Conveniently located and well staffed, Atlas House is tucked in Lower Garden District, a couple blocks away from the streetcar and a ten to fifteen minute walk to downtown. Parking is free, the neighborhood is safe, and amenities include lockers, a fully operable kitchen (free breakfast), and weekly events for those looking to be social. Locks and towels are available...

The main common area is an outdoor courtyard, which was unavailable during my stay due to rainy weather. The kitchen and lobby aren't very relaxing spaces. The beds aren't very comfortable, but a night in a shared dorm is affordable for those on a budget. Pancakes for breakfast. Not a long walk to shop and restaurants on Magazine st., the...

If there really was an age restriction as the previous reviewer noted, I didn't spot it. What should be noted is that the reception closes at 10 p.m. and doesn't open till 8 a.m., so you could have trouble arriving late or having an early breakfast. Access is via an unpromising series of freeways and underpasses but the hostel lies...

The hostel had a convenient location on Magazine Street, within walking distance of popular night spots and the historical St. Charles streetcar line. There was plenty of free street parking available and I never had a problem. I stayed in a dorm room, which was another house on the backside of the property. The bunk beds were a little creaky...

My stay at Atlas House was great from the start. I arrived at 7am after a very long bus journey so let myself in and as soon as a receptionist arrived she let me have a shower and then made me pancakes! Breakfast is included (pancakes every day), you are able to wash your clothes at the hostel for $5,...

This ranks in the best hostels I have ever stayed at. EXTREMELY FRIENDLY STAFF WHO TOOK US OUT TILL VERY LATE AT NIGHT! It was very easy to meet other travelers. I met people from Korea, Russia, England, Scotland, Ireland, Florida and California at this hostel. VERY CLEAN AND SUPER NICE! I was shocked by how awesome this hostel was.

Stayed a a few days, and was there for a pub crawl. It's a friendly atmosphere, not too big for a hostel. Easy to meet fellow travellers and get around. Lower GArdens is beautiful, and the tram towards the French Quarter right there. Highly recommend!

I love staying at Atlas house in New Orleans because it reminds me of traveling in Europe. I love the close feel that the people staying there have. It is very close to the city and easy to jump on the trolley. Thank you for a wonderful weekend! You'll love it!

The walls are paper thin and you hear everything around you!! Every time the person in the next room rolled over it woke me up. It's also not in the best neighborhood and parking can be tricky because it's all side street parking. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
