Our locations are in the best neighborhoods of Los Angeles. We also host monthly get togethers in the yard. Our beds are custom built, with a communitarian floor plan for open-ness and transparency.
Our staff is like family. We really love it when everyone gets together. No matter what location you volunteer in, you are welcome to sleep and visit across the Podshare network as long as you are on the team!
Upscale homeless and ex convicts shelter. Stuff gets stolen (even PodShare's cash box) and you'll feel unsafe, Elvina accepts anyone who pays the night basically. On a positive side i could say it's really thoughtful to have a place like this BUT i wouldn't sell it also as a Worldpackers experience, this is not the experience you are looking for as an international traveler. I left this place for my own safety and got my self to a “don’t let her in list”, funny because Elvina accepts ex convicts but she doesn’t really care about hard working people. feel free to read comments on Google reviews

This is a great experience to get set up in LA and establish yourself and connections. The work is hard at times, and you need to learn to stand up for yourself when guests try to push you around. The other employees are great, but the guests will highly determine your overall experience. You need to be hardworking, good at communication, and confident in yourself and your work.

Esta foi minha primeira experiência como voluntário e não poderia ter sido melhor.
Diferente de um Hostel, os hospedes no Podshare são encorajados a ficar por um longo período, o que te permite fazer diversos amigos e viver experiências incríveis, além, claro, da convivência com todo o Staff onde todos são voluntários e estão na mesma vibe que você.
O mais legal é que eles têm diversas unidades, inclusive em São Francisco. Se você precisar, nos seus dias de folga, basta solicitar uma cama e viajar sem pagar acomodação :D
