wifi only works infront of the hostel and across the street, it doesn't work anywhere IN the hostel! I stayed in a room where people from at least 3 other rooms had to cut through to go to the bathroom which was next to our room without a door seperating these rooms. unfriendly staff at front desk, cealing above my...

This place was horrible and so overpriced Dont ever go. We have been travelling as backpackers and stayed at hostels for 4 months now and this is the worst. It's dirty, smelly and full of BEDBUGS! We even got moved to another room and there were also bedbugs. The whole hostel is inflated. Furthermore the manager blamed the bedbugs on...

This place is a rat's nest. The bunks are incredibly uncomfortable and mine was so high up I thought that I would roll over and fall while I was sleeping. Some of the rooms had carpet but mine had hard floor...I wonder if anyone really hurt themselves in these dorms. Also the toilets aren't the best and they take a...

It's not exquisite, but it's not terrible. The building is just really old, like most of the city. There are stains on the linens that indicate bedbugs may have once lived here, which was kind of creepy, but there absolutely no signs of bedbugs currently (10/2013), and I checked for them several times after reading previous reviews. Despite stains, the...

I checked into this place without having done much research. Arrived straight from the airport and immediately got terrible vibes from the building (falling apart) and locale - which seemed like the wrong area to start off a visit in NOLA with no local knowledge. The man at the desk was creepy and unhelpful. I wandered past a dozen men...

My experience of this place was mixed. On the one hand, wifi was intermittent even when standing next to reception, the only place where you could pick it up. The staff were sullen and uncooperative. My shower wasn't working. Security was appalling. Locals spent most waking hours in the communal garden drinking and leering at passers-by with music blaring. And...

This hostel only a block away from the St. Charles streetcar, is a great base from which to explore the WW2 museum, Audubon Park, ride over to Camellia Grill past Tulane, or take the streetcar all the way to its end at Bourbon Street. The private room I stayed in has all the basics, and the place is more restful,...

The ol' marquette house in New Orleans. It turns out New Orleans is a very expensive place to book hotels or hostels, that's where the Marquette House comes in. Located a block off of St. Charles street the marque room is somewhat, sorta, kinda conveniently located, near downtown new orleans. My favourite part about this hostel is they allow pets....

DO NOT stay here EVER. My husband and I were literally travelling (backpacking) around the world and we have stayed in many places of varying qualities as we were on a tight budget, but this was without doubt the WORST. Let me add that we had been all over Brazil, Chile, Cuba and even Jamaica but this was disgusting. Staff...

It is 2 blocks from a bus or streetcar directly to Burbon Street. Good security. No lockers. Reliable coffee. common room and garden. Wi-fi only--no computers. Charged almost double for New Years Eve and Day. Clean linen and towel. Travel advice. I didn't get the bunk I was assigned--someone else was in it. Adequate showers and toilets. I would stay...
