Know you way around a hammer, paintbrush and plunger? Tired of the coooold winter? Spend it in San Diego at Gaslamp Hostel in the heart of downtown

If you've some maintenance experience, want to enjoy sunny, warm days and be with a fun, relaxed group of volunteers with little drama, then we're the place for you!

Despite the Covid shutdown, all outdoor activities are open in San Diego and we have the weather to make it possible to still enjoy day-to-day life.

We have a great team but need a few more energetic and outgoing travelers for maintenance, housekeeping and helping check in guests. The schedule rotates between day and early to evening shifts - you'll still have plenty of time to explore San Diego as it's only 25 hours per week.

We are looking for staff wanting to spend 3 weeks or more. If you also have artistic skills we can schedule some hours to help design artwork and those staying more than a month can also have the opportunity to work on reception.

Our work exchange is 25 hours per week for bed in staff dorm. We take Covid seriously, so no more than 3 volunteers per room. Breakfast everyday, team and guest meals on occasion.

You must be able to enter the USA on your own, we can't help with visas.
