I checked into this place without having done much research. Arrived straight from the airport and immediately got terrible vibes from the building (falling apart) and locale - which seemed like the wrong area to start off a visit in NOLA with no local knowledge.
The man at the desk was creepy and unhelpful. I wandered past a dozen men of varying ages and levels of intoxication. Some of the men were downright lewd in their attentions and comments towards me. There was not a woman to be seen. I felt like I was not safe. The dorm I was shown was empty and looked like a haunted hospital ward. The shared facilities were clean enough but uninviting.
I ended up not staying because I felt so uncomfortable. Hopefully it has improved since my experience.
