  • Description



    We (Mia and David) discovered this beautiful island in 2007, while travelling around Mexico for the first time, searching for colors, new experiences, tastes and feelings. Our hostel is a familiar place opened in 2010 on the remote island of ‘Holbox’.

    The hostel was build from scratch and most of the furniture, details, paintings were made with a lot of love and a HUGE help by our volunteers during all these years. We always wanted to create a different hostel, not just a place where people sleep... but a place that makes people smile every time people think about it.

    This is a vibrant and colorful place, with a lot of plants and great people on a tiny paradise in Mexico!!

    Our mission is to transform holidays here into an EXPERIENCE where guests from all over the world help us create a space filled with music, art & culture. We also have a nice bar that offers different activities every night: jam sessions, movie nights, live music, quiz nights, giant Jenga, dress-up parties and projects more to be done. Reason why we accept volunteers all year long :)

    We are looking for a dedicated ☛“social butterfly” ☚This could involve organising trips to the beach, sunset beers or getting a group together for a night out.

    The perfect volunteer is someone who loves interacting with people, highly energetic and able to communicate in English and Spanish to rally our guests together to have the best time possible. We will also need you to do some flyering in the evenings.

    Holbox is a wild island with sandy beaches, were people who enjoy nature will truly appreciate.

    We have the Whale Shark season from May to September and the Kite Boarding season from October till May.... It is a place where people come to relax in the beach and enjoy surreal nights swimming under a starry sky in the bioluminescence sea!

    Without our volunteers, this wouldn't be such a great place, this is why we welcome volunteers of different nationalities even before we opened its doors!

    For us a volunteer is like a guest who will bring life to the hostel and part of the staff who works to provide the best memories ever!

    The help consists in 4h shifts 6 days a week, in exchange of accommodation, located in a cool apartment 2 minutes from the hostel. And as an incentive for your hard work we will provide you with half price drinks at the bar and other staff benefits.

    We ask for a minimum of three weeks stay.

    Please, feel free to ask us any question...

    We love having people from all around the world, but it would be only possible for us to receive people that work part time shifts. If it's a full time job, we have already experienced that it doesn't really work for either parts.
