    Absolutely amazing time and would do it again! Never stayed at a hostel before and was a little worried. The staff are beyond friendly, we got breakfast free each morning. They even went out of their way to give all those visiting thanks giving dinner! I cannot say how much I loved staying there!

    These cats just know how to treat a human. Everyone was fantastic except Christian but he ended up being like my best friend. So New Orleans just knows how to work a human into being better. Best stay I’ve had since I was a kid staying at my friends. This staff is what will keep hospitality alive. Thanks a lot. -Cam

    Quizby is such a neat hostel. Needed somewhere to stay for a night but ended meeting some cool people and extended the stay 2 more nights. Overall staff were super chill, helped out with food/tour recommendations, (best gumbo ever). Great travelers there to socialise with alongside cheap local beer. Great free breakfast too. The only thing I could recommend to improve on is the pillows but overall great hostel. If I ever make it back to NOLA will be staying here again. Cheers guys

    Had an amazing 2 nights in what was probably the most comfortable bed I’ve been in… ever? And that’s including some 4- and 5-star hotels. A great friendly atmosphere at the 24/7 bar with fun other travelers. Staff had great recommendations for the nearby area. This was the ultimate hostelling experience, and if you’re trying out hostels for the first time, this might be one of the top choices out there. It /was/ missing a communal kitchen but I’ve managed just fine without.

    Friendly staff, key card entry to rooms and the main entrance at night. Clean, comfortable bed and a 20 minute walk from the French Quarter with easy access to the streetcar if needed. Breakfast was simple, bagels, donuts or cereal with coffee, but still a nice way to start the day. Would have been nice to have had an outdoor area and more showers. Would definitely book female only room in future as there were quite a few older men in the co-ed who seemed to have been staying for a while.

    The staff is accommodating. 20 mins away (by walk) from French quarter and 4 mins from the most beautiful museum I’ve been to. However, the pillow, bed, and the noise from the drunk guest in the lobby are quite annoying especially during midnight. Unfortunately, my room is adjacent to the stairs and the guest are kinda in a marathon when going up and down. The hostel is serving a decent breakfast. Considering the price, I will stay again in this hostel.
