The Experience

This position is for somebody to helps out on weekends. People in this position will be helping us clean rooms, make beds, fold sheets, receive keys from guests, give keys to guests, maybe even sell a room. Our hostel is very busy on weekends and very lonely on weekdays so that's why we need your help. Expect the experience to be hectic for only a few hours and only sometimes. In this position we'll give you what you need to make breakfast.

This was my first worldpackers experience and it was truly amazing! Armando (the host) was very relaxed and wasn’t demanding at all. The work hours were very flexible with a lot of free time to go explore. The hostel is very beautiful and the city is calm and quite. The only con was the refrigerator stopped working and we couldn’t use the washing machine. Other than that I highly recommend this.

Posada de Colores was my first WP experience and it was the perfect first experience. Armando is a great host—he communicates well, is very attentive and provides a flexible work schedule. The hostel is in a great location; right in town, across from a cute park, and very near mountains & water. Would absolutely recommend this experience.

This was my first Worldpackers experience and it was good. My tasks were simple. My Spanish is not very good but another volunteer helped me out with my Spanish. In return, I helped her with
her English. I communicated with Armando mainly through text. Just be aware of the month you choose to volunteer here. It was very cold at night and there was no heat.

It was great! I had a great first worldpackers experience; I spent the most time working directly with Mayra (manager) who is very kind and helpful; you will enjoy your time among this diligent and friendly staff. Mariana and Armando are great! Hope you get the chance to meet them during your stay.
If you get the chance take the opportunity to visit beautiful Santiago N.L. and to live a great experience in this great place (Posada de Colores). I would definitely go back.
