"If you have come to New Orleans for it's bawdy reputation this bohemian haunt is party central."

CLOSEST hostel to Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest, City Park, the Museum and The cemeteries, all within easy walking distance. We are also on the CANAL streetcar line, just minutes to the French Quarter.

We offer discounted swamp , city, cemetery and plantation tours. We are also on the Endymion parade route which is the BIGGEST and BEST parade at Mardi Gras.

INDIA HOUSE HOSTEL has been the place to stay for backpackers in New Orleans for over 18 years, and still is.

We have a STAGE where we have BAND nights, open mike nights and MOVIES on the BIG SCREEN. We also have SWIMMING POOL PARTIES, crawfish boils, cookouts and bbq's.

If you want to stay at the BEST hostel in New Orleans, BOOK early, especially for major events. We look forward to making your stay in The Big Easy memorable.

We provide dorms (mixed and single sex) and private rooms, AND NOW OUR NEW PRIVATE ROOMS WITH EN SUITE BATH for up to 4 people. All en suite rooms are set up for double (1 double bed) as well as twin (separate beds) occupancy !

ALSO spacious comfortable common rooms with relaxing sofas and flat screen t.v with DVD's and games, and a fully equipped kitchen with a HUGE courtyard, BBQ area and SWIMMING POOL, provide a great place to chill in N'awlins before heading out for a FUN night. The atmosphere is second to none.

The hostel is Internationally owned and European managed with a casual atmosphere and located at the corner of 3200 Canal St. and South Lopez St., in the Mid-City area of New Orleans.

India House has NO curfew or lock-out period. Kitchen, common rooms and all facilities are available 24hrs a day. In addition we are walking distance to local pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and all amenities a traveler would need. Or just enjoy a relaxing time in our rear courtyard sipping a cold beer with fellow travelers from around the globe. INDIA HOUSE HOSTEL is the perfect hostel for individuals or groups to meet like minded people.

UPCOMING EVENTS :

Thanks Giving, Christmas and New Years are always a great party here in New Orleans.

We cook a great meal for all our guests and make India House your home away from home !!

While most party-hard backpackers in Europe stick to the big cities like Paris, London and Barcelona, you might end up cutting your nights (or even your trip) short. These cities come at a cost and just one cocktail can run upwards of $15. Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
