  • This place seems to have got a lot of bad press in the reviews. I was pleasently surprised. I booked a private room. The place is old but clean and reasonably well maintained. It's not the Hilton - but what do you expect at these rates in a fashionable neighbourhood a short ride in a streetcar to the French Quarter. I had off-street parking for my rented car, fridge, microwave, TV, dining setting and a sofa. The staff are fine, they're not in-your-face cheerful but they're approachable.

  • Dana, Desk Clerk, was cordial, respectful & accommodating.The hostel has authentic N/O appeal with high ceilings, exposed brick walls, & lush grassy courtyard w/seating & green foliage everywhere. A party of 4 we paid $37.50 ea for a clean bed, bathroom & a/c. Within a 3 block area we had a reasonably priced corner supermarket, local bar with outside seating, great restaurants surrounded by historical architecture & the St. Charles street cars. Blending in with the locals couldn't be cheaper.

  • I did not stay at the Marquette House in New Orleans because of so many bad reviews. Cancelled last minute and they charged me full stays. Its ok as long as I did not get a disease.

  • My stay here at the Marquette House was great. I do not have any experience with hostels prior to my stay at this one but I must say that you when you stay here, you certainly get what you pay for.

  • A 2 night stay at Marquette House (actually the brick building across the road from the main house) was pleasant in a 6 bed unit with only two of us there. Very convenient for the trolly and downtown NOLA. Free parking next to house. Nice view on the 2nd floor to a courtyard with sitting area. Security note - door lock was only slightly usable - very loose.

  • It was really dirty and the new sheets provided to us were soiled and smelt stale, night time involved hunting roaches. Air conditioning was not functioning but it was not fixed in the 14-bed all-female dorm and the air was just stale since there wasn't any ventilation. Basically no security at all since males can come and go as they please in the all-female dorm too so if you don't like your dorm mate making love beside you or above or below you, this is not the place for you.

  • Very funky place. Seedy as can be. Friendly people, staff and guests. I have some mobility and health issues; and they were very helpful. I loved it. Gigantic private room in a historic building, with fridge and microwave. Have them make sure there are batteries in the TV zapper. Just a block off the St. Charles streetcar line. Good breakfast place (The Trolley Stop) about two blocks away on St. Charles. Other interesting restaurants nearby.
