After nearly 10 years of renovation efforts led by nonprofit Hostelling Arkansas Inc. and the City of Little Rock, the 1917 Craftsman-style building in MacArthur Park known as “Fire Station 2” will officially reopen as the Firehouse Hostel and Museum.

The building houses 36 twin-size bunk beds starting at $28/night, and an overnight stay there includes free continental breakfast, off-street parking, bedding and towels, storage lockers, wi-fi, a guest computer and a fully-equipped kitchen. 

The museum and hostel can be seen firsthand at the hostel's Locals Only Opening Party & Sleepover on Sept. 17, an all-day celebration featuring a Community Kids Fishing and Health Fair in MacArthur Park starting at 9 a.m., tours of the firefighting museum starting at 10 a.m., food trucks and drinks available for sale at 5 p.m. and live music at 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, the grand opening continues with a free public celebration at noon Sunday, Sept. 18.

Reserve a bunk bed here, or to arrange a group or school tour of the firefighting museum, call 501-476-0294 or email info@firehousehostel.org.
