The Quisby

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beds are comfy, Lobby Bar is excellent, staff are terrific. The location is wonderful, lots of stuff to do and things to see and people are always helpful pointing out things you might otherwise Miss. Hit the Saint Charles Tavern while you're there it's just down the street, great food and cheap too

You won’t find a cleaner and more sophisticated hostel. The noise at night was my only negative, but it seemed there were some very young international travelers staying at the time. Otherwise the staff is great, music great, design great. The ensuite bathroom is lovely as well. A hostel that feels more like a hotel.

I stayed here while attending a wedding. The staff were great and the rooms were clean. The beds were unbelievably comfortable. The coffee was delicious. The atmosphere was very relaxed and casual which made me comfortable. Everyone was friendly and my stay here added to the quality of my trip.

Amazing service. So close to the streetcars. Fun happy hour and breakfast. Incredibly comfortable beds (I couldn't believe how wide they were!). Everything about our stay was incredible. And we had 10 people on our trip!

I loved to stay at the hostel. Everybody treated me and my friend really well. I was not feeling very good when I arrived there so they gave me some potatoes for free. They also answered all of my questions and gave me suggestions about places to visit around the city. They are located close to everything that you need to see and if you don't want to walk, you can just cross the street and take a street car, is gonna cost you only $3 for a ticket that you can use for 24h. The hostel is also really new and have a really nice aesthetics.

The Quisby will be my go-to accommodations for any trip I make to New Orleans in the future. Rooms are clean and modern, it's located directly on the St. Charles streetcar line, and a short hop to the French Quarter. The bar downstairs is a good place to meet people, and the free breakfast is very good. Top rate hostel.

Great location, good value. Average cleanliness, found some stains on the bedding. Can be super noisy at night depending on your neighbors - quiet hours don't exist or aren't enforced. Walls are very thin. Otherwise would recommend!

Good accomodation for cheap price. Streetcar to downtown are just outside the lobby of the Quisby. Frontdesk 27/7 avalaible and really kind. Rooms and restroom very clean. Close to superdome arena & smoothie center (5 minutes walk)

Cute, and clean. Beds were comfy. Almost too hipster for me, but it was fun and the front desk was great about check in, helping answer questions for us about the city, and holding our bags while we went to lunch after check out. It was not always quiet at night (weekend). Close to lots of stuff, and in a great neighborhood that is close to French Quarter but feels a little more realistic by comparison. Walking distance to Bourbon, but it's a long walk. Really close walk to the WW2 museum and a couple of very nice restaurants in the area. It is really expensive for a hostel, though, and if it hadn't been a holiday weekend I would have preferred a larger and more comfortable place for what I had to pay.

The location was the exactly one that I needed, just by the station o f the street car. The room was clean room, silent, organized, it had a good sized cabinet for keeping the bags, comfortable mattress, clean bathroom. Loved every minute.
