I had a wonderful experience at Lacandona! Lots of free time to see the city or travel to other cities during your 4 days off. Speaking Spanish is pretty important because, from my experience, most of the guest were Spanish speakers. Location is veeery nice since it's centrally located; close to bars, restaurants, pharmacies, etc. I recommend this place if you plan on going to Córdoba for some time!!!




Anna the manager is a friendly person that always help the hosts of the hostel when they need.
The hostel is cozy and located in the center of Nueva Cordoba.
I mainly worked during the night, and after 1 or 2 night of adaptation everything was fine.
I learned a lot from this experience (learnt spanish, met very good people, and learnt the tasks related to hostel management).
Gracias por todo y hasta la proxima :)




Mi experiencia en Lacandona fue súper buena! Muy bien ubicado, el hostel tiene buena onda y el trabajo es tranquilo y ordenado. Muchas gracias a Gui, Anita y a todos con quien viví lindos días! Nos vemos! :)




En Lacandona he sumado experiencia y aprendizaje. Las tareas son diversas, entretenidas. Hay flexibilidad de turnos y horarios. Principalmente recepción, de todos modos pueden surgir actividades extras, bien dinamico! El hostel es súper cómodo por la ubicación y las instalaciones. La convivencia con el staff fue una mixtura muy interesante y colavorativa. Muy buena predisposición. Muchas gracias por recibirme, por hacer de este intercambio algo sumamente positivo. Sin dudas hay muchas anécdotas que seguir recordando. Gracias Ani :D a mis compañeres, Greta! Abrazos, Salut!




Guilherme é uma pessoa muito gente boa. Me recepcionou muito bem e me ensinou as tarefas. As tarefas são simples e acessíveis para voluntários de qualquer nível.
Alguns pontos a considerar:
1)O hostel possui lavanderia, mas o voluntário tem que pagar.
2)O hostel vende bebidas e não se pode levar de fora, mas mesmo com desconto para voluntário, é mais caro do que em qualquer mercado ou conveniência.
3)Tentaram aumentar minha carga horária, mesmo após o que estava acordado aqui no WorldPackers. Mesmo permanecendo a carga anterior após minha recusa, me causou um certo desconforto.
