I went with my boyfriend and we stayed in one of the Private Rooms. The price was awesome, and it was really nice to have a pool at our disposal. We also really loved the sleepy fat cat that lives in the main house at the hostel. The room itself was definitely bare bones. Bed, pillows, covers, no soap or... More

I am a little confused when writing about India House. The hostel has a great atmosphere. One of the best I have ever stayed in. The location is super convenient - right next to Canal Street. The streetcar station is ~1 min walk away and it takes ~15-20 mins to get to Bourbon Street. The super cheap breakfast in the... More

Was put off at first by negative comments on hostelworld, but decided to try it anyway because a dormbed was only $20....but what a surprise: the hostel was brilliant! Beautiful, colourful rooms, good beds, amazing hard wood patio with roof and icing on the cake: a swimming pool!! every evening $5 home cooked Southern style dishes and a 2 minute... More

Great atmosphere, great staff! Honestly the best hostel ive ever stayed in. If you're looking for a place to really experience NOLA then look no further. I was there for the opening of Mardi Gras and it was fantastic. As a solo traveller you'll meet some amazing people. A short tram ride from the French quarter with pharmacies nearby. Staff... More

Went here with my wife and had an absolute blast. It is so easy to meet people here. The place is totally set up for meeting others. It is conveniently located next to the streetcar but it can take about 20min to get to the French Quarter. The place could definitely be cleaner but it's not the worst I've seen.... More

The hostel itself is old and rundown but I loved the feeling that that gave to the place! It has an old-school, old-worldy, southern kinda charm to it and as a result felt nice and homely. The communal lounge area was chilled and relaxed and the area out the back served super cheap, delicious dinners and meant that you could... More

I stayed here for two nights with my adult son while when we came to the Satchmo music festival in August. The reviews I read were mixed but we decided to come see for ourselves since the location is only 1 block from the Canal St. streetcar. Pluses include a small pool with deck chairs around it, ability to buy... More

This hostel is vile. I wouldn't stop here again. The owner lets people live in the hostel, which really ruins the whole point of a hostel. you had people thinking they owned the place and you! The rooms are stuffy and hot. Two washrooms in the entire hostel. I waited an hour to go for a wee!!! Its crazy. Im... More

First of all, you need to go into this expecting a HOSTEL experience. Not a nice hotel or a bed and breakfast. This is a hostel, it's cheap, and you get what you pay for. That being said - we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at India House again. It's just 1 block from the street car line... More

There is a fine line between funky and filthy and this place has crossed it. Mold in the room. Disgusting kitchen. Dirty sheets and blankets. Don't stay here if you can avoid it. Needs a health inspection!
