The hostel in hillcrest San Diego was my first experience in world packers and as a solo trip, being a woman it can be hard to find places where you'd feel safe, mostly going so far from home, but I can promise you won't regret coming here. Andy has created an amazing community, everyone here is super chill and welcoming. The work that you've got to do is super easy, and everybody helps. It might seem odd at first but trust the process, you'll want to stay longer

I had such a great time at the San Diego Hillcrest hostel. the hostel is a vibrant hub of international travelers. I've been warmly welcomed by Andy from the first day and the atmosphere was always friendly. The place itself was great and well equipped and the location perfect to go around the city.

I loved this hostel! I met people from all over the world and learned so much! Andy was always nice and easy to talk to. The Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego is great for travelers who want to party and have a good time but also want to stay in a chill spot. I would walk the area for hours! Theres so many nice bars, cafes, and restaurants close to the hostel and I've met some really cool locals. It's a great place:)

Very welcoming environment, not too spacious, but this, which initially I thought would be its weak point, instead turned out to be its strong point, because it made coexistence very intimate and created a sort of family bond between the guests in the hostel. Andy is very helpful and kind and the location of the hostel is excellent for reaching every point of San Diego, especially thanks to the many transport connections close to it. I hope to be able to return one day.

Very easy job! The host was very accommodating and everyone there was super friendly. Great place to stay if you don't want to do too much work while still having a place to sleep with a cool community.

My experience here was amazing! I was able to explore around San Diego all while doing my daily duties of cleaning the kitchen and whatever else was needed in the hostel. I met some lifelong friends while living here and we are still keeping in touch after I have left. Everyone was very sweet and if you ever need anything, you can ask Andy and he will help you out. Thank you so much for such a great experience and can't wait to come back(:

The hostel was a very nice experience. You are very close to all the other volunteers but also the other guests. In evening there is often a campfire or a little get together. Also your work is very relaxed. You're supposed to wash some dishes, keep everything today or help with laundry. Also since I was responsible for social media, I could some rule my own day, which was a great opportunity to get to know San Diego Very recommendable experience !
