  • "Breakfast included" means making pancakes for yourself. There are a lot of college students, probably because we are travelling during spring break. The rooms do not isolate noise very well, and we can clearly hear noise from outside inside our room. The staff is very nice. We need to take a bus to get to the French Quarter, and it is not safe to walk back home at night because the area is not well lit.

  • The hostel is an great location and very well set up. It was pretty busy, but still had no trouble getting checked in and set up. rented a couple locks for the lockers to keep stuff in. I've lived there before so I didn't ask the staff for much info, but the info I heard them give others was pretty spot on. House was a bit musty, but the weather was alternating from freezing to almost 80 in the same week, so I think that might have had something to do with it. Overall an excellent value.

  • Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Had a clean room and bathrooms, and spaces to hang out in. I had a good experience and would stay here again.

  • I show up and the guy asks if I just arrived in the city. I say no, I spent a night at a different hostel because AAE wasn't free the first night. Once I tell him the name of my hostel he tells me I can't stay at AAE because they don't take transfers from certain other hostels due to bed bugs. That is fair. JUST PUT THAT IN YOUR DESCRIPTION SO PEOPLE KNOW! Go to India House instead. Cool place with cool people!

  • Great hostel for the price, in a nice but quiet part of town. Easy walk to the trolley, friendly and knowledgeable staff, the dorms are very dark, and the doubles are spacious and nice. My only complaint is that there are not enough bathrooms for the number of people this place holds, especially in the morning.

  • I had a good stay there as I had a good group on my room. Room was very dark even in mornings which is good for sleeping but bad if you want to get up. Bit of a walk to public transport but excellent service from employees to provide a shuttle to & from bus station.

  • This hostel is ABSOLUTELY FILTHY. The showers appear not to have been cleaned for years. There are colonies of scum growing up the walls and near the drain hole. I have photos which I will pass on to In the dorm room there was such a build up of dirt, fluff and rubbish, it had matted into little piles. I do not know what the cleaner does. There is also a trip hazard from the common room to the outside area which they cover up with a mat instead of highlighting and labelling it.
