I had a awesome time when i was in Mundo Joven, the tasks was the same as my last job so was super easy! People who work there are super cool and ready to help. The bad point was that i worked more than the deal to cover the vacations of another receptionist- 12 days, 8h without free day. I had a change of plans and just stayed 2 months. But I told them that i would like to leave 20 days before! I didn't see the bar open.. people said that the hostel was amazing and with good parties when was open.. I recommend the hostel and im sorry for change my mind about how long i was going to Stay.
It was such a wonderful opportunity working here. I met so many great people from all over the world. "Sra. Jose" always invited me for gordita style tortillas. I even learned how to make tortillas with authentic "Maseca" flour (which I brought home with me to make more lol). We all celebrated Mexican Independence day with piñata, tequila and everything. My assigned job was great too. I only had to work 3 hours a day! With plenty of free time to explore it was a memorable trip.
Estuve un mes en Mundo Joven Hostel Cancún. Tengo impresiones opuestas: las personas, compañerxs voluntarixs, en general quienes transitan por el hostal son sumamente agradables y el ambiente acogedor, siempre estamos solo de paso. El mar es hermoso, pero la ciudad es un caos, muy grande, muy cara, contaminada. Lo cierto, es que es un punto estratégico del que te puedes mover a muchas partes de la Riviera Maya con facilidad. Me encantó el hostel y su ambiente, la belleza natural del lugar, pero las formas de interacción humana en la ciudad no tanto. Aunque claro hay de todo.
