    Hello from beautiful Central Arkansas!

    We have immediate openings for volunteers at this unique hostel and museum in Little Rock, AR.

    We are a registered charity 501c3 non profit organization.

    We are looking for kind folks to join us for one month to three months at Arkansas' only International Firefighting Museum and Hostel.
    As a non profit organization we have undertaken saving, renovating, and bringing back to life Fire Station 2 within Little Rock's oldest park (MacArthur Park named after the famous WWII General Douglas MacArthur) and turning it into a hostel and fire Station museum. The museum is free to the public to visit and our gift back to the community. Our neighbors within the City Park are the Arkansas Arts Center and MacArthur Military Museum.

    We are looking for enthusiastic, outgoing individuals who are interested in the ins and outs of operating a unique and special place for travelers. Our ratings are high, and we are well-regarded in the hosteling community. We appreciate any help maintaining this high standard. In exchange for about 25 hours per week of various day to day chores, we will provide you with a bed, breakfast, Wi-Fi access, laundry and kitchen facilities. The main hours of focus are 3pm - 10pm for guest check-ins, but we have multiple shift that work through the day! Let us know, and we can work it out! Most importantly, we want you to have ample time to interact with the local community and travelers who are staying at the hostel. There are plenty of things to do nearby, and it helps you share local knowledge with guests when you experience them too!

    Little Rock is a low-cost Mega-Bus ride away from Dallas, Memphis, St. Louis & Chicago. We also get daily train service via AMTRAK's Texas Eagle (serving San Antonio, Austin, Fort Worth, St. Louis to Chicago and points between). There is also an airport that connects to many major cities in the US. Once you're here, the city has public transportation to get you to downtown stores and restaurants. We also provide bicycles for volunteers and guest to explore with, Little Rock also has BIRD scooters around town for rent. The hostel is within walking distance from groceries, food, bars, museums, and other hot spots!

    If you love small cities with a cosmopolitan spirit, lots to offer in the way of food, entertainment, and outdoor activities then Little Rock will be a pleasant surprise!
