The building was built about 1912 as a family residence and rooming house. It is located on Hwy 61, which was the main highway into New Orleans, before the Interstate highway system and runs all the way to St. Louis, Mo. The building was designated Historic in 2014. Then it was redesigned and renovated, to add modern conveniences, such as air conditioning, ceiling fans, and more bathrooms, while preserving many early-20th century features. There are great restaurants nearby, free street parking, and convenient public transportation.

Hostel ignored two emails I sent after having an issue with payments. They still hadn’t replied to me until the day I was meant to be staying there. I tried to find somewhere else but it was Mardi Gras and every single place was booked up, so ended up having to go there anyway. The building was completely empty and no one answered the doorbell, or the phone. Had to pay huge amounts once we eventually found somewhere else to stay. Avoid at all costs

Very Good

Site 61 was a nice time:) Cass at reception was the best and so helpful! It was cool to stay in a historic house that survived Hurricane Katrina (you can even see the waterline on the wood). The location is not safe to walk outside around at night and it’s not located in a very fun/cool area. As a solo female traveler, I ended up ubering most places, especially at night. I loved the back patio and the tall ceilings of the old house!
