  • Really bad location, bad neighborhood, unpleasant staff. I was in a bind and needed a place, but ended up staying with friends instead of being here for even two nights because I was terrified of it. I've been in all manner of hostels but this was by far the worst experience I've had. There were cockroaches everywhere.

  • This hostel would not have been too bad for the value, except it was infested with bedbugs. Otherwise the room was pretty nice.

  • Not the worst hostel in the world, it was clean but the actual facilities and appliances were poor, most of the plug sockets didn't work, the two side lights didn't actually plug into the wall, no cutlery or plates etc, there was a very slow kettle and toaster and fridge/freezer. It was okay of you just want somewhere to sleep but it didn't have the vibe most other hostels do, no sense of community etc however close to the at Charles cart line which was useful and cheep.

  • This is a place of filth. I've got bitten by BEDBUGS and did not feel comfortable or safe at any time. My bed was standing on bricks, everything is old, broken and filthy. Nothing will make me go back to this place.

  • A total Goldilocks experience. I came back from an evening of partying at the French Quarter, and someone was sleeping in my bed. I will never stay at a hostel again.

  • Was apprehensive after reading preview reviews and glad to see WAY over exaggerated! The staff here were really nice, the buildings are a bit run down (and not the cleanest) but I met nice people. The location is good and although the security was not fab (doors didn't lock properly) I felt safe during my whole visit. Don't be put off, as let's face it, it's a hostel, not a five star hotel, but it's good value for money. Beware though as the wifi is almost non-existent.
