Property Description

Built in 1831, Madame Isabelle’s family moved onto the property at the turn of the century, in 1900. Her family expanded and decorated the house before Madame’s father bequeathed it 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 this area. As we are proud of every single detail that makes this house special, we encourage you to enjoy every part of it as well and to feel at home for the duration of your stay.

Once you venture out 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, fifteen 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.

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 brand-new linens; however, you may not want to stay in your room long because the hidden courtyard garden awaits you, replete with an outdoor deck and a Jacuzzi hot tub.

    I absolutely loved my stay! The aesthetic is super cute, the place was clean, and the staff was incredibly friendly! It was a short distance from Frenchmen street and the French quarter and I loved all the activities in the evenings (catered to all sorts of people). It was definitely a great experience for my first time in a hostel.

    I truly enjoyed my stay here. The staff and the other guests made the trip for me. It was my first time staying at a Hostel, and Madam Isabelle's set the bar pretty high for me going forward. I will always stay here when visiting New Orleans. Thank you so very much.

    Loved Madame Isabelles! The hostel is in a perfect location in the French Quarter, walkable to almost everything (including Frenchman Street, Bourbon Street, Jackson Square, etc.) and rideshare accessible. The other guests were nice and respectful of shared space and facilities. The staff were very friendly and extremely welcoming, always available to answer questions or provide recommendations.

    I only stayed for one night, but it was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Bathrooms and dorms were clean. I really liked the vibe overall. A short distance to all the happenings downtown, which I loved. I rode my bike there so it was super close and convenient. Another great thing is that there was free overnight street parking. That was a huge plus for me.

    Nice hostel, excellent locatiom., Beautiful surroundings. Please fix your AC-s in your dorm rooms though, could barely get any sleep due to AC going on and off constantly with monsterous noise (and I was wearing good earplugs). AC-s are obviously making some sound, but this wasn't normal. Fix it or invest into a new one. There's no point having an excellent place if the sleep part is totally missing.
