“Best hostel I stayed at in USA – Great hostel. I had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. Clean rooms with big comfortable beds and en suites-perfect place to come back to after a long day of exploring New Orleans. Situated in between the garden district and the french quarter – walking distance to both!”
”The Quisby’s location, staff, cleanliness and amenities gave great value. Stay here if you want to get to the heart of New Orleans easily but don’t want the hassles. The 6-person dorm room I stayed in was clean, and I really liked having the shower/toilet, and sink, en suite (not shared by whole floor). Other roomies were courteous and quiet, and all the other guests were self-absorbed. Absolutely no hassles. Great!”
“Cleanest hostel ever! I really liked the rooms in this hostel as they were modern and clean and had an ensuite. The staff are friendly and the bar area is quite small but just the right size for meeting people. Location wise its about a 20-30 minute walk into the French Quarter which is fine in the daytime although I probably wouldnt have done it alone at night – get a Lyft or Uber! There are also a lot of bars around the location of the hostel and on Magazine street to check out.“
“Great stay at the Quisby. That staff was present at every moment to answer any question. Not located in the center of the town (20 minutes walk) but the streetcar right across the street takes you there in a couple of minutes. A great ambiance, clean and confortable place, I’d stay here again with no doubt !”

USA TODAY and SOUTHERN LIVING both named us to their Top Ten places to stay in New Orleans lists. We’re pretty stoked. Plus they said nice things about us which, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love: “A major upgrade from the no frills travel experience usually associated with hostel travel, The Quisby spotlights local art, a […]
