St. Vincent's Guesthouse

New Orleans, USA

I've stayed in dozens of hostels in many different countries, and St Vincent has to be one of the worst. It's old and dirty, you have to share the showers with too many people, they canceled my private room reservation saying my credit card purchase via hostelworld didnt work (I booked 8 days ahead, but they never sent a message to say the payment didnt go through, so my girlfriend and I ended up sharing a dorm with a bunch of agitated spring breakers). Apart from that, it's pretty decent


IHSP was definitely one of the best hostels i've ever stayed at in the US. The location is perfect, right off the blue line train, in the vibrant district of Damen/Wicker Park. The room was clean, the staff was very friendly, the atmosphere was really good thanks to the huge common room/kitchen where everybody can hang out and have a good breakfast.
