The Experience

We need a traveler to help us with cleaning and reception during the night. There is a lot of interaction and sometimes the nights are quiet. If no guests arrive, you can sleep early. If that happens, you could provide very specific day tasks. You already have the afternoon to visit part of the city and you are granted one day off a week. You can also opt for some extra exit without problem :) Two hours in the morning. In the nigth 3 more.

Mike is a great host, he welcomed me very well not only since the first day but by helping me with everything I needed before my trip. The hostel is a good place, very central to the city and with a lot places to get everything you need around, such as super market, pharmacy, bus station, etc. The city is kinda boring though, after one week there is not much left to do and you might wanna go to other sides of Guatemala to enjoy your time. I recommend aligning everything with Mike before traveling, specially if something in the proposal is especificly important to you.

Mi visita por Guatemala City fue buena gracias a la colaboración de Luis y Miguel, que me ayudaron en lo que necesitaba y daban tips para recorrer la cuidad. Son personas increíbles con las que se puede dialogar y llegar acuerdos con los horarios y más. Gracias por toda la buena onda.
