The Experience

Volunteers needed to help keep the place clean, restock supplies, change bedding, do laundry and help with guest needs. The work isn't hard. Anywhere from 1-3 hours per day. If everything for the day is done, so are you. Rarely, we need help overnight answering the phone and just keeping an eye on the place. We want you to leave Detroit with a greater understanding of our city and hopefully a deep love. You will have an amazing experience.

About the host

Detroit is super cool, we promise. It is full of world class art, music, architecture and sometimes legendary nightlife. We love it so much that we opened this hostel to share the city with the world. Come and find out why. If you are a responsible adult and would like to explore the motor city while helping us out, we would love to hear from you...
