New Orleans was awesome. Most of that awesomeness was thanks to India House. It's a big place, the staff are really friendly, they have loads of cheap frozen pre-made meals at the ready incase the hunger strikes you. There's a lovely lounge to chill-out and drink, chat and listen to music in near the front of the place. There's a... More

This is a friendly hostel on Canal street based about a 30 second walk from the nearest tram stop (from $1.25 to the city centre). The rooms generally have more people in them than most hostels, but most people are friendly and observe quiet hours, and private rooms are always available. The staff are mostly friendly and will help with... More

India House Hostel in New Orleans This year for Jazz Fest I stayed at the India House Hostel on South Lopez Street in mid-city. My whole experience there was superb. The hostel is spread over four buildings, and my dorm (6 bunkbeds) had air conditioning. They serve $5 breakfasts and dinners, and they have Wi-Fi, washers & driers, and even... More

I went with a theatre tour with a group of 11 of us all in one shared room. We were very impressed by the food available for breakfast, yes it's not a lot but it was cheap and handy. Everyone there was very welcoming and made for a memorable trip.

Just because this is a hostel doesn't mean that it should be a complete MESS, dirty and disorganized as HELL! They don't even have a system at the computer, upon check in they were drawing the rooms in a piece of paper with pencil and rubbing all the mistakes they did constantly. We had to wait for a room to... More

I spent two nights there with a former coworker. I will definitely recommend it to people looking for a nice budget accommodation. We enjoyed it. Our priority was to visit the French Quarter and the main assets of the city though. We chose it based on positive reviews on an other platform for hostels, for its good location--there was a...

Stayed there for 6 nights. Was pretty quiet and decent. It wasn't the closest to the Quarter, but this area was easily accessible for myself with Uber. The hostel was clean and I had a pleasant stay. Breakfast WAS NOT free. (You had to pay, which was a bit of a letdown) Other than that, a pretty decent place. And... More

We stayed in India house for a total of two weeks, between the 16 bed dorm and a private room (which was voodoo-inspired). In every way - price, location, atmosphere, staff - the hostel exceeded our expectations. The staff especially were really lovely and even showed us around the city one night. They serve an affordable breakfast and dinner, and... More

I stayed here with a few friends during the French Quarter festival. I have stayed here multiple times, in a private room as well as the dorm style with 8 other females. This place is such a good deal! There is a bus stop on the corner that you can hop on to get to the quarter. The staff is... More
