this is the best, laid back and hippy hostel i have been to for a long time. it simply oozes new orleans and is very down to earth. as far as interior is concerned, it is clean, has the amenities you need and is really quirky. the hostel has brilliant nooks and crannys for you to sit and relax in. outside they have ample tables and chairs and a pool which looked cared for. they do an amazing breakfast selection for a small price and the food is fresh and well cooked. the rooms were clean, basic and had functioning air conditioning; everything a traveller needs.
as far as location, its not in the french quarter but it has a tram stop right outside that takes you directly into the french quarter. this helps with feeling safe too as the stop is so close to the hostel you get on and off right outside the hostel and have a stones throw to the front door.
i would recommend this hostel to people of all ages if you like the 'backpacker' , laid back and slightly hippy atmosphere. its great to meet people and get into the New Orleans spirit!
