Known both as a beach destination and as the home of the United States Navy, San Diego is situated right on the Mexican border and has a population of over 1.3 million. San Diego is one of the wealthiest cities in the U.S, and has also been chosen as the fifth best place to live in the world (Money Magazine, 2006), but the San Diego hostels are still reasonably priced.

San Diego is divided into multiple districts. There are many interesting places to see Downtown, in Balboa Park, and in Old Town (as well as all the other districts of course). There is a selection of San Diego hostels with good quality and moderate prices.

Beaches are the one thing you probably won't want to miss in San Diego. There are miles and miles of beaches for swimming, surfing, sailing, boating, and more. San Diego also has one of the world's best zoos, situated in Balboa Park. The Sea World is also a well known destination.
