Hostel Beirut occupies the second apartment of an old concrete duplex in Beirut's residential Geitawi neighborhood.Hostel Beirut is buried in the labyrinth of churches, shoe shops and corner stores that make up the old neighborhood on Beirut's eastern border.Since the second week of February, Hostel Beirut has had two guests and has two more booked for the coming week.The accommodations are as straightforward as the name: three dorm rooms fitting six guests each, a communal shower room with three private stalls, two bathrooms (though one needs renovating), a communal kitchen, patio and an open living-dining room. Before coming here, Paulsen was on the other side of the world teaching English in Brazil. He now plans to use Hostel Beirut's profits to provide scholarships for Syrians studying at Lebanese universities. Paulsen is also interested in community building.
