About Our Hostel
I can't wait to share my pride and joy with you! I started this hostel with the dream of meeting other travelers and providing them with some of the amenities I thought were missing in New Orleans' hostels at the time. I searched and searched and settled on this home based on its distance to public transportation, its layout, the services offered within such a close proximity, and its location, situated centrally between the French Quarter-Downtown and Garden District-Uptown. Let me make your stay in NOLA great!
The house is located one block from the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar stop on Euterpe Street and St. Charles Avenue, at the edge of the Lower Garden District. It is in an amazing location. Within a 5 block radius you have access to over 31 restaurants and bars several of which are 24 hours. The St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line runs 24 hours and brings you directly to the French Quarter and Bourbon Street (a 10 minute ride) as well as the CBD's nightclubs, St. Charles Avenue also hosts the majority of Mardi Gras parades during our festival season. You can hear the parades from the hostel.
Take the street cars to Canal Street and you can connect to New Orleans' famous cemeteries, the Riverwalk Outlet Center, and the Marigny with its famous Frenchmen Street. Or you can ride in the other direction to visit the Garden District, University Districts, Audubon Park, Black Pearl area, or Tulane and Loyola Universities.
If you prefer to walk, you can! New Orleans is the "smallest big city" you will find. Many hostel guests choose to walk almost everywhere they go. The Auberge is only a 20 min walk to Canal Street. It a few blocks from beautiful Coliseum Square Park. From there you can stroll down world famous Magazine street and venture into the amazing Garden District with its homes and fabulous architecture. A short walk in the other direction takes you to Lee Circle and many great new museums, such as the World War 2 museum, in a recently revitalized district. Are you here for a game? The Auberge is only a 15-20 minute walk to the Superdome / Smoothie King Center or take the Streetcar to Poydras street and walk from there. hostel hostelling backpacking backpacker travel guesthouse
