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

Very nice hostel. very huge also. I had do deal with Andrew which is very helpful, and sweet. Nice swimming pool, nice bar, nice everything. But the dorms... The "Lincoln" dorm (the one i stayed in) has 20 beds. It is quite noisy, and the door makes a lot of noise. I wouldn't recommend this dorm... They may have smallers...... More

India House was a wonderful place to stay in New Orleans for people in their 20s and 30s or any one without children. Although it seems a bit old it still has that traditional Deep South vibe to it, it is like staying at a really trendy bar with a court yard. It really is a fantastic place with, what... More

The most communal hostel I've stayed at. Relatively respectful 'party hours'. Easily connected to buses and streetcars. You'll meet a variety of fellow hostellers. They regularly recommend places to go and eat. Breakfast and dinner are available at a reasonable cost. Tastes decent. Yoga place very close. Check out Chickie Wah Wah... Amazing food and good atmosphere. Whole Foods 15... More

The hostel has a good atmosphere, and is much larger than you would first think. Generally it was all very comfortable, although the mattresses weren't very thick and there was a very noise damp protector on it it was comfortable enough. Not quite close enough to walk in to the center, but still a good location. All the staff were... More
