Staff was great!!!!


The staff were amazing especially Caleb . He made the entire stay in New Orleans just that little extra special. The hostel itself was perfect easy walk from the city centre , bourbon street and 500m from Walmart. Could not have asked for more from a hostel


Great location. Manageable walking distance to downtown area and close to Magazine Street which is also worth checking out. I would definitely recommend this place.


Though a bit out of the way (particularly in light of of New Orleans' less-than-stellar public transit system), the hostel is still clean, well-stocked and provides a nice indoor/outdoor common area. For once my traveling partner and I enjoyed a private room, which had a fantastic air conditioner. It also had a couple of earwigs, but it is the Bayou in Spring, hard to blame them! I'd stay again, the staff and other visitors were fantastic!


the staff was extremely helpful and made my stay pleasant. The place had some usual wear and tear but to be expected. My overall stay was good.

I had a great stay! The staff is amazing and the atmosphere made for one of the best hostel experiences I've had! It's not too far out of town, only 15 minutes on the streetcar and only a $7 cab ride at night. My only "complaint" is that it was so much fun hanging out on the patio that sometimes it was hard to leave : )


Good stay at aae house .. Great staff and friendly people, everything needed is there .. Can't ask for much more.

We were a bit hesitant at first as the area looks a bit dodgy. But as soon as we got into the hostel and had introductions etc. all worries vanished! Amazing spot and very convenient to the trolley straight into bourbon at and the French quarter!! Pancakes are awesome..I want the recipe!! Everyone very friendly! Would def stay here again!

Stayed at Bourbon three weeks. Staff was very good about finding accommodation when I had no bed. Caleb Breen was cool as hell. Made a fun atmosphere with easy conversation and a right jolly mood. Led group tours to Parisols!!! Awesome po boy :)


The staff were excellent. So friendly and took time when explaining directions or giving suggestions! The outdoor space was cozy and always had people lounging there. It's within blocks of magazine street/garden district and just a 25 min streetcar ride to the French Quarter, which was great. The only thing that would need improvement are the bathrooms and bathroom cleanliness. But you definitely get more than what you paid for when you stay at AAE and I'd recommend it to my friends.
