Lovely home hostel
I love this hostel! With a southern home vibe, Site 61 is surprisingly clean and spacious. The building retains an antebellum feel but because it's recently renovated so you still get the modern comfort. My favorite part about this hostel is that the hallway has eight private bathrooms, so you have the toilet, the sink, and shower in each bathroom - there's virtually no way you won't find an unoccupied bathroom! The bed is super comfortable too, which is absolutely perfect for resting after a whole night of debauchery. The hostel's only potential downside is its somewhat sketchy neighborhood, but really, you should be hopping on and off your cab ride and enter the building anyway, so it's not like you'll be walking around outside too much. Oh yeah, it's only a 10 minute ride from French Quarter and the Garden District, so if you are a tourist in NOLA who don't want to splurge on hotels, Site 61 is your pick!

Great hostel for the proce
I thought this was a great hostel, especially considering it was my first experience staying in one. The location was a little sketchy, but we didn't have any problems with people messing with us or our car. I just wouldn't walk anywhere alone. Even the staff will tell you the same. The hostel was very clean and the bathrooms were updated. I wish the temperature was cooler in the rooms because I tend to heat up at night, but there is a box fan in each room. Breakfast was small- cereal, bagels, oatmeal, orange juice, and coffee. For me it was fine, but my stepdad thought we would be having a buffet (haha). There's balconies on the top floor to sit and relax, along with a nice patio on the back that is fenced in. Overall, we really enjoyed our experience and would definitely stay here again!

Would stay again
Site 61 Hostel was awesome! It opened only 7 months ago, so everything is practically new. The owner was so sweet and was very willing to give advice. The room we stayed in was a private two person room, but it had a pyramid bunk bed so it probably could've fit three comfortably. There were 6 private full baths (shower, toilets and sink) on the second floor so there was never a wait. My only complaint is that it wasn't in the best location, but it was within walking distance of the street car! There was street parking outside the hostel where we left our cars.
