  • The hostel is really nice and it it well located but I think the price is a little to high according to what they offer.

  • I really loved the atmosphere and spirit of the hostel, it was comfortable and good value for money. I wish I'd been staying more nights because people seemed very open to conversation and interaction! Great place that I really enjoyed, everything was fair all around. Obviously it is a downtown hostel so there is noise outside, and the hostel accomodates late arrivals and brings them to a room, but if you are a light sleeper a hostel likely isn't for you in the first place

  • I had to cancel my reservation, I was trapped in New York because of a snowstorm, it was circumstances beyond my control, was still charged for the room. I notified them as soon as I could. I wish my account credited or will not book the hostel April 21st on my return trip. Simple request. Thank you, Richard Smith

  • It felt a little disorganized (they were overbooked and switched me twice but luckily it was early on), the wifi wasn't the best and the security into the rooms was terrible in terms of other guests as the passwords were simple to guess.

  • This was the BEST hostel I've been to, highly recommend! We were recommended by a friend. It was in an excellent location, right on the edge of French Quarter which is the only part we walked around for our 2 day visit in New Orleans. We felt safe walking to and from the hostel. The people here were amazing and so friendly. The hostel was so cute and nicely decorated. We loved the fruit cup and pancake breakfast. Also, excellent wifi which isnt always the case in hotels/hostels

  • Besides the good location, I have to say that I'm disappointed. Mostly because I expected a clean place to sleep. First thing I saw were hair on my bed, like nobody has never cleaned it up before. Then I had to ask for the new sheet, because I found dirt and more hair on it. The matress was uncomfortable, I could feel every spring pinching my back and hear every single move, either mine or others. I'm not sure if the bathroom was cleaned at all. The morning, afternoon, night - hair everywhere!
