  • Description


    We are 2 friends managing a hostel (from Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas and Mexico City). We are looking for somebody respectful, friendly, creative and preferably with experience working at hostels.

    We need help:
    - cleaning up (bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, common areas),
    - welcoming our guests and
    - other activities that we have at the hostel (dinners, bbq's).

    We will try to make you feel at home, part of the family. As long as we live here you're not gonna feel alone.

    - Bed in exchange for help!
    - You can use the kitchen and of course all the common areas
    - English and Spanish needed

    Its preferably if you stay at least a month (the longer the better) but also depends on the vibe and how we connect.

    We have 2 dogs and a cat, the house is very pretty and most of the people are travellers that make our time better here.
    We are 2 minutes walking away from the beach and very close from all the restaurants and shops here in La Punta. Zicatela is just 25 minutes away walking on the beach and 5 minutes away by taxi. Its a surftown so, is also a great opportunity to go surfing!

    Tenemos 2 perros y un gato, la casa es grande y bonita y la mayoria de los viajeros hacen la estancia mejor en el hostal. Estamos a 2 minutos de la playa y muy cerca de los restaurantes y tiendas aqui en la Punta Zicatela. Zicatela, el siguiente vecindario esta a 25 minutos caminando por la playa y 5 minutos en taxi. Y como esta es una playa de surf, es una gran oportunidad para surfear!
