The hostel is an awesome place! 👌 I felt very welcomed from the very beginning. I had an injury before starting the volunteering, and they made sure to take care of me, providing me a comfortable place to sleep while I was healing. I learned a lot about how to be a tourist guide, and the tasks are simple and funny. Thanks, the hostel, for making my stay memorable!!

Luis!! Apreciamos mucho el tiempo que estuviste en Casa Pepe. Fuiste una ayuda muy útil aquí en el hostal. Esperamos verte de nuevo !



The hostel was an amazing experience for me, I could learn a lot about the local culture. The activities you have to do are fun and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The schedule is always sent in advance so you can plan your week ahead. The only issue I had there was doing laundry . There's no laundry in the hostel so you have to do it by your own (which could be either pricy or far). Thanks the hostel, you made Mexico memorable 🖤🥂🇲🇽

Pros: I loved my time at the hostel, I got the chance to meet amazing people who maked me feel like home the coworkers are very kind friendly and servicial like: the tour guides ( Cesar and Frank), la cosmica crew ( Freddy, Adrian, Marcos,Julio and Diani) and the girls from the reception ( Ale, Vane,Nath), is a good place to meet people from all over the world and and make new friends, the activities where always fun. Cons: The volunteers room is just terrible in very bad shape the beds, ventilation, and the treatment was bad with lot of disorganisation, to the volunteers.
