ITH is a nice place for staying a short time like one month or less. If you want to travel a lot or study probably you will not have a time for this because you will work six hours per day , four days per week like a real employee. All the staff is volunteer too, just the managers and more one or two more real employees. Also, when you arrive you will know about more things for to do like a long metting at monday, extra active with the guests and the volunteer need to do a especial project per week. It's a nice place, but you need to know before, you will work a lot.

My experience there was awesome. Maryanne is a great manger and make everything to give people a good experience. Hands up for the volunteers team =)

I was doing reception mostly, working 3 day a week.
On Saturday I could run the Tijuana Tour and make some extra money.

Summer season can be busy, but no worries.

If you like party, welcome to right place.
Thanks ITH!

This was my first time in a hostel and also the first one with worldpackers and i think it was the best ever in my life! I improved my english, met a lot of people from all over the world and also with the volunteers we made the best team ever. Work sometimes could be tough but for the experiencie i think is totally worth it!! There's a lot of things to do in San Diego. I really reccomend this place to volunteer just have to keep in mind that plus the activities and the other tasks in total is more than 24 hours per week though It was the best summer of my life. Thanks ITH Family <3

Working in the ITH hostel San Diego was a rich, amazing and very interesting experience. As a first experience I think could not hope better. The staff was very friendly and welcoming , the managers too. the place is charming and the work not really difficult . I've enjoyed my stay , well .. I am enjoying my stay for the last weeks I'll spend in Southern California cause I'm still in the hostel at the time I'm writing this review. Thanks for everything ! Kiss
