Working in the hostel was nice. The communication and organization needs a lot of improvement. For example the first day I wasn't welcomed by the owner when I arrived because "he forgot" or that I have to work at the reception even if i applied as a handyman. Sadly the owner don't really listen to you when you propose something. For the rest the hostel is really cozy and has a good atmosphere. Hours are respected but don't forget to ask your day off in advance because of the poor communication but Adrian is very flexible with days and hours. But in the end it was a good experienc

I spent a week in the hostel with a friend of mine and we helped the hostel with all the activities involved in maintaining the structure. Adrian and Eve are very flexible and helpful and during the week they also organized a dinner in which we had the possibility to get to know the other volunteers. There is a nice environment! The hostel is not in the center of town but taxi are very cheap or at any rate you can walk to the center in 20 minutes. I would recommend the hostel to other volunteers!

My experience in the hostel Charrùa was fantastic! I worked in the reception and the hostel was so well organized that it was not hard for me to do my tasks. The host is super flexible with timetables and you can switch your shift with other volunteers if you need a day free in particular! I really recommend this hostel!

This hostel is in the center of Merida and very near public transportation to go to beaches, ruins, cenotes, etc.The best part about volunteering here is the community. People hangout together and cook for each other often—it feels like a family.The working hours are reasonable and Adrian is open to flexible days and hours. The time of year you come will impact your trip, Merida can get so hot that it's difficult to go out and do anything. The good news is there's a pool if you want to spend the day in the hostel. My 3 weeks there were nice.
