    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!

    Stayed there during the coronavirus crisis. The staff took extra measures to keep us all safe and comfortable and they communicated very well which made us feel reassured. Would definitely go back when the pandemic is over!

    I can't say enough good things about the Quisby. I stayed here at the height of the COVID19 (at least, I hope it is!) outbreak where new updates and restaurant/bar closures were announced daily if not hourly. The staff here were extremely kind and understanding even though they were in rough circumstances as well. They switched to private accommodations for everyone at no extra cost, just out of their emphasis on the safety and health of their guests. Great people, lovely hostel.

    Good hostel. Good location. Normally has breakfast but not any more due to Covid. Clean hostel. Only wish that housekeeping would come to clean the ensuite bathrooms daily and change floor towels. Little expensive for New Orleans. Would stay again tho.

    It was a great place to stay. I felt that it was well located, right outside of the St. Charles streetcar line that made it accessible via public transportation. It also was optimally located into getting into the French Quarter as well as Magazine Street and the Audubon Zoo. The showers were shared, but among those who were using the same dorm - which made it feel nice to have a shower more personally accessible. Lockers were large enough to store all my belongings, including my carry-on.

    I wanted a bottom bunk. The room/roommate had an overwhelming foot and body odor. I was moved to another room which was much better but still had a top bunk. The bed was comfy but I fell off the ladder. The hostel is a good distance from the party area. There's local transit but you have to walk down the block. Maybe because of Mardi Gras there was a p**s smell on the block as strong as aroma therapy. It's next door to Popeyes and Wendy's. A HOMELESS MAN REQUESTED 'GIMME THAT CHICKEN BOX'.
