    I've stayed in many hostels around the world, but the Atlas House really stands out. And the staff is what makes it amazing. They create a social and friendly atmosphere for everyone staying there, and they do there best to organize events so you could get to know your fellow travelers and have great time. A special thanks to Britt, Channy, Jenn, Jordan, Leah and Sadik, as they made my stay in NOLA even better! Would highly recommend this hostel for anyone staying in New Orleans.

    We were two girls staying here for about 5 nights, and we had the best possible time. The hostel has a nice cozy vibe and you instantly feel at home. The best part though was the staff. They take care of you and make sure you’re comfortable. We made some good friends here who we sincerely hope to meet again.

    Lovely hostel in classic New Orleans converted house. Great staff. Free pancake breakfast was a plus. A little cold at night in January. Fantastic location close to very cool shops and cafes. Would highly recommend.

    Very Good

    As many of the other reviews stated, the location was great. It was easily accessible to bus, streetcar, art district & heading downtown. The bathroom and bedroom were clean and neat. Con 1: There were no air conditioners in the house. I went in January & pretty humid in the bedroom, almost unbearable, so I can’t imagine the summer. Con 2: They advertise not housing people over 30, yet while I was there I saw at least 4 people over 30. One guy was cool but still, it was kinda misleading.

    This review is for a private room with bathroom at the Atlas. The cost was about $120/night. The bed was awful, squeaky and with a large depression. Blinds were missing. Water pressure poor. Items of furniture broken. Was so awful I left after the first night and paid for new lodging, even though I could not get a refund for rest of the stay at Atlas (prepaid) If you are looking for a private room for a couple or small group, you are almost certainly better off with a hotel or AirBnB.
