    I've been to 4 other American hostels. Most laid back by far. It's on beach center of pacific beach. Nice living room not full of staff observing you. Shower cramped. But people and beach setting make this a top hostel if your into the beach.

    Hi, We do offer a few parking spots which are paid for at reception. Otherwise, there are some free spots along the street and a nearby parking garage. Thanks!
