“Good and reasonable accommodations for volunteer group”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

We stayed here as part of a large volunteer group on a service project and had a very good experience. Although the rooms and overall accommodations were spartan, they were clean and functional. The few small issues that we had were dealt with quickly by the management. I recommend that large groups renting a private kitchen/meeting area as this will facilitate breakfast or other meals, meetings, and other gatherings. The Garden District location (one block from the St. Charles streetcar line) was convenient for our work and getting to things to do at night. Overall, a very good and reasonably-priced experience.

Don't go there! We were attracted for the price (20 $ for Nola is quite cheap) but is not worth. It's dirty, the staff is unkind, the place is creepy and not so close to the center! Really bad experience, the rooms are full of dead cockroches, and we had the feeling that there are Bed bugs too.

This is a very nicely located and fairly hospitable hostel, but "filthy" is not an exageration.
They are loose with the rules (fine with me! Lots of fun was had drinkin' it up on the large patio), but security could be a concern for some people.
I would stay again, since the price is right (especially when there is a fest going on and hotel costs get outragous) and I spend precious little time actually trying to sleep when I'm in this city. Anyone who is used to hotel level diggs and normal HI hostels, should probably not go for this one though, unless it's a last resort. Just sayin'!

Checked into Marquette house and checked straight back out again that evening! Cheap? Yes very! Clean? Not at all!!!!! When we went into our private room we straight away wanted to leave! First off the room had a horrible smell to it and was very unclean! The bin in the bathroom had somebody elses hair in it! We then had a quick nap and got bitten by bed bugs! Found some later in one of our handbags! The sorrounding area is also a little iffy! Only one street from the hood apparently as the guy told us. Most of the staff are very helpful but the places its self is horrible. We decided that we wanted to leave after leaving to go out in the evening. As two girls we did not feel safe walking around the area let alone coming back that night! The private rooms are seperate from the main building, across the road. We were put into a room away from the main building and nobody was in the rooms around. We also did not feel that the rooms were 100% secure. In the end we ended up paying to stay in a hotel in centre of town, we did not care how much extra it was we just wanted to get out!!!!!!!!!!!! Never agin!!!!!!!!

My friends and I stayed here and thought the hostel was great. Staff were friendly and knowledgable about the area. Hostel was clean and in a safe area.
We will be back this way in September and definately will stay here.

We booked to stay here for a week, as soon as we entered the female dorm it was clearly filthy. Having had bad experiences with bed bugs in san francisco (and managing to rid ourselves of the little b******s) we were keen to check out the beds closely. Close inspection was not required, as soon as we moved one of the mattresses aside three bed bugs were nestled in the woodwork directly infront of us, the place must be infested.

A woman living in the dorm also warned us that it was vital that we close the door properly at night as there is a rapist in the area, which was slightly daunting. The men that we met from the male dorm that were hanging around outisde the front of the hostel had tried to follow us into our room, they were very creepy.

Sad to read the old reviews, sounds like it has gone VERY down-hill in recent years. We didn't end up staying at all because of the bed bugs.
