Guest Reviews

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I got there at midnight, after making sure with the owners that is ok.
Nobody answered. I was warned by the cab driver its a dangerous area so he stayed with me for the 30 minutes I was trying to call the number written. In my despiration, I knocked on the windows of the guests and finally one that was there got me in.
Since no one was there I had to sleep on the floor in the living room.
When I woke up the following day,I was given a single room as a compensation, and I was told I should not pay for last night (Thanks!).

A day later when I was checking out, the manager said I should not have recieved both "gifts" and I should have either pay(!) for that night or offered the single room, but not both.

In conclusion, stay away!

Old style building but kept in good condition very friendly and polite staff. Would recommend and would use again only thing I found sharing a bathroom was a pain but I knew that when I booked hostel. 10 to 15 minutes walk to bourbon st and river walk.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

There were many positives but also some negatives about our stay at Jo and Flo's. First off, and perhaps most importantly we had a broken bed, and it was VERY broken! This is a problem that really needs to be sorted, as i do not believe that some people would have accepted sleeping on it without complaint. Another fault was the shower which basically didnt work, it was nothing more than a drip... With a sign in the bathroom saying 'Do not wash hair in sink', this was in fact the only option...
These are the two main points that detracted from our stay.

The hostel was clean but a few small improvements could have made it appear cleaner e.g new shower curtain, toilet seat etc. They achieve the 'homely' style of decor well, however this is not really to our taste. The pillows left a lot to be desired. We had one each and it was so flimsy that we had to use towels as further support.

Positives: the facilities the hostel provided were excellent. Fridge in room was a nice touch, as well as use of the kitchen. Internet was excellent, laundry services were good and they provided shuttle services for an extra charge which was cheaper than taxis. Toiletry exchange is a nice touch for travellers. Secure locking system definitely added the safety factor.

The staff were always willing to help. On arrival we were told everything we needed to know as well as been given a map of attractions in the area which we used throughout our whole trip.

Location was good. 15-20minute walk from main action which was sometimes a bit much for us in the heat after a day of constant walking.

Overall, i think the hostel achieves what it sets out to do: provide reasonably priced accommodation and good services for travellers and those on a budget. We feel with just a lick of paint here and there the place could be a lot better however we would definitely return if travelling on a budget again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very friendly environment. Unfortunately, the listing is quite misleading...the hostel itself is rather run-down but I did feel pretty secure.
