free and wi-fi is included, as are free body board rentals.

Look out for 20% off same-day arrivals.

Description via Hostelworld

The Beach Bungalow Hostel is the only hostel in San Diego directly on the beach in Pacific Beach. The Bungalow is perfectly situated for those looking to sample the fabled San Diego lifestyle. Take advantage of our swimming pool, the largest in the world, for snorkeling, scuba diving, and of course surfing. If staying in is more your style, you'll find plenty to do here. The Bungalow features a kitchen, pantry, common room with cable TV, movies, internet, and most famously, 'The Deck.' Best of all is the chance to meet students and travelers from all over the world while enjoying the lovely sunsets. We provide included breakfast every day and dinner twice a week as well as free Body Board rentals. Our main attraction is the deck over looking the beautiful beach. Our location is amazing, but travelers quickly realize that one of the best features is Beach Bungalow’s relaxed and festive attitude. It is a beach home and a place to meet new life-long friends.
