Welcome to the community!

Our place is a former Hollywood mansion that has been converted by the family into a hostel and guesthouse. The house, designed by famed Los Angeles architect Paul Williams, was the home of the first African-American actor to have earned a star on the Walk of Fame. These historical properties exude Old Hollywood energy by embracing world travelers and professionals with the extravagant luxury of Louis XVI furnishings.

We take pride in the amenities and atmosphere that we offer both staff and guests. All of our properties have free wifi and laundry, fully-equipped kitchens, private bathrooms, and full access to the mansion`s backyard swimming pool and weight machines. Additionally, we offer a complimentary hot breakfast (8 to 10 AM), which includes waffles, cheese grits, oatmeal, and beverages. We are a 10-minute walk away from the Metro Expo Line, which will take you to Santa Monica, Downtown LA, and other key tourist sites.

The atmosphere here is open and collaborative, and the owner is always interested in ideas for improvement (there is nothing we love more than a pro-active attitude!) So we are looking for volunteers who are not only willing to complete their tasks efficiently, but are also interested in contributing to our community. Current volunteers have organized activities such as dinners and BBQs, yoga and language classes, and group trips around Los Angeles. If you have anything you would like to bring to the table, you will be most welcome!

Typically, volunteers work part-time, about 25 hours a week. Though this might change depending on department and duties. In exchange for your work, you are given a bed in a shared dorm and free breakfast (which always has a vegetarian option), and full use of the facilities. We ask for a minimum stay of 8 weeks. Some volunteers choose to extend your stay, and depending on availability, that`s usually an option we`re happy to discuss with you. Bilingualism is a plus, and we are happy to accept international volunteers interested in improving their English.

We ask that all volunteers help maintain a clean and guest-friendly environment, refrain from smoking and drug use on the premises, and treat all shared areas/property with courtesy and respect. If you think that you would be a good fit, we would love to hear from you!

Type of helps : housekeeping, cleaning, office (check-in / check-out, phone call etc...) or cooking.

We need of course serious, organize and clean people.

We require volunteers to give 25 hours a week in exchange for a bed in a dorm, breakfast (there is always a vegetarian option and dietary restrictions can be accommodated.) Unless otherwise preferred, you will likely work 5 days in a row, followed by 2 days off.

> Please note : Concerning meals only the breakfast is including everyday but NOT the diner or lunch.
