Pros – clean environment, reasonable tasks, comfortable bed, and received three decent meals per day.

Cons – Jose L did not respect the agreed upon work hours or my day off. The agreement was 32 hours a week and 1 day off. I asked for a work schedule at the very beginning to avoid confusion. He would not set one. He had me work from 8am to between 2-330pm daily and took the position that I must be at the hotel in the evenings so that I could help guests. One day, he woke me up at 5:30 am to receive guests. He had me work on my day off at 10:30 pm. I worked 33 hours in only 5 days.

Si te gusta servir o quieres desarrollar tu habilidad para servir, aprender como se maneja un pequeño hotel con ambiente familiar y descubrir partes de la Ciudad de México, ¡este es el voluntariado perfecto para ti!

Mi estancia en Residence fue como un gran abrazo; desde las instalaciones que son bastante acogedoras, hasta los anfitriones José y Yovani que interactuaron conmigo siempre con respeto y hermandad. Mi posición era ayudante general enfocado en cocina, así, pude aprender de la mano de José la elaboración de docena de platillos mexicanos entre otros.
