Backpackers in the USA are discovering an innovative way to fuel their adventures through World Packers. This platform has revolutionized the travel experience by connecting budget-conscious explorers with hostels and other opportunities across the country. Instead of simply staying as guests, backpackers can become locals by taking on volunteer roles.


World Packers offers a wide range of opportunities, from front desk duties and event coordination to marketing and photography. In exchange for their time and skills, backpackers receive free accommodation and, in some cases, even meals. This not only significantly reduces their travel expenses but also provides a more enriching and experience.


I have spent the past the last 6 weeks working and writing for ITH Pacific Tradewinds hostels in San Francisco. While I dearly enjoyed my first experience in San Diego, I wanted to expand my stay in California while still volunteering and writing for ITH; so I cam here. The experience has been just as great as the last, and has brought in new opportunities, new friends, and saved me a lot of money on accommodation costs.
