I felt very comfortable and both the host and the hostel staff were very nice. I had planned to stay 4 weeks, but I left the hostel after 2 weeks because I had other tasks than agreed. In the beginning I was allowed to choose between a bar and a craftsman. Then I had to clean up. I didn't want to complain and did it, but after 1 week I realized that it wasn't for me. So I asked if I could go earlier and was asked if I could finish the 2nd week. We found a compromise together. I really like all the people from Venado Hostel and wish them all the best❤️🙏🏽

I stopped my volunteering sooner because I wanted to see more of Mexico and not only the Yucatan. But it was an amazing experience, I met extraordinary people ! I was feeling good in the hostel for a first volunteering experience.

My experiences in Venado were amazing. The people were great. The locals and travelers and volunteers gathered there. Venado’s strong point was the cozy atmosphere which helps them connect with each other. The facilities like showers and toilets were better than I had expected. And then, the location is awesome. There are restaurants, supermarkets, and nightspots within walking distance most of which are cheaper than those of Hotel Zone. Going to beaches involved taking a bus at a bus stop a few minutes' walk away, which was easy. It was the right place to do many fun things at a lower price.

For me the experience was great it was my first volunteer project and I love it a meet great people I learned about new cultures, the only thing was the problem about the food with the restaurant they didn't respect the time, aside for that everything was really great 🥰
