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.

Liked: Atmosphere!

Disliked: The area was extremely dodgy, but if you don't walk around on your own like a plonker you'll be fine.

Liked: The price is pretty good, I think I only paid $20 for one night.

Disliked: The rooms are not in the same building as the lobby, so if you happen to arrive when it is raining hard like I did, then you will be wet. The hostel has air conditioning a bit cold for some people. They could repaint some of the rooms and a bit more cleaning wouldn't hurt. Maybe it is me, but New Orleans seems to be a city in poverty and the area may appear safe to many.
