Esther was incredibly kind and understanding! I hurt my foot during my stay and could barely walk and the team let me take the time to care for it (Btw the hostel is up 4 flights of stairs). I would recommend this hostel and I'd love to come again!

I can definitely recommend the hostel as a worldpackers experience! The volunteers and the staff that I got to know were great. Esther is flexible with scheduling, I had a few unexpected things come up and she was very supportive with those issues. Cassandra is also a very kind staff member who helped me go to the doctor with a Spanish-speaking volunteer when I got extremely sick. The work is fun and easy, and there are clear checklists to follow. My favorite thing about the hostel is that they are always trying to improve and they are open to feedback from guests. Miss them already! :)

The hostel was lovely! The people are so friendly and helpful, management is easily accessible if you need anything. The hostel itself is very clean and organized with plenty of spaces to hang out. I served the breakfast in the morning and loved being able to interact with the guests. There were 3 other volunteers and was a quieter environment. The work is very straightforward and the hours are exactly as agreed upon. Mexico City is huge but the hostel is in a great location to walk, Uber, or take public transportation to most places. I highly recommend this place to see the city!
