    Great hostel! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the facility/room was very clean. I had a late flight that was hours after check-out and I was able to store my luggage, walk around the city, and come back and shower before my flight.

    I have stayed in hostels in Manhattan, Seattle, LA, New Orleans and Washington DC. The HI New Orleans was by far the best of the five. I would highly recommend!

    Amazing hostel. One of the best I’ve ever stayed at. Key card entry into the building, then again to get into the dorm area, then again to get into the room and for the lockers. Kitchen, cafe, and bar. Pool tables, a library, and common area. Tons of clean private bathrooms and showers. I never had to wait and never had to try to find an open bathroom. Dorms were clean, quiet, and private with a curtain. Dorm beds that are actually comfortable and TWO nice pillows! Outlets with USB and a light!

    Overall an excellent experience I would happily repeat and recommend to others. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm and felt secure throughout and the rooms were clean and the staff very helpful. The only (very slight) criticisms I had were that the room I stayed in had quite a lot of noise from the road outside, and that the the "onsite cafe" was actually a not terribly cheap Mexican restaurant. However these very, very minor issues in no way spoiled my stay and I would happily return.

    A little bit expensive as a hostel bunk bed but it's worth it.
