2 minuet walk from the tram that takes you into the French quarter but it's so dirty. The wall paper in our room was damp and pealing off! The sheets were dirty and you have to pay for a towel and breakfast on top of you nights stay

The service at the front desk is very long. Sometimes, there is nobody, and you can wait like 30 minutes for someone from the staff to get there. The breakfast start at 9 am, but you won't get anything before 10 am. The guy who do the breakfast was still drunk from the evening and smell like beers and sweat.... More

We had booked for 2 nights initially and our booked room was not available; after 40+ minutes in reception we were given another room, a free upgrade for the 1st night. Booking in is complex when it shouldn't be. However, once settled in it is clear that this place knows what's what! The rooms are good, bathrooms accessible and although... More

I was here at the Christmas time and it was one of the best experience I had in a hostel in USA. The hostel is outside of the hotel area but its an easy ride away and in a quiet beautiful area not far from the city park. The facilities are good in the hostel for the price of it... More

I have stayed at India House twice now. Once on my own back in 2012 and then back in 2014 I returned with two friends. It remains one of my favourite hostels, though would recommend accommodation in the main house if possible. On my second visit we had a private room in one of the outbuildings which had some cleanliness... More

I have mixed feelings. I did not spend too much time in the main house. I liked the art and uniqueness of the house I did stay in and the employees (who were from all over and very friendly!!). The bathrooms were cleaned religiously. The location wasn't exactly key, but if you take the trolley in, the French Quarter was... More

India House Hostel: On Canal St in Mid City. There is a street car on the corner of the st that will take you down to the FQ in 15-20 minutes. This hostel was by far my favorite of the three I stayed at for the great sense of community that we experienced there. We referred to it as a... More

Whether you'll like india house or not depends entirely on what type of thing you're looking for. If you're after somewhere with plenty of creature comforts where you can get a great nights sleep, this perhaps isn't the place for you. But if you're a pretty laid back traveller who's into meeting and interacting with lots of new people and... More

I stayed at India House Hostel for 3 nights with my boyfriend. We got a private room with two (bunk) beds. The hostel itself was very efficient. It was close to the e-2 bus stop from the airport and right across the street from the Canal Street streetcar line. Everyone I interacted with at the front desk was very nice.... More

We got a private room, the Mango Freeze, which true to its name was not heated. Unfortunately for us temperatures dipped below freezing during the second night and the room stayed that way. It would have been fine if the space heater provided any heat or if the hostel gave us something other than the threadbare blankets we had that... More
