  • 'Clean' sheets had hair on them. It was a very cold night and with the sheets not being clean and the very thin throw blanket they privide it was not enought. If you are staying long maybe pack an additional blanket. My room backed up to the courtyard where the picnic tables were and it was very loud until about midnight. I wouldnt recommend walking around solo at night if you are a girl, the area is a little rough. Over all, I got what I paid for.

  • it is not excellent compare with some other really good one,but i have nothing to complain about. It is a place you can know people and new friends. Bathroom could be better, but I believe if you told the staff they will clean it really soon.

  • Had a hard time trying to cancel first few days. Couldn't do it online without canceling my whole stay and the Mgr was pretty much MIA most of the time and supposedly he was the only one who could reserve a bed. Pretty stressful in the beginning. Lost online deposit also. Hostel Staff was Great and the Hostel was pretty clean, besides roaches in the Dec? The slamming doors downstairs need to be buffered. How hard would that be to do!! Really annoying when your trying to sleep.

  • Enjoyed my stay here. As a solo traveller it was a fantastic hostel to meet likeminded travellers. I would highly recommend this hostel for its price, location and atmosphere. I will be back for sure.

  • Come here if you want to have an experience that you won't forget, due to the people you'll meet and international atmosphere due to the travelers constantly coming and going. Stay way if you want luxury, but come on if you stand a little discomfort but want to experience some wonderful moments and meeting new people from all around the world. I have stayed here on three different occasions and every time there is someone new to talk to, to hang out with, and to meet. Highly recommend it!

  • If you're young and traveling to New Orleans, this is a great place. The building is old, but regularly cleaned. The staff was nice and helpful. You can just take a street car right into the French Quarter. Day passes are $3. Its less than one block from Canal St.

  • Good location near Canal St. streetcar, or just 1/2 hour walk to French Quarter. Quiet neighborhood but guests, many Australian & British, are quite loud into the night while mostly smoking and drinking outdoors. I stayed in 8-bed female dorm on 2nd floor which had only one bathroom (shower, toilet, sink) so it was usually occupied; another bathroom downstairs & then a few more outside. Sheets & pillow included, but $5 charge for towel. $5 deposit for room key, refunded at check-out.

  • The building is falling apart and some of the staff are quite rude, but the amazing atmosphere of this hostel completely makes up for it. It's easy to meet people, and I had so much fun there. Loved the cat! Would definitely stay again.
