Firehouse Hostel

Austin, USA

Top-notch location, the heart of downtown Austin. Really fun and friendly place, both staff and guests. Most "full-service" hostel I stayed at: towels and full breakfast included, desk 24 hours, even drink specials at the charming downstairs bar (hidden behind a bookshelf, speakeasy style) for hostel guests. Deluxe dorm beds are a bit more private, worth the upgrade. As others mentioned, you'll hear the concerts from upstairs; earplugs are free, though. Value for money can't be beaten.

AAE Bourbon House Hostel

New Orleans, USA

Staff were really friendly and the place was clean and quiet. Lovely neighborhood not far from Magazine St, though a bit of a trek from the streetcar. Office only open 7am-midnight, but will work with you to accommodate unusual flight/bus schedules. Pancakes at breakfast! Laundry available for $4, towels for $2. Appreciated the pickup and dropoff at the Amtrak station. Cash only at reception.
