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.

We are chartered as a resource for young foreign travelers. Due to our limited amount of space, we require that upon check-in each guest provides a valid foreign passport or an international ID.

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

    Amazing. The only place you should stay in New Orleans. The staff are amazing and looked after me so much. Its one big happy family and you always feel safe. Great atmosphere, great location and great facilities. Gonzalo is an amazing guy and worker. I love that guy! Also, Fabrizio was always great to be around - they are a credit to the hostel! Finally, Stacey and Jeff are perfect hosts. Any problem I had they always had the perfect resolution. I came a long way from England, but felt at home!

    This hostel!! When my trip plans blew up in smoke, the staff at madame Isabell’s worked so hard to switch everything around and accommodate my complicated changes. The atmosphere was amazing and they even have weekly group events like beer pong and a pub crawl. I absolutely enjoyed my stay.

    Owned by very cool Korean guy Sean who bought us all drinks to pregame and even ran beer pong with us! Hot tub and smoking room are good vibes. Beautiful place, phenomenal location, and great weekend.

    Everything was very well handled, and though some of their property was in light ill-repair, I give that a pass because of the recent weather. They had a contractor there actively trying to fix things, so extra points. Rooms were very comfy, and I the yard was absolutely gorgeous. Cute cat too!

    Hostel was very clean and had a very welcoming and nice atmosphere, the staff was fantastic, and very accommodating. The mixed dorm was clean and the curtains on the beds were nice along with individual lights, and outlets. The room was plenty cold enough even though it was around 88 degrees outside. I will definitely be staying here again.

    I really enjoyed staying here. The staff, particularly Stacey and Jeff, were extremely helpful and nice. The hostel is in a perfect location, about 10 mins walk to Frenchmen and Bourbon streets. The kitchen is large and full of things to use, the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The hostel itself is an old, beautiful house with lots of nice places to hang out. Thanks for everything!
