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.

Liked: Location was excellent - 50 metres to trolley to downtown. Felt safe also.

Disliked: 12 beds, 1 shower & 2 toilets (but no sink to wash hands in 2nd toilet). All not very clean. Kitchen area was a mess also. Couldn't find much gear to use in kitchen either.
