I really enjoyed the house itself, all the historic detail that has been preserved over the years. The room and bathroom were a good size. The bed was terrible, the mattress was very old and lumpy, had a squeaky bed frame and pillows were not comfortable at all. Also, the lack of a ceiling fan made the room stuffy.
Owner and her assistant were awesome. Perfect stay. Wonderful breakfast, lovely furnishings. When booking on line, cheaper rooms are in renovated section, spacious, comfortable yet modern and "sterile" If you want historic, upgrade to older sections.
O hotel é muito bonito, os quartos são grandes e bem aconchegantes. Os funcionários são ótimos. Cobram estacionamento.
Localização. O hotel está a poucos minutos do French Quarter, e o acesso pode ser feito num passeio agradável de bonde.
Funcionários muito prestativos, bom quarto, boa piscina. Café da manhã muito ruim, era melhor não oferecer. Localização- não é longe da bourbon street, mas não fiquei tranquilo andando à noite nas redondezas do hotel
O hotel é muito simpático, limpo e os funcionários (especialmente o Toni e o um manager cujo nome não recordo mas sei que é de Seatle) são muito atenciosos, preocupados e disponíveis para ajudar no que for necessário. Os quartos são agradáveis e espaçosos.
- only 10 minutes by car from French quarter - bus station near (30 minutes to French Quarter) - the boss/owner was extremely unfriendly (there were like 5-6 situations where he just snapped at us "Maaaaam my office is closed!" or "Maaaam this isnt a 24h reservation" etc. really extremely unfriendly, and we really didn't ask for anything special. (he was friendly to our male friends though so you might be fine if you're a guy ..) - Breakfast: Coffee (coffee only isn't breakfast, although it said online that breakfast was included) - apparently in a bad area (taxi driver said so), I wouldn't walk around when it's dark - for those with a car it's ok I guess but wouldn't stay more than 1-2 days it's really not a nice hotel
Friendly and attentive staff and a great value. Too far from the quarter and in a sketchy part of the city.
You would not know it by the sort of average photos that I saw on-line, but Site 61 was better in many ways than I expected. I hadn't stayed in a hostel for many years, so was not sure what I would find for such a (compared to hotels) low price. What I found was a well-run hostel operated by a kind and personable staff, a half dozen immaculate (and seemingly brand new) bathrooms (clean toilets, showers with great water pressure and warm water) and rooms that were also clean. i also enjoyed chatting with the staff in the mornings before I headed out for my day. Love this place ! I don't love bunk beds, but who does? Just one of the things one must deal with when staying in a hostel. But as far as bunk beds go, mine was comfortable!
I enjoyed that it was setup like a hostel. Community shower and restroom with a community kitchen. Also, I enjoyed that they offer ear plugs right at the front desk. So in case that you don't want to hear your neighbors then you can use them to get some beauty rest. The air conditioning in there was not cooling very well and it was slightly I unclmfortingto have to wait to go to the restroom. Make sure you get up early to use it.
