The building was completely redesigned and renovated in 2014, to add more full bathrooms and modern amenities. Most of the rooms continue to be offered as Private rooms, rather than shared dorms.

We require a minimum booking of 2 nights.

Cancellation may be made 2 days before arrival, without charge. Cancellation made less than 2 days before arrival will be charged the first night's rate plus taxes.

    I really liked it at the hostel and the people were lovely. As for the location: for me it was perfect as it was not quite in the center if you can see burbon street and the French quarter as that. You can easily walk to all places (which I did) or take the cable cars tho. It had a homey feel to it and the people there really made you feel welcomed. Would definitely stay again

    This place is awesome. It's usually pretty quiet but tends to pick up on the weekends. I stayed here for a month and a half. The staff here is great. Miss Jean is very nice and Dawn really does a great job keeping the place clean. But my buddy Matt really made the trip fun for me. He's Mr. Southern Hospitality! Looking forward to coming back soon.

    Cute hostel that was very clean and well cared for. The other people staying there were quiet and respectful. There are eco friendly systems in this hostel. To get around it is easy. Download RTA mobile app and buy bus tickets. There are bus stops in front of the hostel or you can walk 10 mins through a cute neighborhood to get to canal st to get to the trolley. This takes you from city park to French quarter. We used buses during day and Ubers at night.

    Away from downtown area but a inexpensive 25 minute trolley that's a short walk takes you right to all the action of New Orleans. Great if your driving as there is free street parking

    Matt is the best part of staying here. If you don’t feel welcome by him & around him, you need help! My stay was a point where things were slow, so not a lot of people there. But those that were, were great! We ate meals together & talked & shared. Like life, nothing is perfect, but this met my needs & exceeded them! Be smart when you’re out & about, & you will be fine. This is a party town! I don’t party, but I’d never seen New Orleans & thought it would be nice to find out more about why.
