I stayed in the India House Hostel in August for the last leg of my road trip through the US. Amazing experience would be an understatement. It is an excellent place to make new friends and meet fellow travellers. There is plenty of space to socialize. Spent a lot of time in the pool, there was a comedy night organized... More

I've stayed in hostels all over the world and this is now one of my absolute favorites. My friend and I got our own 2-person room with bathroom and were placed in the newest building they have (there are a few different buildings that share a courtyard and common spaces.) The beds were pretty decent for bunk beds, with clean... More

Spent 10 days in NOLA this year. Was travelling with 2 other friends. Got recommended India House by some people we met in Miami. First of all, the staff, they are great. Friendly, give great advice and always seem to go out the way to help you. The atmosphere in the hostel is great, with people of all ages staying... More

India house is a perfect reflection of New Orleans, relaxed, liberal, fun and bursting with character. Loved it here, felt so relaxed and comfortable at all times. All facilities were clean and beds comfy, loved the smoothies and pancakes that could be purchased at breakfast time. Brilliant place to stay with welcoming staff and friendly guests.

Affordable, friendly, safe, close to the trolly that takes you right to Bourbon Street, cool pool, you can buy breakfast and dinner there, the travelers and foreigners you meet there are awesome and very friendly, with great stories to tell! Stayed 2 nights, great experience.

We stayed here for a weekend before we went on a 5 day cruise to Mexico. Basically we were just looking for a cheap place to sleep while we ate (not drank) our way through New Orleans. We booked a private room with a private bathroom because I can't fathom sleeping/using the facilities next to strangers. What we got was... More

Staying at the India House was a delight. It offers a variety of rooms and experiences from private bath/bed combos to very social dorm rooms with bunk-beds. My sweet heart and I had the pleasure of experiencing a lively pool, kitchen and common areas, then retreating to our much quieter (and air conditioned) private room. Certainly not for the high...

I actually stayed in India House in 2012 with my sister, it was Halloween and it was packed with cool funny people. It is not exactly the most clean place I have stayed but I really didn't care as we were having such a great time. Great place to meet people because of their much inviting courtyard and home cooked... More

Good, social atmosphere, location great right across the road from the streetcar. Had a swimming pool although maintenance was being done while we were there (told us it would be a day and we were there 5 days, still not finished or usable). Provide meals for very cheap $6 every night. Great social areas outside and inside. The hostel was... More

If you don't mind the fact that this hostel is very mismatched, with a run-down feel and generally lacking in security (the rooms are safe), then this is the place for you. Due to this, India House is very welcoming and relaxed, with a lot of hippy-type people there. Pros: Atmosphere, good kitchen, beer fridge, POOL, air con in rooms,... More
