Liked: It was the cheapest place to stay that still had beds available for Jazzfest. Pretty much the only reason my friend and I stayed there, although the location is alright.

Disliked: It's a poorly laid out compound and none of the staff showed us where anything was, not even our rooms. It took us until right before our stay ended to find out there even was a kitchen. The bathroom in the women's dorm room leaves absolutely no privacy, and while I'm not a princess, if you have to go at 3 in the morning, you will be waking everyone up. And no one enjoys that. Everything else was pretty lackluster and underwhelming.

Liked: This hostel is very near from the downtown and this is a very important thing when you go to New Orlean's night.

Disliked: It's a very stranger place when you arrive. It's not so clean.I've been stayed in a 14 bed room but there was only 3 guys. This room was very very dirty and looks like the Saw's film.The reception is not 24 hours.

Liked: It's not that bad, so I can recommend to stay here, there not many options in New Orleans anyway.First, location is good. It's not far from French Quarter, you can even walk there or get there by street car which is one block away from the hostel. The neighborhood looked safe, not sketchy at all.12-bed dorm did not look small or overcrowded, because it was actually 3 rooms with 2 bunk beds in each of them.Hostel's outside area is fine, I think it is nice to hang out there when the weather is good.It's possible to leave luggage in the storage room, and it's free.

Disliked: However there are a lot of things that need improvement.The most important is cleanliness: it is really dirty. Rooms and common areas don't look dirty. But bathrooms are horrible. Dirty toilets, and since there are no trash bins inside people through toilet paper on the floor. It seems that nobody took out trash from underneath the beds for months.Receptionists should tell at least basic information about hostel facilities and rules when they check in guests, not just give room keys!The shower in my dorm had only cold water. The one in the main building was OK though, but still...It would be much better if they had lockers.

Liked: District 9-esqe chic. 1 minute walk to a busy street and about 20 minutes up that road to the start of the French Quarter.

Disliked: I think its important to first note that you do get what you pay for. If you're hostelling it, then you likely just want a place to sleep and will not be spending much time there. The dorms have a laughably B-Movie horror film feel to them. Rickety sliding doors between dorm rooms. Hot water was sketchy and the toilets seemed to always be blocked. 'Characters' we shared in the dorm (20 bed not 14 as described) were a man crusading across the US dubbing himself 'Super Jesus' and another who liked to sit around in his Breaking Bad style white y-fronts. Its literally a place to crash, something which served its purpose. Didn't feel unsafe, though women may feel different. I couldn't recommend this place but it did make a story. Would have been monumentally hot in the dorm if it wasn't February weather.

Liked: The location is alright I suppose, though it's still a long walk to anywhere decent

Disliked: The people at the desk were completely wasted when I got there on a saturday night. Although they claim to have a kitchen it has no stove, the only cooking device is a portable grill which is slow and useless
