The Yak

Hello everybody!! We are a fairly new hostel located in the beautiful city of Playa del Carmen, just two blocks from the beach and half a block from the greatest clubs in town. Our hostel was created by travelers, for people who want have fun, meet new people, party hard, and just enjoy the good life this city can offer. Our idea is to provide excellent accommodation (clean rooms, quality mattresses, big kitchens, etc.) like a hotel, but with the cool, social vibe of a fun hostel -- lots of games, parties, and social activities so that there is never a dull moment! Since our opening in Sept. '12, we have been constantly trying to improve our facilities so that there is always something new and surprising--this means that there are plenty of extra projects to help out with! We welcome new ideas for improvement so that we can make this place even more awesome than it already is :) ***Exciting news! We have been working hard on the construction of another hostel in the peaceful town of Bacalar (Mexico), located right on the vast, incredible lagoon. We will be looking for Receptionists, Bartenders, and more to staff this new hostel at the end of October and early November!

For most positions, we need energetic, responsible, and proactive people that have great social skills! We do require that you speak English and intermediate Spanish. There is a strict NO DRUGS policy in the hostel. Minimum stay: 6 Weeks As we are newer and our needs are constantly changing, we have a hard time confirming with volunteers well in advance. So please contact us for information on how to get to the hostel and then just drop by when you are in Playa del Carmen. This way we can meet in person, inform you of our staff availability, and see if it is a good fit! Thank you very much and we hope to see you soon :):)

My stay in this hostel became an unforgettable experience! From the first moment I felt welcome here. The team is fun and united, the opinion of everyone was important and we were trying to make the hostel a better place all together. The atmosphere is friendly and the activities inside the hostel are nice. I learned to do the bartender's job with them and I am very grateful for that.




The Yak was an amazing professional experience! You will work hard but also you will have a lot of fun with this wonderful staff. Sadao is a lovely person and you will feel like in a family. The location is perfect and the atmosphere of the hostel is really great - probably the best hostel of Playa del Carmen! Also you will have a lot of benefits at the bar, tours and trips around Quintana Roo. I recommend it for everyone and I will remember this experience forever!
