For $30 or so a night, I truly have very low expectations. The mattress need not be comfortable, the facilities need not be beautiful. Nothing could have prepared me for the infestation of bed bugs and fleas, however, at Marquette House. It's clear from the facilities that "deferred maintenance" isn't the problem — there's just no maintenance at all. The facilities are dirty and run-down, the bathrooms are literally disgusting and unsanitary. The fleas from the carpet will chow down on your legs while the bed bugs lick their lips preparing for their late night feast (for which you have a reservation!). I might have been able to deal with the fleas (seriously, the thought crossed my mind), but when the bed bugs crawled out, I made the decision to sleep in my car until I could make other arrangements. Beware.

Room Tip: Try one of the other hostels in New Orleans or sleep in your car.

Location! Price! Personality!

We stayed in the 2 bedroom self contained apartments located across the street from the main building of the hostel and couldn't have been happier.

The apartment was clean and a decent size for the 3 of us, with comfy beds and A/C...there was even a bath in my private ensuite bathroom (which I happily relaxed in because it was so clean, really)!

The staff consisted of your usual New Orleans cha-rak-ters, which I loved, but more importantly looked after the hostel and us well, giving us local tips, secrets, and extra help.

As we were in NOLA for Jazzfest, we were out most of the time, so the stay may have been different if i'd stayed in the whole time but...you're in New Orleans! The are too too many good times to be had to stay in, much less sleep for more than 4 hours a night :-)

Room Tip: Just remember. It's a hostel. Not the Grand Hyatt.

We stayed here as part of a large volunteer group on a service project and had a very good experience. Although the rooms and overall accommodations were spartan, they were clean and functional. The few small issues that we had were dealt with quickly by the management. I recommend that large groups renting a private kitchen/meeting area as this will facilitate breakfast or other meals, meetings, and other gatherings. The Garden District location (one block from the St. Charles streetcar line) was convenient for our work and getting to things to do at night. Overall, a very good and reasonably-priced experience.
