My time at the Mayan Monkey was great. All of the people that work there make you feel very welcome and explain everything you need to know. Although take into consideration that this is a full on party hostel. Of course you do not have to participate in anything if you don’t want to but just be warned that it can and will get very loud and the people you are sharing a room with do not really care about being quiet. Of course you can be lucky, it really depends on the travelers :)

I would absolutely recommend volunteering at Mayan Monkey Cancun, it was such a great experience. The staff is friendly, the location couldn't be better, and it's a great place to learn things and meet people from all over the world. I volunteered by teaching the Yoga classes every morning and bartending at night, all of which I enjoyed a lot.
