    I fell across the Atlas House last minute after a mix up happened with my original plans. They were so accommodating helping me check-in late at night after a horribly long drive. I only planned on staying one night at Atlas and then hopping over to Couchsurf with friends. I loved the atmosphere and volunteers at Atlas House so much that I kept adding more nights. They were so flexible and so welcoming! I honestly would love to come back and volunteer one day so I can give back.

    One of the best places I stayed at, mainly because of the community and relationships created with all the staff and travelers. Clean, reasonable price, good location (eat at Surrays and Fat Boy Pantry down the street after your hangover!), nice neighborhood, fun decorations, not very strict (but safe). I would recommend! I Miss this place already!!

    Stayed for one night, wish it was a month. Me and my friend agreed, best hostel we've stayed in america. The people, history, the building. It is a cool spot for sure. Lots of cafes nearby, some really awesome late breakfast spots. This hostel is in one of the few areas in the city I was happy to walk around. Yeahhhh.... awesome time here.

    This place is freaking ammmmazing! I loved it here, me and my friends have some amazing memories of this place. The best part was definitely how easy it was to meet everyone. The fact it was super clean and had a free breakfast was a cool bonus tho. Want to go back there already.

    so glad I chose this hostel. Was travelling with a friend I met austin. We just wanted a chill spot that wasn't pretentious and was easy to meet fellow travelers. This hostel definitely fulfilled that, we were blown away by the friendliness of everyone we came across. The showers were hot, bathrooms clean (and plenty of them) and the beds we both had were like new or something, they were comfortable. Ended up extending our stay because we enjoyed it.

    Really great hostel, recommend staying here. There is loads of things around the hostel and the hostel communicates really well. Bathrooms were really clean and we never had to wait to use one. Really great feel to this place, and really easy meeting with people. If you get the chance stay here.

    Awesone hostel in new Orleans with awesome staff. This feels like a proper European Hostel with a great family atmosphere and really cool people. I had the best time here and was sorry to leave. It's a bit out of the way in the garden District, but you'll have just as much fun drinking liquor store alcohol here as you will have on bourbon st. Thanks all of you!
