This place is in a great location for downtown SD. Management was nice and very accommodating. I met so many good people. Parking is a bit hard but other than that a great place to be.

I had a great experience working at Hostel on 3rd. The duties are easy and the supervisors help you out all the time. They make you feel at home and help you to get the hang of things from they one. The volunteers there are also a great. People in hostels come and go naturally, so it is important to connect with the volunteers to have work and, of course, have a good time; I had all of that since the beginning , it was great.

Nancy and the rest of the team at Hostel on 3rd are really hearty and friendly. Always smiling, your stay is surrounded by positive people. You get a really good training for the work you have to do there and you even take pleasure at doing it. San Diego is also an amazing city. Definitely recommend!!
