Angel is the man. He is a very responsable and hard working person which i will recommend anytime to any host. Thx for everything Angel!



It was an amazing experience in every way. Carlos was very welcoming and a great host! I felt at home every day and I became friends with other volunteers and guests. The work that needs to be done is simple and it leaves you with enough time to discover the city and do other activities. I would totally recommend this experience to everybody who wants to visit Guadalajara and have a great time.

Hostal Americana tiene gran potencial para crecer, nuestra estadía fue buena, hay voluntarios de hace mucho tiempo, hay que saber acoplarse, en general respetuosos. Como sugerencia, falta más compromiso a la hora de realizar las actividades para poder entregar al siguiente turno, lo importante siempre será saber trabajar en equipo.

Tuvimos una gran despedida por parte de los huéspedes. Les deseamos mucho éxito.

Un voluntariado muy distinto a otros, pero, para conocer la ciudad, los tiempos y las actividades te lo permiten ampliamente.

Estar en Hostal Americana fue una experiencia increíble, conocí personas de muchas partes de México y del mundo, los huéspedes son muy amables, él equipo de trabajo es agradable, siempre hay algo nuevo que hacer por aquí, la hospitalidad fue muy buena, me sentí en casa desde el primer día que llegué, incluso alargué mi estancia en el hostal, sin duda lo recomiendo y volveré pronto. (:
