I have stayed at India House twice now. Once on my own back in 2012 and then back in 2014 I returned with two friends. It remains one of my favourite hostels, though would recommend accommodation in the main house if possible. On my second visit we had a private room in one of the outbuildings which had some cleanliness... More

I have mixed feelings. I did not spend too much time in the main house. I liked the art and uniqueness of the house I did stay in and the employees (who were from all over and very friendly!!). The bathrooms were cleaned religiously. The location wasn't exactly key, but if you take the trolley in, the French Quarter was... More

India House Hostel: On Canal St in Mid City. There is a street car on the corner of the st that will take you down to the FQ in 15-20 minutes. This hostel was by far my favorite of the three I stayed at for the great sense of community that we experienced there. We referred to it as a... More

Whether you'll like india house or not depends entirely on what type of thing you're looking for. If you're after somewhere with plenty of creature comforts where you can get a great nights sleep, this perhaps isn't the place for you. But if you're a pretty laid back traveller who's into meeting and interacting with lots of new people and... More

I stayed at India House Hostel for 3 nights with my boyfriend. We got a private room with two (bunk) beds. The hostel itself was very efficient. It was close to the e-2 bus stop from the airport and right across the street from the Canal Street streetcar line. Everyone I interacted with at the front desk was very nice.... More

We got a private room, the Mango Freeze, which true to its name was not heated. Unfortunately for us temperatures dipped below freezing during the second night and the room stayed that way. It would have been fine if the space heater provided any heat or if the hostel gave us something other than the threadbare blankets we had that... More

Great place and had a brilliant time until I found that my passport had gone missing from the front office. They provided no explanation and have still not got back to me. I'm stuck in the states and am going to have to pay in excess of 500 dollars for a replacement. Don't give your passport to them. The don't... More

The actual hostel is really awesome. Very unique and cool decor, sweet outdoor hangout area and the guy who cooked our breakfast was the man. Most of the other staff was mostly pretty rude, just didn't go with the rest of the hostels feel

The hostel was very clean and comfortable, and it was in a pretty goòd location, the Internet connection was also very good. There was also a great social atmosphere. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, however one lady was a bit rude and seemed to make a moutain out of a molehill, she wasn't very approachable. However... More

If you're use to hotels and such fancy things then stay away, we booked a private room (very small with a padlock on a rustic door). The thing about this place is you will hardly spend time in your room! This place is fantastic for making friends and is so community oriented! They can organise tours, they have a daily... More
