    Volunteers with us get a balance of running activities and tours, such as pub crawls, neighborhood hikes and our weekly BBQs, driving our van to the beach and some help tidying up and doing some laundry.

    Volunteers get to practice their English daily (assuming it's not their first language of course), and help keep our international fun vibe going. They serve as ambassadors for what we stand for, which is a fun, friendly, safe and clean environment for young international travellers, many of which are having their first hostel or US experience.

    In addition, they are a bridge to international understanding with our American guests, providing new perspectives and helping those guests expand their world view. Being a volunteer with us gives volunteers, staff and guests alike a chance to break down cultural barriers and stereotypes.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteers staying with us will be running a variety of activities and tours as well as introducing guests to the hostel so, if English isn't a first language, will get the opportunity to practice and improve English skills daily. We have a full complement of local staff, so volunteers will get to know 'real' locals (we're not all like TV!), find out about life in California and make life-long friends. And volunteering in our hostel, allows a great opportunity to meet like-minded travellers from all over the world.

    As we are in the heart of Hollywood, there are endless things to do and see. The hostel-run tours we do are a great introduction to the city and history of Hollywood. Volunteers will become intimately familiar with the area and feel like locals in no time, whether it is walking tours around LA and to the Hollywood sign, outings to the bohemian Venice Beach, or just doing American-style BBQs on our patio. There are tons of concerts, museums, and cultural experiences to check out right in the surrounding neighborhood.
