My stay just was great because of the others volunteers and guest who I met at Mayan Monkey. The manager Alfredo is very rude! There are no bikes and no discounts! The room is good and clean.

It was a good time but for the lack of communication and feedbacks after two weeks they told me that I was no longer a volunteer and if I wanted to stay Id have to pay (they told me this at the night). I went to talk to the manager and he apologized about the lack of training and feedback, but after I was pretty exhausted already and decide to stay as a guest. Daniel and Charlos are very nice and kind. It was not a great experience but was not so bad, the hostel is a nice place full with nice people from all over the world.

I applied for Party promoter, they don’t know about what does it mean I guess, because I was working as a “Bar man assistant” so It wasn’t enough clear before to apply. Amazing and well located building, excellent facilities, nice staff but they could be more kind. Good party in there.

Hacer voluntariado en el Mayan fue increible. El personal responsable super lindo, tratan de hacerte sentir lo mas comoda y a gusto posible en el area de trabajo... Debo agradecer a Alfredo por brindarme la experiencia. Mi tarea fue ayudar en el area de desayuno, nada pesado la verdad, si no fuera por el calor que hay en tulum- estuvo bueno, me divertía igual con los otros voluntarios... Hice* buenos amigos... Y ni que decir del hostel... Un gran ambiente, donde tanbien conocí a muchos viajeros.. Disfrutaba el tiempo libre en la piscina y en las fiestas. Con: era casi imposible conseguir bike
