  • Beschreibung


    We have space for ~15 guests & 6 volunteers, a mid-level terrace which we hope to develop into a small cafe, and the best rooftop terrace in all of SanCris, which we will soon open up to the public for sunsets & cocktails.

    The space has *huge* potential - we're looking for people who can help us realise that potential :)

    We are currently a team of volunteers, a house manager, the owner and a local (part time) helper (cleaning, sheets etc).

    We're the first Bitcoin-friendly BnB/Hostel/bar/CoLiving and Community Space in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, and Mexico.

    (Bitcoin-friendly = we encourage, but definitely don't demand payment in Bitcoin).

    Your main responsibility will be running the Hostel/BnB/CoLiving - manning reception, keeping the place tidy, hosting guests etc.

    Our hostel is busy & fun, but all guests have large private spaces to chill out. We have the most beautiful roof terrace in SanCris, and we open up the terrace to the public for small events like SunSets, as well as our mid-level terrace bar/cafe.

    We only recently opened up the space, in March last year - we also need help painting, decorating, renovating, and generally improving the place.

    We have fast internet so we welcome nomads and remote workers. We're very LGBTQIA+ friendly too, with queer-identifying members already in our nascent community :)

    We have space for 6 volunteers, and key roles include:

    - Reception & Housekeeping
    - Renovation and DIY
    - Activities and community growth
    - Content Creation & Social Media

    The schedule is around 4 days on, 3 days off.

    We prefer commitments no less than a month, but we can be flexible for the right people. We have short stay options for influencers/content creators/carpenters/plumbers/any other renovation skill etc, just give us a shout.

  • Unterkunft


    Hostel / BnB / CoLiving. Volunteers will sleep in a shared room, in private, very comfortable japanese style pod/capsules. We provide breakfast for volunteers, the rest of the meals are up to you. We often cook for each other and do family meals, but this is an informal thing :)

    Was noch ...

    The local area is full of things to do - hiking, exploring the beautiful old-colonial town, numerous churches, lots of markets, local indigenous villages and much, much more. There is an incredible canyon nearby, lakes, forests... The town has loads of excellent bakeries, cafés, restaurants, and *more* than anything, SanCris is an incredibly lively town, especially if you're into live music. There are things to do every day and every night - everyone extends their stay in SanCris!

    There's also the option to practice Spanish, English & French in our community, and the local area has many opportunities to learn about and experience Mexican culture. By volunterring, you'll learn about startups, tourism and hospitality, renovation, community growth/management and marketing. Come to SanCris and fall in love with local area and local culture, and use us as a base for exploring the beautiful mountains and valleys of Chiapas :)
