I stayed in a private room with shared bathroom for 3 nights in August. The room itself was okay containing just a pretty uncomfortable bed and a table, but had good air conditioning and was all I really needed for the time I was there. Its the communal areas are what make this hostel so great and unique! In the... More

The place is simple, but very good considering the price we paid. People on the front desk were always very kind and helpful. The hostel offers lots of services, as laundry, kitchen, swimming pool, air conditioner (only in rooms and living room) and wifi, as examples.

Hostel is a great place to stay especially for the price, we stayed in a private room with an en suite. Beds were a little uncomfortable but for a hostel they were fine. Only really annoyance was that some guests got beer in the pool and the hostel claimed they were cleaning it for days on end meaning it was... More

At the India House Hostel you can chose to have shared or private accomodations.(Rooms/Baths) It is located close to the street car line that can bring you right into Canal Street in the French Quarter. The staff and very friendly and helpful. The drawback is that the room is bare bones although you have access to wifi. You will have... More

Stayed here recently and I would not recommend it at all. The staff are lovely people, and it is very close to the street car which is super convenient, sadly that's where the good points end. We stayed in a dorm and it was dirty. The floor was gritty and sticky, the rooms was super hot also. The showers had... More

India house was one of the most unique places I have ever stayed. The staff were nice and they severed breakfast and dinner for cheap which was great, also breakfast is served up until 1pm which was perfect since most people staying will spend there nights on bourbon street. The pool was lovely and was open 12 hours a day... More

We got a private female dorm wince there were three of us. It was good and simple! Our A/C was really loud and there was a dead roach in the light fixture-but we never saw any other bugs. The hostel was really interesting and cool. We chatted with a few others pretty late at night. Also there's an alligator time... More

With a late check in time this place was first in our stay list. Arrived at 2am surprisingly we weren't the only ones at this time. Our room was in the house beside the reception house which worked in our favour as it was away from the noise. Clean room with showers and toilets close by. Electricity in the room... More
