  • Description

    Description

    Live in one of the most beautiful cities of Mexico. UNESCO HERITAGE

    Our hostel is set in a small and picturesque colonial building in the centre of Puebla. We pride ourselves on its chill and homely feeling, and the small, close knit team that work here. If your friendly, outgoing, and love to laugh you'll fit right in here. It'd also be a great opportunity for you to pracitise your Spanish!

    Puebla is the perfect city to use as a base, away from the smog of the big city, but central enough to be accessible to the rest of the country (5hrs from Oaxaca, 2 hrs from CDMX, and 4 hrs from Veracruz). The city itself feels more like a small town with its beautiful colonial architecture and lack of high-rises.

    We would welcome volunteers who are responsable and enthusiatic about sharing their travel experiences and helping out guests with our own. We also look for people who would like to bring their own unique skills to bear on the hostel. Whether you're a graphic designer, social media expert, or event organiser, let us know what you can bring to the table.

    Please, if you can't stay with us for at least a month, don't apply. Thank you

    Living in the hostel will be a great opportunity to practise your Spanish. A reasonable amount of our guests are Mexicans, and our staff (some of whom only speak Spanish) are more than willing to help.
