Hey y'all from Shelby and Joe!
My name is Shelby and and along with Joe (my business partner) - we are the proud owners of a wonderful hostel situated in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. The hostel is your quintessential New Orleans style home, with the spirit and personality to match. Our vision is to create an environment where people from all over the globe can fully immerse themselves in the New Orleans culture while making life long friends. Our job, and yours, is to maintain a comfortable, social and lively atmosphere for all of our guests. This is our chance to engage with truly amazing people and offer them thoughtful service to better personalize their stay here in New Orleans.
UPDATE: THE HOSTEL IS SHUTTING DOWN AND WE ARE LOOKING FOR HELP DECONSTRUCTING IT FROM OCTOBER 1st TO OCTOBER 14TH AND FOR HELP AFTER THAT BUILDING A TINY HOUSE!

This host offers accommodation and payment.
Host has indicated that they will pay at least the minimum hourly wage of their country for each hour worked and that accommodation will also be provided. They are asking for help with a business or business activity. Contact the host directly via the site messenger for more information and details about the wage provided. Any arrangements should be agreed in advance with your host.
Firstly from October 1st until October 14th (2020) we are looking for volunteers to help with the shutting down of the hostel. This basically means deconstructing some beds, moving things out, general deconstruction. In this project you would be staying at the hostel, but there will not be guests there, although there may be other volunteers.
Whenever that project is finished we have a personal project of ours that we are looking for a couple volunteers help on a follow up project. We are building a tiny home and renovating our current home! That will run from mid-October until February or March '21, and we are looking for people that can commit a month somewhere in there. The work would be construction and general labor mainly - no experience necessary as we would aim to teach as we went. In this project you would be staying at our personal home in the Bywater (with a semi-private room, and all utilities, wifi etc.)
For both of these projects we would be looking for around 5 hours per day (not Sunday).
Please let me know if either of those interest you and we can talk more!

New Orleans is a wonderful place filled with charm, rich history, diverse culture, world class music and art. It is a city with a feeling. Living here you will be able to get a local sense and enjoy its lively, free spirited always fun nature. Located near the hostel are amazing bars, restaurants and shops along with museums galore. This town loves its liberal arts and will be a great time to let your creative mind shine. We are located four blocks from the street car (trolley, tram) which is a nostalgic piece of New Orleans that takes you all around town for $3 a day. There will be bikes provided as well. We are 4 blocks from the Central Business District and 14 blocks to the famous French Quarter! There is music all around, so musicians and music enthusiasts a like will never have a shortage of good tunes and great vibes. I can't stress enough how amazing the energy is here. The culture is to simply Les Bon Temps Rouller (Let the good times roll).
