Jose (owner of the hotel) is a receptive and good person. You’ll learn about local food, culture and develop your spanish. The food is good! Breakfast and lunch eat together with volunteers, like a family.

Don't feel guilty, for desire what was agreed. On Wolrdpackers is 32h & 1 day free (week), this will not happen in Residence Las Trojes. Probably you’ll get a call 1am (Jose) to receive guest… also will work 8:30am in breakfast. Scale of work don’t exist, volunteers work all day.

I had a great experience, the food is unique and the place is very clean and beautiful. Jose (the owner) is a special person, always with a great humor, kind and super friendly. I recommend everyone to stay at Residence Las Trojes.

Pros – clean environment, reasonable tasks, comfortable bed, and received three decent meals per day.

Cons – Jose L did not respect the agreed upon work hours or my day off. The agreement was 32 hours a week and 1 day off. I asked for a work schedule at the very beginning to avoid confusion. He would not set one. He had me work from 8am to between 2-330pm daily and took the position that I must be at the hotel in the evenings so that I could help guests. One day, he woke me up at 5:30 am to receive guests. He had me work on my day off at 10:30 pm. I worked 33 hours in only 5 days.

Mi experiencia como voluntario en la Residence de Las Trojes fue muy rica en cultura mexicana. José (Anfitrión) es una persona muy buena, que le gusta mucho hablar sobre la cultura de su país. Hablamos mucho sobre política y gastronomía, lo que fue muy bueno para desarrollar mi español. Nos sentimos como en casa. José le gusta mucho cocinar para nosotros. Nos sentamos todos a la mesa para comer y conversar. Una experiencia muy rica. Como voluntario, apoyamos a Óscar, que sabe todo sobre los procesos en la Residence. Es posible trabajar y conocer la CDMX, lo recomiendo.

Esta fue mi primera experiencia con WP y no podría haber sido mejor. José es un mexicano que ama el país y que nos transmite gran parte de su cultura. Cocina muy bien y siempre se preocupa por el bienestar de todos. El único pequeño inconveniente serían las horas de trabajo que no están muy claras. Pero él es mui comunicativo, flexible y abierto al diálogo en todo momento. Recomiendo esta vacante y me encantaría mucho volver algún día. ¿Quién sabe por las vacaciones de los muertos, eh? Gracias por todo José !!! Besitos y hasta luego!!!
