We are very enthusiastic about improving our English, and we hope you are enthusiastic about speaking Spanish as well. We are new to the hostel business, so we hope to learn from your travel experiences, while at the same time showing you how we've adapted the environment of a backpackers' hostel to the particulars of Mexican culture. If you come here, we will surely spend many hours on our rooftop patio overlooking downtown Puebla, talking about our respective countries over coffee or tea.
Day to day duties chiefly consist of cleaning common areas, dormitories, and bathrooms. Travelers who have skills or experience which could contribute to maintenance are encouraged to apply (e.g. carpentry, electrical, house-painting, etc.). If you have some other skill that you think could be helpful to us, please include this information in your inquiry. Your schedule will be five days of work and two days off, with shifts lasting five hours.
