The Experience

Hi! Although some hostels in San Francisco are still closed, we are still open with the help of amazing volunteers! The hostel is a bit slower than usual so the vibe is quieter than it usually is. However, you'll still meet some adventurous travelers. We provide a bunk in a dorm room, free wifi, basic breakfast, basic dinner ingredients, and lots of fun in return for only 25 hours a week of help!

This has truly been one of the best experiences I have had volunteering. This volunteering has been better than I expected, I am very grateful to Steve for giving me the opportunity to be part of the hostel team and also to Asd and Nikole who have been incredible to me. Nikole, you are incredible, I really thank you for everything, I have no words to express how grateful I am for everything. The hostel has activities every night so you will never be bored and you will meet many people from all over the world, 100% recommended. Thank you Nikole & Asd, I will miss you!!

I loved my time at the hostel! Nikole and Asd made me feel right at home and were super welcoming the entire time; we've became great friends! They were very flexible with my online job, and always scheduled me accordingly allowing me to both work and volunteer. I can't recommend the hostel enough. See you guys somewhere soon :)

BEST TIMES! This was my first worldpackers experience and I loved it. Nichole and Asad were superb managers, always caring and looking out for guests and staff. I felt comfortable and welcomed at all times. I was lucky to meet so many different people from all over the world and make friends for life in the time I was there. The Hostel is in a perfect location to explore San Francisco and to fall in love with this amazing city. I can 100% recommend to stay at the hostel!

A hostel run by some of the most warm and caring individuals I've ever met. Seriously. Could not have been better, honestly, especially as this was my first time volunteering. I felt lucky to have lived and collaborated with my team and hope others will have the same experience I was able to.
