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!

Liked: The staff is super friendly. It is located in a very laid-back area. I love the relaxed atmosphere of the community of Ocean Beach. Also, the hostel is just 2 minutes away from the beach.

Disliked: The showers. The water was either too hot or too cold.
