"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: this place is epic.... we decided to go all upper class and book the private room (merely three bucks each more) and were treated to a top notch air conditioner to cool our new orleans warmed heels. the place has it all... one of the best communal and pool areas i have come across in my 5 months of travel and the place is small enough to mingle with one and all. its addictive and quite hard to leave once you get into the new orleans groove.good music playing non stopkitchen/cooking facilities to save you some penniesHEAPS of fridges both for food AND alcohol so that there is always room to keep your drinks coolplenty of bathrooms and obviously some big renovations brewing to make the place even nicer.you wouldnt stay anywhere else in new orleans... quote that!

Disliked: sheets were a little sketchy, but who cares when you sleep like a baby!

Liked: Great hostel for atmosphere. Great outdoor and indoor areas. Great character. Best hostel to meet people and socialize. The swimming pool is great.

Disliked: house's are old and run down. Linin is also old and have been heavily bleached. Generally the place seems very run down. But the awsome atmosphere and character make up for it.

Romantic getaway

12 October 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The atmosphere is incredible. This was my second time staying here. The first was a more party themed week in a mixed dorm several years ago, but this time was a more intimate stay. The India house was able to accommodate us on both of these trips. I highly recommend it. Oh and the water pressure in the showers was strong and hot. VERY rare in a hostel. It was awesome!

Disliked: The India House is very clean and friendly, however, the beds are awful on the back.

Liked: Good: Free internet, pool, good kitchen and good atmosphere. Right next to a tram that goes into the downtown area for $1.25 a time.Bad: Communual bathrooms. One room for toilets, one for showers. If you want to walk to the center then it takes about half an hour. Quite far from Greyhound/Amtrack

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.

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.
