We are a small, family-run hostel and we want our guest to feel at home. New Orleans is known for it's easy-going atmosphere and we try to incorporate that into our quirky, artistic, science-fiction-inspired hostel.
We treat volunteers as part of our family. We try to be considerate of everyone and be as flexible as we can with scheduling around their needs.
Site 61 is wonderful and somewhat against the grain hostel that is much more like a family/group Air B&B than your traditional party style hostel. In my month working there I got to make wonderful connections with both the staff and various guests. It's not located as centrally as some hostels but the nearby street trolly makes the French Quarter easily accessible. My only complaint could be that the hostel doesn't have an oven which was more of an issue of space than anything done on the part of the staff.
Thanks so much for the wonderful experience,

I had a great time at Site 61! Everyone is super friendly, the work is simple, and scheduling is flexible. I highly recommend Site 61 as a home base for exploring the rest of New Orleans, which is an incredible city in itself. I loved it here so much that I extended my stay a full month beyond what I had originally planned :)
