I stayed 3 months in hostel on 3rd as a staff, was a great time and I met a lot of people from around world. The building is a little old, but it is ok. The housekeeping job is heavy for just one person, but still good if you will stay just one month or few days. If you have a good English you can do the front desk and is much better than housekeeping. The staff is nice.. Chris is a great person and will help you with everything you need. Was a great time and one day I will come back! ;) thanks

all the staff left when I arrived and when I've been for two weeks there I understood the reason.

Amy and James were very nice and caring, but the place wasn't how I expected and there wasn't enough staff to take care of the tasks.

This was my first experience in a hostel... ever! And I can tell you that I grew up is so many ways! Hostel on 3rd staff is amazing! I got all the help I needed to learn how to work at the front desk and the other activities that keep the place working well. The hostel is located in the best quarter downtown, near grocery stores, mall, bus and trolley stations, nightlife, drugstores, The Convention Center, parking lots, and restaurants! Just one thing you should all know: the hostel is an old building, and some people may dislike this. But it is all functional and the owners keep improving it

One of the best experiences of my life! The hostel is very well located and the staff is really nice! The boss,James, always tried to help me giving local advices and making my schedule more flexible! I worked at front desk and as housekeeper. Working at front desk is more fun,because you can get in touch with guests and isn't so exhausting as housekeeping. Working doing housekeeping is a little busy,but still makes this experience worth it!
I really wanna come back to wonderful San Diego! The beaches are amazing,people are very receptive and I've never seen a sunset as beautiful as there❤️

Hostel really close to downtown area and all public transportation. The staff is very trorought with everything, this is good because they will make shore that you are doing everything right but sometimes they over react to somethings that is to small. The housekeeping it's a little heave, in the slow season it's okay to one person but in the summer it's to much work for one person. The owners are very nice and if you are not liking of something you can talk with then so you can make an agreement.

Eu amei minha experiência no Hostel On 3rd! Os staffs foram super receptivos, amigos e parceiros. O hostel para mim tinha cara de casa. Os guests também eram super legais! Aprendi muito sobre San Diego, sobre os americanos e sobre administrar um hostel e também me diverti muito, conheci pessoas e lugares incríveis. Em relação a horas & tarefas, no começo você faz housekeeping e o horário não é lá muito bom (das 12h às 16h), mas, se você tem um inglês bom, logo vc começa com front desk também e tem horários melhores. Ao longo deste um mês, eu trabalhei com quatro brasileiros.

Minha primeira experiência como worldpacker e não podia ter sido melhor. Me senti mto acolhida desde que cheguei, a Nancy e o Chris são mto queridos e sempre tentavam estar em contato conosco, ou trazendo algo para comer e deixando na Front Desk, ou nos levando a algum lugar, ou perguntando como foi o nosso dia e nos dando dicas d passeios e até mesmo sobre a cidade. James também é muito gente fina. Sobre as pessoas não posso falar nada de ruim, só tenho a agradecer. Entre o staff sempre se teve mto respeito e fiz amigos incríveis. O prédio é meio antigo, mas tudo bem arrumado e limpo. Indico!
