Volunteering in the ITH Zoo Hostel was one of the best decisions of my life!! It was my first time as a volunteer and it was awesome!! I stayed there for two months and I made amazing friends. The managers, Eric and Maryanne, are really nice, kind, welcoming, and they are always there when you need them. Everybody who have the opportunity to go to San Diego should stay with the ITH family, YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE. I will miss a lot everyone!! Thank you all SO MUCH, I will be back for sure :D

During my time at International Travelers House (ITH) I had the privilege of working at ITH beach bungalow, their newest acquired locations. During my time there I had so much fun and learned so much. Of all the hostels I've worked in this one was definitely in the top 2! Such a great location (right on the beach), extraordinary daily events (including bike trips, party buses and taco Tuesday), staff dinners and boat parties this hostel proved to be among the best in the world. Daily tasks are being done to improve the hostel since it was taken over from the previous owner. Awesome experience!
