What is a hostel?

At The Quisby you’ll find a 24 hour front desk and bar, daily housekeeping, and free breakfast every morning. What makes us different is all of our rooms have bunk beds. You can book a room privately (and have four beds to yourselves) or book an individual bed in a shared room with other travelers. These people are strangers now, but soon they’ll be your friends. 

How far are you from the French Quarter?

Exactly one mile. The streetcar will get you there in less than 15 minutes. Your feet will do it in about 20. (check out our location page)
