I felt at home at ITH, the vibe of the hostel are so nice, the staff and the other volunteers welcomed me very well and Nathan and Steve are so kindsss, the tasks are not complicated and they respect the schedules, the hostel is very central and has everything so you can enjoy San Diego to the maximum. If I come back I would definitely come back here❤️

My time in San Diego at ITH adventure was an amazing time , I met so many cool people who were always down for adventure , you are in a perfect location to walk or ride the bus/trolley anywhere you want to go , there's always something going on , the work shifts were easy to understand (sometimes you will get one day off a week and others you will get 3 it all depends what shifts they schedule you) Thank you for everything I already want to come back 🫣

My time at ITH has been amazing. Nathan and Taylor are great management. It's not super hard work if you follow the scoreboard you're given. I would definitely recommend this experience to others.
