The Experience

We usually have two volunteers in the hostel and they split the chores. The cleaning usually takes about three hours or so, and then we just ask that you talk to the guests and help them if they have questions. There are also other little chores like cleaning the sheets, getting water, and the reception, but that doesn't usually take very much time. We offer a bed in a dorm, breakfast, drinking water, kitchen and free washer.

It was my first time in a hostel and I loved it, there's only cool people in there, great place to work, party and live in, I even asked for one extra month, if you are coming to Guadalajara, The Roof is the place you want to be. By the way I created the website www.theroof.mex.tl and the videos in there, so I hope it can be useful for all the backpackers in Jalisco.

Fue una experiencia muy divertida porque puedes conocer gente todos los días de diferentes partes del mundo, es un lugar excelente para practicar Inglés, puedes tener momentos muy divertidos con los huéspedes, los miembros del equipo suelen ser muy amables con el tiempo y es fácil adapartarse e integrarse a las actividades diarias ya que son muy básicas! El hostal está ubicado en un lugar excelente ya que muchos lugares turísticos quedan cerca o puedes usar cualquier medio transporte si deseas ir un poco más lejos! Definitivamente es una experiencia de la que puedes aprender mucho!
