Words can not describe how amazing this place is. The hostel is kind of magic, right in front of the beach, with an huge deck always full of people to talk with! I felt at home since the very first day, we all voulunteers and managers were like a family. The work is easy and you’ll have 2 or 3 days off per week. You can use surfboards, wetsuites and bikes every time you want!
I loved the Beach Bungalow, and Pacific Beach is amazing!

My time at the bungalow was awesome. This was my first worldpackers experience and I was more than happy with the outcome. I started with an open mind and left with some new friends from across the glob, awesome memories and personal growth. Work and life balance was really good and breakfast and dinner really helps out the budget. I was a receptionist and sometimes had 4 days off. Which was awesome, there’s always something to do and someone to drink with if you want. People also respect space too if you just want to relax. Thank you beach bungalow and I’m sure I’ll be back sometime soon.
