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

Great experience! I already miss the good vibes of the hostel. I would totally recommend this cultural exchange. Friendly managers and staff. You make friends from all around the world and all want to keep travelling. I did housekeeping, you only have to do your 4 hours job per day and be friendly with guests. You will feel part of it since the beginning. Gonna miss you all!
