Laissez les bon temps rouler (let the good times role)

“If you have come to New Orleans for it's bawdy reputation this bohemian haunt is party central.”

CLOSEST hostel to Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest, City Park, the Museum and The cemeteries, all within easy walking distance. We are also on the CANAL streetcar line, just minutes to the French Quarter.

We offer discounted swamp , city, cemetery and plantation tours. We are also on the Endymion parade route which is the BIGGEST and BEST parade at Mardi Gras.

INDIA HOUSE HOSTEL has been the place to stay for backpackers in New Orleans for over 18 years, and still is.

We have a STAGE where we have BAND nights, open mike nights and MOVIES on the BIG SCREEN. We also have SWIMMING POOL PARTIES, crawfish boils, cookouts and bbq’s.

If you want to stay at the BEST hostel in New Orleans, BOOK early, especially for major events. We look forward to making your stay in The Big Easy memorable.

We provide dorms (mixed and single sex) and private rooms, AND NOW OUR NEW PRIVATE ROOMS WITH EN SUITE BATH for up to 4 people. All en suite rooms are set up for double (1 double bed) as well as twin (separate beds) occupancy !

ALSO spacious comfortable common rooms with relaxing sofas and flat screen t.v with DVD’s and games, and a fully equipped kitchen with a HUGE courtyard, BBQ area and SWIMMING POOL, provide a great place to chill in N'awlins before heading out for a FUN night. The atmosphere is second to none.

The hostel is Internationally owned and European managed with a casual atmosphere and located at the corner of 3200 Canal St. and South Lopez St., in the Mid-City area of New Orleans.
