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!
Me and a friend stayed for 12 days. We worked as cleaning/housekeeping. Nancy, one of the owners, is really sweet. She gave us ride, took us to see Coronado and was really pleasant. The hostel is in a amazing location, really near the Gaslamp Square. About the work: just the schedule/time was a little hard, besides that it was nice. Since I was with a friend and we decide to help each other, we didn\'t have much free time during the day. We became friends with other volunteers and other guests.
This is a wonderful place! the hostel is right in the center, close to all the places that you can visit. The city is beautiful and you will be able to know many things. Nancy, Amy, James, and all the folks at the hostel are good people. And if you come you must to taste Nancy's brownies, they are the best in the world! The work in the hostel is not heavy, you can work and have fun after your work hours, they always comply with the agreed and if you have any problems you can talk directly with them. It was definitely the best experience I've had and I hope to one day be able to return.
Because we have a family and relaxed atmosphere, and folks get along well with each other. We have a convenient location, public transportation is efficient, one can walk around town easily and take public transportation system efficiently, etc.About the host
