The hostel is great. Big diversity of people. You can meet people from everywhere. But if you are looking for a place more like a hotel, this is not your place. It seams that you are in a friend's house. They have dinner and breakfast every day. Prices go from 1 to 6 dollars. The only problem was that the... More

Check in was quick and staff were pleasant. Main hostel building was nice and had a decent atmosphere that one would assume is typical of New Orleans, rustic but welcoming. This however was not the case with the room we stayed in. The doors to get into the building, and the room, were both so filmsy that a frail child... More

When I booked this hostel (for what I found to be a very cheap price of $17/night) I was not expecting much. However, my first impression was not correct and I was pleasantly surprised from the moment I walked in. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. There is a huge area in the back to which you can’t get... More

At $17 a night for a shared room with 4 bunk beds, this hostel was very affordable and served our basic needs. The street car and major bus route are at the end of the block, so you can get downtown in about 15-20 minutes. There are several shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. Friendly staff are at the... More

Great price, we paid 17$ per night for a mixed dorm through Hostelworld. The place was bohemian decor, and the staff were all friendly enough. A bit on the run down side, and not spic and span clean. But for us that was just fine. Al the other visitors were friendly and there were lots of areas to hangout. The... More

This hostel is a great place to meet new friends! It's 2 minutes far from the street car. There is a pharmacy and a dollar shop 7 minutes walking. It's a great place to stay. Very colorful and cosy. Feels like home! The staff is great! If you're traveling solo, that's the perfect place for you!

Yo, this place rules. Best hostel in New Orleans! They offer breakfast every morning and usually dinner at night. A cute lil pool area to chill. Private rooms and plenty of different style dorm rooms to choose from! The staff is friendly and it's pretty clean for a hostel. Only a like 5-10 min street car ride to the quarter.... More

You can buy breakfast and dinner. Showers and toilets for days. Great company. The common areas are nice. THEY HAVE A POOL. Right by... More
