Madame Isabelle's House - A Charming Hostel in an Idyllic Setting

Madame Isabelle’s House is the Crescent City’s newest hostel, and I can't fathom any other hostel in town coming close to being as fabulous as this one. The staff is extremely approachable, helpful, and social. They know their city and will hook you up with numerous events if you desire.

I stayed in a 5-person dorm room, occupying a solo bed in front of the AC. The room has an en suite bath, and each bed is adorned with a unique privacy screen. During my visit, the bed was comfy, wifi worked like a charm, and the clean room was spacious enough to not feel cramped.

You will find yourself situated in a lovely residential area known as Marigny. It's within walking distance of Louis Armstrong Park, the French Quarter, and Frenchmen Street. I highly recommend dining at Dreamy Weenies (incredible vegan dog selection) and neighborhood bar/restaurant Buffa's.

One of the biggest draws is the back yard, which mimics a tropical paradise. You will be enveloped in lush greenery complete with a hot tub. If the Big Easy wasn’t such a stimulating city with so much to offer, I would have been compelled to stay put.

Book directly through their website to receive a discount based upon the number of days you stay.

I will let the photos do the talking from here to depict how beautiful this place is, and to clearly show that you won't feel as though you are staying in a hostel.

Meet the hostel's biggest party animal:)
