I applied it for a bartender, but the position I stayed was good too.
The hostel vibe is a lot of party, drinks, music, I had a lot of fun and I highly recommend it to those looking for this kind of fun!
The location is great, close to the beach, and the nightclubs and restaurants.
The schedule was respected and organized, which made it easier to enjoy of the dayoff.
Thanks Mayan Monkey 🐒❤️

Being at Mayan Monkey was surely a positive experience regardless of the misleading situations that came up.
Apply only if you're into party vibe, music and drinks. The hostel is known due to its vib. Cancun is a desired location and Mayan Monkey is just a few meters away from the blue Caribbean ocean.
The work isn't difficult, the most important is to get everything sorted out before starting. Get as much info as possible beforehand, make sure to get your tasks and supplies informed prior starting your activities, because for some of them creativity is required.

Definitely one of the best experiences of my life, I really enjoyed my time at Mayan Monkey, I met people from all over the world, I had fun, I practiced and improved my English. The tasks are simple and they leave you part of the day off so that you can enjoy yourself, the food is very good and the rooms are clean. The team makes you feel great and you can create long-lasting friendships with the people you meet! Amazing Experience

I had the best time ever at Mayan Monkey Cancun. I felt home there.
The hostel is located at the best place of Cancun, Zone hotel is where everything around happens.
The hostel has an access to the beach just across the street. The best beach for me was the Playa Caracol next to the Lighthouse at Ziva hotel. I enjoyed the free bikes to cycle to Playa Delfines.
All the volunteers have 3 possible sifts: (reception, breakfast or entertainment). I worked all the 3 weeks minimum experience serving breakfast. The chef make all the stuff and we just serve at the bar.
Any question @honoratoyago
