Neighborhood

California Dreams Hostel is located on the beautiful California coast, in America’s finest city of San Diego, 1 minute walk from the beach, 2 minute walk from public transportation and supermarkets. We are positioned within a 20 minute drive from San Diego Airport, Downtown and the city's main attractions. You will be staying in the heart of the Pacific Beach, vibrant neighborhood surrounded by bars, restaurants and nightclubs. An ideal place for those who love the beach, outdoor & water activities, good food, and making new friends.
