We stayed here for two nights. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the first thing they did after checking us in was to highlight us a map of places we should go, where's good for drinking/shopping/hanging out, etc. The rooms are all private, and they have closets, fridges, tvs, etc. the bathrooms are shared. the place itself is a...

pros: 1) cheap, competitively priced airport pickup, and 2) a functional shower 3) seemingly cheep nightly rate 4) good location cons: 1) bed bugs: if you aren't familiar with these, you should google them. These bugs were mentioned in another online review, which I ignored, and to this day deeply regret having done. We thought the bites we were getting... More

The staff were friendly. The facilities, despite being quite old were all functional. The huuuge problem here are bed bugs. I left with no fewer than 10 bites on me and the girl in the bunk above me got bitten aswell. I dont understand how they can operate with such a bad problem on their hands. NOT worth the risk...

After "an error" from the managers of the hostel, my friends and I couldn't get 3 beds (as booked weeks in advance) but only 1 double bed for 3!!! Our beds were "unfortunatly" taken by a group of boys already arrived at the hostel. After the lady "looked for the mysterious missing bed" I got offered to spend the night... More

We stayed for two nights at Flo and Joe's and it was such a great experience. The staff was extremely helpful with transportation at all times of the day/night, and gave us the local's guide on what to see and do in New Orleans. We truly had an amazing experience and we owe a lot of it to the staff,... More

We trusted that the... More

Another of many complaints about bedbugs for this hostel. They obviously do not care that they have an infestation. And I now have a bedbug problem in my own home and am having to pay the expensive fees to get rid of them. I could literally see the bugs crawling in the mattress of the bed above mine. It was...

Bed bugs bed bugs bed bugs bed bugs bed bugs. The management has done nothing about the infestation. They do not care. They will not refund your stay. If you go here and get bugs, you will bring them back to your home and have to pay for extermination. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.
