I had a great time in hostel the hostel. The job itself is quite easy (but u gotta know Spanish). The best part about my stay was hanging out with other volunteers, they were amazing!! Recommend this experience to everyone who wants to explore Bacalar (which is a very beautiful the hostel! Thank you Christian:)

It was just an amazing time at the hostel! Chris and Sil, the managers, are fantastic people, always looking after you and helping to make you live your best time. The work is super fair and the shift at reception is never too hard. You can have a lot of free time to enjoy Bacalar, a magic place with artistic and chilling vibes, and you'll have the chance to connect with the other volunteers creating a family abroad! I can just completely recomend this place! A big hug guys, wish you the best and see you next time!

I recommend this experience to every solo traveler. Staying at the hostel and working at the hostel was an amazing experience! Special thanks to Silvana and Cristian for hosting and arranging everything. We agreed on working 3 days of 8 hours shifts. This means I had 4 days to relax and enjoy Bacalar! I had the opportunity to practice my Spanish which I am greatfull for. Whenever I needed help the team was ready to support. Gracias Bacalar pueblo magico

I really enjoyed volunteering the hostel - there are a few other volunteers and it feels really nice to immerse yourself in one place after moving around a lot while travelling. I worked in reception and we agreed on 3x 8 hour shifts a week which means you get 4 days off a week to enjoy Bacalar. There is a very welcoming and social team, and I hope to come back next time I visit Bacalar!
