Good and helpful staff! I was really enjoy the Kitchen help. Thank you.



We loved volunteering in Puerta Vieja. The whole staff was so welcoming and nice and we fastly became friends with the other volunteers, we spent a lot of our free time together and were so close for this short time. We worked at the reception and the bar and enjoyed our time there. San Cristóbal de las casas is an amazing city, it is totally worth it staying there for a few weeks! We are glad that we made this experience and would totally recommend it to everyone.



Hostel is full of energy everyday, staff is awesome, I left great friends there! Thanks for everything!!!!



In a nutshell, a very nice place to experience volunteering at its whole.
Puerta Vieja has it all, beautiful house with open spaces to share and enjoy, awesome people, delicious food, cute pets. They are strict in a sense, but if you are responsible you will handle well. It is a big hostal that receives up to 10 volunteers which will make easier to meet people along your trip and added to the enchanting of San Cristobal would make your experience a unique one.



I had an amazing experience in Puerta Vieja Hostel, it's one of the best hostel that I've seen! The atmosphere and the people are amazing. Daniel and all the staff are really good persons and looks like a family. There's a lot of activities and people from all over the world. It's a really good place to work and enjoy. I spent three unforgottable weeks there and I recommend for everyone!
