Liked: Great atmosphere. Everyone gathers on the patio outside having drinks, chatting, getting to know each other. Fun activities, the pub crawl was awesome. Great location, close to the beach. Fun staff! Had a private ensuite which was a bit pricey but it was absolutely worth it! Best hostel I've been to. Super clean.

Disliked: Quite pricey but still worth it. Breakfast is not the best but ok.

Liked: It was a pleasure to stay at USA Hostel Ocean Beach. Everything was very clean and brand-new. I really liked the private bathrooms on the hallway. The atmosphere at the hostel was great - there is a nice and cosy outside common area and I have met there a lot of nice people from all over the world. I would stay there again and I highly recommend it!
