  • This hostel is amazing. It's a kind of far from French Quarter but there is a public transportation to there that is so close to the hostel. People there are the best!! They are very friendly and simple. I would back there for sure. I traveled by myself to there and I could find great friends to hang out with. I love it.

  • I stayed in a private room the first 4 nights of my trip, which was great for the price - very clean bathroom, blankets provided. However, I stayed in the dorm the last 3 nights and they were grungy - lightbulbs burned out, no blankets, dirty dining area. This hostel would be best for younger/budget travelers looking for a social/party atmosphere and don't mind the grunginess. Having had my fill of this on previous trips though I wished I'd spent a few bucks more and went somewhere cleaner.

  • Such an amazing place to be! I really loved the place. The kitchen is very good, the staff is very polite and it is easy to go anywhere because it is close to the streetcars.

  • Absolutely phenomenal. We met a ton of great people and it was really close to the French Quarter for only 100 a night for 2 in a private room during Mardi Gras. I would recommend this to everyone.

  • Second time staying, enjoyed it. Good location other than being a little out of the way. Liked the unique and laid back feel of the place. The only real down side I had was the showers didn't have hot water in the dorm the first 2 nights and we had an issue about the deposit. Either the girl at the desk honestly forgot to give us $5 change back from our deposits or she did and we somehow forgot even through we both clearly remember giving her $10 each. Asked for video to clarify, waiting...

  • Excellent location, trolley stop is 3 min from hostel's door. Apreciated clean bathroom in our room. Free cofee, breakfast and lunch for money. Cozy shared space, swimming pool. We left our food in shared fridge and had nothing to complain. It's mostly a student's place.

  • THE Hostel to stay at in New Orleans. From the moment you step foot in the front door you realise how much character and history the place has. The staff are friendly and super helpful. The meals are value for money and taste amazing. The common areas are great for sitting around and meeting new people. Do yourself a favour and don't look any further for accommodation!
