Property Description

History
Built in 1831, Madame Isabelle’s family moved into the property at the turn of the century, in the 1900’s. Her family expanded and decorated the house before Madame Isabelle’s father passed it down to her. Madame Isabelle and her husband continued to renovate the house until they left the city in 2002.

The house is tastefully ornamented and furnished, staying faithful to the architectural characteristics typical of old New Orleans houses in the area. As we are proud of every single detail that makes this house special, we encourage you to enjoy every part of it and we welcome you to feel at home during your stay.

Location
Once you venture out of the house, a vibrant neighborhood welcomes you. Delicious restaurants and local bars share the streets with Creole cottages and shotgun houses. Though set in a quiet area, thriving nightlife is easily accessible from Madame Isabelle’s House. Frenchmen Street is only five minutes away by foot, Bourbon Street is within ten minutes walking distance, and Canal Street, which connects you to Mid-City and Uptown, twenty minutes away by foot. If you would like to explore more than the downtown area without heading all the way to Canal Street, there is a bus stop conveniently located at the corner of the street that can transport you to any of the city’s many renowned tourist destinations.

Rooms and dorms
Dormitory rooms as well as private rooms are available. There are two and three person private rooms in the house. Almost all of our private rooms are equipped with a cable TV, a refrigerator, and a private bathroom. All beds are equipped with new, 8-inch mattresses and linens; however, you may not want to stay in your room for too long as the hidden courtyard garden awaits you, replete with an outdoor deck and a Jacuzzi hot tub.

You must be 18 years of age or older to stay in a dorm. If accompanied by a parent, kids are welcome to stay in private rooms. No exceptions.

Guests over 40 years of age will be welcomed to stay in the private rooms but not be allowed to stay in a dorm room.

We strive to maintain a comfortable environment for our guests and try to avoid two major hassles in a common hostel - noise and smoke. Quiet hours are between 20:30 and 8:00. Two communal areas will be open during the quiet hours. We keep a smoke-free environment except in the smoking room that is equipped with a TV and an air conditioner/ heater.

Thank you for choosing Madame Isabelle's House in New Orleans. We will do our best to serve you and hope you have an enjoyable and memorable experience in this great city.

Madam Isabelle’s is by far the BEST hostel in New Orleans ⚜️ And on my top 3 in the United States! It’s a huge home that feels like a tropical resort with its lush backyard that includes ponds and a jacuzzi. Gorgeous upstairs deck w a swing chair and large outside couch. The bedrooms are cozy and really comfortable and the kitchen is super nice! I usually plan my holidays coming to this hotel because the owner always does something nice for the holidays!

Fabulous

Great hostel in a really good location. Loved the backyard and the shared spaces. The facilities were all modern and clean. We stayed in the three person room which is very small for three - it’s definitely a double which has had an extra bed shoved in. It was still a fine room to have but required a lot of manoeuvring! Because the hostel seemed to be mainly staffed by volunteer travellers who are passing through, there isn’t the staff knowledge that some places have.

The common living area for the hostel and the backyard are excellent. I stayed in the dorm. Dorm bathroom needed new shower curtain and to be thoroughly cleaned bc mildew. The female dorm space has 8 bunks, two connected rooms in the basement of the hostel. I didn't get much sleep due to someone snoring loud during my entire stay. Bunk 5's reading light was broken, which made it difficult. The majority of the time I was getting ready/ coming back at night, had to use flashlight to find my stuff.
