City Tour Guide

Local volunteers offer a unique insider’s perspective to our hostel guests. Tour guides will lead a tour in one part of Los Angeles on a pre-planned route (which you are welcomed to update) with historical, cultural, or fun information. We currently have tours in Downtown L.A., Venice Beach, and Malibu.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lead a group of hostellers on a local area walking tour.

  • Speak about specific points of interest.

  • Research and add to historical and culturally accurate script.

  • No experience necessary. We can train you to lead the tours and provide the route information and talking points!

Contact Naledi Makhene for more details: or (424) 309-1675, or visit
