    Spent my first night in New Orleans here. Everything was very clean and it’s cool how the bar downstairs is open 24 hours. The only thing is that this isn’t the best hostel to meet new people because they didn’t even show my friends and I around and they didn’t really do any activities together the night we were there. Everyone is kind of doing their own thing.

    This was my 1st time ever staying @ a hostel & we were very impressed. The location was great in walking distance to several restaurants and 24 hour spots. The street car runs 24hours a day right in front of the hostel. The room was nice and looks just like it does on the pictures. We were in a 4 person dorm nice and clean... Lots of natural light in the day (for those that like that... I love it). The breakfast provided was nice as well as the 24hours bar, happy hour and staff was nice.

    The staff here were absolutely amazing. Dion, the night hostess made my night. The hostel was very clean. The beds were comfortable. This is a walk from Frenchman Quarter, however, close enough. The street car is right out front of this location. The showers were clean. The bar and common areas were kept clean. Security was never a concern. The rooms were quiet. The vibe was absolutely positive. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here and I would stay here again the next time I visit NOLA.

    My friend and I had a great stay at The Quisby! The facilities were clean and well kept. While the hostel is a street car ride away from the French Quarter, it is very easily accessible to Magazine Street as well as the WWII museum and actually kind of nice to be away from the craziness when you’re done for the day :). Overall a great place I’d recommend!

    The bars in the immediate vicinity are quiet and very local but there is a decent variety of restaurants within a couple blocks along St. Charles Ave. (highly recommend the Trolley Stop Cafe). Staff were helpful. The bed mattresses are firm but there was surprisingly little street noise in the 2nd floor dorm, though the music from the bar in the lobby seeped through. Which leads to my only complaint: The non-stop music mix was too loud to make the small seating area useful for reading.

    Really loved this hostel. Really local vibe and very easy to meet people with the bar area downstairs. We were very comfortable, loved the mattresses, and appreciated the en-suite bathroom!

    Wasn't prepared for there being no kitchen where you could cook meals. They have a good breakfast and unlimited tea and coffee.Free toiletries. Staff are very helpful especially Dionne who deserves a huge shout out. She changed our room when a roommate was found drunk/drugged/having a breakdown (?) lying butt naked on the bathroom floor. The location isn't too far from the FQ & there's a tram that stops right outside. Cleaning staff not too efficient though. Didn't clean even with the sign up.

    The Quisby isan interesting place to stay. Generally , the place is very clean, well serviced, good facilities in the bar, bedrooms, lockers, laundry. Bar is a good place to meet people, and cocktails on offer are very good - it's a well stocked bar! The staff are friendly & incredibly welcoming (shout out to Jose and Dione). However, there is no communal hangout space aside from the bar, with music always very loud! Llocation is not fantastic, with some interesting characters wandering the area

    Nice staffs, good vibes. But I don’t think the location was safe. I was planning to stay 5 nights but I changed to one night because of security. Especially street car near to the hostel doesn’t work because of construction. It is a little bit hard to get French Quarter. Except those things, everything was great
