The Experience

We are a new hostel and there are many things and knowledge that somebody with fresh experience can bring. This is until now 16 bed only but we open a new 6 bed area every 2 weeks and we are working in a roof top bar! This hostel will be so cool in the next few months. Help us to get better to reach the excellence and learn a lot, too! This is more or less the best area and less populated areas of Mexican Caribbean. :)

Fue mi primera experiencia y la pasé increíble :) . Rodrigo y Viviana son unos anfitriones muy amables y sociables, siempre atentos con los voluntarios. El horario es muy flexible y las labores a realizar son simples. Conocí lugares cercanos a esta bella ciudad me encantó. Sin duda una excelente estadía y muy recomendado. Tuve la oportunidad de practicar más el ingles y conocer a personas de diferentes países muy amables.

Me llevo gratas experiencias para no olvidar. Esta experiencia me motiva a continuar con esta aventura de seguir viajando.

El Downtown Hostel, fue una de los mejores lugares en los que he hecho voluntariado; las personas fueron muy lindas y la experiencia fue de lo mejor. Recomiendo ampliamente a cualquier persona que quiera participar y conocer tanto Chetumal, como los alrededores, que venga y lo experimente, además si eres una persona que le gusta contribuir con proyectos, Rodrigo siempre estará dispuesto a escucharte, orientarte y hacer que las cosas pasen. No tengo nada más que desearle suerte, y espero lo mejor para Downtown Hostel y los amigos que dejamos atrás.

Muchas gracias a Rodrigo por recibirnos en Downtown Hostel. Rodrigo es un host increíble que le gusta convivir con los voluntarios hace que la estancia sea muy cómoda es como estar en casa. El hostal es bonito y esta situado en el centro de Chetumal por lo que es muy sencillo llegar a cualquier lado. Jesús el chico de recepción es super amigable y tiene tips increíbles para viajar. Hicimos muy buenos amigos con todos y nos encantaría en un futuro poder regresar, nos falto mucho por recorrer. Las tareas son sencillas y las horas se pasan rápido. Gracias por el tiempo y por recibirnos.

Voluntariado en downtown Hostel es genial, las tareas son simples y rápidas (sobre todo si te gusta cocinar), el hostel es super bonito y limpio, Chetumal es muy tranquilo, probablemente demasiado, pero las cosas que hay alrededor son muy lindas como bacalar, xul ha y Mahahual, es super barato también.
Dani y Lore son geniales, me explicaron las tareas del Hostel muy bien y lo que hacen y tienen mucha pasión por su trabajo; Rodrigo, el dueño es super buena persona, te recibe muy bien y es paciente.
Lo recomiendo mucho si quieren estar relajados y comer comida rica.
Gracias chicos 💚💙
