This place was fantastic during Wrestlemania weekend. It was close enough to walk to all of the events and Bourbon Street. The owner who is almost always there was incredibly friendly and helpful finding places to eat and check out in my downtime. The Hostel itself is very clean and comfortable. It feels more like a home then the dorm feeling most hostel's I've stayed in have. I really couldn't recommend this place more.

This was my first time staying in a hostel and was it was an amazing experience! Getting to Auberge from the airport was extremely easy and affordable (only a $33 cab ride not including tip). We arrived before checking in but Lucy and Robert (the owner) were very accommodating. When you check in they give you the low down of the area, where they are situated and things to do around town. The street car is very close, and runs very frequently.
The rooms are huge and are well kept. Even the kitchen was always clean and has a dishwasher. In the ladies room they supply a hair dryer and a section with shampoo, conditioner, and other grooming needs that others no longer needed. What I loved about the hostel was that it was away from the party of the French Quarter but not too far away that it would be a pain to get to. You can tell right away by the upkeep and the decor that Robert takes great pride in his hostel. I totally recommend and look forward to coming back next time I am in town.

One of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. It felt like I was at home.

The house was awesome. It is a huge, cozy, 3 story home with a great backyard and front patio for hanging out. There is a big kitchen, a cute little reading room on the second floor and a TV in the office you can watch. I think there is even a guest house out back if I recall.

Every guest was respectful, courteous and chill. It was immaculate (cleaned once a day), had a great charm and I felt safe. Beds were comfy, sheets were clean.

There are two beach cruiser bikes you can rent for the day! Or you can take the trolley to the French Quarter (about 10-15 min away). The owner was great at helping us figure out things to do as well.

Great price, great vibe, good people. 10/10 would stay here again.

This boutique hostel is owned and operated by Rob, a born and raised local who is very helpful and friendly.

Location = 5 Stars! It is 1 block away from the street car station, 2 blocks from a bus stop that can take you anywhere the street car can not, and is centrally located between the french quarter and the up-and-coming Magazine Street venue. It is also very close

Friendly = 5 stars! I went for St. Paddy's Day and everyone was so friendly and kind. All the guests were really respectful of each other despite all the partying going on across the street.

Fun = 5 stars... seriously, it's New Orleans. How could it not be fun? Plus, the place is an old antebellum style house with some unique antique furniture accents making the stay enjoyable and historic.

Cleanliness = 5 stars. I saw Rob cleaning all the time and the place was always spotless.

I definitely recommend going here over any other hostel in the area!

I had never stayed in a hostel before so I came in not knowing what to expect. At check in, Robert (the owner) went through a lengthy conversation about where I was in the city and what interesting things were around. He even gave me a map with notes explaining the train system. He was just as accessible throughout the length of my stay.

I stayed in a mixed dorm with 5 other travelers and they were all very cool people. I got into the room and found my bedding and a towel folded neatly on the foot of the bed. This is a plus as it made me more confident that everything was clean.

All in all, I loved my experience here. The staff is very friendly and you can tell they have a love of the city. The people I met at the hostel were awesome as well and we all gelled together really well. It made me kind of sad to leave but I know I will be back. I can't say enough about this place so if you are looking for a well-priced hostel with close proximity to public transportation, this is definitely your place!

I arrived at this hostel after a long bus ride (8 hours) around 10pm. I had looked around New Orleans, and I saw that a lot of the other hostels were either riddled with bed bugs or didn't allow late check in. This place also appealed to me since you HAVE to have an out-of-state student ID, which I figured meant most of the people there would be around my age.

Now this hostel is several stories high, and appears to have once been a nice little house. There are all female rooms and mixed rooms, a large bathroom for each gender (that has two stalls and two showers), and you also get your own individual key for whatever room you're staying in. In the mixed dorm where I was, there were six double bunk beds that looked to be twin sized. This room looks larger than the all-female room, FYI. The bunks were made of a black metal, which I only mention because they were murder, MURDER, on my feet after they were blistered from walking around so much. If you're on the top bunk (like I was), and attempting not to step squarely on a blister, you will shake and rattle the bed as you go up, possibly waking up the person sleeping on the bottom. I was actually whimpering as I climbed up every night, I was in so much pain from the metal ladders.

There are lockers outside of the rooms, right next to the parlour.  The first night I got in, they were all occupied, and the second night, I realized that my bag seemed to be too big to fit in them. I already had a lock I used to lock my bag (small, lightweight TSA approved lock), that I just decided to use while I stored my bags on the bed. I believe you do have to have your own key/lock for the lockers. The parlour was a neat idea, a small room with a couch and windows that looked out over the street that brought in a lot of natural light. There were books and board games, though I didn't see anyone during either while I stayed there.

There are two bathrooms stalls, two sinks, and two showers. I never had any issue showering or using the restroom, except for the fact that there was never toilet paper in the girls' room. I had to sneak across twice to the guys' bathroom to get a roll, and I was hardly even in the hostel. The showers had a great flow and they were warm, and there's even a provided towel (which I've come to see is sort of unusual). I would say that it was sort of annoying that whenever I showered, the fabric curtain stuck to my legs because of the swirl of warm air from the shower and cooler air from the outside. I think adding a little magnetized strip on the bottom would help that though, and it's just an annoyance.

PROS:
Very affordable, and I think less than $30.
There was a ceiling fan to help stir the air around in the mixed gender room.
Free breakfast! Though it was pretty much what you'd expect: eggs, bread, peanut butter and jelly.
Only about a block from the St. Charles streetcar.
CLEAN and comfortable beds. I was never too cold or too warm. (but small, so if you're taller than 5'5, you might have an issue sleeping with your legs straight out).
Beautiful, older house.
Spacious bathrooms, and a warm shower with a good flow.
Free towel is provided.
Free WiFi, that was actually pretty fast.

NEUTRAL:
It's an older house, so you really can hear the creaks and beats of people walking around outside and opening/closing doors. I also woke up a lot because I heard people talking in the room next door, but it was never unbearably loud. I'm a light sleeper, though, so this could just be an issue for me.
Must have a valid student ID (not a con for me, but I'm sure for someone else it is).
Lights out on Saturday was around midnight, and around 10pm on a weekday.
This is not the kind of hostel that you could probably hang out in all day, because they don't really seem to do a lot of activities. I was cool with this because I spent my days exploring the city.
It seems like the bunks are first come, first serve, and not assigned.

CONS:
Girls' bathroom ran out of TP A LOT.
Lockers are too small for larger backpacks and luggage.
Metal bunk beds are agony on blistered feet.

THE VERDICT:
Quiet, clean, and spacious. This place is filled with interesting people and is just what I wanted. I wasn't looking for a party type of hostel while I stayed here, just friendly people and a comfortable place to lie down at night. Checking in and checking out was very easy and uncomplicated, and the manager of the hostel was very informative and fairly friendly. I met people from Paris, Sweden, Australia, and Great Britain while I was here.

Best hostel I have ever stayed in.

The staff is awesome. The owners wife (?) took all of us out to bourbon street and showed us around.

Security is great. Location is safe - very close to the tram.

Clean, quiet, fun.

Will definitely go back!
