The Experience

This role is reserved for people who love socialising, are outgoing and are looking to help create high quality vibes at the hostel. If you don’t enjoy putting yourself out there, having a drink and a laugh, this position is probably not best for you. Events range from group beach cleans to parties with live DJs, but also Beer Pong tournaments, mellow olympics, poker nights or just movie nights. But we are open for your ideas too :)

The beauty AND crew of this hostel is one in a million. The crew is usually always down to party and will take you to local party areas, or on tranquil days will stay and chill and watch a movie with everyone who wants to join.

The fact that the hostel is so new makes the stay super comfortable.

The place is great for unexpected bartenders who want to learn about guest services and preparing cocktails.

Overall my stay was a 10/10, would definitely recommend. Much love for the Mellow crew, Jonas, Felix and Elli.

My 4 weeks in Mellow Hostel were amazing! The staff was caring and funny, everyone was here to help you in the work or daily life. Eli and Felix, the owners, are really nice and will do anything to help you to feel like home. The place is a little paradise between the facilities, the food, the chill area, the pool, the luxurious garden, etc. you will never want to leave this place !
I was a bartender and if you're not afraid to work "long shift" (7H/day), it will be perfect for you! It's a lot of fun and easy to do.
There are 2 types of rooms, don't hesitate to ask what you prefer!

El Paredón es un lugar increíble. Y el Mellow ni se diga. La comida es riquísima, mi cuarto era privado y muy cómodo. Tuve la oportunidad de aprender a surfear, conectar con locales y viajeros de todo el mundo y aprendí a hacer muchas bebidas.

Por razones personales partí antes de tiempo y cuando lo hable con la persona encargada fue muy comprensiva, abierta y amigable. En general todos en Mellow lo fueron siempre.

Es el lugar perfecto si buscas surfear, ir de fiesta, conectar con todo tipo de personas y conocer Guatemala (no solo El Paredón) por los increíbles beneficios que ofrece.
