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.



La experiencia en el hostel fue hermosa. Mi primer voluntariado y me voy muy contenta con la atención, el trato y sobre todo el aprendizaje. Super recomendado para todos aquellos que deseen conocer Cancún!



Una experiencia increíble! Las instalaciones realmente son muy cómodas y lo mejor fue la gente que trabaja en el hostel !! siempre m hicieron sentir en casa!!



El Mayan Monkey de Cancún es un hostel hermoso, donde trabajan personas excelentes y el trabajo es liviano y cómodo, con grandes compañeros. La coordinadora del lugar, Jéssica, está adaptandose a su posición y quizás sus tareas la superan, pero es una persona abierta al diálogo y de gran corazón. No duden en apoyarse en ella para lo que necesiten o para despejar cualquier duda. Estoy agradecido de haber sido parte de este lugar. Volvería mil veces!
