  • Had a great stay in this hostel, atmosphere was amazing. Staff were also very friendly. Caleb was awesome, really knowledgeable and would go out of his way to make your stay comfortable. This man deserves a pay rise!!!

  • You can't judge Bourbon House on its first impression (the location and outside are a bit dodgy) but the staff are lovely. The beds are comfy and there's lots of clean bathrooms. I got eaten alive by mosquito's outside but it's a great place to socialise with everyone else over breakfast (free pancakes) or a night out on Frenchman Street.Every day they have a board of gigs around town and they will give you a ride to the Greyhound when it's time to go.

  • Staff is extremely nice and friendly. We watched the WC '14 together, was really fun. Other then that a decent Hostel in a good location close to bourbon (Bus or Cab ~$10). Would def. recommend it!

  • Very close to the beautiful Garden District and the shops on Magazine Street, hostel is a bit basic though and covered in bugs! Don't stay here if you can't deal with creepy crawlies. Thankfully it didn't bother us, but it would creep a lot of people out. The bathrooms were all ridiculously hot as well, like pass-out hot. Didn't seem to be any reason for it. Everyone was really nice though, and helpful, full of recommendations.

  • This place was ok, it was a little dirty (a bug on the wall near my room that was there the entire time I was there) and the floors in the bathroom were off but it was not a bad place to stay. Staff was very helpful.

  • It's a home away from home. Walking distance to Walmart, different bars and restaurants, Convention Center, and French Quarter area. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. And most of all, you get more than your money's worth. I definitely recommend this place!

  • This is a SUPER LOUD hostel. Come here if you want to party. Don't come here if you want to sleep. No one enforces any quiet hours or quiet spaces, and people party in all parts of the hostel at all hours (4am? Yep.) Also, just because you're booked in a female dorm doesn't mean you'll get one; they mix genders in rooms whenever there is a "shortage," regardless of your preferences or what you paid for.
    Owner Comment

    Please see your reservation for the rooms that you booked. You reserved a female dorm for your first night and a mixed dorm the second night of your stay. Due to the busy, French Quarter Fest weekend, the designated female dorm was purposely switched into a mixed dorm for the weekend. Ultimately it prevented you from having to switch any rooms, however we DID NOT have any designated female dorms for the busy weekend. There was never a shortage, your reservation was correct. Thanks
