This location is truly beautiful. In a great location for all the things you need, but also not in the hustle, loud and overly touristy parts of PV. Ines, Victor and the rest of the staff are all respectful and kind. When there were miscommunications on tasks, they were quickly resolved. My off time and the agreed hours to volunteer were respected, which made it easy for me to keep to my remote work hours and enjoy PV.

I very much enjoyed my time painting murals at the hostel! Ines was a great host and it was fun to meet other volunteers. Definitely recommend it if you are looking for a hostel experience!

I had a great time because of the other volunteers at the hostel but probably would've left earlier otherwise. Communication with Inés was a bit difficult. It was never made clear what our tasks were during our shifts and since there were 4 volunteers and almost no guests during the entire time I was there, there wasn't much to do after cleaning. I tried to do my work responsibky but it was difficult to please Inés. Some of the info on the platform was inaccurate/ misleading (no breakfast or any other meal provided, some of the photos were not from the hostel but other properties they own).

I thank for Nina´s time and I hope one day she might realize the opportunity of not waste time sleeping.
I did communicate my intention of letting all about the place clean because we where full on holidays.

It's a pity that she didn't take advantage of all the opportunity of not pay for a nice bed, treated as family with respect. The volunteers were unable to communicate with her nor worked as a team with her. The staff and volunteers expressed annoyance for her lack of respect for sharing spaces.
Nina doesn't know how to take a broom or squeeze a mop. Not wash properly a rag.
I was my first bad experience with a young lady.



It was a good experience, the atmosphere was very familiar🌼😊 my work during my stay was mainly cleaning but there are other and different jobs to be done to realise ines' dream: to make traveling in mexico possible for those who like to. around puerto vallarta are many beautiful places to discover and you can quickly get to beautiful beaches that are not overcrowded. despite the many large hotels, puerto vallarta also has something to offer for backpackers.
