Not only do you get to live in the center of the Gaslamp Quarter which is the heart of the restaurant, shopping and nightlife district, but you get to stay in a cozy and historical location that celebrates the best of San Diego. Our volunteers get to help shape the vibe and atmosphere and learn what it's like to run a hostel . Please note, we have a 'canine ambassador' - an 11lb pup who loves people and giving kisses so if you miss your buddy, you can get some love here.
The hostel partners are long time friends and co-workers with over 20 years of hostel management experience working for independent hostel chains who've decided to strike out on their own. We like to laugh, be relaxed and make sure our guests have a great time and our team feel respected, appreciated and heard. We love new ideas and meeting people from around the world.

This was my first volunteering experience and 10/10 I recommend. The hostel is really clean and comfortable Maria and Erin (and John) are great hosts. If you have any special skill let them know and u can put it to use. Great place and great people ❤️

Thank you Delfi! We are so happy you have been a part of this team. Unfortunately for some reason this program has not allowed me to write a review of you...so i'll put it here. You've been friendly, committed, taken initiative and creative! Your artwork will be a way for us to remember you always.
This is a great place to live, work and have a good time! Maria is really nice and will help you out with everything you know to know about the Hostel. I had a lot of fun with the other volunteers/roommates and with the guests. Everything here works, and I am so glad I got to stay longer than I expected.
