Hi Folks,

 

I seem to recall that someone on AU had stayed at the above hostel?

 

I notice that one of my favourite Cajun style bands is appearing there and so considering a visit.

 

Just seeking any tips on the hostel as a place to stay, any tips on best room, etc?

 

Thanks,

 

Ed.

I don't know anything about this particular hostel.  It might be just fine but it has been my experience that non HI hostels can be trouble.  If you decide to stay,  I would go for a private room.   Less chance that your night will be interrupted by drunks.   A bar on site can be a bad mix.

Thanks for your reply, I just now did a search on AU and found no mention of the hostel by anyone else.

 

Funny though, the combination of music, beer and a place to sleep was one of the big attractions for me!

 

I think it looks a fun place, but I am going to postpone my trip for now, anyway, and maybe take another Amtrak tour a little later.

 

I do use HI hostels as a first preference, and have stayed in several, stateside.

 

Ed.

The reviews on TripAdvisor seem to indicate that if you are the laid-back type, you will enjoy yourself. Especially if you can snag the $25 Booking.com special.
