Even though there were some misunderstandings in the beginning and the way of communication can be improved by the management, it was a very good experience! the hostel is a really good located Hostel in the Hotel Zone of Cancun. You can meet a lot of interresting people and have a great time.

It was my first volunteer, chase it bc of all the good reviews, yes, the place is great, the staff is amazing, perfect location, you meet a lot of people, and get to create a beautiful friendship with the volunteers, however, I do think the new host needs to improve the commitment, be engaged, and KIND for a truly collaborative experience, improve the responsibility and communication as well. The tasks can be tough, mostly when there's not staff so you have to cover their work. Overall I leave this place thankful with Asael, Kitchen & bar staff and my volunteers friends.

The hostel is a great hostel in terms of the place itself, its facilities, and its location in the hotel zone in Cancún. You will meet a lot of interesting and fun people, you will get to spend and therefore really get to know the other volunteers you work with, however, the management needs improvement in regards to communication and engagement towards their employees. As for me, I was originally supposed to help out in the field of animation/carrying out the activities of the hostel but was then moved to the breakfast shift after a fourth of my stay, without any prior consultation
