The best possible place you can volunteer at in San Diego! The other volunteers felt like family and the location is perfect. If you're hesitant about volunteering here, don't think twice just do it :D

10/10 recommend! In a great location right on the beach and has so much around like restaurants, bars, cool hiking places, etc. I learned to surf while there which was pretty cool also. Work is as described and not too hard. The staff were all amazing & made it so hard to leave. It felt like one big family & I definitely want to come back in the future!

I had the greatest time at the hostel! The staff and volunteers were so kind and made me feel at home from the moment I got there, and I got to meet so many great people in the little time I spent there. We had plenty of fun activities every week and there was never a dull moment at the hostel, so time really flew by. I'm so happy and extremely grateful I picked them for my time in San Diego and can't wait to go back!

One of the best experiences of my life so far, the location is great, if you guys like to surf that's the place to be. I met a lot of good people in this hostel and get in touch with many locals due to the location. You'll find everything you need on a walking distance. I've loved Pacific Beach and the vibe in the hostel was just amazing, I'll definitely come back.
