    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be living in a traditional, chilled and not touristic neighborhood, located only 4 metro stations from MXCity Downtown. Due to the projects we do on the neighborhood our communication and interaction with the community is strong and gives you the chance to really get to know the people in the community.

    There is a market, an sport place and a park literally around the corner.

    You can learn different art and building techniques depending on the resident artists doing a project. Most of the resident artist teaches a course to the community and everyone in the team can be part of it, either helping to make it or taking the course. You can also learn, or course, how the business of a hostel works. And get to know people from all over the world.
