    Superb

    Awesome hostel. As good as the best European hostels. Met great people, streetcar 1 min from hostel runs until 4 and uber home really cheap. Great facilities, shame pool wasn't open but understand as it is down time. Comfy beds too! If you're wanting to meet other people as a solo traveller (like me) or as a couple this is the place. All of the staff were great I just forgot their names! I'm annoyed that I only had 3 nights here, could easily spend a week. Sad!

    Awesome place, one of the best I've been! Huge property, lots of places to hang out, plenty of kitchen space. Chill staff and atmosphere. A great home base if you're hitting up NOLA and a perfect hangout spot if you want to meet people/party/everything :)

    Very good hostel. The staff were excellent and the facility itself was charming. The dorms weren't very well insulated but this is the norm in New Orleans. I had no problems and would stay again.
