It's been one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I got to know not only a piece of California but also a lot of people from around the world that became
good friends.
ITH brings you the opportunity to immerse yourself in all the different vibes that they have in such a different locations (city, mountains, dessert, beach...) and you will always feel part of the family.
I've already recommended this experience to my friends and I can't be more happy to did it cause it encouraged me to keep traveling and pursuit my personal and professional goals.

Oh wow, how to describe this?
ITH experience was amazing!!!! This was not only my first volunteer experience at a hostel, but it was also my first experience staying in one. I was a little bit scared/nervous at first, I thought it was gonna be hard to meet people, the place, etc but the second day I realized there was nothing to be scared about.
Lots of people from all over the world (volunteers and guests) and they were all super friendly. There's always something going on, beach day, barbeque night, taco Tuesday. You are never alone or bored.
Just go for it!!!

This experience definitely exceeded my expectations. My host made me feel at home and walked me through my tasks very clearly. Beyond that, this experience allowed me to meet new people from all around the world, develop strong friendships, and grow my passion for travel.
I highly recommend for anyone considering embarking on a new and exciting journey.

I had an amazing time here. The hostel vibes made me feel like I wasn't home with family throughout the duration. I really admire and respect what Steve, Jimmy, and Bobby have built. I can easily see myself returning to this place sometime in the not too distant future. A+ 😊

The experience is totally worth it, I got to meet people from different countries, the location is perfect to explore the city and its surroundings, the staff members were very helpful and always had each other’s back, and you´ll make friendships that will last forever!
