I've worked at lots of hostels around the world, but It was the best experience using Worldpackers. I recommend for everyone who wants to go to California! I've stayed for 3 months and I'm going back soon. The atmosphere is amazing, you feel like home and the people are so nice!

The hostel is afront of the beach and you have time to enjoy San Diego and its lifestyle. You can surf everyday and enjoy the activities.

Thank you for everything, guys! See you soon!
