    Funky digs with good and cheap meals, welcoming and social staff, clean rooms- what more could you want? Sam, Alex, and Julie really made us feel right at home, went out with us, and took us to an awesome block party. Emily makes some bangin' tacos and led an awesome Mid-City pub crawl. Nate was a great drinking buddy and I wish we could have stuck around for one of his Frenchmen St bar crawls! And shout out to Samuel for helping us when our reservation got mixed up! What a great place to stay!!

    Couldn't be better. I've traveled around the world staying in hostels but I've always been hesitant to stay in one in the US. India House changed that and certainly rivals some of my favorite hostels in Europe. It's well run and organized while still maintaining that relaxed backpacker atmosphere. Shout-out to Lisa who especially gave 100% to make everyone feel at home. Location is perfect if you're wanting to explore the city without a car. Plenty of bathrooms even when hostel was full.

    Definitely a party hostel! There were a lot of college aged kids here for spring break, and other older guests with great local suggestions. Went to Bourbon St with some other guests. Super close to the trolley, yummy dinner food.
