Liked: Great location if you're looking to see more than just the French Quarter! I also loved how the bathrooms were all spaced out but close together, there was always at least one open - no waiting in lines!

Disliked: The room had a bit of a funky smell at first, but the hostel itself was very clean.

Liked: Good location, close to street cars that take you to the main areas really cheaply. Free shuttle to and from greyhound and Amtrak was very useful. Pancakes for breakfast every morning. Clean and tidy.

Disliked: Not much information regarding things to do and see in New Orleans. We found all the good things to do on our last day and ran out of time!!

Liked: This Place is very very good, as my first hostel it totally exceeded my expectations especial for the money paid. Friendly staff and generally a great atmosphere

Disliked: The room was a little warm, and the walk to the street cart is a little long but safe enough to walk back at 3 in the morning. so Worth it for the price

Liked: Safe neighbourhood, which as a solo female traveler was important to me. The outdoor courtyard was small, but pleasant. Make-your-own pancakes for breakfast was great!

Disliked: Could have done with a couple more bathrooms/showers, but it was never much of a problem for me personally. Not the liveliest hostel I've stayed in - they could have organised some hostel events for guests, maybe.

Liked: Staff would do anything for you, really friendly. Twin room was a little cramped with a bunk and a single bed and no window, but it was fine. Nice garden for socializing and decent kitchen. Clean throughout and good location for streetcar to the centre of the city, neighbourhood felt safe and we were happy walking back from town late at night

Disliked: Could do with somewhere inside to sit and eat when it's too humid for outside eating

Liked: It's definitely a very good choice and worth that money. I can just recommend it to everybody! Quite good location, friendly and helpful staff, and the house just makes you feel like at home.

Disliked: The room could be bigger, for 6/8 people on bunk beds it was a bit small, but for budget travellers like me that's not a tragedy or something you couldn't survive.

Liked: staff were lovely

Disliked: not enough showers/bathrooms at all. the lockers in the rooms are expensive $7 to hire and they are tiny. not even big enough for my small bag which is smaller than the average airline carry on size. Lockers should be big enough to take a medium to large rucksack. these were pretty much useless. the indoor common area is just the end of the hallway, not really like an area to sit and relax in or even wit any tables to eat at if outside is too hot etc the location is lovely and safe but too far from the centre of town. it's a 10 minute walk to get to the streetcars to take you there. despite the staff all being lovely, i wouldn't stay here again
