Great atmosphere, great staff! Honestly the best hostel ive ever stayed in. If you're looking for a place to really experience NOLA then look no further. I was there for the opening of Mardi Gras and it was fantastic. As a solo traveller you'll meet some amazing people. A short tram ride from the French quarter with pharmacies nearby. Staff... More

Went here with my wife and had an absolute blast. It is so easy to meet people here. The place is totally set up for meeting others. It is conveniently located next to the streetcar but it can take about 20min to get to the French Quarter. The place could definitely be cleaner but it's not the worst I've seen.... More

The hostel itself is old and rundown but I loved the feeling that that gave to the place! It has an old-school, old-worldy, southern kinda charm to it and as a result felt nice and homely. The communal lounge area was chilled and relaxed and the area out the back served super cheap, delicious dinners and meant that you could... More

I stayed here for two nights with my adult son while when we came to the Satchmo music festival in August. The reviews I read were mixed but we decided to come see for ourselves since the location is only 1 block from the Canal St. streetcar. Pluses include a small pool with deck chairs around it, ability to buy... More

This hostel is vile. I wouldn't stop here again. The owner lets people live in the hostel, which really ruins the whole point of a hostel. you had people thinking they owned the place and you! The rooms are stuffy and hot. Two washrooms in the entire hostel. I waited an hour to go for a wee!!! Its crazy. Im... More

First of all, you need to go into this expecting a HOSTEL experience. Not a nice hotel or a bed and breakfast. This is a hostel, it's cheap, and you get what you pay for. That being said - we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at India House again. It's just 1 block from the street car line... More

There is a fine line between funky and filthy and this place has crossed it. Mold in the room. Disgusting kitchen. Dirty sheets and blankets. Don't stay here if you can avoid it. Needs a health inspection!

We stayed in a private ensuite room - the dorms looked kinda gross and full of the typical hostel caricatures. Evidently a party hostel but was quiet enough to sleep at night. Super close to the Canal st tram and nice to explore non-tourist neighbourhood. Pool is a fantastic addition! The breakfast grill was very affordable and handy. If you're... More

It felt like staying over at a friends house! It was very laid back and welcoming. But definitely expect what you pay for! It was a good price for the location and social environment, but it's not a 5 star hotel so don't expect celebrity treatment or Mariah Carey stanards. Some issues did arise, like they forgot to give us... More

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
