I stayed here with 4 other girl mates in June 2010, we had a 6 bed room and a girl that was working at the hostel was staying in with us. She was completely crazy and drunk most of the time. The building's are run down, with lots of chipped wood, graffiti on the walls, cockroaches in the bathrooms and the "pool" is so dirty it is gross, the water was cloudy and there were plenty of UFO's flying around in it.

But the atmosphere at this place is awesome, if you're looking to meet great people and be entertained this is a great place. In the evenings, everyone gathers in the back garden where there are lots of benches and the staff would make some strong cocktails and cook some food for everyone. Some nights there was singing and then people would group up and go out together.

During the daytime, it's pretty quiet and chilled as most people tend to be hungover and slobbing around.

If you're not too bothered about cleanliness and comfort but want to meet other people and have a reat time in New Orleans, this is a good option.

Stacey is great - both on the desk and cooking (cheap) breakfast. Could be a few more bathrooms and the place could do with a coat of paint but charming in a faded hippie-house kind of way...One minute walk to trolley car and a great venue (Chickie Wah Wah) 2 blocks away. If you don't want to be kept awake by young noisy drunks outside until 4am don't sleep in a back dorm,but generally the vibe is pleasant and laid-back and it's easy to meet fellow-travellers. Recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are quieter.

This hostel is right across the road from the streetcar which is super convenient. We stayed the first nite in the 12-bed dorm then moved into the all girl dorm upstairs.. The big room has a private bathroom with 2 toilets & there r 2 more showers & a toilet upstairs.. A bit dirty and only a curtain to shield u from the rest of the building but certainly can't complain. Breakfast was awesome and super cheap ($1 for toast) & there's great facilities - chill out area inside & out, pool, fridges for food & booze, kitchen.. Staff r friendly, yeah air con is noisy but ear plugs blocked it out sufficiently. Great party atmosphere.

As a solo traveler, this place barely cut it for me. Bathrooms are ok but can be much cleaner with all the bugs I kept seeing, same goes for the bed sheets and blankets, not sure exactly how clean they were either, especially with the cat wondering around everywhere. I didn't use the facilities but I'm not entirely sure of the outdoor kitchen, although the indoor one looked fine. Breakfast isn't until 9, and even then you have to pay, which I don't really agree with in a hostel. The dorm room I was in really wasn't all that welcoming or homey, it made me want to stay out as late as I can and spend as little time there as possible. Beds were super noisy, cracks on the walls, noise air conditioner. Location is ok since it's right near the streetcar and only takes about 10 minutes to get into town. As with the kitchen, common area was ok. I think if you're staying here for spring break or something (as MANY people do I believe), I think it would be ok, but I wouldn't stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building, mine was in the one next door and makes since slightly more inconvenient.

helpful staff/ good breakfast/private rooms good, with great bathrooms.clean but beds could be more comfortable. Can be noisy if you are in a dorm. Trams into city are 50yds away.
A good cheap place to stay.

Room Tip: private rooms are quiet.
