I was living in Mezcal and working for Nomads hostel as a part of animation team. The work is 6 hrs per day and I had 2 days off per week together. I was staying in a clean and comfortable guests room and got two meals per day. I had to communicate with guests, inform and gather them for activities, participate and help the animator to lead the activities inside the hostel, as well as help serving dinner. I enjoyed this work, it is easy, fun and it made me grow up as a personality. My coworkers became a family for me. It was a great experience, very recommended!

Mezcal was amazing! My job was so simple, just talking to people and making sure they were having a good time during their stay. My job was to promote parties and activities and most of the time people would come up to me and ask what there was to do anyways. Would definitely recommend and plan on visiting again soon!

This was my first time volunteering at a hostel and I am very glad I chose Mezcal. I had a great first time experience! Every single staff member was very friendly, we were all like a family. The tasks are very easy, you just need to be social and get everyone involved in the activities. If your good at your job you get to enjoy free activities with the hostel. The location is excellent, the bus stop is nearby and there are many restaurants within walking distance. I highly recommend Mezcal to anyone interested, and I would definitely go back.

Amazing experience!
I had a great time. I spent almost two months in there but i would definetly come back in the future. You have a lot of things to do and see around Cancun.
The hostel has the best location, everything is really close :)
You have activities during the day and night, you will feel at home.
My "job" was really simple: Taking people to the beach and organize activities in general.
Just go for it <3

Great hostel if you like partying, but not very safe. I got robbed in the volunteers rooms, you don't have lockers there.
In spite of that, before, I had a great time and met a lot of people from all over the world. The job is really easy and you can relax and chill with the guests.
