Liked: The character of the place. Had a lot of extra facilities for eg laundry and dryer, great kitchen facilities and you can buy home cooked meals there some of the days. Staff were helpful and friendly but a bit cliquey. Anyhow met some cool people there.

Disliked: It is a little out location wise but the streetcar stops just across the road.

Liked: Nice chill out place, staff is generally nice and helpful, the breakfast is worth it's small price.

Disliked: For a traveller like me, who only sleeps and showers at the hostel, this place is simply way too far from the downtown area, even though the street car stop was right next to the place (New Orleans streetcars ain't the most reliable). But if one doesn't mind this, definitely worth the price!

Liked: Really cool and fun hostel. Lots of nice people and good kitchen, Internet and a tv lounge. Had a really nice BBQ for only 5 bucks! The swamp tour they organized for me was great!

Disliked: Seems like it's in a little bit of a dodgy area and is a bit far from the tourist area. The kitchen seemed clean but I saw cockroaches alot :S. But don't let any of this put you off cause overall it was a great hostel.
