Our cozy, relaxing travel hostel is located in sunny Orange County, CA- there are beautiful beaches, delicious restaurants, and Disneyland nearby. We are 14 miles from the beach, 30 miles away from Los Angeles and 100 miles north of San Diego; it's easy to explore Southern California with a car. A bit more challenging by taking a train to LA or San Diego.
You should volunteer at bamboo house if you like the hostel experience but in a relaxed environment (we are quiet, not a party hostel!), if you want to learn about the hostel business (we're a start up) or gain experience, meet new people, explore SoCal, and stay in a low-key atmosphere with great weather all year around.
Staff consists of the managers and other volunteers. We're a women-owned business- we're down-to-earth, but we work hard at building our business every day to provide our guests and volunteers with a great experience. We expect you to also work hard, but also enjoy your time here just as much- we encourage you to explore Southern California (and with us when possible). We have staff meals once a week so that we can sit down and connect.
