  • Description


    My name is Cristopher, I am Mexican and I openend a little Hostel with 4 rooms. I opened this place one year ago and I live here with my family. I have 2 little children (8 years and 1 year old). In high season we are usually full, but in low season we need more tourists. We have also a restaurant with typical mexican food where we prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • Help


    We are looking for one volunteer who can help us with a bit of everything. We are a small place, but there are always some things to do. For example: Help with the tourists, help and cook in the kitchen, waitress/waiter, a bit of cleaning (we have just 4 rooms, so it won¨t be too much cleaning ;)). I want to learn and practice my english,(french, italian, portuguese) so if you could teach me and help me with the tourists that would be perfect.
    We need a person who can speak a basic spanish so that we can communicate.

    Our hostel is located in the magical village/town San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, which is a very popular and touristy town in the mountains (Los altos de Chiapas). There is a lot of nature around the city and it is the perfect place if you love extreme sports (rappelling/abseiling, canoe, mountainbiking, motocross etc..)
    The hostel is located 2 blocks away from the center, where you will find a huge variety of bars, restaurants, shops, cultural centers, museums, art galleries etc. There are always people, there is always live music and I promise you won¨t get bored here.
    We offer also offer tours here: For example to the Canyon Submidero, to Palenque, Lago de Montebello, Selva de Lacandona etc. We offer a special price for our volunteer.
