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!

This volunteer is definitely the definition of home! You feel like in a family; the hostel is very clean, people are amazing, the managers do everything to make you feel welcome, the meals are great! Perfect location, and you get the chance to meet travelers from all around the world! Besides all, San Diego is perfect. Great place for digital nomads!

If you're on the fence…. DO IT! Incredibly welcoming, warm family oriented environment where I truly felt as though i was coming home at the end of every night out. If you're looking for a little bit of love and family feel as opposed to consistent party, this hostel is a good choice. Simple & rewarding work, clear communication. Location is safe, 30 seconds from the ocean, and public transportation is very easy to maneuver in this part of San Diego. I've made memories here that I will remember for a very long time. GM Bruno is the type of person I think everyone needs in their lives 🤙🏼🤍

My experience in the hostel has been really incredible! This was my first experience volunteering in a hostel and it has been better than what I thought. Bruno is an incredible person and manager and everyone here becomes more than friends, a family that shares experiences and dinners together. This places feels like home(:
