ITH Balboa park is located in the Hillscrest neighborhood, it is very close to Balboa Park ,which is quite beautiful and large. In addition, I was there at Covid time, for this reason there were changes in the shifts and the system, the staff of that generation had various problems with the managers. However, you will be able to enjoy San Diego. Furthermore, the weather is good although it is not very hot.On the other hand, the social areas are great, there are a smoking room, instruments to play, and study room.

Had the best time! ITH family is the best. The hours were nice and schedule was very easy to follow, tasks were simple.

Wish I could've stayed longer, hopefully I'll come back at some point.

Really enjoyed being apart of this community. I made life long friends here at ITH balboa. Keeping the hostel clean and the guests happy was my primary roll here. My coworkers were always friendly and helpful.
