The Experience

Hola! Necesitamos ayuda para manejar un hostal. En realidad, las principales tareas de limpieza las hace nuestro personal pero nos gusta mucho la vibra que traen los voluntarios. En especial cuando aportan sus habilidades personales para dejar una huella por acá! Las tareas se hacen en el hostal para que nos puedan apoyar a estar atentos a recepción. El hostal es para 30 personas máximo porque nos gusta que se sientan como en casa. :)

Many other volunteers asked me about this project so I will be clear and honest: you will do cleaning and it will be so much work because you are alone in your shift (doesn't count with the manager), also be careful with the 💰 (they will tell you don't say to the owner, so be careful) and there is another volunteer who is not doing anything so you should be aware about that you will work more hours than try offered, so cheers and good luck

We feel very sad to leave this review. Specially, since we write several times to this person to see if it was all ok at work and he never say anything until the last days and then now. While you are alone during your shift, all tasks are scattered through the day so everyone helps. To give you an example, if one where to do all tasks non-stop, it should take you half a day only. Even less time during covid-times, like it was this case. Now that tourism is revamping, our cleaning lady is coming back also to help.
To those who read this, we encourage you to check our reviews in other booking sites to see the quality of the hostel.

The owner, not only cares about
his hostel but also the volunteers and guests. Sukha was awesome! Beyond what I could ask for the experience. I would definitely recommend to anyone!

Volunteering at Sukha was a joy. The hostel itself has a great location and satisfactory ameneties all around. The owner, Alex, was friendly and helpful when I had questions about anything. The list of daily tasks is always organized and expectations are always clear. I would recommend Sukha to anyone traveling to SLP.

Es una experiencia bastante tranquila, tanto que incluso se puede volver rutinario ahora que no hay tanto movimiento en la ciudad.
