Social, fun and great value

San Diego's original backpacker hostel has been offering guests a relaxing yet fun environment for 17 years! Ideally located in the Gaslamp (the entertainment district), while also being minutes from most tourist attractions. And our new privacy pods will make your stay even more relaxing.

USA Hostels San Diego is social, fun and great value as our prices include taxes and we offer many freebies (listed below). Our exclusively-designed privacy pods feature a reading light, shelf and outlet and provide privacy from roommates along with a reduction in noise and light. Especially great for those times when someone flips on the light late at night!

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.

Voted the #1 hostel chain in the USA for 2010 and the #1 hostel in the USA for 2009!
