    The Quisby is an interesting excellent place for first time hostellers. It’s quiet, spacious, & you have quite a bit more privacy than you would have at other hostels. You have your own private restroom, a locker, and outlets for charging your electronic devices which is a huge plus! The staff was very nice! There was a very nice cleaning woman who helped ensure that I had everything that I needed! Highly recommend!

    We really enjoyed our stay! Location cannot be beat, staff was always attentive & friendly (no matter what time we stumbled in!), our room with ensuite bathroom was clean & comfortable and ultra affordable. It felt like we stayed in a stylish, trendy boutique hotel instead of a hostel! Thank You, Quisby!

    Very clean, quiet accommodations close to the action. The staff I met were all very beautiful, friendly ladies. Because of COVID, this hostel is operating at 50% occupancy, which I really appreciate. I had a four person room to myself, which was marvelous. Highly recommend!

    Comfortable bed, cute bunks, updated bathroom. Plenty of options for you to plug in electronic devices. The bathroom and toilet had a strong urine smell. I don’t think it was cleaned at all or at least poorly. You could see the splash marks on the floor next to the toilet from the ceiling light reflecting.

    The location was centralized, an easy 20-min walk to The French Quarter, and a streetcar stop. The double private room gave us privacy, but the bunk could use a good disinfecting to remove stale smell, and replace stained mattress cover. The combination shower / toilet area worked had a few stray hairs. The decor was great. Bar service was limited, and there was no breakfast due to COVID. Staff was friendly. Price was reasonable. Would have liked to cook, but kitchen access was also limited.
