David Proulx

Director of Hostel Operations – USA Hostels, Inc.


On a cold and wintery New England night, Dave was found in a wicker basket on the steps of a hostel.  The staff needed a basket, so they took him in as well and forced him to do all of their chores until he was old enough to figure out how to pick his handcuffs.  He escaped to the woods where he lived happily for years until one day he was lured into USA Hostels San Diego by the irresistible smell of free pancakes.  All it took was him washing, drying and putting away his own dishes, and they knew they had a winner, so they hired him right then and there.
