At Panda hostel we pride ourselves on the relaxed atmosphere and family feel. There is a big garden with lawn to relax during the day and a fire every night to keep warm and socialize.. Panda is centrally located in San Cristóbal being only 3.5 blocks to the Plaza and only half a block from the start of the main pedestrian street. Volunteers have a separate dorm next to the garden. We speak both Spanish and English and the manager is a Spanish and English teacher, so its a great opportunity for volunteers to learn/practice either of those languages.
We are 4 permanent staff from Mexico, India and Australia and we have at one time 4 volunteers from around the world. We have all done the different activities in the hostel from the breakfast to cleaning to the bar and have organized them in a way that is easiest and most efficient so there is a constant relaxed atmosphere.
