    The Ocean Beach hostel was extremely clean and modern. Atmosphere was friendly and cool. Just like Ocean Beach. We stayed in a private room, rather than a dorm. It's pricy, but worth it if you are over 30. Very comfortable bed, towels, linens and bathroom....More

    Only downside was that I waited nearly 15 minutes to check-in with one person working behind the counter. Secondly there is no indoor-commons room. Commons room is only outside, and under a tent outside, however it can get chilly at night.

    Is it a great place for someone who is 19 years old (can't drink). In other words, is it a party hostel?
