    Totally at home. No clutter. Lots of room to move. Staff were great and as a result of atmosphere, the guests to fell in step with it. 4-5 blocks walk to street car and i believe there is city bus too.

    This hostel is good. Not far from the French Quarter & other poppin places in Nola. Decent breakfast if you can manage to wake up in time. Quiet area overall despite being right next to the street. Also close to the street car transportation. About a 10 minute walk. The only issue I had with this place was the lighting in the rooms, they weren't very well lit rooms and there seemed to be a draft in the room ( I was there during NYE). Other than that its not a bad location nor a bad price.

    Was not aware that a single room = a bunk bed and not a single bed. Also not aware that Hostel was in a sketchy neighborhood ?. Love and Learn....

    Was housed in the staff room. Staff in that room was pretty hostile, another guest reported that staff physically shoved her and I found this guest sleeping on the couch outside to avoid our shared room. having hostile staff really creates a negative environment and allows guests to not feel safe. would not recommend this hostel, hopefully some changes are made soon. guests should NOT be housed with staff.
