Our place is not simply a place for travelers to sleep. It’s more like a community house that attracts like-minded people. A place where yogis, meditators, musicians, artists, healers, and generally magical people like yourself come to recharge and connect. We are 100% not a party hostel, but there’s a super friendly, social vibe if you feel like ‘peopling’--and a super chill, laid-back vibe for when you’d rather hang with the hostel’s two cats.
The hostel is located right in the charming historic center of San Cristobal de las Casas, within a 5-10 minute walk from anything you could ever need. Local markets, restaurants, nature hikes, and main attractions.

We offer free yoga classes 4 days a week, taught by talented teachers from around the world, with a variety of yoga styles including hatha, vinyasa, yin, and kundalini. These classes are free for hostel guests and volunteers like yourself. Professional quality Manduka yoga mats and blocks are provided.
You will also have access to meditation cushions and blankets if you wish to use the outdoor terrace space or indoor common areas to meditate. The town of San Cristobal is full of spiritual events and activities like ecstatic dances, kirtans, cacao ceremonies, sound baths, and healing workshops.
If you are someone who does work online or takes online classes, our hostel is digital-nomad friendly. We have some of the fastest, most reliable internet in town, and quiet spaces to get work done.
Every volunteer resident in the program works three 5-hour shifts per week and one 2-hour shift (on average), which is considerably less work time than most volunteer programs. We take on more volunteers so each person can work fewer hours at the hostel and have more time to work on themselves and their own passion projects.
You will know your shift schedule for the whole six weeks in advance. We require a six-week commitment to keep the rotating schedule working smoothly for all six volunteer spots. You will have the option to extend your stay for another 6 weeks if you wish.
You will be working the reception desk, checking guests in and out, some light cleaning ( bathroom checks), and helping to set up the yoga mats for classes. We are looking for people who will approach the volunteer position from a place of service and love, much like a Karmic Yogi. Someone who will be friendly and fully present when interacting with guests and while helping keep the hostel clean and organized.
You will have several 'shadow shifts' with current volunteers before you start your own solo shifts, as well as training videos, to ensure you feel prepared for the position.

We have 1 room with 6 bunk beds for all the volunteer residents.
San Cristobal de las Casas is known as a “pueblo mágico” (magic town). The town has a special magnetic vibe that seems to attract people from all over the world. This vibe lured the hostel’s owners, Herb and Alla, to settle here after years of traveling the world. For about half of the year, they run a Spiritual Residency Program at the hostel, where in exchange for work shifts, volunteers get meditation training, hypnotherapy sessions, cacao ceremonies, and much more.
Right now this program is on hiatus while Herb and Alla recharge and work on other projects. When the program resumes, we will update the Work Away description with the details and available dates. (Those who volunteer at the hostel in the meantime will get priority for the Spiritual Residency 6-week program when it resumes, if they wish to return for it.)

We have the fastest, and generally most reliable, internet in town. We upgraded the hostel's internet last year to the same one that the co-working cafes use. Our hostel is generally quiet during the day, making it easy for people who work online, have virtual meetings, etc. We have quiet common areas with tables both indoors and outdoors.
