Had the best time! ITH family is the best. The hours were nice and schedule was very easy to follow, tasks were simple.

Wish I could've stayed longer, hopefully I'll come back at some point.

Really enjoyed being apart of this community. I made life long friends here at ITH balboa. Keeping the hostel clean and the guests happy was my primary roll here. My coworkers were always friendly and helpful.

Hi Noelle, It was awesome to have you and the art you added on the walls will always makes us remember of you. Come back soon!

One of the Best Hostel I travel to, located 5min away from the Balboa Park in Hillcrest which is definitely one of the nicest Neighborhood. You have plenty of bars, restaurants, clubs all around if you need to quench your party animal soul within you. You will be able to go on many adventures, there is always something to do somewhere, go surfing at OB, go snowboarding in Big Bear, go eat Tacos in Tijuana and so on..
They often organize events that bring everyone together and allow you to do more than you will ever expect. Ith Team are always there for one another. Strongly recommend !
