affordable place for young and independent travelers May 02, 2011
I arrived in Ocean Beach hostel in 2009, in June. I made my reservation but since my flight was delayed, I had to make another one for 3 days later then the original date.I was actually able to get a refund on those days I wasn't there which is great. I was amazed by the warm atmosphere inside the hostel, every night there is something organized, whether its a bonfire, a karaoke night, a barbecue or a trip to Mexico!! The hostel has a breakfast included in the price, there is a choice of scrambled eggs, waffles, pancakes, toast...and you can also cook your own food in the kitchen..twice a week there is a free barbecue in the back of the hostel where you can really relax, watch some TV, eat nice burgers, have a beer or two, play beer bong and meet other travelers.

The hostel also offers working three hours a day (help cleaning) for a night free stay, which was great for me cause I was really on a budget at the time...the people that usually stay there are young travelers, beach lovers, surfers, chill and laid back people that work in a hostel also contribute to the nice atmosphere. I loved my stay there, it was clean enough, since the cleaning team works everyday through rooms and bathrooms. there is computer access, there are many shops nearby, lots of bars and restaurants.

I would definitely go back there if I had a chance. I recommend it to everyone.

Cant beat the location May 18, 2011
If you are looking for a cheap place to stay with a great location, this is the spot. Just be sure to bring your passport or you wont get a room. the breakfast is good and you can work off your rent by helping out around the place. everyone is pretty friendly and the front porch is always exciting. And if you happen to be there for the Christmas parade, don't expect too much.

This place is fun, fun, fun! Jul 07, 2008
I met some really cool people at this hostel! Everyone staying here is up for having fun and drinking (sometimes it is a madhouse at night, but the common area closes at 11pm so you have to go out if you want to party on). The 6-bed dorms with ensuite are the best (room 15!) and there is free breakfast every morning, and free dinners twice a week. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hostel is only 2 minutes walk from Ocean Beach (O.B.) and there are cool shops and bars on the main road. Oh, and a funky street market once a week. When you leave O.B., you will feel a bit empty inside, but you will take away great memories. Enjoy :-)
Sunset at O.B. Don't miss it!

Ok, I haven't actually stayed here, but I've had a few requests to check it out for people visiting...

Ocean Beach International Hostel (The OBI) is right in the middle of the block on Newport Ave., the entertainment center of Ocean Beach, a couple blocks from the beach. It's surrounded by cafes, clubs, surf shops and surf/bike rental places. It's a little hard to get a spot in the summer because of the prime location, and because it's such a nice hostel. Check the website for info.

It has the usual porch out front with lots of backpack toting, guitar playing travelers, an indoor common area, dormitory style sleeping, and some private rooms. Breakfast is included and plenty of cheap food is available within a block, round the clock. You probably won't get a lot of sleep there, but it looks like a cool place- I'm jealous I can't stay there!
