Sara deposita una gran confianza en ti, flexibilidad y libertad para realizar las tareas acordadas, le interesa que te involucres en que el hostal se mantenga funcionando bien pero de igual forma que salgas a conocer la ciudad y alrededores. Para ella es muy importante interactuar con los huéspedes y entendí que no es meramente por buena imagen, en verdad genera un ambiente agradable para quienes nos encontramos ahi, sea como staff o visitantes todos compartimos la casa y nos gusta saber que así como buscamos descanso y privacidad también nos cae muy bien contar, escuchar y planear aventuras

Te extrañamos!!!! Increíble haberte tenido como parte del staff!!! Esperamos nos visites pronto! Sabes q en merida siempre tendrás un lugar donde llegar! Gracias x todo


I really enjoy my first worldpackers experience.

Sara is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! She gives freedom for you complete your tasks. The principal tasks are simple and if you want is possible give suggestions and make differents things!!!

The hostel is in a great location!!! Mérida is in great place with so many things to do. It's very cultural! In the city there are many programs, like a salsa classes, Yucatecan serenate, organic chocolate tasting and several museums.

Near of Mérida you can find cenotes, mayan ruins and beaches!!!

It was my first time as a worldpacker and I don't regret anything! Sara and Paco (and their loving dog, Rocco) are truly nice people, I learned so much from them and from the whole experience. You will be asked to receive guests, clean, paint walls, sweep, keep the place nice and leave your mark- I got to paint some palms and trees in a room :) Mérida is a beautiful, historial place and the hostel is really near downtown, so you get to walk around the city a lot. Also, when not working, Sara wants you to get to know as much as possible and give you the best advice.
Muchas gracias por todo!!

tnks for eveything!!! it was great to work with you, and love the painting you made for us!!! i hope you enjoy Merida and the last part of your trip!!!


Mas que agradecidos con Sara y Paco por permitirnos a mi novia y a mi hacer el voluntariado con ellos!!! La experiencia fue muy gratificante. El hostel está ubicado en una zona hostorica y tranquila de Merida donde se respira seguridad a cualquier hora. Todos los dias hay actividades culturales cerca del hostel, tambien hay un gimnasio publico completisimo abierto casi las 24hs, Iglesias antiguas y bares para que pruebes comidas tipicas y bailes salsa (La Mezcaleria es genial). A 40min del hostel podras ir a refrescarte y disfrutar de los cenotes. Las playas lindas estan a 2hs en colectivo.
