"Awesome atmosphere. They cook food each night which you can purchase very cheaply and it's delicious! The beds are comfy enough, they have a pool, lots of cooking and food storage areas and fridges for beer and drinks.…"

Liked: It was incredibly close to the trolly car (you can see the stop from the front..), a very pleasant surprise how easy it was for me to get to the House of Blues (I figured I'd have to drive). Very friendly staff.

Disliked: The lockers weren't in my dorm room, they were outside of it.

Liked: One of the best hostels i have stayed in (now done about 25). The peopel there were great. The hostel staff were good and the chef ( a liverpudlian) was excellent. Best place to stay in America!! They accidently over charged me by a dollar and the receptionist insisted she would buy me a beer as an apology.

Disliked: Some staff were not too great. A group of us got threatened to be thrown out. Admittedly it was 5am and we were still drinking but he didnt give us a waring or tell us we were disturbing anyone

Liked: The location of the hostel to the cable car system that takes you right into the heart of the the French Quarter is fantastic. It is literally across the street from the tram stop and the tram comes by frequently. The hostel has a lot of charm and seems like it would be a great place to meet other travellers. Free wifi is nice.

Disliked: I found the staff and their helpfulness to be quite poor. They never really seemed to know what was going on or their availability of the place. When we first checked in the girl told us they had overbooked and even though we booked a dorm room that we were both supposed to be in, we were split up into 2 diff rooms. I also heard another guest enquire about staying an additonal night at the hostel and wanted to know if they had any availabiltiy. The girl said she didn't know and to check back the next day!!! Are you kidding me? How do you not know if you have beds available at your hostel? Very poorly ran.

Liked: The kitchen being open 24hrs since a lot of places close down their kitchen at some point in the night.

Disliked: In one of their showers (1st fl) there is a very high huge window with no sort of curtain. When you shower you can actually be seen showing by neighbors on the 2nd floor. Creepy/not acctable. It was very overpriced and dirty. By European hostel standards a dorm room is probably worth $11 and then maybe the torn plastic mattresses, the toilets and showers outside, the cat hair floating all over the place might be acceptable.

Liked: The common areas have a fun bohemian atmosphere.

Disliked: Our private room was terrible. Did not have a real door, but instead, two sheets of plywood which could be fastened by a hook. Walls were essentially paper, onto a noisy courtyard. Sheets were definitely not clean.

Disliked: If you don't like it alternative (which may include sleeping in a tiny barn, dirt and shared bathrooms on the other side of the courtyard), don't come here.

Liked: Good location (close to the rail car) and great character of the hostel.

Disliked: Meals are pretty expensive though tasty. When I stayed there it was pretty quiet and a majority of the people staying pretty much lived there... Beds aren't the best either
