The Experience

The first hostel in Mexico City, it is located in a small old house in a great street. It is not a party hostel but rather hosts serious backpackers with usually amazing traveling plans. We are looking for responsible travelers with an open mind, a work ethic and that can work as part of a team. Its important to have a confident level of English, and great if you know some spanish too. Work includes reception and some basic cleaning.

Learning & Fun




It was my first volunteering experience through Worldpackers & Mexico City was the first destination of my travels.
The hostel itself is very nice and neat, people staying there were lovely and chill, and I met many interesting backpackers that I'm staying in touch with until now! The area where it's located - La Roma, is safe and quiet with many parks around. There're 4 shifts a week that one is required to work (extra shifts are paid, which was very helpful) and they are pretty manageable.
Thanks again to Gris and the team for letting me be part of the family, hope we meet again!




Hostel Home was for me a great experience as volunteer. I was looking to get out of my comfort zone and I definitely did it. The other volunteers are just amazing people, now we are a kind of a family. The tasks are not so complicated and as volunteers we used to help each other.

The hostel has too much potential , they just need to put a little more attention to details. Guests that come to Hostel Home are one of a kind, really nice and lovely people.

Hope to have the chance to see you in a future, thanks for everything, I learned a lot, I grew as person and I made the best friends ever




As my first experience as a volunteer, I really enjoyed it here. It's a small hostel which makes it a very nice stay and easy to meet new people. I very appreciate the time I spend here and I definitely learned a lot in this few weeks. Also it was always nice to hear the feedback of the people staying there ! thanks for the awesome time

Really nice hostel with a great atmosphere. The staff and other volunteers were all awesome people. The neighborhood the hostel is in is a very cool place. The job is easy enough with a few cleaning tasks. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. Thanks for having me Hostel Home. 😁




My experience at Hostel Home was amazing! The tasks and shifts are very clear and organized, also the structure is very good. Besides, the hostel has a friendly atmosphere. So, you can get to know a lot of cool people and enjoy the several activities that the hostel offers!
Furthermore, the location is excellent to explore Mexico City and Raukura is aways available to assist the volunteers related to the work questions or tips on what to do! It’s a family! Sz
