It's not exquisite, but it's not terrible. The building is just really old, like most of the city. There are stains on the linens that indicate bedbugs may have once lived here, which was kind of creepy, but there absolutely no signs of bedbugs currently (10/2013), and I checked for them several times after reading previous reviews. Despite stains, the provided linens are clean. The female dorms are clean overall, though I cannot speak to the male dorms. As a female, I never felt unsafe here, but I was traveling with 3 men. I might not have felt as safe traveling solo.
I only stayed 1 night, so I had a limited experience of the place.
Location is great - right next to the St. Charles street car line, which takes you right to the corner of Bourbon St. and Canal St. downtown for only $1.25.
