I stayed at India House for Thanksgiving 2017.
The staff is super friendly. They served us an amazing Thanksgiving Dinner!!
It is great value for money with super cheap hangover smashing breakfast.
Location wise it is really close to tram stop which and takes around 30 min to reach french quarter or bourbon st.
Cleanliness is good enough considering the amount you are paying.

But the best part is the people you meet in the common area. You will come across people from different countries and cultures and create an instant bond with them.

I’m definitely going back!

My daughter and i stayed at India House on a trip to NO to visit University of New Orleans. We stayed in a quad room with bath. It was the Conti room. The room, including bath, were extremely clean. The beds were comfortable enough. We brought towels with us, but they provided towels. The air conditioner worked well and we didn’t hear any noise at night despite the hostel being busy.

We didn’t eat there so i can’t comment on the food. The hostel is very close to a trolley stop. The location is very convenient. The hostel is across from an elementary school so parking is a challenge during school dismissal, but not a problem any other time.

I’ll definitely return to the India House Hostel.

Stayed at India House in October 2017. I really liked it, it's got the true hostel atmosphere. Cheap beds, relaxed setting, great staff and people. Good and cheap breakfast. The hostel arranged a tour to see KISS live. Met a lot of cool people and great experience all in all.

This hostel is bigger than it seems, with a nice kitchen full of utensils to use, a pool, friendly staff and such, a 1min walk away from the Street Car. You get to meet people in the common areas, which is a good thing about hostels. At the same time, the same people can make your stay a little worse: it's a hostel, so expect it to be a little noisy (it was a common complain there, especially with doors opening and closing late at night); dishes and kitchen utensils available are sometimes not properly washed by guests so you'll have to wash them again, etc. It could be cleaner also, but I would stay here again.

Room Tip: pick a room away from the common doors/areas

This was one of the coolest hostels I've stayed. Super cheap and good meal deals. The staff were sooo laid back and easy to chat to. At night there was movies playing in the sofa room and the staff sometimes got out a piano and sung along with guests. A very very relaxed vibe which fits the New Orleans jazz scene. Room was a bit smelly and air con was very loud but this wouldn't put me off staying again. Thanks India House!
