Site 61 is wonderful and somewhat against the grain hostel that is much more like a family/group Air B&B than your traditional party style hostel. In my month working there I got to make wonderful connections with both the staff and various guests. It's not located as centrally as some hostels but the nearby street trolly makes the French Quarter easily accessible. My only complaint could be that the hostel doesn't have an oven which was more of an issue of space than anything done on the part of the staff.

Thanks so much for the wonderful experience,
Adrian

I just loved this hotel. I'm sure you will feel at home. The environment is clean, the rooms have no more than 6 beds. The hostel is halfway between City park and French Quarter.
If you want more details you can sent me message ;)

I had a great time at Site 61! Everyone is super friendly, the work is simple, and scheduling is flexible. I highly recommend Site 61 as a home base for exploring the rest of New Orleans, which is an incredible city in itself. I loved it here so much that I extended my stay a full month beyond what I had originally planned :)
