I really enjoyed my time at the hostel in Clarksdale. The work was simple, mainly housekeeping and cleaning, and the work hours were very fair. The work was very chill as I was the only volunteer. The owners, Robert and Lucy, are incredibly welcoming and kind, and have created such a fun and friendly atmosphere at their hostel. I would also highly recommend going during the juke joint festival, as you got to really see the town come to life then. If youre looking for a volunteering opportunity in a cozy small town in America, this is the place for you.

Andrea thank you so much for coming and giving Clarksdale a chance. We love to show people this really awesome small town in "less traveled" America. We appreciate all you did for us and I'm excited to see you soon in NOLA. Hope it all works out!

Rob and Lucy are the kindest, most open, welcoming and caring and funny people in the world. I am so grateful to have spent a month with you. I had the time of my life, a huge thank you for your warm welcome at the hostel and within your family and of course for the unforgettable memories. The hostel is great, beautifully decorated and is truly a heaven of peace. Clarksdale is such a warm and welcoming town, I really felt home. I can only recommend to anyone to go to Clarksdale, the hostel and volunteer at the hostel!

Rob and Lucy were great to stay with and made me feel very welcome. The work was easy and their hostel is very homey. Clarksdale is a small town in the Delta of the hostel, with a lot of history relating to the hostel music. As someone who hadn't listened to much the hostel before I enjoyed the local music scene.

If you are looking for a genuine American countryside experience, with the friendliest people you will ever meet, go to Clarksdale, MS. I just had the most amazing time while I was there. Lucy and Robert will welcome you in their beautiful hostel as a member of their family from day 1, and you will soon be part of the entire downtown community. The work is cool and the schedule is flexible. It is a small town with a real laid-back vibe, where you can meet people from all around the world, and listen to live music every night. Overall, it is a worldpackers experience I strongly recommend!!

I found my time in Clarksdale to be very eventful. Robert is an excellent host and the hostel is absolutely gorgeous. I enjoyed learning about the towns music history I'm getting to meet with local business owners. Will definitely be back
