The best experience I\'ve had this year, the staff is incredible, you can feel at home and the work hours are enjoyed every day, you have contact with the guests all the time. You have the chance to explore and discover once of the most famous california places VENICE BEACH (surfers, skaters, and sexys Americans 😋). Then is easy to go to downtown Los Angeles and walk through Santa Monica and Marina del Rey. The sun smiles every day and you can see the beach from the window. Worldpacker I can tell you will never forget this experience.

One of the best experiences of my life. I really loved it.
The best place to make friends and improve the English language.
You can go to the beach, pubs, parties, everything is very close to the hostel.
Volunteer work is not difficult, you just have to organize yourself in relation to the schedules, the activities are distributed throughout the week, at different times.
I really recommend Samesun at Los Angeles to everyone. Thank you Samesun, Manager Mahdi and all staff.
