I wanted to try this experience at the age of 58.
I think that it is not easy to propose yourself in a world mainly of young people but it is just a thought because during your stay you get very rich also living with young people.
The manager and the permanent staff of the hostel help a lot to make you feel good.
I think this is a wonderful experience where the context of the beautiful location has contributed further to make your stay enjoyable.

Staying at Surf City Hostel was a wonderful experience and I recommend it to anyone! The location is beautiful and everyone that volunteered there was dependable/kind/ and interesting. Angelica is a great manager and made my stay very comfortable. Thanks for everything Surf City!



Angelica is super nice and she is always helping you if you have a problem or need anything. The other volunteers are great as well. The location is super and directly at the beach. Some rooms even have an ocean view. The only drawback is that you have too few days off because sometimes you have to work for only 4 hours a day. But all in all, I had a great time at this hostel :)



I can say 100% that this was the best experience of my (short) life so far. I won't be able to thank everyone involved on that, but I can thank this place for the great memories and the friends I will carry for life! This place is a hop away from the beach, Hermosa is an incredibly beautiful beach, and pretty much everyone staying at this hostel is friendly!!! The work hours are great and, personally, I enjoyed a lot staying at the reception. Angelica is great and I will be forever grateful for her. Surf City Hostel was my home for a while and, ugh, what a great place to be able to call home!!



No fun. The worst experience in my life. The manager wants you have to be 24/7 ready for her to fix everything. Boring 24/7. No cool at all

Gianmarco was only here for a week, after being here for only 3 days took a 3 days off to go to go a party and we could not talk about the schedule. Never had this experience with any worldpacker. We were glad he found another place and worked out for him.


My experience at Surf City Hostel was amazing. Angelica, the manager, is a very sympathetic and flexible persone who runs the hostel in a very professional way. I would definitely come back to repeat the experience.



Lovely Hostel in front of the beach, I have to thanks Marcela for be the person who has made all of my days there much better!
Thanks Guys! ;)



I spent a total of 2 months in the hostel. The people working in the hostel were amazing and the manager, Angelica, is one of the sweetest people I've ever met! I do, however, recommend people to come here during the summer. As the hostel wasn't very busy when I was there. The job was not very difficult. There were 2 types of shifts: reception duty and cleaning duty. I worked max. 20 hours per week and sometimes less. If I ever worked more than 20 hours, I worked less the next week. I really enjoyed my time here. Big shout-out to Angelica and Chris. You guys are great! :-D



Such a fun experience here at Surf City Hostel!! The work was easy and the location was perfect. Angelica was a pleasure to work with along with the other volunteers who are now lifelong friends. I would definitely volunteer here again!!



I had the best time at Surf City Hostel! Angelika, the host, is really friendly and easy to talk to, as well as the other staff. The hostel itself is not very big but it's really well located and it feels like a second home. Overall I had and excellent experience, totally recomend it!
