Well, staying at hostels is always a hit or miss kind of thing. Fortunately for me, I've always had pretty good experiences. India House Hostel was pretty ick for me though. We stayed in one of the private rooms, NOT ensuite. The room was large and roomy with a couple of nice windows and pretty cool hardwood floors. The airconditioner... More

The India House has something going on. Though the staff isn't the most friendly people they have achieved a very good balance in the energy of the place. Our private room was shy but met the expectations. Got AC to bear NOLA's intense heat and humidity. Definetely the best part of our stay was we got the chance to meet... More

The India House Hostel was easy to find and located quite near the French Quarter. We stayed in a 12-bed dorm room, which was simple but clean. We were impressed with the size of the hostel, as well as the large kitchen and backyard venue. My only complaint was that, although the female staff was friendly and helpful, my friend... More

The amenities in the hostel are basic but adequate; there not dirty but I think you'll be struggling to make them sparkling. I've stayed a few times and always managed to get hot water also which in a hostel is pretty decent at 12pm. The hostel is in a fantastic location; just off a street car. The only thing I... More

We stayed there for a few nights in a private room. The hostel is a cool place to stay with an awesome atmosphere. The food was tasty and cheap, and the pool area was a great place to chill. It was very warm when we were there and unfortunately our air con didn't work. The staff were happy to find... More

India house is a very friendly place to stay. You will meet really nice people from all around the world. The house is charming and effort are made to repair the building. You can spend the whole day outside, around the pool or at the picnic tables. Homemade food is available every day which is really convenient and help you... More

This is the place to stay when visiting New Orleans. You will be greeted by friendly staff members, meet nice people, and the hostel is quite close to the city center. At the reception you will get all the necessary information to enjoy your stay in NOLA, and the street car brings you directly to the heart of this beautiful... More

Loved the place! Easy to get in touch with people and find some way to explore and party and enjoy the city New Orleans. In general there are enough types of people come here to find your own type :D. Furthermore it is a hostel as it supposed to be: not too clean, cheapish and food. The cook is doing... More

You will have an amazing experience here if you are a solo traveler. The common areas are open and easy to talk to other people. The pool really helps to cool off from the heat and humidity. People tend to stay up late and converse in the outdoor area. The dorm rooms are on the other side of the common... More

Great location right near bourbon street and the metro. Lovely outside seating area and brilliant pool. Plenty of bathrooms, showers and good laundry facilities. The availability of homemade frozen meals to heat up 24/7 is perfect after a big New Orleans night out - and the food is so tasty. Stayed in a dorm of 12 and have no complaints.... More
