    Good 6.0
    Better hostels in the city
    Deposit required for keys. Day before I stopped by letting front desk know I would be checking out around 4 a.m. Front desk claimed it was no problem as it's open "24/7". When the time came, I waited around 5 minutes for someone to come to the desk (they have a "please be patient, 3-5 minutes" sign). but no one ever did. Just dropped off keys w/ a note. Room was ok. Clean, but peeling paint on ceiling. Location is also meh. What's good is that it's close to the Canal street car but that can take you only so far because of the Hard Rock hotel collapse.

    Exceptional 10.0
    They were very friendly and yet still running all the times to serve all the customers. I went to a conference E-Learn in Marriott by staying in the hostel. Price was good, I loved burritos, burrito lady and the helping people were helpful in all manners. I could stay there if I need it again. THANK YOU ..
