Massiosare El Hostal

We're a low key hostel in the center of Mexico City (CDMX), and we've been doing this for about 10 years. Our volunteers are a really important part of the hostel, because of the skills you bring, and because you help set the tone for others as well - most of our volunteers are still in contact with us in some way or another and leave feeling like this is their 2nd home in Mexico. The hostel is on the 4th floor (no elevator though :( ) and we have beautiful spacious areas - the rooftop is usually the favorite spot to hang out (not a 360 view, but close to 280). Our staff is cool and most are from CDMX - which means they're really good at helping you figure out what to do + practice SP or ENG.

We try our best to make you feel like you're at home, but also give you independence to live your personal journey in CDMX. Mental health is super important to take care of and because we're such a small staff (~12), we support each other - if needed and comfortable for the person (not overbearing). Generally, we also focus on personal growth and try to work with everyone to at least help a bit in that journey. This also means that the volunteers who have the best experience are also those who are able to independant within the guidelines/plans we provide, and keep communication open. Respect is so important, and you can expect that we'll listen to you and support you in the ways we can, if you're not vibing with your volunteer experience :)

I absolutely loved my time at the Massiosare Hostel. The staff and volunteers were so friendly and lovely, and I felt welcomed and at home even as I was adjusting to my new surroundings. The hours of work were exactly as expected and I befriended so many young travelers staying at the hostel. Everyone was accommodating and inclusive and saying my goodbyes at the end was painful and sad. I highly recommend this experience to any person. ily and imy Fleur, Hamlet, Ashley, Oscar, Eduardo and Cass <33

This is a great hostel in a great location with a great group of staff and guests. I initially arranged a month here, but then extended it for another month.

The shifts are relaxed and in line with what's agreed with Esther on the initial call, and they are usually in the morning or evening so you have lots of time during the days to go out and do things. There's a sociable breakfast on the roof-top terrace for staff and guests where people often meet and make plans for the day, plus there are a few days each week with a small social event.

Absolutely have loved my time here at Massiosare. Cassandra, Lalo, and José all impacted me in such a beautiful way! I am so thankful to have made friends from around the world here. Esther is extremely accommodating in terms of arranging your schedule so that you’re able to explore on your days off! I would love to come back, and could not recommend this experience enough :)
