  • Description

    Description

    We are a hostel located in a beautiful old home in New Orleans, Louisiana. We have fantastic reviews and pride ourselves on our social atmosphere and the cultural experience our guests receive. We are always looking for workawayer's who fill office hours, cleaning needs, and lead our social events, with an emphasis on maintaining our awesome atmosphere and creating great relationships with our travelers.

    We expect our workawayer's to not just be here for their duties and disappear, but to become part of the hostel atmosphere, to eat, have fun, hang out with the guests, and participate in hostel activities.

    *️️️️️If you are here to "relocate", you already have friends in town, you plan on having another job, your partner is living here already, or for any other reason your priorities are elsewhere, then our hostel will not be the place for you.

    *️️️️Foreign workawayer's contact us about what is needed to workaway at the hostel!

    Helping at a hostel is the perfect place for travelers! You get to help side by side with like minded people who have the same zest for life as you. Moving into a different environment can often times be scary, but the upside to helping in a hostel is everyone is in the same position. Everyone is discovering a new land, reveling in the foreign atmosphere and learning about a new culture. This will be an experience where you can learn about the hospitality industry and what it takes to start a small business. You will be learning about others traveling experiences. People are very generous with the sharing their knowledge in the hostel world and it is a great place to network and find future business connections.

    Working here is one of their most pleasant and enjoyable experiences. Being exposed to multiple cultures is very life enriching. Meeting guests and getting to know people from all around the world creates fun and valuable experiences. If you are lovers of music, restaurants, arts or just any kind of fun things happening every night, you should definitely check out our hostel.
