I don't know were to start, my experience was so amazing, i have make new friends, staffs and guests, meet new places, lived awesome experiences. I recommend stay as a volunteer in this Hostel. The people are amazing.



If your plan is to dig the city, make friends and become part of a team, then this is your place. The staff will welcome you and make you feel comfty right away.
As regards the tasks, just pay attention and do as indicated. They are simple tasks that get even easier as time passes by! Be patient and listen carefully.
Although the building is a bit old, it is well maintained, and it has all the basic things you will need.
The host, Nancy, tends to share food and fun events with the staff, which makes the experience more interesting and amiable. I absolutely recommend this place. :)



It was a very pleasant experience, the hosts of the hostel always very willing to help you, the location of the hostel great, the work schedules very convenient and a very familiar and comfortable atmosphere, I really recommend it, an experience that I will never forget



San Diego is a wonderful city and the hostel is well located, so it's very convenient...
The environment of the hostel is amazing and the people who I've met here are awesome...
Definitely, a very good experience to improve your language skills...
The shifts are flexible if you plan ahead of time...
And the work its fair!
I'm so grateful for having such an amazing experience at hostel on 3rd.



the hostess Nancy is a very good person, I was welcomed with open arms by the whole team, she took us to visit a famous museum in the city. the hostel is very good, cozy, the service is quiet, usually 4 hours a day, anyway, it is a fair exchange, and if you are thinking of coming here, come, you will not regret it!
