    The best decision I made on my Nola trip was staying at this hostel. From the staff to the AMAZING beds, I cannot think of a better place to stay!

    This is the nicest hostel I have ever stayed at. Everything is modern and updated and the entire hostel is impeccably clean; bathrooms included. They provide all linens at no extra charge and lockers are electronic so no need to bring a lock. Pillows and mattresses were very comfortable. It’s right on Canal St, so right in the center of New Orleans and only about a 5-10 minute walk to the center of the French quarter.

    clean. the arrangements for the shared rooms are good. there are curtains that you can pull over your bed for privacy. bathrooms are also private and include showers (i.e., they are not bathroom stalls). lockers include an automatic light. there is also a private light and plug at each bed.

    I have stayed at many hostels over the years when travelling with my children & now as a senior. This hostel was outstanding in every way. Quiet with very friendly & helpful staff. Exceptionally clean with high quality bed linens & pillows. Alcohol was only allowed in the main floor lounge but few people were seen drinking during my one week stay. As an environmental activist, I was thrilled to see how eco-friendly this hostel was. Kudos to this organization!

    Great hostel! Would definitely stay here again when I come back to the city. Only comment I have is that they have somebody clean the toilets regularly.

    Very modern and new hostel. The bed was great, the mattress was comfy, there were two pillows and an amazing bed comforter! Also, the bed has curtains to keep privacy. I so loved the bed and had amazing sleep! Breakfast was also great, staff was super friendly. Only thing was, that the bathrooms were not always clean. I think they would be cleaner if each dorm had one inside. Also there was construction on the street of our dorm so it was a little noisy. Nevertheless the location was perfect.

    Really great place to stay close to the French Quarter! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting somewhere safe and good quality. The only thing is that maybe they could hold some more like games nights or a pub crawl/walking tour or something like that to make it a bit easier for guests to meet each other.
