1. My Booking through Hostelworld.com never worked and I was forced to pay full price for a different facility, which wasn't too much, but kinda smash my first impression. 2. Pros are - great location, decent, clean rooms and kitchen. WiFi, lockers on request - great. Staff was friendly, though there was no public space available at the time of my visit - 3 people sleeping in the living room made me (3 -at-night-insomniac) feel bad when I went to check my email. Single bathroom isn't enough(
Good atmosphere! Reasonably close to park and French Quarter.
Perfect beach hostel.
Great atmosphere, great stuff!
Staff was extremely friendly and trying to help)
Staff is definitely great! Absense of AC can annoy Backhouse guests, I guess) Lots of bathrooms, though, SPACIOUS kitchens... And West Hollywood is reLAtively close
Isn't a traditional hostel, but is a fine option to stay.
