Liked: Great atmosphere at this hostel, great fun drinking out the back and meeting people.

Disliked: Mozies in the rooms but I suppose that can't really be helped too much. A few cockroaches in the bathrooms. Would have preferred lockers to have been in the rooms and more of them...seem quite limited. Location is in the suburbs but easy to get into town by Canal Street Car.

15 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very dirty sleeping accommodations and rooms, sheets and pillowcases covered in hair. The location is poor, but very close to trolly which takes you directly down to French Quarter. Unfortunately New Orleans has very few centrally located Hostels. The overall atmosphere was lively and interactive, with several different areas for socializing.

Customer review

27 May 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Where do I start? This is a cool place. Definitely a place to stay if you want to meet interesting people whether they are travelers or work there. Such a mellow 'camp' vibe at this place. Loved the decor as well, you will too unless you don't like 'clutter' ( treasure), multicolored walls, and art( some bad,some good) a plenty. The place was so cool that it didn't bug me that my private room was really a former/ current tool shed and the door was a screen covered with black plastic and locked with a tiny hook that could easily be kicked/pushed open. But I still felt safe. Definitely use the lockers they provide, just in case.
