Hi Future Volunteer!
We are a hostel located in Tulum, Mexico that has been open for some years, but are now working on ways to improve and renovate our space and service. We are not a very big hostel, with two cabins in tropical vegetation containing two 6 bed dorms and four 2 bed privates. The cabins have fully screened windows, ceiling fans and hot showers. The cabins are organized around a little tropical garden with hammocks to relax and a terrace to eat and hang out. In the evening, we open the front-end of the hostel as a restaurant that serves delicious things like pizza, hamburgers, and special dinners on occasion.
We are located right in the center of Tulum and by bike it is 3.5 km to one of the most beautiful Caribbean beaches that is not very crowded. Next door to our hostel is a diving center that enables our guests to dive in the ocean or in the cenotes that are around here. We are tucked away on a street off the main road, so the area is relatively quiet yet. Within a few minutes walking, there are numerous bars and restaurants to enjoy.
We are looking for volunteers to be at the hostel at all times during the year to make the hostel experience great and to generally just lend a hand.

Our volunteers assist with all aspects of the daily hostel maintenance. This includes handling reception (greeting, booking guests, providing information, recording cash transactions) grocery runs, food preparation, serving food and drinks, laundry, as well as cleaning the kitchen, garden, and hostel accommodations when needed.
The volunteer will work 6 days/week for 4 hours a day. This can be flexible - and will vary depending on our current situation and the volunteer because I want you to be able to enjoy this country and your time here as well.
We are hoping that our volunteers will enjoy being close to the beach and living in small but beautiful town and being surrounded by nature. Due to our proximity to the ruins of Tulum, the cenotes and other nice coastal towns like playa del carmen, we encourage our volunteers to explore the area and also the nature and jungle surrounding us. Also you will can go to Akumal and see the turtles or dive in the ocean or in the cenotes.
So if you are up for a good time, meeting new people and expanding your horizons - please email us!
Volunteers will have a dorm bed and a shared bathroom in an apartment located apart from the hostel, about 10 minutes by bicycle or 20 minutes by foot. You will have access to WiFi and a hot shower only at the hostel, and the staff kitchen is available when it is not in use to prepare breakfast and dinner for guests.
We rent bikes to guests during the day, but they are available to you when they are not in use. During the evening, bikes are available to ensure a safe and swift ride back to the volunteer apartment.
