Great location right by the trolley. Staff was just the right amount of friendly. Bartenders make a mean mocktail.
Staff was friendly. The hostel was clean and felt safe for a solo female traveler. Location was good for someone who wanted to walk around, but didn't want to be in the French Quarter. Building was older, fairly typical for NOLA, and a little cold on a chilly night. Mattress was thin. I was worried ...
Refreshing and relaxing
The staff was very nice, I lucked out that I was alone for both days I stayed. Very clean, and nice quiet location quick walk to bourbon street.
It was great
the good news: most of the staff is very friendly and helpful, good location, price is good if you book at the right time deducting 20% in rating for room door not locking properly which should never happen. This is a safety concern and should be addressed immediately. Also, the breakfast needs to ...
This is a great place. Atmosphere is eclectic. Staff members are friendly and helpful. I recommend this property. My stay was comfortable. The only thing that I would suggest is that the they turn the air conditioning cooler it was a bit warm other than that I was very happy with this hostel.

Travel is all about experiences, whether you’re trekking across the world or just miles away from home. And while you may think of backpacking students when cheap hostels come to mind, modern-day hostels appeal to a much more diverse group of people. Hostels are traditionally beloved as a great way to meet fellow travelers and as a more affordable option to hotels. They’re the perfect place to rest for the night and then get up and go on your next day of exploring New Orleans and beyond.
It’s customary for hostels to contain multiple bunk beds in a dorm-style room to be shared with friends (or strangers). So, can couples stay in hostels? The short answer is yes. Some of the best hostels in the world (and maybe even in New Orleans) are private room hostels that feature larger beds and more privacy. There are even bookable accommodations that offer family hostel rooms that provide even more space. Hostels are more commonly found internationally, but USA hostels are beginning to pop up around the country.
If secluded quarters and quiet accommodations are a priority to you during your travels, there are boutique and luxury hostels that offer upgraded private rooms, elevated décor, and higher end amenities. It’s possible to get the affordability and energy of a hostel with some elements of privacy that you’d usually only find by staying in a hotel.
