"Explore, Discover, Share ... " is My Life Motto (ask me why)
The *MAIN* reason to stay here is that I will be Everything to You as your Resident Host. With more than 50 years ( a HALF-CENTURY ) experience WRITING professionally about this area (AND reporting on it) , i can humbly yet confidently share with you that no one appreciates, nor knows more about, Lafayette & The Acadiana Region - the Cajun Heart of Louisiana and the World - as do I.
This fact alone will save you TIME & MONEY if you stay here. I can assure that you make THE MOST of BOTH during a stay on 1,2,3 or more days. I also know PEOPLE here who can HELP you in a variety of ways. Experienced travelers need read no further. YOU will instantly know what i mean (I have many contacts in the community that can help in a variety of ways) ...
The other main reason to stay with me is a Perfect LOCATION. I am in the CENTER of Lafayette and ALL of Acadiana, convenient to everything that will make your trip the Best Experience for you & a Lifelong Memory. Just look at a map & see for yourself ...
I am choosy. This is my personal home. Not every traveler wants or gets to stay here, because I have created a Home of Joy, Peace, Rest, Harmony, Pleasure, and 1,000 stories i have to share, and many travelers just want the cheapest place.
You will be happier & build more memories here, but i understand if you must go elsewhere. But write me first at 2joeparis at Gee Mayle. I can recommend a Great Place, as i know many of this area's Hosts ... i know i can help you choose the best place if i am full or not the Best Fit for you ...
BUT IF you want an UNFORGETTABLE experience & a unique perspective from a Lifelong Writer & Storyteller, THEN I'm your man & this is Your Place. Hope to see you soon! (ALL PRICES are negotiable if you arrange to pay me in a way upon which we both agree. If you are flexible, you *will* save money) ...
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” ~*~ Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It

My Hostel has much Lived-in Beauty, as it is a FAMILY HOME - and therefore is NO Taj Mahal. This is a REAL HOME. If you expect perfection or are the kind of "white-gloved" traveler who will judge me on "Hotel" standards, then you will be happier in a hotel, probably - but then you would miss some of the 1,000 stories i will share with you.
So come be part of this Unique Hostel & spend some time with me - i have been Hosting folks for more than half of a century & will Always be a person who prefers to Share my Life as a Father, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, Friend, Neighbor, former Husband (we are, BTW, still good friends) & Active Community Member who stays engaged.
We are RELAXED, laid back, & easy going here, and although very Clean & Hygenic & even Sustainable (we save gray water for our organic garden & recycle & compost in the kitchen in a closed container), we are *not* immaculate. So keep searching if you wear White Gloves, literally OR figuratively ...
Choose to stay here if you appreciate Great VALUE rather than just low cost ... experienced travelers know the difference ... for in 20 years or 10 or 5 or 3 or even 1 year - what will matter most : Your Money or your MEMORIES ?? I kindly suggest the latter will ...
