    Myself and my partner stayed here and we had the best experience. The staff invited us along to a party by the river and we meet more people and loved the atmosphere. The staff treated us really well and it felt like a second home. If you are looking for the best hostel in New Orleans this is it! Thank you all for a wonderful holiday see you all next year!

    I walked only 40 minutes from the Fairgrounds so it is a perfect location and met some new friends there. The down side is the managements decision that older and younger folks lifestyles are too different to sleep in a dorm with 6 bunk beds. Now over 55 yrs old have to get a private room. 😡 I can understand recommending it , but not to make it a hard and fast rule. Even a couple sharing a room have to each pay with only a small discount. Reconsider the rule or older folk WILL go to Airbnb.

    I spent five days at Site 61 (along with partner) in a 4-person dorm, and it's honestly been one of the best places we've stayed in the States during our three-month trip. It's really well run and everyone is so friendly and genuine. It's more like being in someone's home more than a hostel -- this isn't a loud party hostel (which is exactly what we didn't want), it's a calm and charming place to unwind, get a good night's sleep and chill out in the back yard with a cat.

    It was great! I was in New Orleans with a friend for a wedding so we didn't spend much time around the hostel, but the facilities and amenities were nice. I'd stay there again!

    Very clean and welcoming environment. Beds comfy, with towels and sheets issued. Late check out was perfect too. Only cons are that it was extremely hot in the rooms with no AC. Just a fan, that blew hot air around. Didn't make for a good nights sleep. However, very little noise in hostel as a whole. Nice atmosphere and plenty of amenities.

    Location is far from downtown, hence why it’s cheaper. So consider transport costs when booking. No locker in room, only downstairs in lounge. All you can eat pancakes for breakfast is good. Plenty of hang out areas inside and outside but not much of an atmosphere.
