    First hostel experience and am worried about how high they have set the bar for my future hostel experiences. The 24hr bar is an excellent addition and really promoted a social environment to connect with fellow travellers from all over. Clean and friendly, charming staff.

    I have nothing bad to say about this place. I was initially staying at the Quisby then I visited this hostel and immediate switched over because it was so much more live. I love the staff especially. They’re friendly outgoing and can talk to you about anything. Payton, Justin, and Vin were my favorites. I loved their pub crawls. If I’m ever back in New Orleans I’m only staying at this Hostel.

    Best hostel in the USA so far!! I loved the atmosphere, everyone (guests and employees alike) were super nice! Great location, always felt safe. Also, the rooms were impeccable and we had a private bathroom in our 4-bed room, which was awesome. You won't regret booking this hostel!!!

    Best hostel I've tried so far. The staff is really nice and they will help you with anything you need. The place is clean and the location is about 15 minutes walk from Canal St. The bar in the lobby is open 24/7 and they got a huge selection of liquors with great a drink menu. I'd like to say a huge thank you to the whole team for this experience, clearly amazed by my stay! Cheers

    Very clean & modern looking hostel. Bunk beds were strong and wooden (instead of metal) which makes them a lot quieter in a shared room. Bar had great Happy hour. The lift is convenient with heavy bags. The staff were helpful with booking tours and answering questions. One staff member recommended a place to eat which turned out to be the best meal we had! Well before checkout the cleaners knocked on our door to clean the room. Perhaps better communication with the front desk would fix this.

    This was my first time in a hostel. I usually travel with my Wife but I can see doing this again when travelling alone. It was affordable and clean. I would expand the breakfast options more. Taking a shower left the floor wet each time which caused me to need a fresh towel every time. I would add a shower curtain for the gap or provide water absorbing mats to each room. Nice happy hour. Local tours, food and bars were listed which made my stay in the Big Easy better. I recommend the Quisby.

    Such a quirky and friendly place to stay. Staff are caring, rooms are well maintained with secure lockers. Only downside, which is not the Hostels fault at all, is the location is in a very homeless part of New Orleans and about a two minute walk from the hostel you have to pass under a highway bridge in order to get to anywhere. The underpass is riddled with homeless people who harassed my girlfriend and I on multiple occasions which wasn’t pleasant and sometimes put us off going out entirely.

    The Quisby’s a great place to stay. It’s nice and clean and the beds are really comfortable. The locker space is huge too. Not much privacy in the bottom bunks. A little privacy curtain would be a nice touch. The atmosphere of place is ok. There weren’t really that many people hangin’ out in the common area so that was kind of a drag. But, the 24/7 bar was pretty cool. The staff was nice and would answer questions, but I noticed that most didn’t go out of their way to talk to you.
