    Got a private room for three for a weekend to attend a festival in town. Felt safe and that my belongings were safe for the entire stay. The staff there were super friendly and I met so many new friends staying here that I would not have met if I stayed elsewhere.

    Such a great location and layout. The bar downstairs was great, they have free coffee and tea and some little breakfast snacks. The first night they have us free crawfish and gumbo on another day. Staff were lovely ppl. Felt bad for how hectic the place was for Mardi gras. Btw, this hostel is in thee perfect location for Mardi gras!! We could see the parade from our window! The rooms lacked ventilation (windows didn't open) and no fan in bathroom so it got kinda stinky in there.

    Beds super comfortable and rooms really clean. All staff was friendly and theh have a 24hr bar and you get a free drink for staying. It's a little far from bourbon and the French quarter where I spent most my time but there's a blue bike rack right outside so made getting back and forth pretty easy. Definitely will stay again the next time I'm in town

    I really like the breakfast that guests could prepare for themselves. I arrive in the morning and left my stuff in the luggage room. The only think that was a little bit annoying was that check in was at 4pm and when I came at 4:30 pm they said they are still not ready and I have to wait until 5pm, but the receptionist saw that I am annoyed and changed the rooms and I could check in sooner than 5pm.

    For the most part I had a great experience at this hostel! The location is really good and the facilities are very clean. The free breakfast was a nice touch! It was also nice having a bar at the hostel with happy hour every day - definitely a great way to meet other guests! Security could be better though - the bar is open to non-guests, and since the doors to the dorm hallways don’t have locks, anyone can go through there - a girl’s backpack and some of my cash were stolen this morning.

    Just wished they had a kitchen but the location, bar, friendly staff and breakfast made up for it.

    Incredible place, with great guests, good security between the bar area and the upstairs rooms, and right along the parade route. Loved it all, shy of the situation of the first morning, where someone was sleeping in my assigned bed on check-in and I was kept waiting until after nightfall to be given a bed or room access. We all make mistakes, but this issue remains unresolved still, and would have me think twice about a next visit. All the best otherwise!

    I like to sample different hostels, and was pleased by Quisby. There's a smallish lounge area in the lobby where you might encounter a fun conversation. It'd be nice to have another seating area someplace else (i didn't want to disturb my roomies). 4-person dorm ... could be more cubbies by the coat rail, next to the beds. I would have included a sink in the toilet/shower space, and an outlet for a nightlight (one of those light-up Mardi Gras throws served that purpose).
