The Experience

Nuestro hostal está cerca de Sierra Madre en México, con paisajes increíbles y cerca de la naturaleza. Básicamente buscamos a alguien que disfrute estar en paz en el hotel y que durante su periodo de trabajo nos ayude con detalles de pintura dentro y fuera de los cuartos. Es un trabajo de detalle pero a la vez terapeutico porque al finalizar puedes ver el avance.

The hostel colorés is a chill place to stay but maybe too chill and boring if you don't have a car or any other project on your own. The tasks are exactly like the description, which is really good. So I would recommend it if you are not alone, if you have a project to work on and/or if you have a car.

I stayed at the hostel for one month and I would definitely recommend volunteering here if you are in the area. The town itself is very pretty and it's a good place to connect with the locals and improve your Spanish. The work hours were more than fair and the tasks were not difficult. I had many days off which left me with plenty of time to explore the area. Muchas gracias Armando!

Perfect experience. The place is amazing and the people more. Armando, the owner was so kind and friendly with us.

The hostel was a great first time WP experience for me. It's in a great location, surrounded by nature. Santiago is such a charming city where you can really feel how the locals love their town. There were many festivals, parades and street music events happening just a short walk away. My tasks were what I agreed. I saw improvements to the kitchen and co-work space while there.

The location isn't too busy and during the weekdays it really slows down so it gives you the opportunity to explore around.
