It was an amazing experience in every way. Carlos was very welcoming and a great host! I felt at home every day and I became friends with other volunteers and guests. The work that needs to be done is simple and it leaves you with enough time to discover the city and do other activities. I would totally recommend this experience to everybody who wants to visit Guadalajara and have a great time.

Hostal Americana se convirtió en mi casa. Tanto Carlos como el resto de los voluntarios están muy a gusto con el lugar y el trabajo en equipo que te sientes como en familia. Lo único bueno de la cuarentena fue tener un hogar, en Hostal Americana. El trabajo fue super llevadero y a gusto y vivir ahí es muy cómodo. Gracias Carlos!

Excelente experiencia contar con Ana en el Hostal! Ella llego antes de que empezara la pandemia COVID y estuvo con nosotros durante toda la situación. Sin duda la recomendaria a cualquier Host! Muchas gracias por todo Ana :)



Carlos y Lula fueron las personas más increíbles que pude conocer en Guadalajara. Te hacen sentir como en casa y Hostal Americana se convierte automáticamente en tu hogar y tu familia. Las tareas son súper suaves y el ambiente es maravilloso, con un personal increíble. Recomiendo a todos los que vengan a Guadalajara a tener una oportunidad de voluntariado en el Hostal Americana, que sin duda es el mejor hostal de la ciudad.

Luani is one of those persons who always have a smile on her face and makes you trust since the moment you meet her. She is a very responsable, social, funny, hardworking girl. I would recommend her to any host with eyes closed. We will y miss you Luani!
