    Really enjoyed my time at the Quisby. The staff and people were really friendly spent lots of time sat in the bar ‘til the early hours of the morning drinking, chatting playing games and singing. I would highly recommend The Quisby and for if I’m ever to return to New Orleans I shall look to make a return to The Quisby.

    Such a lovely hostel! The room I was sharing was very comfortable and the staff were amazing! I think my only nit pick would be I think they may need more variety of their breakfast.

    Nice place, nice 4bed dorm room, friendly and helpful reception/bar staff, great breakfast of assorted bagel, pastries, cereals etc. Easy ride on streetcar through to French Qtr, and beyond, which runs till early. Only issues, I had to ask cleaners (twice) to remove all the dirty towels piled up on floor, and in bathroom, from previous guests. Also the dorm floor was positively filthy, not mopped in 3months for sure. I walked the 5 steps to bathroom and back a couple times, feet totally black!

    One of the best atmospheres I’ve experienced at a hostel, the people were great! Breakfast was unreliable unfortunately which really let them down given it was included in the price and one of the reasons I chose to stay. Good location, area is a little dodgy at night but fine to walk around during the day. Cleanliness was very good, towels were very small but manageable. All round very good Hostel and would recommend especially for solo travellers looking to make friends.

    Spend the extra 20 a night to get a place closer to the center. All they have is a bar and a small common area that gets very busy. I work online and it was difficult as well as the wifi wasn’t that great. Area is not the greatest. But the place was very clean and very college dorm aesthetic. They said we would get a city view, and it was the wall of the Popeyes next door. Also, everything in the area closes super early.
