About New Orleans
New Orleans is a city in the state of Louisiana. Also known as "NOLA" or "The Big Easy", New Orleans is a city of celebration, food, music, and art. The population of the city is about 300,000, with over 1.2 million people living in the whole metropolitan area. New Orleans was hit hard by the hurricane Katrina in 2005, but the main city area has been masterfully reconstructed and there are several New Orleans hostels that are now open. The hostels in New Orleans are spread out, but the selection is good.
New Orleans has heaps of things to do. If you enjoy music, you could easily spend weeks in the city, just going to different districts and enjoying the massive music selection available. Even though the biggest things in the city are jazz, blues, and soul, there's a place for every kind of music here. The most known places to go for a music fan are Bourbon Street and Frenchman Street, but the whole city has unique places to offer and you just need to get out there and find them. You should be able to find interesting places in the same neighborhood as your hostel in New Orleans.
The French Quarter in New Orleans is well worth visiting, as it is the oldest section of the city. You can take a stroll in the historic areas of the city and enjoy the architecture (colonial and victorian) and many historic sites. There is also a strange New Orleans "knack" for Voodoo, so you can also visit one of these specialty shops if you're interested.
Even though New Orleans is not considered a dangerous destination to travel to (at least if you stay in the touristy areas), remember to keep your wits with you; there are plenty of hustlers, scammers, and pickpockets around.
Hostels in New Orleans are fairly inexpensive for a large city, so it should be easy to find what you're looking for within your budget.
A swamp tour is a "must do" trip out of the city.

New Orleans Hostel - Marquette House
"If you're after a hostel that's not a full-on party house nor a sterile dorm, you'll find a good balance at Marquette House. The female dorms are located above the main hostel building off Carondelet Street and the male dorms are located behind in adjacent mini buildings, where there are four to six dorm beds downstairs and the same number upstairs. Marquette House doesn't pretend it offers lots of amenities, but it does the job as a...
India House Backpacker's Hostel
"India House Backpacker's Hostel is a mismatched, typical New Orleans house with a bit of a rundown feel to it but with lots of room and good areas to chill and meet others. It has lots of character and great potential and with a bit more thought and effort it could be a lot better. The Location The hostel is a bit of a way from the action but the Canal Stree. streetcars, which leave from almost right outside, mean that it's only a...
St. Vincent's Guesthouse
"This is an unbelievable value for the money. I stayed by myself so I had a private room (two beds, which actually turned out to be two entire bedrooms with a private bathroom to boot). This is a really impressive building. I just saw it in a movie called Candyman, and the school in this movie is actually St. Vincent's. The bed was comfortable. The staff were super friendly and very helpful. I had a phone in my room (that never happens when I...

"AAE Bourbon House Hostel is hospitable, friendly, and small enough to allow socializing. It is a good choice in terms of cleanliness and atmosphere; however, it is a little secluded from the busier areas. The Location The hostel is located within walking distance of the Garden District, and it is about a ten-minute walk from an airport shuttle drop-off point. It is also about ten minutes away from the St. Charles street streetcar. The...

Joe & Flo's Olde Candelight Hostel
"Joe & Flo's Olde Candelight Hostel is the closest hostel to Bourbon Street, only half a mile north of the Big Easy's most (in)famous strip.

"Great place for the price - Lovely piece of creole history in a great neighbourhood and for a great price. Charley & Kim are extremely welcoming and helpful. I found myself without a place to stay on mardi gras morning and although they were fully booked they brought me in out of the rain, offered me a couch for the night, warmed me up with some coffee and let me leave my stuff there so i could enjoy the day. Hope to visit again one day!"...

"Disgusting - the room was full of bugs, which were probably coming from a hole in the wall in the bathroom. in particular, i killed two bugs which were literally as big as my thumb. needless to say that I didn't sleep during the night. the night receptionist to which i showed one of this bugs says that it is no problem, because it is not a roach, but a "water bug," and offered me some ice cubes (yes, ice cubes) as a form of compensation. the...
New Orleans Travel Tips & Suggestions
They have the best food and music -- this is one of the great places to experience in life. I love this city -- voodoo, vampires, and the French Quarter. They knew how to pick their ground to defend or ride out the storm with minimum damage. There's wonderful history -- you cant pass this place up. You will love the Big Easy and will always be going back for more.
I found the place full of mystery, enchanting, yet dangerous. I had a great time during my short stay there. I was there pre-Katrina and don't know how the city's changed, but when I was there I noticed that you must have sharp senses at all times and be careful when driving because one wrong turn and you're in the hood. I think that visiting the city's worth in the end it because it is a delight.
I love New Orleans.
Ever seen or been in a city with soul? Character, history, food, music, people, beads, booze, and fun -- the one and only New Orleans. It's a must visit and you'll return.

If your idea of a good time is to be in a place with drunken vomiting idiots, getting robbed, and constant pan handling then N.O is for you.
I've been to New Orleans four times and I can't get enough. My heart and prayers go out to them as they go through post-Katrina rebuilding. This is one of the greatest cities in America and if you want to party til dawn, they will lead you the way!! I think everyone who truly loves this city will make reservations to go there in the very near future, I know I am. Just like New York after 9/11, they are going to need the business and tourist dollars.
As well as seeing the city itself get out and see some of the old plantations along the Mississippi if you have transport - some are really interesting and beautiful and there's a lot of history behind them.
Got back a week ago, and I'm already planning a trip back. Between the beautiful sites during the day and the partying by night, I barely slept the whole time I was there. I'd sugest New Orleans to anyone, young or old.
New Orleans is definitely my place of choice when it comes to traveling. It's truely enchanting. Don't miss it...

New Orleans is a great place, for sho. But plz don't go to Burbon Street more than once - tis not worth it. Frenchman Street, Decatur, and Magazine kick ass tho - had a REAL good time!
I love New Orleans. I plan to move to this beautiful city. Go down, you won't regret it at all. Party or relax, you'll love it.
Avoid the Steamboat Natchez. Ugh, just awful. Don't know what we were thinking. Haunted History tours usually have the best tour guides. They're very theatrical and fun. However, if it's a really busy night they may call guides from other companies who don't have as much experience. It's hard not to have a good time here. Get out and do your own thing. You won't regret it.
