The Exchange

Be in the heart of San Diego in the Gaslamp Quarter! We have a great team but need a few more energetic and outgoing travelers for housekeeping and helping check in guests. The schedule rotates between day and early to mid evening shifts - you'll still have plenty of time to explore San Diego. We take covid seriously, so no more than 3 volunteers per room. Breakfast everyday, team and guest meals on occasion. Very chill atmosphere.
