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

From the outside it looks like the other houses on the road but once inside you realise how large of a hostel it is. The atmosphere is great and it has been decorately with a cute artistic kitch feel. Whilst its a bit rough around the edges this somehow adds to the feel of the place. It is clear the... More

The hostel is in a great location, very close to the streetcar which we used every day to get to the French quarter, the river and other parts of the city. Only $3 for a day pass which is great value. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. It was nice to meet a Kiwi girl who we could... More

It's a cheap hostel so you get what you pay for I suppose. The room we had was an old private room. The sheets were clean and the bed was comfortable. It had an air conditioner which was good given the heat. It also had a bath but the tap didn't work. The floor was uneven and cracked and the... More

This is the kind of place that makes you wonder if an insect is going to burrow in your ear in the middle of the night, or if you're going to get some kind of skin infection from siting on the sofa. This hostel looks like some junkie den: filthy, dilapidated, flies, etc. The bathroom was far worse than most... More

I booked this hostel because the prices in French Quarter were way too high and this hostel was near the Quarter, with a good tram link connection, but prices digestable. I stayed in a private room and overall i liked this hostel, even though it had faults too. I loved the design and Feng Shui in common areas - in... More

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
