Property Description

Built in 1831, Madame Isabelle’s family moved into the property at the turn of the century, in the 1900’s. Her family expanded and decorated the house before Madame Isabelle’s father passed it down to her. Madame Isabelle and her husband continued to renovate the house until they left the city in 2002.

The house is tastefully ornamented and furnished, staying faithful to the architectural characteristics typical of old New Orleans houses in the area. As we are proud of every single detail that makes this house special, we encourage you to enjoy every part of it and we welcome you to feel at home during your stay.

Once you venture out of the house, a vibrant neighborhood welcomes you. Delicious restaurants and local bars share the streets with Creole cottages and shotgun houses. Though set in a quiet area, thriving nightlife is easily accessible from Madame Isabelle’s House. Frenchmen Street is only five minutes away by foot, Bourbon Street is within ten minutes walking distance, and Canal Street, which connects you to Mid-City and Uptown, twenty minutes away by foot. If you would like to explore more than the downtown area without heading all the way to Canal Street, there is a bus stop conveniently located at the corner of the street that can transport you to any of the city’s many renowned tourist destinations.

Rooms and dorms
Dormitory rooms as well as private rooms are available. There are two and three person private rooms in the house. Almost all of our private rooms are equipped with a cable TV, a refrigerator, and a private bathroom. All beds are equipped with new, 8-inch mattresses and linens; however, you may not want to stay in your room for too long as the hidden courtyard garden awaits you, replete with an outdoor deck and a Jacuzzi hot tub.

Guests over 40 years of age will be welcomed to stay in the private rooms but not be allowed to stay in a dorm room.

We strive to maintain a comfortable environment for our guests and try to avoid two major hassles in a common hostel - noise and smoke. Quiet hours are between 20:30 and 8:00. Two communal areas will be open during the quiet hours. We keep a smoke-free environment except in the smoking room that is equipped with a TV and an air conditioner/ heater.

Thank you for choosing Madame Isabelle's House in New Orleans. We will do our best to serve you and hope you have an enjoyable and memorable experience in this great city. View House Rules

    All the good parts of a hostel without the bad bits! Really good breakfast- bagels, oatmeal, toast, eggs, ham, juice, coffee. Clean rooms all with small lockers for personal items. The house is really relaxed and not party vibe, everyone hangs out in the many chill places, but if you do want to party they organise events for the hostel at night- best of both worlds!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Madame Isabelles. The staff are wonderful, and I ended up spending much of my time there hanging out and going out dancing with them. Great atmosphere as well, and a perfect location.

    Super friendly staff. Excellent location, right near Frenchman's Street and the markets. Activities on every night to explore. Free breaky until 11(!?) was awesome. Beautiful house and SUPER comfy beds.

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in! It has a great vibe, it's super cute, the staff is amazing. If you have a car you're able to park out on the street at night (2hr limit besides that). The location is perfect, in walking distance to so many things. The hostel and staff does a great job at making a community feel which is so nice as a solo traveler. While there they had a jazz walk, jambalaya night, and we all went out to a burlesque show/dancing. Thank you all for a wonderful visit!

    I stayed a few nights in the 7 bed room at Madame Isabelle's. This is easily one of the best hostel stays I have ever had. Shout-out to Mae and the rest of the hostel staff for their genuineness and hosting events every night. Not a party hostel but walking distance to Burbon and Frenchman street. Social atmosphere was positive at all times of the day. I even participated in their first yoga event before going to swing dance. Please if you're reading this stay here when you come to New Orleans!

    Great location. Security good. Awesome area to sit. Lots of options such as chairs, hammock, hot tub etched. Only problem is old building doors make a lot of noise.

    Great place! Close to everything in the French quarter but a few blocks away so it is still nice and quiet. They have events every night so it is easy to meet people too. Friendly staff. Good comfy beds that I didn’t have to worry about shaking or anything when getting on/off the top bunk. Each bed has its own plug, light, and small shelf. Good clean bathrooms with hot water. AC works well in the rooms. Decent amount of common space to hang out in. Overall really fun, comfortable place to stay.

    My friend and I stayed at the hostel for our weekend trip to NOLA, and everything was great! The location is very convenient, in a very nice and peaceful neighborhood, yet just a 10 minute walk to the french quarter and a 5 minute walk to frenchmen street where all the jazz bars were. The hostel was very quiet at night and the beds were comfortable. Would stay there again.
