The Experience

We are located right opposite the Coaster in Mission Beach and only one minute from the beach, the location can't be beat! We're looking for adventure and travel minded people to join our team and help us be ultimate hosts to our guests. Everyone starts on housekeeping and then depending on needs will be trained on reception. We ask for 25 hours a week but you get a comfy bed in a great location and get to be part of a great experience!

My experience was so good and happy! The hostel is near the beach and in a good local. Bruno, the manager, is a wanderfull person, so respectful and professional. Made my days more happy!

This was my first hostel experience and I'm very glad it was! As far as the work, a schedule was put out every week with the agreed upon hours. My room was comfortable and I had enough space for my things. The meals were great I always had enough. I arrived to this hostel a day after they had opened so of course they were still working out a few kinks as far as the events they were hosting and a few other things but I'm sure with more time up and running everything will run just as smoothly as the other the hostel. Great area lots to do Definitely recommend this place for SanDiego experience

Apply, apply, apply! I am so glad that I applied. Not only do you get to meet great people from all over the world but you get to be a part of a family that cares about the community they serve. They have a network of Hostels in California and one in Mexico. Next, the world! I see the vision. I am having a great time and yes, I am still here. Again, APPLY! 🎙😊
