The location is perfect, very easy to get around ( Street car and/or bus). The staff are very friendly and helpful. However, I would not recommend the mix dorm for girls to stay, it was not very well kept and majority of the tenants are males. I did have a chance to have a peek at the girls dorm and... More

We booked a suite with private bath for 2 nights for a coffee roasting conference. Our choice raised some eyebrows but it was completely worth it. Perfect location, off-street parking and even at New Orleans standards the atmosphere is unique. Staff was swamped when we arrived but explained in detail when our room would be ready and gave suggestions for... More

l went on this trip as a spring break service project with my college and that is the only reason I completed my 6 day stay at this hostel. Let me start, we arrived and were told that our rooms weren't ready but they could keep our bags for us. We were told to wait 7 hours to check back... More

I can not say enough about certain members of the staff and the owner. I have stayed here many times and while it is "rustic", it serves its purpose well. Considering they operate with very little capitol it's amazing what they accomplish. The dorms were completely renovated which was a great surprise. I am sure they will get to updating... More

Great location, good rooms, great price. Very nice people- this is the largest hostel I've ever been in and my only suggestion is to have a larger staff, especially when anticipating a lot of travelers.

I stayed in the 16 bed, mixed dorm room at St. Vincent's Guest House, and if I ever go back to New Orleans I will most definitely stay there again! It was a little far by foot, but still a walking distance from Bourbon Street and the French quarter, and a wonderful experience. The first night, I can't lie, I... More

I stayed there for a week and I enjoyed my time there. The stuff is really nice and so is the owner. I met a lot of international travellers so I was never alone visiting the city. The hotel by itself is clean and has everything you need, including a nice coffee house right infront of the hotel.

I usually do not write reviews but I felt compelled to warn others. When I came ro check in I waited on a cold, mildew smelling front room where someone was wrapped in covers with an oxygen machine onvthe main sofa. The lights in the front are kept off during the day so it is cold and dark. When I... More

These older reviews are extremely unfair. St. Vincent Guest House is great for the price! I stayed for three nights and enjoyed it very much. It is important to know that this is more of a "hostel" rather than a 4 star hotel (With such cheap prices I would have assumed most people knew that). The staff was friendly and... More

Don't expect the Ritz because you're not paying for it. My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room which was pretty large with a private bathroom. Hotel staff were really helpful when I had a moment of crisis. The location is sweet - plenty of dive bars and dining and it's not far from the French quarter (10 min... More
